When choos­ing brushes, I would firstly decide on how much you want to invest, most make-​up artists have built up their kits over a num­ber of years pick­ing and choos­ing the tools they enjoy using most.

A good qual­ity brush, if you look after it cor­rectly, could be a one-​off buy. So when choos­ing a good qual­ity brush, check the den­sity of the bris­tles they should be com­pact, soft and should not shed.

For a starter brush kit you will need the fol­low­ing brushes: -

Foun­da­tion brush – syn­thetic flat or round

Eye­shadow – a wide flat brush, which can be used for cov­er­ing the whole Eye area with shadow

Eye­shadow blended – a nat­ural round soft long bris­tle brush designed for blend­ing eyeshadow

Eye­liner brush – a small bris­tle brush stiff can be used wet or dry to apply a pre­cise line

Blusher brush – a soft round shaped brush not too big no larger than the apples of your cheeks

Lip Brush – Firm long syn­thetic bris­tled brush shaped to a point used for the pre­ci­sion appli­ca­tion of lip­stick gloss etc.

Pow­der Brush – A large soft nat­ural bris­tled brush, which can be used for loose and com­pact pow­der or bronzer.

Using the cor­rect tools will give you a pro­fes­sional fin­ish to your makeup application.
