Which brushes are es­sen­tial?

A make-up artist might have hun­dreds of brushes, but you only need a small hand­ful of key tools.

Good - - BEAUTY -

Foun­da­tion brush

This is not es­sen­tial, es­pe­cially if you’re us­ing a BB cream or re­ally light foun­da­tion. But a brush fin­ish is far su­pe­rior for fuller­cov­er­age foun­da­tion or a pow­der prod­uct.

Fluffy eye­shadow blend­ing brush

Es­sen­tial for get­ting a well-blended ap­pli­ca­tion (never think you can blend your eye­shadow with your fin­gers and get away with it!).

An­gle brush

This brush is ideal for get­ting right into the lash line to ap­ply an eye­shadow as an eye­liner, and also to blend your eye pen­cil.

Pow­der brush

For an even, smooth com­plex­ion, use this brush to buff in pow­der. Per­fect for both set­ting your foun­da­tion and tak­ing away any ex­cess shine.

Blush brush

This can be used with pow­der blush or with a densely pig­mented cream prod­uct. It can also be used to con­tour and high­light (just re­mem­ber to clean it in be­tween the two steps.)
