Brushes make a huge difference with makeup application, but there are so many different types of brushes on market, which one should you get? First up you need to assess what makeup you use on a regular basis, so you can buy brushes based on that.

Foundation Brush

Use it to smooth liquid or cream foundation for streak-free application. Alternately you can use it for patting on under-eye concealer.

Beauty Blender

The sponge’s broad sides can be used to smooth out product on your face while the tip can be used to reach creases around the nose and to pinpoint small areas. You can also use it for applying cream blush, blending out harsh makeup lines, and removing excess product.

Kabuki Brush

This big brush is perfect for softly applying bronzers and powders, and for evenly distributing product across your face or body. It can also buff out harsh lines by swirling the brush around your face.

Powder Brush

The long, fluffy bristles of powder brush can evenly diffuse loose powders. Alternatively, it can be used to sweep blush from the apples of your cheeks along your cheekbones.

Angled Blush Brush

The slanted bristles make it easier to apply products perfectly to your cheekbones. Some people use it to apply contour powder below your cheekbones to emphasize your natural contours.

Concealer Brush:

The small, synthetic brush is ideal for pinpointing specific areas that need extra coverage. You can also use it to clean up messy lipstick edges.

Blending Brush

The fluffy bristles diffuse eye shadow in the crease of your eye. Blending Brush can also be used on your face. You can blend highlighter on your cheekbones, brow bones, and cupid’s bow.

Smudger Brush

As the name suggests, smudger brush can soften eyeliner for a smoky, sultry look. This brush can also be used to target areas around the eye, such as the inner and outer corners and the brow bone, when applying intense pigment.

Angled Eyeliner Brush

This brush easily lines lashes with cream or gel liner or shadow. It can also fill in and define sparse brows with brow powder.

Lash/Brow Comb/Brush:

The duo brush can be used to comb, tame, and de-clump your lashes and brows. You can also smudge eyeliner gently with the brush bristles.

Fan Brush

Use fan brush to clean up fallen product or gently apply powders. Alternately, you can dip the ends in mascara and paint your lashes for a no-makeup look, hide eyelash glue with gel liner, and de-clump eyelashes.

After all, we recommend that you only get brushes as you need them, because if you spend a bunch of money on a big set to start with, it’s very likely that you’ll wind up using only a few brushes from it.
