Essential Brushes for EYE MAKEUP

Eye makeup is one of the key points in doing makeup and so important are the tools required to do so. Though I believe "fingers" are the best brushes, the areas where fingers do not reach is where you want to use a real brush.  That does not mean you have to own all the possible brushes that are launched in the market. Just a few essentials and your work is done.

Here are some of the essential brushes you must own. I do have lots and lots of eye brushes, but these are the ones I commonly use for tutorials and makeup jobs. I will be putting the entire line of my brushes though but these are some of the basic ones one must have (bought over time and not at once).


  1. Concealer Brush Flat 
  2. Concealer Brush Tapered 
  3. Large Shader Brush
  4. Medium Flat Brush
  5. Small Flat Brush
  6. Large Crease Brush
  7. Medium Crease Brush
  8. Small Crease Brush
  9. Small Dome Brush
  10. Medium Dome Brush

You can also buy yourself Sigma brush set as they have all the essential brushes you would need as a starter.

Here are some more pics of my brushes. I essentially dont own many MAC brushes as I do have other options and I always go by the quality and not the brand name. Have a look!!

Hope you like my brushes.Do let me know........
