Top 5 Makeup Brushes You Will Always Need


The key to effortless makeup application lies in your brushes. You just need a couple really good ones to get the results that you're looking for.

Foundation Brush

Foundation Brush
Foundation brushes have synthetic, tightly packed bristles that give a streak-free finish to cream and liquid formulas. When using a foundation I always like to put it on my hands first, just to make sure I am not over-applying . You can always add more, buts it's hard to take away.

Cosmetics Concealer Brush

Cosmetics Concealer Brush
Look for a Concealer brush with tapered angles on it, it'll help you get into tiny crevices around the nose, a broad sweep under the eyes and then you can use the fine tip to cover up any blemishes you may have.

Makeup Geek Angled Stippling Brush

Makeup Geek Angled Stippling Brush
Stippling brushes are a mix of natural and synthetic fibers, you can use them with wet or dry formulas.  They are great for applying Bronzer, it gives a nice, light touch and gives a air-brush effect to skin. You always want to apply Bronzer where the sun hits naturally, Cheekbones, Nose and on the Chin.

Fan Brush

Fan Brush
The Fan brush is a mix of natural and synthetic fibers. What it does so well is it puts down a really light dusting product, you can use it for powder, you can use it for Bronzer, I really love using it for Blush though, particularly one that has a lot of sparkle to it. It adds just the right amount, without too much sparkle.

Beauty Eye Shadow Blend Brush - No Color

Beauty Eye Shadow Blend Brush - No Color
There are virtually dozens of eye shadow makeup brushes out there . I like one that's really easy to use and multifunctional. You want something with a big dome to put down a single shade of eye shadow, but then I like to also have something thick that can press on the eyeliner and smudge it out as well.

As you can see, you don't need to own several makeup brushes, especially because many of them can be used for different things, the key is to find the ones you're comfortable with and use them every day.
