This past weekend I was out of town with friends and I was the designated hair and makeup do-er (which is my favorite job ever!) While I was doing one of my friends makeup, she asked me what brushes she absolutely needed in her collection, so I thought I would put a list together for her, and for everyone else! You can buy the best makeup in the world, but in order for it to look beautiful and flawless on your skin, you need the right brushes to apply it with.
Foundation Brush– This foundation brush is AMAZING so let me explain why. The brush head is so soft yet dense so it applies your foundation flawlessly. The brush does not absorb too much of your foundation like some other foundation brushes do. This brush allows you to buff the product into your skin for an even coverage. Need I say more?!
Powder Brush– A powder brush is a must have in every makeup brush collection. I’ve always searched for a brush soft enough to use on my face, and I finally found one and it only costs $6!
Bronzer Brush– This brush is dense and applies the perfect amount of bronzer to your face. It’s a high quality brush and the brush hairs do not fall out of it as much as other bronzer brushes I’ve used in the past.
Under Eye Brush– This brush is an absolute necessity in my makeup routine. After I apply my concealer, I HAVE to set my concealer with powder or else my mascara will soak into my concealer and I will have black dots under my eyes. This tapered brush is perfect for fitting underneath the eye area and I never have to worry about my mascara running after I set my concealer with this brush and powder.
Blush Brush– I love this tapered blush brush because it applies the perfect wash of color to the cheeks and it is easy to blend out.
Highlighter Brush– This fan brush is my favorite brush to highlight with because it allows you to dust on the perfect amount of product onto your cheekbones.
