It's a little confusing when you go to the makeup counter to choose eye makeup brushes, even for me sometimes. There is an array of small to large when all you really want is one that you can dip in the shadow and brush on your eyes with no fuss. Having the right brushes to use on certain parts of the eye, however, makes all the difference between looking great and looking like a Warhol painting - to borrow one of my friends phrases - very funny. :-))
You obviously need a finer one ( 1 ) to apply eyeliner as it gives you more control and ensures your line is straight. Then a fluffier one (5 or 6) to add depth into the socket without leaving a harsh line and a wider one ( 10 or 11 ) to brush the shadow over the lid. A small brush for putting shadow under the eye is important too to give you a fine line you can blend out to a smokey look is useful ( 8 ). In fact if you really wanted to keep it simple these would be the only 4 you would need in your makeup bag, along with an eyebrow brush ( 12 ). Confusion gone. :)
Below is a list of the above brushes and their uses.....
1. Precision eyeliner perfect for lining eyes
2. Small angle detail great for brows or under eye
3. Angle Detail great for brows
4.Mini fluff for creating smokey eyeliner and perfect for brow highlighting
5.Small crease for blending shadow in the crease of the eye (my favourite)
6.Medium crease for blending shadow in the crease of the eye
7. Small shader perfect for applying shadow to lid
8. Eye shader for blending or shading or bold application on the lid and under eye
9.Angle fluff created for applying and blending shadow
10.Medium fluff perfect for packing on shadow to whole of the eye
11. Large fluff created to apply shadow to the entire eye
12. Eyebrow brush and comb for brows and lashes
