A pencil brush is a small, tightly packed, domed eyeshadow brush for applying eyeshadow primarily to the eye crease. I love pencil brushes as they are really good for contouring & precision work especially since I am heavy lidded & don’t have alot of space between my lid & brow. I have two that I tend to use the most which is the Clinique Eye Contour Brush & Sephora Professionnel Rounded Smudge Brush #12.
Clinique Eye Contour Brush RRP $31
This brush was my first foray into the world of the pencil brush & I love it for when I am using a more natural shade in the crease as it’s not as small as some of the other pencil brushes.
Sephora Professionnel Rounded Smudge Brush #12 RRP $15 US
I love this brush for when I am doing a smokey eye or using a bright colour in the crease as it has a more pointed tip for a more precision effect. It’s also a bit more tightly packed than the Clinique brush, if I could only have one of the two, then I’d pick the Sephora one.
