When it comes to makeup application, the makeup brushes you choose are just as important as the makeup, especially when it comes to face makeup.
There are thousands of makeup brushes available, and it can be confusing when picking out what brushes you need. There are plenty of makeup brush sets for sale, but I prefer to buy individual makeup brushes, especially for my face. These are my recommendations for face makeup brushes guaranteed to give you those flawless makeup looks you crave.
These face makeup brushes are the best makeup tools to use when wanting to create a flawless makeup look.
The right foundation brush will give your skin the perfect, airbrushed finish. There are a few different types of foundation brushes available. There is a flat foundation brush like the MAC 190 Foundation Brush which is ideal for applying a very liquid foundation. I like to use a 190 Brush and then finish with the MAC Duo Fibre Foundation Brush to further blend out the foundation and give skin a softer look.
A concealer brush makes covering under eye circles, spots and imperfections easy. I highly recommend adding one or two concealer brushes to your makeup bag.
A kabuki brush is used for applying finishing powder and is a must-have for anyone serious about their makeup. I like a full kabuki brush with a short handle.
A long-handled blush brush is essential to your makeup routine. I always have a few blush brushes in my makeup bag. I use a different blush brush for cream products and powder products, and I like to keep them separate.
An angled contour brush is an excellent tool for applying bronzer and contour products. I recommend keeping two contour brushes in your makeup bag; one contour brush for cream products and one contour brush for powder products.
A fan brush is a must-have brush for highlighting your cheekbones.
If you invest in the right makeup brushes and take good care of them, they should last you for years.
