1 # Natural or synthetic hair

First of all, it is important to note that there are two types of hair, which will condition the application of makeup. In natural or synthetic hair, one chooses his brush according to the area of the face. It is concerned but also according to the textures used.

Natural hair:

Very soft, they make it possible to make up the complexion or the eyes in a diffuse way, all in lightness. The natural bristle brush is preferred for the application of powdered materials such as blush, bronzing powder or loose powder. These are the makeup brushes that allow the most natural result but be careful, they are not cruelty-free! Made from goat, pony or squirrel hair, they are also more expensive and require special maintenance.

Synthetic hairs:

Denser than natural hairs, synthetic hairs are generally made from nylon fibers. More precise and resistant, they are ideal for applying creamy materials and greasy textures. Such as concealer, liquid foundation, corrector or lipstick. These brushes are also easier to clean since they do not retain moisture and dry at high speed!

For a natural result, the foundation applies in the light veil. Before correcting the redness and reliefs with a corrector.

The foundation brush is chosen according to the material you will apply to your face and the coverage you desire. For the application of the fluid foundation, the flat brush allows stretching the material while keeping a strong coverage. It is ideal for working on large flat areas of the face, such as the forehead. For a natural result, choose the duo-fiber brush.

For sunbathing or sunbathing, it all depends on the result you want. For a contouring technique, we prefer a small brush, precise and beveled. To mark the areas of hollow and the contour of the face, and bring relief. For a “sunkissed” holiday return, a duo-fiber brush makes it possible to sweep the bronzing powder gently. Create a halo of colors while subtlety.

The beveled brush is also used to apply the blush or the blusher. It allows following the line of the cheekbone with precision. You can also choose it round to shade the crown of the cheek.

For highlighter lovers or illuminator, the fan brush is your best ally. It diffuses the iridescent lightness and perfectly follows the top of the cheekbone.

If it is liquid or gel, a specific fine brush will help you draw a precise line and a fine comma. If you prefer a moistened powder coat, the thin, short, dense brush will be your best ally for a natural liner.


Makeup eyebrows are not only the big trend of the moment but are also the final touch for a high-quality eye makeup. The eyebrow should be depilated respecting its natural line and the shape of your eye, then subtly made up according to its color, and not that of your hair.


If you prefer to fill your eyebrows with a powder rather than a pencil, remove material with a short, dense and beveled synthetic brush.


For a makeup of the lips at the top, it is not enough to draw his lipstick and put it in the grape. It starts with a sugar and honey scrub that eliminates the small skins and allows to obtain a better result than on damaged lips.

In synthetic or natural hair, the lip brush must be thin to allow accurate delineation of the contours.

The advice:

to add dimension to the finest mouths, finish with a small tip of moisturizing gloss in the center of the lips.

3 # How to wash brushes?

To keep your skin beautiful and healthy, it is essential to clean your brushes very regularly. To avoid their proliferation and the appearance of pimples and other imperfections. It is therefore essential to carry out a washing of your tools at least once a week!


After each use, use a spray cleaner that does not require brushing under water. Simply spray the product on a tissue and rub the brush gently to remove excess makeup. This technique helps keep your brushes clean on a daily basis but does not replace a deep cleaning.

Once a week, brush your brushes with lukewarm water and foam a soft soap or baby shampoo in the palm of your hand. Then rub under the water jet, until the water is clear.

Then put your tools flat on a cloth the time they dry or have brush guards that allow you to keep the shape of your brushes intact after each cleaning
