If there’s one brand that springs to mind when we’re thinking of the best makeup brushes, it’s ZOEVA. With over 70 brushes on BEAUTY BAY and numerous must-have sets, it’s the brand that you’re sure to find in every single beauty obsessive’s makeup bag. With everything from eyeshadow blending brushes and soft powder brushes, to stippling brushes and highlighter diffusers, ZOEVA have thought of it all. Interested? We’ve broken it down for you and are here to tell you which brushes you need to add to your kit right now.
Eyeshadow: 234 Luxe Smoky Shader Brush
When it comes to ZOEVA eyeshadow brushes, the possibilities are endless. Blending brushes, flat brushes, point brushes, and liner brushes – you name it, they’ve got it covered. But if we had to narrow it down, the 234 Luxe Smoky Shader is the multi-tasking must-have that you need. The perfect balance between flat yet still fluffy, this brush works perfectly for packing shadow onto the lid, smudging liners and shadows along the lash line, and even for cutting the crease. Looking for something that’s better for blending? We’d go for the 228 Luxe Crease Brush. Pair with the Cocoa Blend Palette for flawless looks time after time.
Liquid Highlighter: 122 Petit Stippling Brush
Nothing compares to the glow that the Liquid Light Drops give and there’s one brush that blends them flawlessly for a second-skin finish. The 122 Petit Stippling Brush is ideal for buffing and blending liquid highlighter onto the skin for a natural, radiant finish. The petite size makes it perfect for targeted application on the high points of the face. If there’s another thing we’ve learnt from ZOEVA, it’s that each brush has been created with multiple uses in mind, so try this one out for getting the highest coverage of concealer on specific areas of the complexion.
Cheeks: 128 Cream Cheek Brush
When it comes to cheeks, an angled brush like the 128 Cream Cheek Brush is where it’s at. The perfect balance of fluffy yet dense, angled yet soft, this brush makes applying your favourite cheek products easy. Pair with the Basic Moment Blush Palette – this brush will work equally as well for the blush, highlight, and contour powders.
Foundation: 104 Buffer Brush
If you haven’t tried the all-new Authentik Skin Foundation yet, then you need to. Whilst you’re at it, let us introduce you to the 104 Buffer Brush – in our opinion, the one and only foundation brush that you need. A classic flat-topped buffer, this brush applies foundation seamlessly onto the skin for an airbrushed finish. Use circular motions to blend and tap flat onto the skin to add more coverage. If lighter coverage is more your thing, try out the 102 Silk Finish Brush for a more natural finish.
Concealer: 146 Concealer Perfector Brush
Another recent must-have in our makeup bags is the Authentik Skin Perfector. This lightweight, high coverage concealer hides imperfections in just one swipe. Looking for the brush to match? We love the 146 Concealer Perfector Brush. The uniquely shaped head is ideal for applying concealer to the under eyes. If a classic concealer brush is more your thing, try out the 142 Concealer Buffer as an alternative – the domed buffer head makes seamless blending easy.
Bronzer: 127 Sheer Cheek Brush
A favourite for bronzers is the 127 Sheer Cheek Brush. This fluffy, angled brush allows you to pick up the perfect amount of product and distribute it evenly around the complexion. The angled shape allows the brush to fit the contours of the face, resulting in a flawless finish that looks like your skin, but better.
Powder: 108 Finish Brush
Last but not least, there’s powder. Our new fave is the Authentik Skin Finishing Powder, the perfect lightweight, airbrush-finish face powder. Everyone has their own way of applying powder and that’s why ZOEVA has created multiple brushes to help you get the finish that you’re looking for. First up is the 108 Finish Brush, a large, fluffy brush that covers areas of the face quickly and seamlessly. If you prefer a more targeted approach to powder application, then try the 134 Powder Fusion Brush, a super fluffy, small, soft brush that helps you to apply powder to exactly where you want it.
