By Laurie Gail


Make Up For Ever recently launched their Artisan Brush Collection.  76 brushes in all!  The extensive set includes everyday ‘must-haves’ to highly customized tools to create the most intricate artistic effects.  Talia Cich, Make Up For Ever Artistic Tools & Curriculum Developer and Lijha Stewart, Director of Education and Artistry take us on a tour of a select few.

For eyes:

Fine Corrector Brush/#170: This is ideal for precise application of spot concealing or highlighting.  You will also love this brush for defined work on the eyes.

Precision Smudger Brush, Small/#202: Great for smudging eyeliner on top and bottom.  Delivers a very precise application.

Round Shader Brush, Small/#210: Its density is great for a specific area like the lash line or eye lid.  A must for smoky eyes!

Extra Fine Eyeliner Brush/#250: Firm brush for applying clean eyeliner with liquids or creams.

Shader Brush, Medium/#226: This is a do anything Brush. It’s shape is flat and firm which makes it multifunctional, so you can use it all over the eyes to apply eye shadow. I also love it for concealer application.

For face:

Precision Foundation Brush, Medium/#112:  Large size brush for generous application.  Great for applying foundation and achieving an airbrushed finish by buffing into the skin.

Precision Powder Brush/#128: Tapered shape is great for accurate application.  Love this brush to set makeup using either pressed or loose powders by pressing it into the skin.

Precision Highlighter Brush/#144:  Multi-purpose brush that works great for highlighting, concealing, and sculpting.  The size is perfect for spot concealing under eyes, and fits perfectly on the upper cheek plane.

Highlighter Brush, Medium/#152: Larger sized brush that is great for highlighting and applying blush.  The round shape makes it ideal for versatility with powders and creams.  Also, this is a great foundation brush!

Double-Ended Sculpting Brush/#158: This brush is wonderful because you get two for the price of one. The slanted side is great for sculpting and highlighting. The domed side is perfect for powder and blush application.

For lips:

Lip Brush/#300: This lip brush has a blunt square head to line the contour of the lip. The flat side is great for filling in the lip with any type of product. Its flexibility allows the brush to easily blend lip pencils, giving precise definition.

Lip Brush with Cap/#304: Its rounded shape is great for quick and clean lip application.  Metal cap makes it perfect for travel and hygiene.
