Best Makeup Brushes

Article Contents

Your makeup products are only as good as the tools you use to apply them. You can transform a common everyday drugstore foundation into a professional looking airbrushed finish. Take a gooey lip product and use it to sculpt and define your lips, versus applying it with a finger. Brushes reduce your risk of breakouts as long as you keep them clean. They also reduce the risk of wasting your products because they only pick up a little at a time. The following lists offer the best brushes on the market.

Best Makeup Brush Set:

Buying your makeup brushes in a set not only saves you money, but equips you with everything you need. This makes applying makeup easier and more enjoyable, with professional-looking results. The ideal set should include application and blending brushes for the eyes and face. Some can perform more than one task; for example, lip and liner brushes can usually be used interchangeably. These brushes are soft and gentle on the skin, while giving you results that will exceed your expectations.

          Best Bronzer Brush:

          A bronzer brush can double as a blush, highlighter contour, or foundation brush, depending on how you like to wear your bronzer. For full on glam and tan, use the body brush to take your bronzer from face to neck to chest and finally, shoulders. Others may want just a hint of color where the sun would naturally hit the skin, so use the rounded brushes for a soft and light application. Use the flat brush for cream or cream-to-powder formulas because you need to avoid using hands, and sponges can cake it on and look uneven. Whether you dip, swirl, dab, dot, swipe, or sweep, there is the perfect brush to match your favorite bronzing style. These brushes have been chosen because they are considered top-of-the-line by makeup artists and beauty fans. All of these are great for any skin tone from fair to dark. These are all also worth the money and are truly ideal for heavy constant use.

                Powder brushes are ideal for loose or pressed powder-based foundations, finishing powders, or illuminating highlighters. The one thing that sets these apart from other tools is the fact that this brush typically has a larger and more compact set of bristles. This helps to cover your entire face and/or chest quickly and evenly. It is great for working with larger surface areas, blending, or wicking away excess product. All of these products have been chosen because they all have a great following, are highly recommended on YouTube (and some of my personal favorites).

                    Best Foundation Brush:

                    No one wants to apply foundation with fingers. Not only does this make a mess, you don't get even-looking coverage. A sponge can have similar results, and often, we dont change them out as often as we should. These can build up a cesspool of bacteria which can break out the skin. Use a foundation brush for smooth, even coverage. Not only is this going to prevent breakouts, but it will be a lot faster and easier. It doesn't matter if you typically use liquid, powder, or cream foundations, these brushes will give you flawless even coverage (be sure to pick the tool that fits with the product consistency). Every one of these products have been chosen because they give you the best bang for your buck. They are all made with lasting quality materials, come at a reasonable price point. They have been chosen because their bristles will hold their shape and continue to perform beautifully with daily use.

                            Best Concealer Brush:

                            Concealer has a tendency to be on the thick and creamy side, and thats exactly the thing we like about them. This poses a challenge when it comes to application, because blending is the key to hiding those unwanted flaws. Applying concealer with a brush is a great way to keep oils from your hands from making a breakout worse. Other tools may not give you the coverage you need. Brushes allow the product to blend into skin without looking caked-on or splotchy. Be sure to smooth the edges of the concealer for seamless blending with your foundation layer. All of these brushes have been chosen because they are all the perfect size for any skin issue that may need to be concealed. They have all gotten incredible reviews and have a loyal following.

                                      Best Eyeshadow Brush:

                                      The most important thing you want to look for in an eye shadow brush is versatility. You may wear your eye shadow differently depending on the time of day, the colors you use, and the level of depth you want to achieve. You need a brush that will allow you to control the right amount of product, work in a swift manner, and keep the shimmery stuff on your eyes instead of your face. Larger brushes are great for overall application and blending, while slimmer models are great for getting close to the lash line - especially when working with darker colors.

                                      There is a shadow brush here to meet all of your specific needs; crease, highlight, all over lid color and blending. The eyeshadow brush category really has many options to choose from so I have selected the best for each sub-category. All of these tools together will give you the ideal professional look, or choose a few that know you will everyday. All of these options have gotten awesome reviews and avid makeup users love them all.

                                          Best Lip Brush:

                                          The ideal lip brush needs to be firm enough to pick up your lip products, but soft enough to conform to your delicate lip shape. It is easier to apply lip products evenly with the use of a small lip brush. You will not get the same precision applying your lipstick directly from the tube. It is especially recommended for richer and highly-pigmented colors like reds and berry tones. Pots that do not come with tools - balms and glosses - are best applied hands-free with a lip brush. This way, you are sure to get the perfect amount. All of these products have been chosen because they will take even the messiest, creamiest formulas and help you apply them with precision. These tools are all very popular in the makeup and beauty world and are all pretty affordable as well.

                                                        Size is what you really need to take into consideration when choosing your blush brush. If you generally like to contour, you may prefer a small to medium size to get right on the tops of the cheek. Opt for a medium to large brush if you like wearing bronzer as a blush, or if you like a light all-over dusting of color in the general area. Shape is the other thing you need to consider before making your final decision. Angled brushes are great for sweeping color out from the inner nose area to the outer edge of the face, then showing off your blush with a contour color. Use a rounded tip brush for building up a higher concentration of color in a specific area, then blend.

                                                        These brushes have been chosen for their versatility, whether you prefer flat, classic or tapered tips, we have the perfect product here for you. All of these brushes are actually very versatile and could work with many great formulas. They are all high quality brands that are great for at home or professional application.

Fill in your brows to define your beautiful eyes. A perfectly sculpted brow is like the frame around a work of art; that is your eye. You can use a bit of dark eye shadow, a brow pencil, or both. The key to looking natural is blending, of course. Enter your brow brush. You want slightly firm bristles to work the product into coarse eyebrow hairs, and ability to smudge the product into the outer edges. All of these brushes have been selected due to the fact that they are angled, making shaping brows virtually fool-proof. This time I have also included various price point in case you do not spend a huge amount of time or money on your brows, there are high end and economical options to choose from. All of these are great quality tools with high durability as usual.

Start with the basics, and use your kabuki to apply any type of powder, loose minerals, bronzer, highlighter, and blush. The second way you want to use it is to remove excess powder. Once you get your setting or finishing powder onto the skin, you need to remove the excess to keep the rest of your makeup flawlessly in place. Kabuki brushes can come with a stump-like or short handle for close-up control. These brushes are ideal for "all-over-the-face" application because bristle shapes tend to be a bit on the larger side.

                                                                  I have included various sizes in case you want a studio style or travel friendly option. All of these are ideal for flawless even coverage and a makeup must-have. These have won incredible reviews and their are also a couple of newbies as well as cult classics listed here.
