Eye shadow brushes can be easier to use than sponge applicators and they are good for blending colours on the eyelid. Use a circular motion to blend the colour, making it solid right above your lash line.

Shu Uemura eye shadow brush HK$285

The brush is soft and handy in size, perfect for fitting in your make-up purse. Although it's a bit pricey, it is definitely worthwhile investing in good brushes if you are devoted to your make-up.

Clinique eye shadow brush HK$140

This brush has both soft hair and a reasonable price. It blends the colour on your lid easily and well. The brush comes with a plastic case to keep it clean in your pouch.

Missha shadow brush, HK$79.

A professional kind of brush, with a wide, flat head. The mink bristles are the perfect length for smoothly sweeping over. It is both a good and a bad thing to have such a long handle on a brush - it makes it durable but tricky to use.

Body Shop eye shadow brush HK$99

This mid-size eye shadow brush has a narrow, flat, tapered head which helps to draw the shape you're looking for. The best thing about it is that it picks up the right amount of pigment, so you won't waste your favourite eye shadow colours.
