M·A·C Must-Have Brushes │ M·A·C必買刷具

M·A·C Must-Have Brushes

M·A·C Must-Have Makeup Brushes

·

What’s a pro makeup artist without a set of great make-up brushes? Yes, you can literally paint a face with just your fingers, but having a set of wonderful brushes will make everything much easier and faster–especially when it comes to blending! Blend, Blend Blend! I believe blending is the key to a great make-up application, so having proper blending tools and techniques, your make-up work will be more impeccable.

As a professional make-up artist brand, M·A·C brushes are designed with makeup artist in mind—the brand has all the brushes that you need to do professional makeup work. At M·A·C Cosmetics, there are 44+ brushes in its current line up (some are limited edition). As there are so many brushes designed for specific use, how do you know what they are used for? M·A·C brushes are numbered in three digits: 100’s, 200’s or 300’s.

·

MAC Brush

·

Here is a category breakdown of M·A·C’s  brush series:

Of course, many brushes are interchangeable and can be used for multiple purposes. For example, one of my favorite brushes of all time is the M·A·C #219 Pencil Brush, it’s designed to blend and define the eyes with eye shadow/pencil products, but I also used it for concealer spot-covering, and with its pointed tip, it’s also ideal for applying lip colors. I have also seen other make-up artists used the #219 brush to fill-in the eye brows.

In this blog post, let’s have a look at some of my Must-Have M·A·C Brushes that I use all the time. Find the ones that work for you and from there, you can start building up a collection of brushes that will make your makeup work more efficiently, so you can apply like a pro!

·

MAC Face Brush

M·A·C FACE BRUSH

M∙A∙C #168 Large Angled Contour Brush

M∙A∙C #168 Large Angled Contour Brush

M∙A∙C #168 Large Angled Contour Brush

FOR POWDERS, SLANTED TIP, CONTOURS CHEEKS. For expert application of cheek contour. This brush is a large angled contour – the fibres form a buffed edge and are soft and firmly bundled.

  • I like the gentle feeling on this brush’s natural fibers. Because it’s rounded at the side, so it fits nicely onto the surface of your cheek to do contouring and shading. I use it to apply powder blush for a soft effect, and I have also used it for applying foundation on the face.

·

M∙A∙C #129 Powder/Blush Brush

M∙A∙C #129 Powder/Blush Brush

M∙A∙C #129 Powder/Blush Brush

FOR POWDERS, FULL ROUNDED SHAPE, SHADES CHEEKS. All-purpose for blush or face powder. This brush is particularly good for blush application. The fibers are soft and form a full, rounded shape.

  • This brush comes in a short handle version as well (#129SH Brush that comes with a Reusable Pouch), which is perfect for traveling, or as a touch-up brush that you can carry inside your purse. If you absolutely need only ONE brush for the face, this all-time-classic brush is a great starter brush, it pretty much does all the work on the face—powder, bronzer, blush, and contouring.

·

M·A·C #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush

M·A·C #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush

M·A·C #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush 

FULL CIRCULAR SHAPE, TWO FIBERS, SHORT HANDLE. A large full circular brush used for lightweight application and blending of face powder or pigments. Use to create soft layers or add textures. Made from a soft blend of goat and synthetic fibers.

  • It’s multi-functional for powder, liquid or cream blending with this brush. When you blend this brush in circular motion, it buffs the product onto the skin. Because this brush is large in size, it’s also ideal for make-up application on the body (eg. applying shimmering powder on the body). Many people like to use it as a bronzer brush as it delivers a natural-looking finish on the skin with its two-layered fibers.

·

M·A·C #190 Foundation Brush

M·A·C #190 Foundation Brush

M·A·C #190 Foundation Brush

FOR FOUNDATION, PADDLE-SHAPED, SHADES FACE. Pro-quality. A foundation brush designed to create even finish, flawless look. Works well with any M·A·C foundation. A professional-class foundation brush designed to provide a smooth, even finish, flawless look. Use to apply, distribute, and blend foundation into all areas in the face.

