Flathead Shadow Brush
Flathead Shadow Brush
This brush was a pleasant surprise. I received it, and at first had no idea what to do with it. I realized that it is perfect for applying shadow on the entire lid from the lash line to the brow line. The flat head applies a perfect coat of eyeshadow with a good color payoff.
I daily use it to apply my Luminizer along the top of my cheekbones and under my eyebrows: it picks up just the right amount of Luminizer and places it exactly where I want it to. This is my favorite use for it! Overall a fantastic, multi-purpose brush!
I'm not a makeup goddess like the others... so...
Apparently I don't know how to use this brush. I got it in a Bare Minerals Eye Club pack, and was excited to build my brush collection. This brush seems too big for practical use for me. I norammly use the Contour Shadow Brush and the Tapered Shadow Brush to apply my eye colors. To line, I use the Soft Focus Liner Brush. To "set" my eye colors, I actually sweep some Mineral Veil over my eyes as I do on the rest of my face, then use my eyeliner (again, I line twice) and mascara. I will try the other techniques the ladies mentioned, but this brush is just impractically wide for the way I apply my eye make up.
Pry it out of my cold dead hands ...
Of all the brushes in my very full inventory, this Flat Head Shadow Brush is my all time favorite. I have about 8 of them. How do I use them - flat for an all over cover from lash line to brow, sideways for the crease, sideways for the hilight color under the brow and also the finishing sweep for final sparkles if I used a matte color and want a bit more 'umph' My final word - you will have to pry this brush out of my cold dead fingers before I give it up.
One of my new favorite brushes!
I received this brush in a kit and didn't know what to make of it at first. The flat tip confused me a little. I thought it might make colors hard to blend, but boy was I wrong! The brush is so soft and luxurious it is mistake proof and beautifully blends the color!
I found an awesome use for this brush that I do every day now. I take the eye shadow that I am using as my crease color and use this brush to apply it not only along the crease, but also along my upper lashes (before applying liner shadow). This gives me the "V" look in a softer way and because I'm applying it along my upper lashes it gives me a super base for my liner. It creates a nice smoky, blended look with my eye liner.
I don't apply BE Eyeshadow without this brush!
This brush is ideal for the final sweep/blending of BE Eye shadows. I use it every time I apply BE Eye shadow as the final sweep across the entire lid to give me that final smooth blending of all color - just a few light sweeps across and over the entire eyelid instantly smoothes out and softens all edges of color and gives me this beautiful blended, finished look that I will not go a day without!
I Love Love Love this brush!
