Have you ever been confused while choosing a perfect brush for a perfect makeup?
Do you get confused by the words contour, blend, and shading? Would you like to choose a brush that will last for a longer period? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then read on to discover the secret to choose the right makeup brush!
You've probably heard it before that the right makeup products and tools contribute to how you feel about your makeup routine. In fact, owning the right makeup brushes is an essential part of your makeup routine.
These are the basis points to consider in a makeup brush:
Quality determines your choice. The fancier the brush, the better it is. Made from the finest, high-quality materials, brushes last longer and deliver the flawless makeup look you desire.
When defining the quality of your brush, look for soft bristles that don't feel frayed. The bristles should be held in place with a secure metal ferrule to prevent them from falling out.
High Quality Class:
1. Easier to mix shades and pigments
2. Creates more natural, even and flawless look
Low Quality Class:
1. Difficult-to-apply makeup and often results in a ragged appearance look
2. Bristles are coarse and may cause skin irritation
3. Brush bristle tend to shed

You may have heard that expensive means best choice, but remember that cost doesn't always mean quality. There are many choices out there. Instead of relying on the price, examine the brushes carefully to see if they have the characteristics listed above.
Depending on which type of bristle you choose, taking care of your brushes is essential! The more you care about maintenance, the longer your brush will last. This is our own recommendation:
To care for your synthetic brushes: simply wash the bristles with mild liquid soap, rinse well, lay flat and horizontally on a dry towel, then air dry and leave dry longer. It's important to note that handles should never be submerged in water. Over time this will damage the bristles and often lead to spill.
We recommend cleaning the brushes once a week if you apply makeup once a day.

A good quality brush can help your makeup do more, but you shouldn't spend thousands of rupees on a good brush -- at least if you go to www.HOKmakeup.com. Whether you prefer to buy makeup at the drugstore or spend your money at fancy makeup counters, if you don't have a quality makeup brush, the products you buy won't help your skin glow.
