Any good makeup artist will tell you that the brushes are as important as the makeup application itself. Brushes can create a perfect finish helping to move the makeup around the face in a fluid manner and giving you the control you need for blending. Brushes should be used for every part of your makeup routine from applying your base, through to blusher, highlighting and applying your eye makeup.

concealer brush: This makes it easier to apply your concealer in those hard to reach places like the corner of the inner eye and the lash line

Eye shadow brushes: Makeup brushes come in three sizes, the largest is to be used for applying your base eye color, a smaller brush for applying a color in the crease and a thin chiseled brush for getting in to those hard to reach places around the rim of the eyes. The flat small fluffy bristles are designed to give you precision, in order to apply your eye makeup correctly makeup brush kit

Angled brow brush: This is a toothbrush style brush used to comb brows in place that can then be set with a gel, helping to achieve a perfect finish

Blusher brush: The wide rounded shape and angled sides of this particular brush help to get your blusher application exactly right on the apples of your cheek

Lip Brush: Always use a brush when applying lipstick for a precise look. The brush allows you to get right into those hard to reach corners without smudging and will help to give your lips definition. Look for a brush that has a firm dome shaped end that will help you to keep the color within your lip line rather then smudging it over the edges

There are many kinds of makeup brushes available, the synthetic ones although cheaper have courser and stronger bristles but can tend to scratch the face and won’t give such a smooth finish. Natural hair brushes are the preferred choice, they tend to be softer and are usually made from sable, squirrel, or even goat hair. Obviously the better the brush the more expensive the bristles.
