Make-up brushes are great for helping you to create a flawless, even base, to give your eyes depth or to even accentuate your cheek bones. However, they can be expensive, especially if you are starting from scratch.
With so many ones available it can be hard to decide on ones that you do need and ones that you don’t. To help, here is a list of the most popular types so you can invest in good brushes that you will actually use.
Foundation brush
This type of brush makes applying cream or liquid foundation that little bit easier and will help to create an even, flawless finish.
Powder brush
A must-have item if you are prone to oily skin. This type of brush is soft and large making it easier to ensure your foundation is set. Invest in a good one that won’t leave bristles on your face.
Blush brush
Your make-up is not complete until you have blended in your blush. This brush helps to define and contour and pick up the blush powder.
Concealer brush
If you are prone to blemishes such as scars, dark circles, broken capillaries or spots, this brush will help you to hide them. It is small and flat making application easy.
Blending brush
This is essential for blending eyeshadow and is great for softening and smudging.
Contouring brush
This type of brush is great for sculpting and lifting your cheek bones, enhancing the brow line and narrowing your face.
