The BRUSH is not the probem.Kellyc said:Hi Minkus,
I hate smile lines with a passion! but everyone works differently and i find it easier to work with a small, pointed brush so i can move the smile line into place to try and attempt a smile! the best buy i got was an brush that was already pre tailored at an angle which was just an artist brush which i used to try and get the smile line into place as best as one can lol! Unfortunately this is still something i cant wait to master but will keep practicing, if your currently using a big brush and are having difficulties then try a smaller one and see what result you get from it x x
First of all Geeg, with all respect if you read my post correctly you will see that i am trying to master the smile line, i hate smile lines and thats my opinion and unfortunately YOU will not change that, yes maybe when i have mastered it i will love them but that is a long time coming of which i look forward! You yourself have once kindly helped me out via email and knew what brush i was using and you gave me a technique to try and i still have problems. I am learning and learn new things everyday, i am not blaming my tools i am simply saying that i personally prefer to use a small brush, i am sorry if this has annoyed you but i am NOT sorry for giving my opinion.geeg said:The BRUSH is not the probem.
Anyone who knows how can make a decent smile line with any size brush if they have to. A larger brush is easier as JO JO says.
Technique is everything and it must be learned.
If you hate smile lines, it is because you do not yet know the techniaque to make them well. No one who knows how to do great smile hates them!!
Don't blame your tools. The lady above has changed her tools and still is struggling. Learn how to do it with the correct technique and easily.
Go to shows, watch the artists at work and don't concentrate on the smile they are making, but concentrate on HOW they are making it.
Look at the brush, look at the finger check the angles and which part of the brush is being used. Stay for hours if you have to but learn.
