When it comes to the tricks of the trade with makeup, the brushes you choose to use can make or break your efforts at creating a flawless, beautiful look. There are so many to choose from, and it can be a little overwhelming to figure out which brushes you actually need vs. extras for an added touch. To help you out when you’re putting together a makeup brush set, here are some pointers on which brushes you want to include in your kit to ensure you have the necessary tools.


Foundation Brush

This brush will be essential in setting a flawless tone for your look, by allowing you to seamlessly apply your foundation. It’s a mid-size brush and the bristles can be varying lengths but are generally soft. By using it to blend your foundation carefully, your skin’s shading will be consistent.


Blush Brush

A brush for your blush will also be soft and mid-sized. It comes in a variety of shapes, including domed and angled, and is used to apply blush, using upward sweeps that won’t disturb your foundation. The splash of vibrant color you add to your cheeks with a blush brush will look natural.

Brow/Eyeliner Brush

This dual purpose brush is also small and usually angled. It serves as a brow brush by filling in scant areas to give them a fuller look, and for your eyeliner, you can create the perfect lash line by starting at your inner eye corner and going out to just past the edge.


Lip Brush

This brush is generally small and has a flat, round tip which is perfect for defining your lips by blending liner and lipstick. It can also be used to apply concealer; just be sure it’s clean first.


Contour Brush

Finally, this tapered, flexible brush is used to finish off your look by reaching all the contours of your face. It’s also great for adding a darker color under the cheekbones to draw attention to them.
