We get a lot of emails asking how to use brushes correctly so I hope this helps you out a little! A brow brush is designed to be stiff and angled for a reason. And we use the slanted edge to shade and the tip of the edge to outline. Put those components together and a brow brush is quite frankly a thing of perfection!

But I’m still a big fan of a big fluffy powder brush, I’m just not a fan of the way it’s misused by millions of women!
