I use default soft round brush for pretty much everything I DNB. They should really deal with color on that image, it's a nice tonal work, though.

If you're doing smaller stuff you should try adjusting brush hardness to somewhere between 20-40%. It often makes things more controllable.

Good tip for things like lines/wrinkles/strands/lashes. But 99% of the brushing is round soft brush.

I don't really care for extremely soft brushes on smaller things. Obviously if it's large and I need to control whether it bleeds over, a mask is necessary. I find I'm often in the 20-40% range. That's just me though.

I don't believe that shiney/silky looks was achieved so much with D&B as it was with curves. Sample brightness points on the image to get the right point on the curve and adjust accordingly.
