Paying attention to bristles:
Makeup brushes are all about bristles that help in the application of makeup products. It becomes important to pay attention to bristles of the brushes regularly. The shape of the bristles defines its application. Sheer coverage can be accomplished by lesser dense bristles while full coverage cannot be. Equally, the angle and length of bristles determines the productivity of the brush. Count all these things before buying makeup brushes.
Use light strokes:
The makeup brushes are made in a very delicate way. If the brushes are not handled in the right way then it may result in damage to brushes. So you should keep your hand light while using the brushes. Too much pressure may cause bristles to breakage. Also, do not bend the bristles on your skin by applying a lot of pressure. As this will not help in the better application of makeup and it won’t look smooth either.
Owning right brushes:

Use the right kind of brush :
There are two kinds of bristles that brushes are made of. One is natural and other is synthetic. You should be using the right kind of bristles with the makeup products to not waste product and use it completely. Synthetic brushes are best with liquid makeup products as synthetic brushes don’t soak up much of the product. Similarly, natural fiber brushes tend to soak liquid products so they are best with powder products only.
