Are you new to makeup? Are you trying to understand what brushes are absolutely necessary? Let's take it back to the basics. Figuring out which makeup brushes you need or don't need can be overwhelming. Here is our guide for beauty beginners to Otis Batterbee's brushes, from foundation brushes to eye makeup brushes we have it covered.

Concealer Makeup Brushes by Otis Batterbee.

Concealer Brush Duo

Welcome to the exciting world of makeup. This journey can be both exciting and overwhelming, especially when faced with an array of  brushes with different uses. Let's start with the Concealer Brush Duo. Concealer is a basic everyday wear type of makeup product for impurities of the skin. The concealer makeup brush duo comes with two brushes: one for working product around the face and eye areas and one for the smaller areas in need of precise blending.

Make sure to follow these steps to get the most out of these concealer brushes.

  1. Choose the right concealer, usually a shade lighter than your foundation for brightening effect and make sure it has the right undertone for your skin. 
  2. If using foundation, apply this before concealer. This provides a base and may reduce the amount of concealer needed. Otherwise, apply to moisturized skin.
  3. Apply concealer with your brush in an upside-down triangle shape with the base along the lower lash line and the point extending towards your cheeks to cover dark circles. Then address blemishes, redness, or discoloured areas and apply the product. 
  4. Use a gentle patting or dabbing motion to blend the concealer into the skin with the liquid makeup brush. Avoid rubbing, as this can move the product and disturb the coverage.

These makeup brushes are essential tools for achieving flawless coverage. Embrace the versatility of the best concealer brushes and feel your most confident self.

  4. Blend outward using upward strokes towards hairline and jawline to seamlessly blend and prevent harsh lines.
