How To: Assemble a Makeup Brush Kit
Follow These Eight Easy Steps
The powder brush should be soft and fluffy and have a medium dome so the powder is distributed evenly over your face.
Your blush brush should have slightly angled bristles and be at least three inches at its longest tip to avoid streaking.
The foundation brush can be used as an alternative to your fingers or a sponge for applying liquid foundation; it should be flat and have stiff bristles that allow for sheer coverage.
Similar to the foundation brush, the concealer brush should have fine dense bristles that help cover blemishes accurately.
A brush with small bristles should be used to apply shadow; a flat brush to blend the shadow.
The eyebrow brush should have a tiny comb on one side and stiff bristles on the other.
Tip: In a pinch, you can use a toothbrush to tame your brows.
Used for applying eye liner or for filling in your eyebrows, a thin stiff-bristled brush provides the most precision.
For applying lipsticks and glosses, you’ll need a small dense brush.
