Amaze for: Even application of liquid bases (like cream foundations, BB creams and tinted moisturisers). This guy is the streak-free king! Team him with a pump of foundation and long sweeping brush strokes for flawless complexion – or under eye coverage.
Amaze for: Popping on powders, obvs. Designed for flawless makeup application (*runs out to buy one immediately*), these brushes are perfect for applying pressed or translucent powders/anything that’s NOT liquid.
Amaze for: Getting your highlighter on! The way this guy is shaped makes him perf for super precise application of powdered illuminators – small, sweeping brush strokes should do the trick! Tip: When you’re highlighting your nose, face him vertically and follow the bridge.
Amaze for: Smoothing liquid product – particularly in tricky creases. Oh hey, beauty invention of the decade! Use the spongy sides of blenders to smooth out your base, and their tips to get into hard-to-reach spots (the sides of your nose will forevz be thankful).
Angled eyeliner brush
Amaze for: Lining lashes with a gel liner. For cat-eye fans, teeny angled brushes are where it’s at. Simply dip into a gel liner or creamy shadow and follow your lash line, until you get the urge to flick (or not). A steady hand helps a LOT.
Amaze for: Bronzing, blushing or basic contouring. Kabukis up your even distribution game when you’re sculpting and contouring (buh-bye harsh lines). When using one to bronze, lightly apply in a number three shape – forehead, cheek then chin – rather than going H.A.M. all over your face.
Amaze for: Blending colour on your lids. Apply your shadow like a windshield wiper (a.k.a. with back and forth strokes) to slowly build up colour on your eye lids. This brush’s super small size means you can also use it on your lower lash line when attempting a smoky eye.
Amaze for: Doing the contour thing. This is THE tool to use on your cheekbones. Because of its shape you can hold it flat and swish blush into the apples of your cheeks, or alternatively, pop at an angle and apply darker, bronzer colours.
Amaze for: Keeping your brows lookin’ fine. Brushed up brows are having a moment, which means investing in a good quality groomer to help those bad boys stay put. Brush up with a teeny, targeted brow comb after filling them in, and set with a gel.