·

M·A·C #109 Small Contour Brush

M·A·C #109 Small Contour Brush

M·A·C #109 Small Contour Brush

FOR POWDERS, ROUNDED DOME TIP, CONTOURS FACE. Use on the face to apply, blend or contour powder products. Softly rounded dome tip delivers just enough color; smoothly blends color into the face.

  • Domed-shape and soft fiber that is great for buffing foundation (powder, liquid, gel or cream) into the skin for a polished look. When buffing foundation on your face with this brush, it will provide more coverage, but not heavy in finish. I use this brush very often.

·

MAC Eye Brush

M·A·C EYE BRUSH

M·A·C #217 Blending Brush

M·A·C #217 Blending Brush

M·A·C #217 Blending Brush

FOR POWDERS/CREAMS, OVAL SHAPE, BLENDS SHADOW. For shading or blending of color or creamy products. This brush has fine, densely packed fibers that are arranged in an oval shape.

  • Great for crease blending work, but also great for cream/liquid concealer application in the under eye area with its oval-shape tip. The natural fibers in this brush are a bit firmer than the #244 blending brush.

·

M∙A∙C #219 Pencil Brush

M∙A∙C #219 Pencil Brush

M·A·C #219 Pencil Brush

FOR POWDERS/CREAMS, PENCIL-SHAPED, DEFINES EYES. For precision shading on lid, in eye crease or along lash line. The soft, smooth fibers of this brush are gathered into a pencil-shaped tip. It is ideal for blending eyeliner into eye shadow to create a smoky looking eye.

  • #219 Pencil Brush is definitely a must-have brush. It’s so multi-tasking! I mostly use as an inner & bottom eye shadow brush, eyeliner smudging brush for smoky effect, and to use it to define the crease. It’s pointed tip is short and soft, so it give a great control when you use it for concealer spot-covering purpose. I also like to use it as a lipstick color brush, and highlight on the cupid’s bow with a brighter color.

·

M∙A∙C #224 Tapered Blending Brush

M∙A∙C #224 Tapered Blending Brush

M∙A∙C #224 Tapered Blending Brush

FOR POWDERS, DOME-SHAPED, BLENDS SHADOW. For controlled eye shadow application. This brush has soft fibers which taper to form a medium size dome shape.

  • Winner of Allure Magazine’s ‘Best of Beauty’ Award.
  • Well-known as the Windshield Wiper Brush by many make-up artists because it blends like it. It’s made of soft natural fiber, great for larger eye crease blending, highlighting, eye contouring, and/or concealer blending. This brush is one of the must-have’s for creating a smokey eye… it makes the blending edge seamlessly.

·

M∙A∙C #226 Small Tapered Blending Brush

M∙A∙C #226 Small Tapered Blending Brush

M∙A∙C #226 Small Tapered Blending Brush

Small, slightly tapered, dome-shaped brush designed for crease-work.

  • This brush is currently NOT in the M∙A∙C brush lineup. I bought mine when it came out as a limited edition brush from the M∙A∙C Me Over Collection (2011). I have to mention this brush in this post because I absolutely LOVE this brush so much—I can add a few more of this brush into my brush collection! This brush has to come back again!
  • #226 brush is slightly smaller & more pointy at the tip compare to the #224 Blending Brush, therefore it gives a more precious application in blending for smaller sized eye lids; it’s also great for droopy (or hooded) eyelids’ crease blending. I find this brush to be a great use as a smokey eye blending brush for the bottom eyes to give a diffused edge finish. I also like to use it for nose & eye contouring!

·

M·A·C #239 Eye Shading Brush

M·A·C #239 Eye Shading Brush

M·A·C #239 Eye Shading Brush

FOR POWDERS, ROUNDED EDGE, SHADES EYES. This brush has a tapered, rounded edge with smooth, firm, fine fibers. It can be used to build intense color on the eyelid.

·

M·A·C #242 Shader Brush

M·A·C #242 Shader Brush

M·A·C #242 Shader Brush

OR POWDERS/EMOLLIENTS, ROUNDED EDGE, SHADES EYES. For powder, concealer or emollient-based product application. This brush has firm fibers carefully shaped to form a rounded edge for a smooth, even finish.

