If you are still wondering, what are the benefits of using a makeup brush then keep on reading.
The very first and the significant benefits of using a makeup brush is that, it helps you to have an even application. You might wonder about the girl from your classroom who always maintain an airbrushed base. Even after using different foundations if you are not having a good result then the reason for it is, that you are applying it in a wrong way. A good makeup brush can make sure that you are having product all over your face evenly. While using a low-quality brush or sponge you will see that some of the areas of your face has too much product. The reason is, those sponges or if you are using your hand, these are not capable to even things out. A high-quality makeup brush can easily solve this problem and can give you an even application.
Another great benefits of using a makeup brush is that you can get better coverage. If you do a side by side test for any foundation, you will see that a makeup brush gives you more coverage than a sponge. There are many beauty bloggers who have done sponge vs brush test in YouTube. You can check their videos also, for example Jeffree Star, Tati and many more. Your fingers or a sponge cannot not give you a full coverage look like a brush can do. Please note, if you are using a low coverage foundation or just a BB/CC cream you cannot expect full coverage.
Easy to Build Up
Not only, makeup brushes give you better coverage, but you can easily build up the coverage according to your preference. Now, not everyone wants a same level of coverage. There are some people who always love to have a full glam face whereas some just want to have a natural look. With a makeup brush you have more control on your products. A makeup brush not only helps you to apply a product but also controls how you can apply it. If you are applying an eyeshadow with your fingers there are chances you may accidentally put a lot of it and then it can ruin your whole look. However, when you are applying shadows with brushes then gradually you build up the colors and you have more beautiful eye looks. Same for the base makeup.
Lasts for Longer Period
Makeup sponges are obviously a great option compare to applying makeup with your fingers. On the other side, we think sponges don’t last for a longer period. First, they get dirty very easily and they can be torn out easily. But, if you are investing in a high-quality makeup brush like Sigma or Artis you are going to use it for years. Makeup brushes lasts for a longer period, only if you take proper care of them. In that way, though you may think you are spending a lot of money after a brush only but in long term you are saving a lot money. Rather than buying sponges frequently, it would be a wise decision to invest in a high-quality brush for one time.
If you are someone who can barely spend 10 minutes for makeup, then using a makeup brush will be a great solution for you. As we said before, makeup brush helps you to have an even application. You don’t have to spend hours to even it out. In the morning you can finish your go to look just in 10 minutes if you are using a good face brush. There are some brushes which can be used for multiple purposes, for example with the same brush you can apply your foundation, powder, contour, and blush. So, you don’t have to reach out for different brushes and waste your time.
So, here were some of the main benefits of using a makeup brush. Now, in the conclusion, we want to say all these benefits can be claimed only then when you are using a high-quality makeup brush. It is very common that we give after-thoughts whenever we are going to buy a brush. We fail to understand that this is the main thing that can help us to have a great makeup look whether it is a full glam makeup or natural.
It is very important that you buy brushes which have soft and natural hair bristles. If you are a vegan then you can easily opt for man-made hair brushes. Lastly, make sure you are keeping your brushes clean. Try to wash your make up brushes at least once/twice in a week. Brushes can easily grab dirt and bacteria; therefore, it is a must that you wash them properly.
