And the ones you’ll actually need!

Here is a breakdown of the actual brushes you’ll need for perfect strokes to blush, from the fluffiest to the sleekest. You will need a fluffy powder brush and you can use the same for applying your blush. Also, a flat highlighter brush for your cheekbones and a firm-bristled angled brush for brows.  Finally, a small tapered brush for your eye shadow will sort you right out.

Use a blend of all quality of brushes. Not all time a brush’s efficiency can be judged by its cost. For important stuff like foundation, eye shadow it is better to go for premium brand brushes. For the rest you don’t have to spend that much.

Good brushes for the base of your makeup. Take foundation dot it across my face and use this brush to spread it evenly and blend it right.

A stiffening Brush

I have this in two sizes. A small ones for areas that need more concentration. For example under your eyes, closer to mouth, nose, temple region I use this to blend.  For the larger area like the cheeks, jaw, use the bigger ones. Go in circular motion to spread and even out the foundation further.
