Now this brush is super cool. I had never used it or heard about it before this review and I absolutely love using it. The M.A.C 219 Pencil Brush is ideal for creating smokey, smouldering eyes and has lots of other great features too. It’s shaped like a pencil and the smooth, soft fibers allow for precise makeup application.
I love using it to apply smokey shadow to my lower lash line, instead of using a hard liner pencil. It blends really nicely and gives a very soft effect. When I’m done, I sometimes use it to fill out my eye brows too. Although I do have an eye brow brush, when I’m using a brown shadow then I just use what’s left on the brush for my brows – multi tasking.
Another thing I love using this brush for is adding highlighter, or speck of a lighter shade of shadow to the inner corner of my eyes. This effect “opens up” the eye and really makes them sparkle, and with this brush it’s super easy and you won’t risk losing your eye sight either.
The M.A.C 219 Pencil Brush is ideal for precision shading, even on the lids. Use it to line your upper lid with shadow and smudge it in for a smooth soft smokey eye effect.
