How to Use a Smudger Eye Makeup Brush

Create Smokin' Effects (and More) With This Must-Have Tool

Meet your new best friend — the smudger brush. Its tightly packed, dome-shaped bristles allow you to easily blend out cream, pencil, or powder liners, softly diffusing harsh lines on the crease and lash lines. This makes it particularly essential when creating a dramatic, layered, sultry smoky eye.

You can even try dipping your smudger brush into a similarly hued powder shadow to set and intensify creamy pencil liner. And since it's so small and easy to control, it's perfect for reaching targeted areas, like the inside corners of the eyes. Glittery shadow, here you come, sans the excessive results. Shop a variety of smudging brushes in the widget below.
