HOW TO USE OVAL BRUSHES
If you have never used an oval makeup brush before (a lot people haven't) then this is for you. Oval brushes will revolutionise the way you apply makeup and you can create flawless looks as easy as 1,2,3. Introducing the Foundation Buffer 111 Set.
Oval makeup brushes are just about perfect for anything, apply concealer, foundation, bronzer, and achieve a perfect complexion. The Otis Batterbee Oval Brushes look similar to a hair brush but have more nylons bristles densely packed. These bristles cover the skin evenly, and allow you to get a smooth application and coverage. Since they are very soft, they are also great for sensitive skin too.
How to apply foundation or powder
Use the largest oval brush to apply foundation or powder. You can go for liquid, mousse or powder – any type or texture will work perfectly. Simply add the product to the brush and apply with a single sweep, gently massaging the product into your skin. You can even apply moisturiser or primer with an oval brush using the same technique.
How to apply concealer
Use the concealer oval brush and apply the product under the eye and on areas where you have blemishes. Simply dot the product in places you’d like to conceal and blend using the brush. The smaller size of this brush makes it easier to reach areas such as the inner corner of your eye.
How to apply bronzer
Use the large sized brush in the set or the single Foundation Buffer 111, or the sculpt one to contour your face. Again, with a gentle sweeping motion, blend the bronzer underneath your cheek bones, along your hairline and just under your chin.
How to apply blusher
Similar to the bronzer application, use the same sculpt oval brush. Smile gently and apply blusher on to your cheek bones, blending the product in as you go along.
How to define your brows
Use the narrow brush to add definition to your eye brows. This is perfect for a natural subtle eye brow look as the oval brush will intensify the shade while still retaining a natural brow look.
Applying Eye Shadow
Use an eye shadow brush to easily apply primer and eye shadow. The compact size of this brush makes it easy to blend colours while still keeping the precision of eye shadow application.
For Makeup that Requires Extra Precision
If you are keen on extra precision, go for the smallest of the oval brushes. Perfect for lining, highlighting or even contouring the nose. Gently blend the product using the brush for a truly seamless look – that highlighted cupid’s bow never looked that good.
Smudging the Eyeliner
Apply eye liner and smudge it with the narrow brush. Afterwards, use the excess to line your lower lash line!
Making it Your Own
Everyone has their own way of applying makeup. Oval brushes can inspire you to use them in your own fabulous way!
The other reason why beauty lovers are cooing over oval brushes is because of their design. When you apply makeup with an oval brush, you will notice that the rounded design, the tilted tip and the firm grip all make it easier to for you to achieve that professional finish on yourself.