  • This brush has both natural & synthetic fiber in one, so it’s ideal to use heavier formulation products such as concealer or gel. I like to use the side of this brush to pack-on eye shadow colors for maximum effect.

·

M·A·C #266 Small Angle Brush

M·A·C #266 Small Angle Brush

M·A·C #266 Small Angle Brush

FOR ALL FORMULAS, ANGLED TIP, LINES EYES. For creating sharp, precise lines. This brush has fibers which are carefully arranged to form a perfect angle.

  • This is another absolutely must-have brush because it does everything—eye brow filling & defining, eye liner (powder, gel, cream, liquid), lip liner shaping… every professional make-up artist has one of this in their brush belt. All time classic!

·

M·A·C #209 Eye Liner Brush

M·A·C #209 Eye Liner Brush

M·A·C #209 Eye Liner Brush
FOR LIQUIDS/CREAMS, FINE-TIPPED, LINES EYES. An extra-fine tipped synthetic fiber brush that delivers a precise, firm, even stroke with which to line the eyes. Use with liquid or cream products.

  • Great for very detailed work such as tight eye lining in the inner eye line. You can also use it to draw lines and shapes on the face.

·

MAC 205 Mascara Fan Brush

M·A·C #205 Mascara Fan Brush

M·A·C #205 Mascara Fan Brush
FOR MASCARA, FAN-SHAPED, COATS/SEPARATES LASHES. A fan-shaped brush specially designed for root-to-tip mascara application. A small serrated, fan-shaped brush of synthetic fibers specially designed for root-to-tip application of Prep+Prime Lash or any mascara. For post-mascara, use it to groom clumps and perfect the lashes.

·

MAC Lip Brush

M·A·C LIP BRUSH

M·A·C #316 Lip Brush

M·A·C #316 Lip Brush

M·A·C #316 Lip Brush
FOR LIQUIDS/CREAMS, TAPERED TIP, SCULPTS LIPS. For controlled lipstick or eye liner application and comes with a metal cover. This brush has small, flat, firm fibers and a tapered tip. (17cm when metal cover is capped at the other end of the lip brush)

  • There are other brushes in the#200’s eye category that can substitute for a lip brush, such as the #219 Pencil Brush or the #194 Concealer Brush (made of synthetic fiber) that I use often for lip color application.

·

MAC Brush Cleanser

M·A·C Brush Cleanser │ 專業洗刷水

 

M·A·C Brush Cleanser
CLEANSING, DISINFECTING, CONDITIONS BRUSHES. A product to clean, disinfect and condition brush fibers so that brushes last longer.

Masterclass Brush Collection Q&A with Nick Gavrelis Vice President, Global Product Development, M·A·C Cosmetics

1. What are the catalysts that inspired the Masterclass Brush Collection development? What makes the design so revolutionary? Can you expand on the technology and materials used to create the handle and brush fibers?

Several years ago, we in Artist Training and Development began to think about how to re-design a makeup brush to make self-application more effortless and consistent for both the right and left handed individual. Research took us back to the origin of brush design, when the brush handle was made of twig or bone and the brush head was comprised of feather, human or animal hair. These brushes were used (with primitive paint) to record events and stories. Eventually, the brush was directed toward the face to give early man and woman another outlet for creative expression. The Masterclass Brushes were created with these early brushes in mind.

In this collection, the brush head and handle are meant to run parallel to the face, instead of having to point the brush towards the face. The durable yet flexible metalized plastic composite handles have rubberized grips for comfort, and therefore, greater ease. All three Masterclass Brushes utilize a new type of synthetic bristle, Cosmefiber, which is a proprietary combination of materials, dyes, coatings and configurations. This yields an application like one would expect from only the finest natural luxury bristles.

2. Is it consumer or artist driven? In what ways do you predict both groups will benefit from this new offering?

While our M·A·C Masterclass Brushes may have originally been designed to make self application more effortless, our first customer, the make-up artist, will find each of these brushes highly valuable additions to their collection of professional tools. Both the consumer and make-up artist will be attracted to the futuristic design and the unusually dense and luxurious brush heads. The new types of synthetic fibers lend themselves to application differently; we expect the artists to gravitate toward this immediately. That is where both Consumer and Make-up Artist will be stunned at how effortless, fast and flawless make-up application can become.

