Ideally, everyone should be proud of their vitiligo. But, like everyone else, it’s natural to be wanting to experiment with makeup. Until you are not comfortable to embrace vitiligo, it’s important to be able to make a choice and cover your patches with vitiligo makeup if that’s what you really want.
Interestingly, using the right tool can really make a world of difference to your appearance. After all, anyone can differentiate between makeup done by the sponges (that come with vitiligo camouflage makeup kits) and the brushes that you buy from a trusted brand.
Going into a beauty store and picking out the right makeup brush can be quite a task. Especially with so many makeup brushes; one just tends to feel lost. Don’t worry. Not many people know what each brush is actually for. We felt the same way. And, this inspired us to make a collective list of which brush to use – for what. We have narrowed down 7 brushes you’ll find yourself using every now and then if you are covering your vitiligo with makeup. From powder brush to foundation brush, we are here to give you an insight into the topnotch makeup tools for your vitiligo makeup kit.
1. Foundation Brush
Foundation brush is basically used to apply foundation all over your face. It allows you to apply a light, natural, flawless, and streak-free coat that gives you “barely there” look. Better go for brushes with synthetic bristles.
2. Concealer Brush
Many concealers come with complementary sticks or bars, which is why it’s natural to skip buying this brush. But, that could be a mistake as there are certain areas where our finger cannot get in and blend. Go for a tiny synthetic brush with little stiff bristles and tapered ends.
3. Stippling Brush
Generally used for liquid foundations, this brush is also known duo fiber brush. The flat and heavily feathery brush evenly distributes the product that gives gorgeous airbrushed effect.
4. Contour Brush
The brush allows you to define dimensions to your facial features as the brush mimics the angle of your cheekbones enabling you to actually sculpt the hollows of your cheeks that are to be filled by bronzers and blushes. This brush can also be used at the forehead and temples.
5. Lip Brush
Lip brushes can give you more precise and clean look especially when your lips are largely affected by vitiligo. Though all of us prefer direct strokes from the sticks, who won’t like clean and defined lips.
6. Eye Shadow Brush
One of the most common and effective brushes of all times! Eye Shadow Brush is ideal for applying eyeshadow evenly and smoothly. The flat brush head is great for sweeping shadow from lashes to brows. Hold it vertically to tap on a little under your eyes for a fancy lower rim. Look for flat, fluffy and tapered bristled brush.
7. The Blending Brush
Use this brush to shade the creases of your eyes. You can also use it to blend highlighter along the tops of your cheekbones or the ridge of your upper lip. For a light touch, hold the very end of the handle. This brush is definitely a key brush to use as it helps to give an even tone to the skin and smoothens the texture.
