16 Professional Makeup Brushes & How To Use Them
So when it comes to professional makeup brushes, we can generally divide them into two categories: the ones we use on our face, and the ones we use on our eyes.
SS001 – Syntho Series Deluxe Large Foundation
Defined by its flat base and large oval shape, use this professional makeup brush for liquid base makeup (foundation), BB cream or cream highlighter. The gentle synthetic hairs make this face brush ideal for smooth blending, without losing out on coverage.
SS004 – Syntho Series Deluxe Concealer
Being oval, flat and slightly tapered makes this the perfect concealer brush. Achieve precise spot application and a perfect finish that completely covers blemishes or pigmentation.
SS014 – Syntho Series Deluxe Flat Bronzer
Use this buffing brush to blend in powders, apply bronzer and contour. The flat top and dense bristles offer total control and a full coverage application for powders around the jawline or under the cheekbones.
SS032 – Syntho Pointed Blender
The pointed, flat shape of this professional makeup brush makes it ideal for precise blending. Use it to apply and blend out your highlighter on the high points of your face, or to set powder in hard to reach places like the corners of your nose or undereye area.
C522 – Pro Highlight Contour
Make your cheekbones pop with this highlighting and blush brush. Designed to glide against the high points of your face and disperse colour where the sun naturally hits your face, you will achieve natural looking application when using this highlighter brush. The shape also make this brush great for contouring, seamlessly blending powders in the hollows of your cheeks.
C530 – Pro Detail Powder/Contour
Smaller in size, this powder brush is great for packing powder into those hard to reach places like your under eye areas or the corners of your nose. Its tapered shape offers total control over product placement and seamless blending - making it another great contour brush.
C532 – Pro Angled Contour
This multipurpose professional makeup brush is great for foundation, cream and contour products. Soft, dense bristles mean you can use this brush to achieve medium to full coverage in the hollows of your cheeks and around the periphery of your face.
C439 – Rounded Deluxe Buffer
Designed for flawless make-up application and high definition work. This brush is uniquely designed to apply a combination of powder, cream and liquid products without absorbing them into the bristles, leaving you with a full coverage, flawless finish.
C451 – Infinity Small Round Buffer
This one does pretty much the same thing as the C439, only it is smaller in size, therefore offering some more precision in application.
SS011 – Syntho Series Deluxe Oval Shadow
As a large soft eyeshadow brush with rounded bristles, you can use this professional makeup brush to apply shadow all over your eyelids up to your brow bone with ease (and without losing pigment).
SS021 – Deluxe Crease Buffer
This uniquely shaped professional makeup brush has soft, synthetic bristles to provide sheer, controlled application. Ideal for blending in the crease or fixing up small mistakes.
C510 – Pro Oval Shader
Defined by its dense flat head, this brush is designed for direct eyeshadow placement on the eyelid, offering medium to full coverage - great for more elaborate looks. The stiff shape also makes this brush ideal for cleaning up and highlighting the under brow area, or to apply your eyebrow makeup.
C511 - Pro Blending Fluff
This brush is designed to pack shadow onto the lid as well as blend it out for a natural and seamless finish. The tapered, flat shape enables precise placement for hard to reach spots on the eyelid area with medium to full coverage.
C512 – Pro Sculpting Crease
This professional makeup brush is the perfect blending brush. Effortlessly smoke out your crease area and disperse the shadow evenly along your eyelid for a dramatic, intense finish.
C528 – Pro Crease Detail
Small and compact in size, this crease brush is designed for adding detail to eye looks. Define your smokey effect or achieve extra intensity and depth in your colour. The pointed, soft bristles also make this a great brush for blending out the lower lash line.
C529 – Pro Jumbo Blending Crease
This last one is predominantly an eye brush but also great for applying highlighter to the high points on your face like cheekbones, bridge of the nose and brow bone. For the eyes, this professional makeup brush is designed to fit directly in the crease to quickly and seamlessly blend out large areas of the eye. It's a great brush for all over eye application and one-shadow-looks.
