Why you need it: "This is the ultimate blending brush for eyes," says Zizzo, as it can really get into the crease of your eye and define your lid with precision.
How to use it: "Dip the tip of the brush into [your] eyeshadow using a circular motion and then tap off the excess [product]" she says. Then, "just using the tip of the brush, start on the outer edge of the eye crease and blend backwards and forwards through the crease using a windshield wiper action," advises Zizzo.
