What brush do you use for concealer under the eyes? I'm using the MAC 194 and i'm finding that it's splaying and the concealer isn't going where i want it to. Any other recs?

Also, another thick question, what brush do i use with my Bronze Shimmerbrick?!!

Thanx!

How do you use it? I do my foundation in sections. So I dot foundation on then spead it out over the skin. Somtimes I get lines when I'm doing the foundation, so flip to the other side of the brush which tends to have less foundation on those bristles, so it blends the foundation even more.
hope that made sense. lol

I haven't got the NARS bronzer brush, but I keep hearing good things about it so I'm sure it'lll be fine. I think you need a biggish brush to swoosh around and make aure you get all the colours.

Thanx! I've got this brush and i'll try it tomorrow when i'm putting my concealer on.

for concealer under my eyes, i always use my fingers. the warmth from my fingers makes the concealer creamier, which makes it easier to blend. i feel the brush is too big no matter what and doesn't get everything. for everywhere else, i use a concealer brush (sonia kashuk's).

It's cheap and blends the product really well. The bristles don't spread out and I can use it under the eyes and on pimples. I used to use my fingers, but found it was too hard to get the product right where I want it. I really like this brush
lol. HTH!

Thanx Carina. But i've never seen L'oreal brushes here!

Check out the Kevyn Aucoin Concealer Brush. There is a reason his stuff wins best in allure, trust me.

Like Jennifer, I also use my fingers to apply and blend concealer. There's nothing better IMHO. I've used brushes but they don't work as well. However, def. stay away from Sephora's concealer brush! It sucks- makes brush lines all over.
