Spoolie Brush Uses

Updated: Jan 11

The spoolie brush is one of those beauty tools most of us have got but don't know what to do with.

Included in nearly all make-up brush sets, it is often left unused. I reckon, I've got at least eight of them!

But this brush, available in straight or angled formats, is probably more useful than you realise.

So, let's take a look at what it can do for your beauty routine.

Remove Clumps of Mascara

I hate clumped mascara! It can ruin an entire look.

Sadly, nearly all mascaras can blob - even expensive ones. The trick is knowing how to remove excess product to reveal full, beautifully separated lashes.

If you are often left frustrated by blobs of black gunge on your lashes, reach for a spoolie brush.

Use a clean brush to separate lashes and remove those clumps.

This brush is especially useful for removing clumped mascara from the lower lashes.

To ensure your spoolie is always ready to rescue your lashes, clean immediately after each use. Use warm soapy water and allow to air dry.

Tip: If you struggle to apply mascara to your lower lashes, try gently tapping the wand against them. Allow to dry and repeat. If you don't have many lower lashes, zig zagging or trawling mascara through them can cause excessive blobbing - not to mention accidental application to the skin.

Shape Brows

Styling soap is currently popular for brow shaping. In fact, shaping brows has never been easier but to really tease them into place, a spoolie brush is essential.

It gives you the precision you want and is effortless to use.

Most styling soaps come with a small brush but, if they are loose, are easily lost. So, having a spare spoolie is an absolute must.

A spoolie can be used with brow pens and pencils too. It makes sure your brows are groomed to perfection - with hairs separated and teased to the right angle.

Give it a try.

Other Spoolie Brush Uses

A spoolie is perfect for reconditioning used false eyelashes. It can also be used to remove nail polish - bet you didn't know that!

My favourite spoolie brush use is separating my lashes. It does a grand job.
