When it comes to makeup, the brushes are just as, if not more important than the actual makeup. A good set of high quality brushes has the ability to make even cheap makeup look amazing, while the wrong brushes will take away from the look of high quality, designer make up. Brushes can be expensive but are certainly worth every cent of the price because they are the most important took when it comes to applying makeup. With hundreds of brushes available, it can be difficult to know which brushes to choose and which brushes are unnecessary. We’ve compiled a list of brushes that every girl who uses makeup should have in her kit.
The Beauty Blender
While not exactly a brush, the beauty blender has become the go to product for blending makeup, applying foundation, contouring and highlighting as well as a number of other things. The beauty blender has become an essential tool in every make up artist’s collection. While the beauty blender is on the pricier side (as are most high end brushes) you won’t be able to get the same amount of precision and high end application with any other product. Most people claim that the beauty blender gives an airbrushed look which is definitely something worth spending money.
A Foundation Brush
A foundation brush is crucial to applying foundation correctly. While people use their fingers as a replacement, a brush will ensure that you’re getting the amount of coverage that you need with the product. Dip the brush in foundation and apply in a circulation motion to get the best results.
The Blush Brush
The blush brush is crucial for applying blush and highlighter to your face. The soft bristles ensure that you’re blush is applied to perfection. The best part about this brush is that it can be used for applying powder in addition to highlighter and blush!
The Eye Shadow Brush
Eye shadow is an integral part of any makeup look and therefore it’s critical to have this brush in order to apply and blend your shadows. A great brush will not only ensure long lasting application, it will help you blend your shadows to create the perfect smoky eye!
A Lip Brush
A lip brush will ensure that when you apply lip gloss or lipstick that your color goes on exactly where you want it to go and that you can shape your lips the way you like. We’ve all had those times when we’ve applied lipstick way outside our natural lip line by accident because the tip was too broad. You can ensure that never happens again with a lip brush.
