Yes, there are a hundred brands selling hundred different kinds of brushes and they’re expensive. Not all of us can afford to buy those sets and the truth is, there’s no need to buy every brush out there. The only makeup brushes you will need are a few basic ones and today, we are going to tell you all about them.

Here are the only makeup brushes you need to invest in.

Fluffy Face Powder Brush

Although sponges are more popular but we recommend going for a face powder brush that’s soft and fluffy. It allows you to apply as much and as little as you want. It’s the right choice.


A Blush Brush

A loosely bristled blush brush is the difference between getting rosy cheeks and looking like a clown. Nobody wants to look like a clown. Make sure you get a brush that’s slightly domed and is about the same size as the apple of your cheeks.


Angled Brush for Eyebrows

Eyebrows are important. Whether you want to accept it or not but they are crucial to your look and you need to have the right tools to make them. A firm, angled brush, is just what you need for this purpose. Whether you want to fill in or draw them from scratch. This tool should be a staple in your makeup bag.


Flat Highlighter Brush

Who doesn’t like a little bling? If strobing is your thing than a highlighter brush is crucial for you. Choose a medium-sized, firmly bristled and rather flat brush, so that you can press shimmer onto your skin with the wide side, then blend it well with the edge. If it’s too fluffy, it won’t hold up and you won’t be able to press the shimmer in. We don’t want a face full of sparkle and that’s what ends up happening with a fluffy brush.
