To create a seamless eye makeup look you need to have the right tools on hand. If you don't use the correct eye makeup brushes, that smokey eye you painstakingly followed step-by-step to create can still end up looking like a black eye rather than the sultry finish you were hoping for. So we're giving you our top 5 recommendations for eye makeup brushes you need for a flawless application.eye makeup eye shadow brushes

1. Eye Blender Brush

Ever heard us or another fellow beauty blogger talk about 'transition shades'? Well, this is the brush for just that. With the Eye Blender Brush, you blend shadow into the crease for a diffused, soft look. A transition shade in the crease is crucial as it can help your eye makeup look seamless and the colours to effortlessly blend together.

2. Crease Brush

A Crease Brush is a smaller and denser brush, designed to give you a more controlled and targeted application. It can help to add depth to the crease and can be used to apply shades to the outer corner of the eyes for a more defined look.

3. Mini Crease Brush

We know the Mini Crease Brush might seem really similar to the Crease Brush but it actually has a very different purpose. This is the detail brush you need in your makeup collection as it is an ideal brush for small areas. It allows you to add drama to your look without making your eye makeup overpoweringly dark and risk looking racoon-like. This is also a great brush to add colour to the lower lashline.

4. Eye Base Brush

For the eyeshadow shade that you want to steal the show, the Eye Base Brush is the tool you need. It's a dense and wide brush designed to pack on eyeshadow to the lid and gives you the best pigment pay off upon application. Expert Tip: Spritz it with some mist spray before dipping into your shadow to really bring out the pigment in your eyeshadow.

5. Smudge Brush

Similar, to the Mini Crease Brush, you can use your Smudge Brush to apply shadow to the lower lashline. However, the use of this short, compact brush doesn't stop there. You can use the Smudge Brush to create winged liner with an eyeshadow. Plus, it can be used to blend and smudge out cream or pencil eyeliner on the lashline for a more bold, smokey look.
