Best Makeup Brushes for Brows & Detail Work

Best Makeup Brushes for Brows & Detail Work

This is the last post in my series on my favorite eye brushes, and it covers the more miscellaneous brushes for brows, detail work, and the like. These are the brushes I typically rotate through each and every week like clockwork (though there are more I use in a week, but these are the ones I’ll use first!).

I would love to hear about the brushes you can’t live without for brows and detail work — share your picks in the comments! 🙂

Best Makeup Brushes for Powder Eyeshadows

Best Makeup Brushes for Applying Eyeshadows

The right eyeshadow brush can go a long way for getting the coverage and finish desired in less time, and the key is identifying your own preferences, eye shape and size, and considering how varied (or not) the colors you reach for.  I can easily go through 100 brushes in a week, as I tend to switch to new, clean brushes as I change colors or finishes (as I’m testing products), but I don’t expect that to be quite as necessary for most readers.  I’ve found a lot of brushes I enjoy, so I’ve included the ones I reach for most often, even though there are a slew of additional brushes I keep within reach.

I would love to hear about the brushes you can’t live without for applying powder eyeshadow — share your picks in the comments! 🙂 Stay tuned for my brush picks for cream eyeshadow, brows, and detail work, and then later, my top brushes for cheeks/face!

Basic Moment

Zoeva Basic Moment Eyeshadow Palette ($26.50 for 0.50 oz.) includes 10 eyeshadows in a neutral color scheme that leaned light to mid-tone in depth and had more neutral-to-warm undertones. The texture of the eyeshadows ran dusty to powdery, which seemed to make them shorter wearing (averaging seven to seven and a half hours) and more prone to sheering out on the lid. If you normally use primer, it would certainly go a long way to minimizing the impact of the texture and give you better coverage and longer wear.

Basic Moment

Zoeva Basic Moment Cheek Palette ($16.80 for 0.39 oz.) includes three cheek products–a contour powder, blush, and highlighter–in a slim, cardboard palette. The powders are supposed to be “incredibly pigmented.” The highlighter was the “miss” in the palette, as it was drier in texture and had sheerer coverage, while the blush and contour powders were pigmented and blendable.
