There are some makeup brushes that are meant exclusively for eye makeup.

The bristles are soft but firm enough. The larger eye shadow brush is used to sweep the colour on the entire eyelid. The medium one is used to add colour in the region between the creases and lash line and also to highlight the brow bone. The small eye shadow brush is used to highlight the inner corners of the eye and also to apply eye shadow to the lower eye lid for eye makeup.

  • Eye Makeup Brush Set: The Crease Eye Shadow Brush

This brush is used to apply and blend the colour in the crease region. In comparison to the other eye shadow brushes it is round and has a tapered dome tip.

  • Eye Makeup Brush Set: Brush for Shading

For blending and layering of colours for eye makeup you can use an eye shader brush. It is more dense and wide.

  • Eye Makeup Brush Set : The Angled Eyeliner Brush

This eye makeup brush is used mainly to line the eyes very close to the eye lashes and also to soften the harsh lines of the liner. You can increase the thickness of lines as well by changing the angle of the brush. While buying an angled eye makeup brush, pick a narrow and small one with a flat head. The bristles should be soft and natural rather than synthetic.

  • Eye Makeup Brush Set: The Eyebrow and Eye Lash Brush

Probably the cheapest of all the eye makeup brushes this eye brow brush is used to shape the eye brows. It is also called the eye lash brush as you can comb out and separate your eye lashes thus removing clumps of mascara with it. Many use tooth brushes for this task but if you’re looking out for an eyebrow brush for eye makeup we advise that you pick one that is coarse but not very stiff. If you don’t get one with natural bristles a synthetic one is fine.
