WHEN DOING EYE SHADOW DO YOU REALLY NEED TO USE ALL THE DIFFERENT BRUSHES OR CAN YOU DO IT WITHOUT THEM??
Yes the brushes make a huge differents😉
Well, I'm sure you could do eyeshadow looks without all the fancy brushes, but you'd probably make it look a lot better (especially blending) with brushes. You don't have to get expensive ones. ELF (studio line), Sonia Kashuk, and Real Techiques are very decent and affordable brushes.
Think of it this way: applying makeup is an art sooo with art you need brushes!! lol try crown brushes they are inexpensive and excellent quality :)
They also come in sets mine is pink xoxo
you don't NEED a bunch of brushes but they all serve a different purpose and it definitely helps if you have the right tools. It's an investment and they last forever so if you can just get cheap ones OR try and get a good ones little by little. Def. worth the money if it's something you love and will use everyday ;)
i find some brushes and even eye shadow applicators make a huge difference plus blending is key!!!

as long as you are able to make fine lines with your eyeshadow and are also able to blend it you should be good. :)
Here are four brushes I would recommend for someone starting out:
1. A basic flat, 'lay down' shadow brush. This brush you would use to pat shadow onto the lid to build color. -- Any brand will do. E.L.F., Real Techniques, and Target's Up & Up have decent brushes that get the job done.
2. A soft, semi-dense crease brush. This brush will help soften the edges of your eye makeup and is a must have for a beautiful smokey effect. -- one of my favorites is from Target's Up & Up brand, simply called "Crease" -- it retails for $1.29
3. An angled brush. This can be used for filling in your eyebrows as well as applying eyeliner (cream or shadow). -- I personally use MAC #266 but I believe Ecotools has a really good angled brush that is fairly cheap but good quality.
4. A small, soft 'detail' brush. This would be similar to the flat lay-down brush, but it is much smaller. It is ideal for adding color to the inner corner of the eye, smudging liner on your lashline, apply shadow on your lower lashline (creating a 'dropshadow'), etc. It's basically for all the small details of your eye makeup. :-) -- I use one I got in a Crown Brush set about two years ago. This one may take more searching but it is worth it. I believe Sigma has recently released new smaller 'detail' brushes that you could check out.
Hmmm...I never really thought about this before. If I have the time, this is what I do and use: 1.) concealer brush for base 2.) fluffy brush for crease 3.) shader brush for lid 4.) pencil brush for lower lash line + inner corner 5.) angled liner brush for brows and fluidline I don't use one for each color; I quickly wipe them with a washcloth and brush cleaner after use.
I think it depends on what look you are going for. I feel like it depends on the look your going for and how good you are at applying your makeup.
a finger is your most ready to use utensil you have. you can blend excellent with your finger and apply eyeshadow. yes it helps to have brushes to you do not have to have them. (:
I find that specific brushes are important only if you use them and it's subjective to the person. If you do specific looks regularly, you'll need those brushes you're most comfortable with to achieve the looks. Like for me personally, I always need a very fluffy brush and an angled liner brush. Some people don't use either for looks.
I need a large fluffy brush that is somewhat tapered...my other fave is a small smudger brush, or a flat stiff paddle...that way I can also use the point of the smudger under the eye as well as the eyelid...but I agree with Jasmine, its subjective to a persons personal taste, and eye/face features.
i use two brushes for my eyelides - flat shader by elf, and a target brand blending brush. recently though i've found i really prefer doing the whole eye with the blending brush because it just spreads color so evenly.
some beauties would never do that though! it really does depend on what you feel applies best on your eyes. no one can tell you that one brush will do it better than another.

I think you have to be really skilled at makeup to be good at doing a good eye look with your fingers. I think brushes open up to so many options as opposed to not, especially if you are newer at doing makeup. But, I agree with most of these lovely ladies, and I think that it is all about personal preference. You can definitely get some cheap brushes that are of quality.
Do one eye with your finger and do the other using a brush or brushes. Sometimes a finger is an essential tool but I use my brushes more. Coastal scents have affordable, good quality brushes.
To do different looks, definitely! It will help you create a nice, blended, seamless look. But you do not need to spend tons of money on them! You can get great ones from drug stores and online/from Ebay.
thanks to all the great advice am on the look for those brushes that catch my eye
