Beauty Basics: MAC Face Brushes

Beauty Basics is a series covering basic products and tools that help to make applying your makeup easier. To view the entire series to date, be sure to visit the beauty basics, or you can view posts within the series about MAC Face Brushes.

Focus On: MAC 184 Duo Fibre Fan Brush

MAC 184 Duo Fibre Fan Brush ($22.50) is a blend of both synthetic and goat hair fibres to create a flat, fan-shaped brush. It’s incredibly soft, lightly fluffy, and it doesn’t shed at all for me. It is a PRO only brush, but maybe they’ll bring it to freestanding stores someday. I like fan brushes like this one to apply a light dusting of loose powder or highlights (like an all-over highlight) to face and forehead, especially. I also find this useful in removing any product fall out under eyes. (One great tip is sprinkling loose powder underneath your eye, and then sweep it all away.) This brush isn’t in my top ten, but if your budget allows, it is definitely a handy and worthy-of-your-purchase kind of brush.
