A guide to the essential eye makeup brushes - shapes, styles, and usage. 

For more details (and more fun!) watch the video tutorial below. 

The basics: There are 2 brushes you must have.

These are the perfect two brushes for beginners; as you can do so much with them. 

  • A flat domed eye shading brush
  • A fluffy blending brush

An eye shading brush is designed to 'lay it down' on the lid, brow bone, under eyes, and place into your crease.

You simply flip it different angles and press into the specific area you are working on. 

A fluffy blending brush blends and softens the shadows, giving you a more polished look. 

Then add:

  • A crease brush
  • A smudge brush
  • Liner brushes: angled, flat, pointed 
  • A blurring brush 


Keep dedicated/labeled brushes for light and dark shadows. 

All Simple Beauty Minerals brushes are synthetic, vegan and work fabulously for liquids, cremes and powders.


Too many brushes?

Create 3 Piles

  1. Brushes you never reach for. Ever. For whatever reason, you just don't love them.
  2. Brushes you reach for constantly. 
  3. Brushes you use hesitantly as you're not even sure what they do? 

Place pile 1 in a bag and put them away for a couple of months. Do you miss them? If not, give them away. 

Keep pile 2 at the ready. 

Place pile 3 close by and as you explore eye makeup techniques, you may realize you have that brush the tutorial is speaking about! Move to pile 2.
