To perfect your smoky eye technique like actress Emma Stone who is known for her killer smoked-out eyes, you must start with the basics – a good makeup brush and here are three from Real Techniques, Makeup Academy and Artis.
As featured in [The Best Liquid Foundations – Ever!], Real Techniques is a brand you should really be considering for great eye makeup application. When applying that sweep of deep color over the crease of your eye and along your lash line use Real Techniques 201 Pointed Crease ($15.99, ulta.com). In addition to the striking metallic detail and weighted handles for optimal control and comfort, the tapered bristles allow for the best smoky effect and feel super luxe to boot.
For just $10, head over to your local drugstore and pick up a premium-quality MUA Professional Angled Shadow Brush ($10, cvs.com) – the perfect slanted brush made with natural hair that’s ideal for applying and blending eyeshadow into the crease of the eye.
Resembling a piece of art more than a makeup tool, don’t be fooled by Artis Linear 6 Brush ($40, artisbrush.com) ability to help you create an enviable smoky eye. This brush allows the user to produce a wider line [about 5-6 mm] of product application along the upper or lower lash line. Made exclusively with a a revolutionary engineered fibre, CosmeFibre, Artis brushes are made to apply cosmetic and makeup products. Check out this how-to video see how easy this brush is to use.
My favorite of the bunch based just based on looks? It’s a tie between Real Techniques and Artis!