3. What void do these brushes fill in M·A·C’s brush category? How are they different from the traditional makeup brushes currently in line?

There are three distinct voids that these brushes fill. The first is the need for a brush that makes self-application less intimidating to the first-time consumer. Secondly, there is a need for new synthetic fibers that feel natural, but that deliver the beautiful and perfectly blended results of high-end bristles. Make-up Artist Brushes have not changed dramatically in general appearance and construction for the past several hundred years, and these new brushes will help take the Make-up Artistry Tool category into the future.

4. There are three different sizes. How do you use each brush and what products would you recommend to use in conjunction with these brushes?
Masterclass Brushes are shaped to match the planes of the face, and the shape of the fiber bundles were made to adhere to the face’s various surfaces and contours.

These brushes work in gliding strokes of push or pull, not multiple dabs. Hold the handle between your thumb and fingers and place the brush at the beginning of the area of the face you are going to cover. Glide, pull or push if it feels more natural. Also notice that while you are using a Masterclass Brush, your hand is pointed away from the area you are trying to see. No more blocking the view, as with traditional brushes.

  • Place, pull glide, push glide, shimmy
  • Glide, don’t grind.
  • Sweep strokes, don’t poke

Linear 1 Brush: Has a short narrow row of fibers to help concentrate product application along the lash line. This brush applies a perfect thin line of product along the upper lash line or tucked under the lower lash line. It can also be used to fill in and define the brows, or to apply a defined line along the lip. The Linear 1 brush is very helpful for special effects makeup to create crisp lines and linear shapes.

Oval 3 Brush: Includes a corner shape that assists the user in shading and blending cream, or powder eye shadow to the eye. It is also useful for applying foundation and concealer to targeted areas of the face: under the eye, the inside corner of the eye or on the sides of nose.

Oval 6 Brush: Great for applying primer, foundation and powder products to the entire face. Try blush and bronzer for contouring the cheek bone area.

5. Were these brushes tested backstage during Fashion Week? What was the artists’ feedback?

All three Masterclass Brushes were tested backstage at the Autumn/Winter ’13 Ready To Wear Collections, starting in New York with our Directors of Make-up Artistry and Senior Artists. Their enthusiasm and feedback was extremely positive. They helped confirm that while these three brushes can be used together to complete an entire make-up look, a true make-up artist will incorporate them into his or her professional artistry tools and use them along with their other go-to brushes. The response from several top tier key make-up artists backstage was instant – they wanted their own sets.

6. How has the importance of professional tools in the consumer makeup category evolved in recent years, and how does this brush collection address this?

What is distinctly M·A·C about this product offering and how does it stand out as a “Must Have” in the crowded competitive landscape of similar products?

Our M·A·C Artists have always been passionate and keen to demonstrate and educate about brush use. For many consumers, M·A·C introduced them to their first professional make-up artistry tools. Over the past 10 years, there hasn’t been a dramatic departure from the typical brush range, although we have seen a broader introduction of synthetic fibers, interesting new combinations of fibers, and many unique features and designs. However, in launching our Masterclass Brushes, we are introducing something that breaks us apart from the other brands. Unique in look and design, this collection it is a complete departure from what one expects. These amazing brushes are not meant to replace traditional make-up brushes, but rather to provide the consumer with more choices and will incorporate beautifully into a consumer’s or professional’s existing collection of brushes.

The M·A·C Masterclass Brush Collection is available online at maccosmetics.com and will be added to the permanent collection at M·A·C stores starting November 14, 2013.

M·A·C Introduces the Makeup Brushes of the Future

M·A·C Masterclass Brush Collection LineUp

M·A·C Masterclass Brush Collection LineUp

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that the quality of your makeup brush directly correlates with the quality of your makeup application. Now M·A·C—the beauty behemoth well-known and loved for churning out professional-grade cosmetics—provides new meaning to the word “quality” by introducing a hi-tech new set of tools to their permanent line. The three unique brushes in their Masterclass collection are truly revolutionary (and we don’t use that word lightly). In fact, we’ve never seen anything like them before.

