Focus On: MAC 213 Fluff Brush

MAC 213 Fluff Brush ($22.50) is small, fluffy dome-shaped brush. It’s kind of like a smaller version of the 239 (one of my must-haves!). First, I definitely recommend this as a great multi-purpose kind of brush. It can be used to apply eyeshadow, blend shades together, deposit color into the crease, or highlight the brow. If you’ve ever found the 239 to be too large, you’d probably adore the size of the 213! Soft when used against the skin, so it doesn’t feel scratchy or rough when swished across the lid. The denseness of the bristles allows for good application of color shadows without the brush eating up product. I do like this for highlighting the brow bone, because it gives a soft-focused kind of application with more natural colors like highlighters. I also like it for highlighting the cupid’s bow (above your lips)!
