If you seen my How To Create A Flawless Make Up Base With Brushes post you would have been expecting this follow up post, with that post being quite popular I really hope you enjoy this one.  Now that I have detailed the brushes I use to create a flawless base, today I wanted to go more in depth about the brushes I use to create flawless eye make up.  I mentioned that I feel brushes make more of a difference to the finished effect when creating a flawless base and with eye make up it is no different at all, maybe even more important.  I created this look with simplicity in mind but I still wanted it to be interesting and make my eyes stand out.  In this look I used an Eye Primer, Eye Brow Powder, Eye shadow, Mascara, Gel Eyeliner, Mascara and a set of false lashes.

I just want to point out that I got a bit carried away with my brows and they are not in my preferred style but I loved the way everything else looked so lets just ignore them, please.  Brows frame your whole face and looking back to before I started filling them in makes me cringe,  in my eyes brows are impossible to perfect, without a brush of some sort.  Now I just need two little tools to make my face look more complete, the Crown Brush Spoolie and Nanshy's Angled Detailer.  I have only been using this angled detailer for my brows for about a month but it has replaced my previous favourite, look out for a post all about brows really soon.

After dabbing on some eye shadow primer I used the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush to apply a pale eye shadow with a matte finish just to even  and brighten my eyelids slightly, creating a base for the darker shadows.  As this brush is fluffy but firm it allows you to get an even coverage whilst still being precise.   The Urban Decay Good Karma Shadow Brush was used to dab a slight champagne eye shadow, with more of a shimmer running through it, to the centre of my lid again brightening and making my eyes appear bigger, this brush is great for shadows more prone to fall out.  The Nanshy Flat Detailer is perfect for really precise application, I used it for the outer corner of this look creating a subtly sharp line.

Blending is the secret to creating flawless eye make up in my opinion, without taking the time to blend you may as well not bother.  The Nanshy Eye Crease Brush  is perfect for contouring in the crease, like I did for this look in the slightly warmer brown shade, its fluffy but still allows enough control for keeping within the crease.  Using the same brush I blend a slightly darker brown in the outer corner of the crease just for extra definition.  The Sigma Blending E25 Brush is, in my opinion, the best blending brush out there.  Often compared to Mac's 217 Brush but with a smaller price tag.  Applying a lighter eyeshadow to highlight the tear duct and brow bone can really change the whole look and using the Nanshy Tapered Crease Brush is perfect for both, I love this brush.  I have also been using this to blend shadow on the lower lash line, just not for this look.

Let me introduce you to the best eyeliner brush I have ever used in my life!  The Nanshy Precise Bent Eyeliner Brush has changed the way I feel about gel eyeliners as it just makes the application so simple, I used to get so stressed when applying liner but not anymore, Nanshy I commend you!  No matter how good the product, be it liquid or gel I always set my liner with a black powder, just to increase the lasting power.  Real Technique's Accent Brush is perfect for doing so.

As I mentioned at the beginning I used false lashes in this look, now let me explain why.  I do have naturally long lashes so length is never really a problem but the fuller my lashes can look the better.  I do love my volumising mascara's, especially YSL Effet Faux Babydoll Mascara but in my opinion the look of false lashes cannot be achieved from a mascara, do you agree?  The ones I used were the Millie Mackintosh Shoreditch Lashes, my all time favourites.  These come with a little set of tweezers for application too so no other tools are needed, winner!

Do you own any of these brushes, which is your favourite?