The modern design features an ergonomic handle with a rubbery grip for maximum control, and a tilted head that allows for an unobstructed view when applying makeup. All in all, the shape is sort of reminiscent of a toothbrush, except in place of coarse bristles are kitten-soft synthetic Cosmefibres that are made to act and feel like natural hairs.

The way you wield the brushes is novel, too. Instead of dabbing or swirling color on your face, you’re meant to either push, pull, or glide them across the skin. The three sizes include Linear 1 ($25) for lining lashes and lips and filling in brows, Oval 3 ($32) for applying eye shadow and concealer, and Oval 6 ($42) for dusting on foundation and blush. We chatted with M·A·C Cosmetics Senior Artist Victor Cembellin to get all the details of the cutting edge collection.

What makes these new brushes particularly great from a professional perspective?
As a makeup artist, these brushes allow me to achieve maximum effects with minimum product. The soft fibers that make up each tool form a singular surface area and emulate the texture of velvet, thereby allowing products to be massaged and skimmed onto the surface of the skin in seamless veils of color and coverage. Many brushes currently offered in the industry lack flexibility or have too coarse a texture, ultimately leading to unblended color deposits or the overuse of product. The Masterclass brushes apply and blend products and colors on a fixed level, making them virtually invisible to the naked eye.
What void do they fill in your makeup kit?
Simply put, these three brushes are now the softest tools in my brush collection. Using them has been a masterclass in pure luxury. As makeup artists, our number one goal is to create invisible illusions for our clients. We strive for the effects that flatter, enhance, and sculpt while maintaining the authenticity of a “no makeup” look. I always say, “The softer the tool, the more refined the application.” These tools have invited every consumer to refine their own makeup technique by creating blended eyes, flawless foundation, and perfect eyeliner.
How does the exclusive design help you in applying makeup?
I find the ergonomically designed handle and new angle much more comfortable than ever before. Instinctually, the hand is able to move and blend with more fluidity and precision, and it will no longer be in the way of your application. No more tapping against a mirror when trying to go in for detail! Applying liquid foundation with the Oval 6 and concealer with the Oval 3 has been a dream. My foundation usage has been cut nearly in half because product doesn’t move into the center of the brush as it skims across the surface of the skin, and this instead diminishes pores, imperfections, and uneven textures.

As the essential tool of the MAKE UP FOR EVER universe, the brush signifies Creator & Artistic Director: Dany Sanz’s roots as a painter and sculptor while exemplifying her passion for make up artistry. As both an artist and innovator, Dany creates products to meet the needs of both the professional make up artist and every day woman, which led her to reinvent the artist’s most vital tool – the brush. MAKE UP FOR EVER proudly announces a revolution in brushes with the introduction of seventy-six cutting-edge brushes, the most expansive luxury brush collection available today.

This extensive set ranges from everyday ‘must-haves’ to highly customized tools to create the most intricate artistic effects. Notorious for its high performance, quality products, MAKE UP FOR EVER employed the most advanced technology to ensure the tools met professional standards with consumer appeal. Dany Sanz perfected each and every brush throughout a five year process that involved testing a variety of synthetic fibers that mimic the silky softness of natural hair. She consulted with renowned brush manufacturer Raphaël on the island of Mauritius to create specialized brushes that require unparalleled craftsmanship. The construction of each brush involved 25 unique stages, and was hand-crafted by a total of 30 people from start to finish.

What further differentiates this brush collection from any other is the specific synthetic fiber technology that exists in several diameters and types: wavy or straight depending on the required use. When fibers are straight, application is more generous and precise, while wavy bristles are more splayed, allowing for a lighter and freer application. A unique combination of the two fiber textures gives infinite creative possibilities. The softness and performance of each set of bristles is ensured by using tweezers and not scissors, while fibers are fixed in place with a ferrule made from a gunmetal barrel. With no detail spared, the beech wood brush handles were created with a beveled end to allow for easier product retrieval and can be used to assist in faux lash application.
