WHEN un­sure what to get your loved one this Christ­mas, make-up brush sets are a god­send. From high end to drug store pric­ing, there is some­thing to suit ev­ery­one’s bud­get. Your make-up ap­pli­ca­tion is only as flaw­less as the tools you use.

Lots of women shy away from spend­ing a huge amount on brushes, but the truth is you need the right tools to cre­ate a flaw­less fin­ish, from blend­ing your eye­shadow to cre­at­ing seam­less skin.

Brushes are so much bet­ter to use than fin­gers when it comes to ap­ply­ing foun­da­tion and con­cealer. They will evenly spread the make-up on your face and won’t de­posit oil to your face like your fin­gers would.

When it comes to eye­shadow brushes, the shape and an­gles help tar­get spe­cific ar­eas and cre­ate dif­fer­ent eye make-up looks — from your blend­ing brush to soften out any harsh lines to your eye­shadow brush that will de­posit colour and pig­ment.
