Foundation Brush

The foundation brush is a flat top round brush. It is recommended to use this brush for applying a cream or liquid foundation. It helps blend the foundation so well, giving it an airbrush finish. The flat top is specially designed to build proper coverage and hide the fine lines. It is a must-have if you wish to use a brush for applying foundation rather than a sponge.

Concealer Brush

A concealer brush is usually a bit smaller in size, with a flat shape and thick packed brush bristles. You need to hide the discoloration and the blemishes on the face, so to do that job perfectly, you need a brush that smartly targets all your imperfections with the right amount of coverage required. 

Powder Brush

A powder brush is a round fluffy brush, a bit larger. The bristles are dense enough to apply the loose or setting powder across the face precisely. 


Contour Brush

Contour is all about defining the structure, symmetry, and dimension of your face. And to do the job, you need an angular contour brush that can perfectly define the shape and structure of your face. The brush is designed with an angular cut to make the application easier.

Blush Brush

A blush brush is a more rounded, fluffier, and oval-shaped brush used to apply blush to the face. The bristles are so soft, specially designed to add color and brightness, making it look like a natural flushed face. 

Highlighter Brush

A smaller fluffy brush or a fan brush is used to highlight the face. The choice among the both depends on personal preference. All you need is the dust of highlight on the face to complete the shimmery glow, as these brushes do that job perfectly.

Eye shadow Brush

For the smooth application of the eye shadow on the lids, you need an eye shadow brush. It is a flat brush in a smaller size, which helps pick the color easily from the palate and evenly apply it on the lid. It also helps in smudging the shades for a smoky look.

Blending Brush

Your eye makeup is incomplete without this brush. You need to blend your shades to complete your look. You cannot step out of your house without that perfect blending of your shadows. To achieve this purpose, you need a blending brush, which is a smaller in size, rounded fluffy brush. You can also apply and blend the transition shade into the crease.

Eye Liner Brush

An angled eyeliner brush is a thin, fine-shaped brush. It makes eyeliner application very easy and smooth, especially for beginners. In addition, is the best tool to create that perfect wing.

Brow Brush with Spoolie

It is a double-ended brush, with a brow brush at one end and a spoolie at the other. The brow brush is a small flat brush with stiff bristles. It allows you to apply the powders, pomades, and gels and enhance the brow shape with ease. The stiff bristles also help in filling the empty spaces in the brows. The spoolie tends to blend and soften the edges. You are done with the perfectly defined brows. 


Lip Brushes

Lip Brushes help you to achieve Pout-perfect lips. All you need is a lip liner brush; a thin, fine brush used to define the shape of your lips. And a short flat brush with soft bristles to apply the lipstick. You can easily mix and match different lipstick shades with the brush creating your desired shade.

Beauty Blender Sponge

Though a beauty blender sponge is not a brush, it is a much-needed makeup tool. It is an oval shape, soft sponge allowing you to apply makeup evenly. It helps to blend makeup into the skin, leaving an airbrushed flawless look. 


Keep in mind to invest in good quality brushes. Better the brushes, the more they will last and, the brush will not lose its shape or bristles anytime soon. They make your life easier, therefore, the application will be smooth and blending will be effortless, giving your makeup a flawless look. And don’t forget to clean them regularly. Dirty and neglected brushes can lead to causing different skin issues.
