This is the classic eyeshadow do-all brush. It's perfect for both placing and blending out shadows with its lustrously silken bristles.
THE FINE DETAILS
The E02-RL is a classically shaped eyeshadow brush that everybody needs, wants, or has in their brush collection - but the E02 does it better with its smooth, soft bristles, resiliency, and perfect size. It’s kind of like the difference between you on a regular day, and you on a day when you didn’t wake up already tired, with your hair doing that thing you love, and having remembered your AUX cord so you could bump some Lizzo and live your best life. It’s just that much more enjoyable.
What makes it that much better is the process by which all of our brushes are shaped. Typically, the bristles of a brush are cut into the desired shape. However, the part of the bristle being trimmed off is the softest part that is best for blending! Our Bristles Beauty brushes aren’t trimmed; they’re hand-shaped using a special process with wooden moulds by Japanese artisans. So the soft tip is left on, and it creates the highest performing brush you’ll ever use.
The softly rounded shape of the top of the E02 makes it perfect for use anywhere across the eyelid, and ideal for the outer-V and adding dimension where needed. It’s especially perfect at blending out the crease beautifully. You’ll be mesmerized by the velvety ease you’ll experience when blowing out shades or blending them together. The slimmer profile of the E02 is what makes it fit so dreamily into the hollows of the eyes. And the density of the brush makes it the perfect candidate for placing or packing on eyeshadow wherever you need it before blending with the E02 itself or with the larger E01.
On the eyes:
- Pick up eye shadow with the flatter face of the brush and place it on the desired spot of the eyelid using patting motions, then use the rounded top to blend out the shadow with windshield wiper or small circular motions.
- For use in the crease, load your eye shadow on the rounded top of the brush before holding the brush horizontally to the ground and tucking the rounded tip into the crease, blending back and forth with the shape of your crease until the desired depth of the shadow is achieved.
- To add definition and depth to the eyes, use the E02 to add a deeper shade of shadow onto the outer “V” of the eyes with the rounded top, and then blend out and slightly up toward the temples.
On the face:
- Use the E02 to add a soft contour to the nose, or to blend out and soften an existing nose contour (even cream!).
Most importantly, remember that makeup isn't moderated, and that you are your own beauty boss. Use the brush however you see fit: whatever feels right to you and makes you feel the most beautiful.
SIZE DOES MATTER
TOTALLY BIASED TIPS & TAKES
"This really is a brush that everyone needs in their collection. Stranded on a desert island, if I were only allowed to bring one eyeshadow brush, this would be the one. Because I wouldn’t need to use a different brush for my crease and blending. The E02 could do it all!" - Bri, CEO & Co-Owner of Bristles Beauty, and Makeup Artist
