Hi, I'm Erin Hendley, Professional Makeup Artist, and today I'm going to show you how what brushes work best with applying MAC eye shadow. So, we have our MAC eye shadow palette to choose from and it really doesn't matter what kind of brushes you use, brand wise or type, but it, it never hurts to keep it within the brand family and using MAC brushes as well. So, I'm using the 217 fluffy brush and the 228 which is a small stiffer brush. With the first one, the 217, I'm just going to dip it into our MAC eye shadows; this is a fluffier brush and it works really well for just going all over the eye area. It's a perfect size brush to be big enough to really just get over the eye without taking too much detail and the bristles are shaped nicely to really just pack it on and create creases if necessary for a smoky eye. So, it can cover a lot of ground with a little effort. The second one, this 228, it's a little stiffer; it's good if you want to go in with the darker color, I'm going to go in with the brown, you can choose a black or a plum if you like and really just get along the lash line. These are probably two of the most popular brushes that MAC makes, especially that are favorites for their eye shadows. And so, we're just going along the eye here and when we apply things in this area, it's just to make the eye pop because it's right next to the eye lash line. This brush is strictly just to pack on product and not to blend. I'm Erin Hendley and I just showed you the brushes that are necessary to apply MAC makeup.
