I think its safe to say that im a bit of a brush junkie, i can’t help myself i just need to buy tons of brushes if it weren’t for the fact i do makeup professionally i think i would have a little bit of a problem.
Lately i have been trying out a brand that i knew of but never bought into before but now that ive tried them i think i need to buy more haha!
Pronounced [del-ee-uhm]. The “b” in “bdellium” is silent. They launched in 2009 and are designed by a group of talented makeup brush experts in Cerritos, California. Their products are handmade and are custom tailored so they ensure the quality and integrity of each piece.
As you can see above ive picked a variety of eye brushes that all have different uses, 775 is a Studio Shader Brush. 936 is their Studio Concealer Brush, 776 is Studio Blending, 714 is Studio Flat Definer Brush, 763 is Studio Angled Brow Brush, 710 is Studio Eyeliner Brush.
The 775 brush is perfect for smudging and blending the undereye area, its really precise so you dont get the eyeshadow everywhere. Its also really good for putting gel eyeliner on the waterliner as the brush isn’t as stiff as some brushes.
I also really like using it on people with smaller eyes because if you use a bigger brush things just get messy and you end up looking like a panda which no one likes.
Yes i know the 936 is actually a concealer brush but i tend not to follow what the brush says its actually for and just for for what i think it would be good at and its perfect at applying cream eyeshadows because its tapered so you get a nice even finish when applying.
The 776 reminds me so much of the MAC 217 as it looks exactly the same. I actually much prefer working with this now as it blends eyeshadow seamlessly. The 776 is a brush you will want to use just for blending rather than applying colour as something like the 777 Shadow Brush which is a lot firmer and denser.
The 714 brush can be a great brush for getting right in at the lashes to apply a dark colour to make them look thicker and fuller. I also really like using this brush for under the eyes it makes a great brush for applying a dark colour really close to the lashes and the taking the smudger brush and a lighter dark colour and smoking the 2 out.
As you can see the 763 brush is a really sharp angled brush which is perfect for doing brows, you can create fine hair strokes with this brush. I have also used it for doing eyeliner as well but i am much more accustomed to used a fine liner brush for these things.
The 710 has become my go to eyeliner brush simply because the shape is amazing its wider at the bottom and really sharp at the top which makes for a great line. When doing flicks it helps to create a sharp point the first time.
If you’re looking for a new eyeliner brush then this is the one for you
Each of the Top 5 are under £10 which for me is a great thing because i love high quality brushes at an affordable price. I dont see the point in paying £20-£30+ on a brush no matter how amazing it is
