Brush series #1 - Face brushes

September 16, 2016


The most frequent thing you guys ask me is what brushes to use when applying specific makeup products, so I decided to create a series of posts about brush categories and types that I personally like to use.

The brushes will be grouped in two series: face brushes and eye brushes, and in these two series they will be grouped in a few different categories in each series, depending on a use of the brush.

I think it is important to say that the brush choice is a personal preference and most of the brushes can be used in many purposes. Depending on what you want to achieve and which type of the brush you prefer, your list can be different than mine. So, I would like you to write in the comments your preference and suggestions, so the rest of you can read as many opinions and make their choice on which type of brush to use.

In this post I won't mention any brands of brushes, I will talk about general types and shapes of makeup brushes so you can get the idea of what to use. Also, I won't talk about what the brushes are made of.

Also, I have to say, the makeup brushes don't necessary be expensive to do the job, it is more important to find brushes that you actually like.

Kako me često pitate koje kistove koristiti za što, odlučila sam započeti seriju postova o kategorijama i tipovima kistova koje ja osobno koristim. 

Same kistove ću podijeliti u dva dijela: kistove za lice i kistove za oči, a u ove dva dijela bit će po nekoliko kategorija, ovisno o namjeni.

Bitno je napomenuti da je odabir kistova stvar osobne preferencije, te se većina kistova može imati i po nekoliko namjena. Ovisno o tome što želiš postići i koju vrstu preferiraš, tvoj popis može biti drugačiji od mog. Zato bih voljela da u komentare napišete svoje mišljenje, prijedloge i komentare, kako bi ostali mogi pročitati što više mišljenja i preporuka, te u konačnici odlučiti kako koristiti koju vrstu kistova.

U ovom postu neću spominjati marke kistova, nego ću općenito govoriti o vrstama i oblicima kistova tako da otprilike znaš što koristiti uz koji proizvod. Isto tako, neću govoriti o materijalima od kojih su kistovi napravljeni.

Također, kistovi ne moraju biti skupi da bi dobro obavili svoj posao, bitno je pronaći ono što tebi odgovara. 






Primer brushes / Kistovi za primer


For applying primer on myself, I usually use just my fingers, while applying primer on others, I use paddle shaped flat brushes.
________________________________________________________________________________

Što se tiče načina na koji primere nanosim na sebe, to je najčešće prstima, dok na drugima uvijek koristim kistove. Kistove koje volim koristiti su plosnati kistovi u obliku lopatice.











Foundation brushes / Kistovi za puder (podlogu)

In this category of brushes I like to use 2 types: brushes for liquid foundation and brushes for cream or mousse foundations.

For applying liquid foundation I like to use flat top and round top brushes, more or less dense, depending on the coverage I want. Remember that the denser the brush, the more coverage you will get.

For applying cream or mousse foundations I tend to use the same shaped brushes as for primer and then I go in with the previous mentioned types of flat or round shaped brushes to blend those eventual brush strokes.  
________________________________________________________________________________
 
Ovu kategoriju kistova dijelim na kistove za nanošenje tekućeg pudera i kistove na nošenje kremastih pudera i onih u pjeni.

Za nanošenje tekućeg pudera koristim ravno rezane kistove te one zaobljenog vrha, mekanije ili tvrđe, ovisno o tome kakvo pokrivanje želim. Bitno je napomenuti da, što su dlačice kista zbijenije i gušće, to će puderu dati jače pokrivanje i obrnuto.

Za nanošenje kremastih pudera i pudera u pjeni koristim iste plosnate kistove kao i za primer, te ih nakon toga dodatno blendam nekim od prethodno navedenih kistova sa zaobljenim vrhom kako se ne bi vidjeli "potezi kistom".














Concealer brushes / Kistovi za korektor


In this category I use 2 types: those for applying under eye concealer and those for spot concealing.

Although most of the time for applying and blending the under eye concealer I like to use a beauty blender sponge, sometimes I use that dense brushes that taper at the end. Also I use a small angled or flat top duo fiber brush, or any bigger shorter blending brush.

