The Beginner’s Guide to Makeup Brushes


We are advocates of low-maintenance beauty, but we are also believers of investing in the right makeup tools — especially when it comes to the best makeup brushes. Sure, it’s easier to be lazy and use the foam wands included in a compact or our own fingers for blending (which then leads to blotchy eyeshadow and dirty fingers). We don’t know about you, but when we’re putting our hard-earned cash into buying our favorite beauty products, we expect them to look amazing when applied. So why skimp on the vessel that is bringing your beauty creation to life? 

There are countless options when it comes to makeup brushes and yes, it can be overwhelming, but we’ve narrowed down what we think are the must-have brushes for everyone’s makeup bag, and broken down when and how to use them. Trust us, once you start implementing these into your routine, you’ll notice how much easier it is to blend, conceal and more.
