Ever wondered how others achieve makeup that looks alluring and immaculate, although not done professionally? The secret, really, lies in the blending process. The more makeup you slap on, the longer it takes to blend for everything to fuse seamlessly together. Remember, no pain no gain.

shopping_cart Sephora Malaysia RM86.00

Super minimal, sleek, chic and travel-friendly, this is the eye brush set to have. With 4 essential eye brushes, you’ll be able to achieve more than just a smokey look. They’re also made for effortless application, so whatever look you are going for, you won’t have to sweat it. 

5. Fenty Beauty Tapered Blending Brush 210

Best for eyeshadow

Price from RM99.00

shopping_cart Sephora Malaysia RM99.00

The name of this brush may be slightly misleading as it’s not exactly ‘tapered’, so to speak. However, its rounded tip is terrific to blend in any eyeshadow that could’ve been accidentally overly laid. If you’re prone to making such mistakes, a good blending brush is definitely your answer to looking seamless and (eye)-catching.   

6. Sigma Beauty F40 Large Angled Contour Brush

Best for contouring

Price from RM104.20

shopping_cart Zalora Malaysia RM104.20

Nothing beats a classic angled brush to chisel out that cheekbone and jawline of yours. A good ol’ fluffy contour brush is also great for beginners because even if you’ve accidentally gone a tad heavy-handed with your contour powder, you’ll still be able to save the rest of your makeup by buffing and blending it away! 

7. Sigma Beauty E45 Small Tapered Blending Brush

Best blending crease brush - suitable for small or hooded eyes

Price from RM66.00

shopping_cart Sephora Malaysia RM66.00

With hooded eyes, it can be a little tricky when it comes to applying eye makeup as it tends to cover all the art and hard work you’ve invested. Therefore, finding brushes that are in the right shape and size is as important as the blending process. 

A small tapered blending brush like this one by Sigma is excellent because it disperses product at the exact areas you intended it too. Too big of a brush could ruin everything and with darker colors, you may even look like you’ve been punched in the eye!
