A Beginner's Guide To Makeup Brushes: Part I

If a craftswoman is only as good as her tools, Chanel makeup artist Angela Levin is superb. And since most makeup brushes don't exactly come with instruction manuals, she was kind enough to give a rundown of a few of the less garden-variety options. In Part I she demonstrates the proper application techniques for three special little brushes for the eye area:

-The fluffy, tapered contour brush is great for getting right into the crease and making blending look easy.

-A stiff-bristled small angled shadow brush deposits color and is strong enough to brush bushy eyebrow hairs into place.

-The pointy, calligraphic Ultrafine Eyeliner Brush is a cat eye enthusiast's best friend.
