How To Use Your Makeup Brushes The Right Way
The secret to flawless makeup starts with using the correct brushes. Different types of makeup require their own unique brush shape, width and bristle length for proper application. Sheer Minerals offers a variety of high-quality professional brushes for all your makeup needs. Our brushes are crafted with sustainable bamboo handles and cruelty free synthetic Taklon bristles.
The most popular choice for Sheer Minerals fans! This travel-sized brush features dense, soft bristles to buff on mineral foundation or bronzer. Try the Kabuki Brush with your BB Crème to even out skin tone and fill in fine lines.
Apply Foundation starting at the center of your face and sweeping brush outward in a circular motion. Brush along jawline and neck for a seamless finish. The Foundation Brush works best with for Foundation, Veil or Blush application.
Use this brush to gently pat Cover Up or Concealing Stick over blemishes, dark circles and redness.
Create a full-coverage base with BB Crème and mineral Foundation dabbing the fat end of the Blending Sponge onto skin. Use the pointed end for applying blush and contouring; the pointed end also works well to apply Concealing Stick near inside corners of eyes. The Blending Sponge is latex-free.
Hold brush at an upward angle and glide along cheekbones, sweeping towards your temple, with blush to add a glow to skin. You can also swirl on apples (roundest part) of cheeks for a natural looking flush.
Transform any Sheer Minerals eye shadow into eyeliner by wetting brush and dipping into a tiny amount of color. Trace lash line from mid-eye to inner corner out to the outer corner.
You can create no-makeup-makeup look or a glammed up fashion moment with the Eye Shadow Brush. Tap or sweep color on eyelids. Start with the lightest eye shadow color your using and blot brush on a tissue or towel between shadows to keep colors crisp.
Dip the flat brush into Brow Pomade and use short strokes to fill in eyebrows. Use the
spoolie to comb hair into place.
Use the Lash Comb to separate eyelashes and remove excess mascara. Tame brows by sweeping Eyebrow Brush in an upward motion; use the brush before and after Brow Pomade for perfect brows every time.

- Dip brush in loose minerals and tap on the side of container to remove excess powder.
- Swirl larger brushes in a circular motion on skin to evenly distribute minerals and create an airbrushed finish.
