Powder brush

The primary function of a powder brush is to dust your face with a loose or compact powder (without making you look like a ghost from some horror movie). A good powder brush allows you to set up and touch up your makeup without moving any of the other makeup on your skin. Natural brushes are absolutely amazing when it comes to powder because and they're ideal for blending to a smooth, natural finish.

Foundation Brush

A flat foundation brush is a classic! Whether you're using liquid or cream foundation, this brush makes a serious difference in the quality of smoothness. A high-quality foundation brush lets you blend the foundation so that you can buff the product into the skin, giving it the most natural look with a streak-free finish. You can freely use synthetic ones because they are great to use with liquid or creamy products and they will not trap makeup.

Blush brush

The final step is a perfect finish! So don't get to the end and ruin everything -- just smile to locate the apples of your cheeks, and use short upward strokes to dust the color out toward the hairline. Vegan blush brushes move freely, allowing you to not only pick up enough product in one swipe, but also to blend it out beautifully.

Concealer brush

Firm, narrow, and tapered at the end, concealer brushes give you absolute precision! Perfect for spot corrections (who said pimples?)! You should avoid natural ones (because it will absorb the creamy texture) and use synthetic instead -no muss, no fuss.

Angled Brush

Two in one! You do not have to spend money on two different brushes, because you can use the angled brush to thicken your eyebrows and the sharp end to draw out a killer winged liner. Choose synthetic because they are flat and handy for creating thin, precise lines and give you maximum control.

Blending Brush

A blending brush is a must-have! You can use it to soften any harsh lines after applying your eyeshadow. When you want your eyeshadow perfect, the trick is to blend, blend, blend ... and when you think it's over, blend one more time! A good synthetic brush picks up a decent amount of the product and allows you to pack it onto the eyelid with minimal fallout.

Lip brush

A thin, pointed lip brush is the best thing ever for applying lip color flawlessly and precisely (especially dark shades)! If you want absolute perfection on your lips, a synthetic lip brush is will get you to victory!
