How To Use: MUG Dual Ended Brow Brush

To achieve beautiful makeup you need the right tools. With so many out there it can leave you feeling perplexed as to which ones do what and do you really need them? Anyone who has been in a makeup store lately knows the feeling of looking at the plethora of brushes in front of you and wondering “What in the world is that for?” Having and maintain good eyebrows are an essential part of helping to make your eyes look their best. Think of your eyebrows as the frame for your eyes. Without a beautiful frame, the picture just doesn’t look complete. The same can be said for your eyes. This brush is perfect for helping you create an ideal frame for your eyes.

What is It?

This dual ended brush is perfect for helping to achieve the perfect brow. Perfect for precisely filling in and helping shaping eyebrows. The angled side is great for filling in sparse areas of the brows or creating thicker more defined brows, while the spoolie (yes that’s what that other end is called) is wonderful for grooming the brows. You also have the advantage of having 2 brushes in one. If you bought these separately from MAC the Lash Brush (or Spoolie) would cost $13.00 USD and the angled brow brush price is $19.50 USD.  Our Makeup Geek Dual Ended Brow Brush retails for $4.49 USD.

How to Use It:

The spoolie end of the brush was actually designed for your lashes and your brows. To use with your brows, simply bend the brush slightly to give it a curve shape, similar to the angled eyeliner brush. This makes it easier to for the brush to reach your entire brow. Brush your eyebrows into place laying down any fly away hairs. The spoolie end can also be used to help separate lashes after you have applied your mascara.  You can also use the spoolie end after you have filled in your eyebrows to help soften the appearance of the brows and blend out any harsh lines or strokes.  The angled end of the brush has more than one use as well.  Stipple the brush into an eyeshadow lighter than your brows if they are dark, and a shade darker if you have light brows. Using short strokes fill in your brows until you achieve the desired look.  Remember, you can always soften the look with the spoolie end of the brush.  This angled end is also perfect for placing color on the top of your lashline and underneath the eyes for a smokey look.

Is it a Must-Have?:

I say yes. Considering the many options for using both ends of the brush and the price you really can’t miss on this one. If you are someone who does their eyebrows as a part of their everyday routine, you need this. If they aren’t then this is a perfect way to get started doing your eyebrows without breaking the bank.   I honestly love this brush, especially because it is hard to find a brow brush that is stiff enough. The reason why I love that is because it doesn’t pick up to much product, as that would make your brows on the harsher side. The stiffness also gives you a lot more control and makes putting on your makeup easier and faster. The spoolie side of the brush is also on the stiffer side which makes it easier to control the brows.

Please please can you do an eyebrow tutorial we have been waiting forever LOL
Love all what you do keep it up Karen :) x

Hi Marlena,

can you please advise on what eyeshadow/paintpot you are wearing in this video? I just love it, this look is so clean and yet sexy, you look sensational.

Love this brush!!! I like that it’s dual ended so its convenient to have them together instead of searching for two brushes! For the price… It’s a steal! Thanks for all your amazing products! Xo

I purchased this brush a couple of months ago and honestly, i don’t like it. I like the spoolie but the angle brow brush part is harsh for the skin. The bristles are not gentle enough that even if I use it on a light hand, it still hurts the skin. I guess the best brow brush I have is the Smashbox one.

Kaye, I have a very similar dual ended brow brush and I found the brush part to be harsh AND too thick. I ended up trimming off some of the outer bristles right down to the ferrule. This made the brush thinner and a lot softer. It still isn’t my favourite brow brush, but it’s definitely more usable now. I had nothing to lose by doing this as I wasn’t using the brush end anyway. :) I do like the spoolie side quite a bit.

Hi, Marlena, I know this comment has nothing to do with eyebrows, but I’m hoping you can give me some advice. I’m African American and I have particularly curly lashes. Do you have ant tips on how I can get them to look longer and straighter.

P.S. I’m loving everything that I’ve learnt from you so far.

Would really love a tutorial on your makeup. It would be great for daytime as it is natural but not boring.

What eye shadow(s) are you wearing in this video? I love the look and it seems perfect for everyday wear. BTW, this was a very helpful video. I love all your tips a tcheniques. Be safe returning from Paris!