For spot concealing I like to use small flat brushes. 
________________________________________________________________________________

Od kistova za nanošenje korektora koristim one za nanošenje korektora ispod očiju i općenito posvjetljivanje dijelova lica te one za tzv. spot concealing, odnosno prekrivanje sitnih nepravilnosti.

Iako za blendanje korektora na području ispod očiju najčešće koristim beauty blender, ponekad koristim i kistove koji završavaju u špic, kao na slici. Također, koristim i mali kosi ili zavno rezani duo fiber kist, ili pak veći kist za blendanje s kratkim dlačicama.

Za spot concealing koristim male plosnate kistove.














 



Powder brushes / Kistovi za setanje


For setting the foundation with loose or pressed powder, I like to use big soft fluffy brushes with round top.

For setting the under eye concealer I find that brushes too big, so I use the smaller version of that brushes or the same type of brush I use for applying the under eye concealer. 
________________________________________________________________________________

Za setanje tekuće podloge puderom u kamenu ili prahu, kostim velike mekane kistove zaobljenog vrha s kojim na brzinu mogu prijeći preko cijelog lica.

Za setanje korektora ispod očiju, gdje su obično ovi kistovi preveliki, koristim istu vrstu kistova kao i za nanošenje ili manju verziju mekanog zaobljenog kista.

 










Blush brushes / Kistovi za rumenilo


For applying blush I like to use angled of round top brushes. For intense application, I use more dense brushes, and for less intense pigmentation I use more fluffy brushes.
________________________________________________________________________________

Od kistova za rumenilo koristim koso rezane kistove i one zaobljenog vrha koji su mekani i ne toliko zbijeni kada želim manje pigmentiran nanos. Zbijenije kistove isih oblika koristim kada želim jače pigmenitran nanos rumenila.

 






Contour and bronzer brushes / Kistovi za konturiranje i bronzer


For contouring the face I use so many types of brushes. Some of them are angled brushes, a bit more narrow, the ones with flat top and also the one that taper at the top. For this category also goes - the denser the brush, the more product it will pick up and it will be more pigmented.

For nose contouring I use smaller narrow brushes.
________________________________________________________________________________

Od kistova za konturiranje obraza i bronzanje lica koristim svašta. Neki od njih su koso rezani, pomalo spljošteni kistovi te također oni ravnog vrha. Također koristim i zaobljene kistove koji završavaju u špic. Za ovu kategoriji također vrijedi - što je kist tvrđi, nanosit će više proizvoda.

Za konturiranje nosa koristim manje uske spljoštene kistove.












  




Highlight brushes / Kistovi za highlight
  
To apply highlighter, I use fluffy, also more narrow brushes and big fluffy blending brushes for that precise application on the top of my cheekbone.
________________________________________________________________________________

Za nanošenje highlightera koristim fluffy spljoštene kistove ili veliki fluffy kist za blendanje za preciznije nanošenje na sam vrh obraza.










Lip brushes / Kistovi za usne

The lip brushes are the ones I rarely use on myself, like when I really need to blend in my lipstick that is streaky. But for applying lipstick on others (for sanitary reasons but also for precision), I use small flat paddle brushes with tapered pointy top.
________________________________________________________________________________

Kistovi za usne su ono što rijetko koristim na sebi, osim kada baš trebam blendati ruž koji se ne nanosi dobro. Za nanošenje ruža na osobama koje šminkam (iz higijenskih razloga ali i radi preciznosti) koristim male plosnate kistove koji završavaju u špic.








Other/ Ostalo
  
Besides all of mentioned types and categories, I use beauty blender sponges for almost everything: applying the foudation, concealer, for setting that concealer, for blending eveything in, especially sharp contour lines etc.

And for last blending everything I applied, I use duo fibre stippling brushes. 
________________________________________________________________________________

Osim navedenog, koristim i beuaty blender za gotovo sve: nanošenje tekuće podloge, korektora, za setanje korektora te za blendanje svih preoštrih linija od konturiranja. 

Za završno blendanje svega na licu koristim tzv. duo fiber stipple kistove (ne znam kako se zovu na hrvatskom).
