When a true pro offers up something that sounds simple, grab it: This soft-bristled brush from makeup artist Laura Mercier easily sweeps shadow onto the lid and brow bone but has the tapered shape for details and the flexibility to blend. The result is a staple brush that’s anything but basic.
How to Use
Dab brush in shadow and tap off excess. Sweep shadow onto lid (and brow bone, if desired). To blend edges, draw brush back and forth in a windshield-wiper motion.
