Beauty Basics: MAC Eye 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 Eye Brushes.

Focus On: MAC 214 Short Shader Brush

MAC 214 Short Shader Brush ($23.00) is best described as a stubby 239. It has natural bristles, and the brush itself is fairly stiff. If you’ve ever wanted to smoke out your lower lash line for an ultra sultry smoky eye, this is the brush you’ve been missing. The rounded edge can easily smudge color without getting it everywhere. It can also be used to deposit color into the crease or to create an extremely defined/sharp crease. The stiffness of the brush helps to prevent over-blending of the crease when used for that application.
