    @ Prachi : thank u for asking this question….it’ll help me toooo…

    1. I think you should have one brush for applying eyeshadow and one for blending it out.

      There are different of angular brushes- the thin flat ones are for applying eye liner , a little harder ones are for eyebrows, fluffy ones for outer corners. so depending on the purpose, you can pick up brushes.

      If you are using dark shades of eye shadows you need to have different brushes but if you are doing neutral or light makeup you can do your makeup with a single brush.

  5. OOOOOO Rati…
    u r soooo sweet…
    thank u sooooooo much.. :kissblow: i’ll can buy wisely now…. :jiggy1: i mean i’ll buy two eye shadow brush, 1 blush brush and one thin flat angular brush for beginning. …u r gr8…. :waytogo:

  6. i too was just checking the revlon website..they too hav makeup brushes..didnt know :struggle: ?:) ..any1 having any idea how r those? especially the eye makeup brushes? ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. one more thing… i have read about vegas brushes here and it has mix reviews… i know it cannot compare to mac and colorbar but are they of decent quality???? ?:) ?:) ?:) :thanks: :thanks: :thanks:

    1. that means that before buying i have to check weather brushes are soft or not right Uzma….??????? besides angular eyeliner brush all the brushes are soft…right?????? ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) :thanks: :thanks:

      1. your eye brow brush is harder. angular liner brush need not be hard. it just needs to be well cut and thin. And sometimes bristles of teh brushes feel soft when you purchase them but with regular usage the bristles tend to get harder. good quality brushes go on for years and years and they stay soft and in good condition. A bad brush would shed bristles , would get rough soon and might not be well cut. But all in all you would ahve to buy some basic brushes to be able to figure out what kind of brushes you really require. ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: u solved all my problems :thanks:
