I love using my make-up brushes, I think my make-up looks to much better when I apply it with a brush. I use a lot of brushes, but I know that they’re not all necessary. Which brushes are a must have? I think these three are:
A powder brush, you can use it for finishing powder, powder foundation, bronzer, highlighter and blush (though I like you use an angled blush brush for that). You can use this brush for a lot of things, so you probably need this one.
A crease brush. You can apply the eyeshadow on your lid with your fingers, but I think you need a brush for the crease. This brush has a perfect shape for the crease, and makes the eyeshadow look less harsh. It’s also easier to blend eyeshadow with this brush.
Last but not least, a small angled brush. You can use it to apply gel eyeliner or make a line with eyeshadow. I use this brush a lot, because I often use eyeshadow to line my eyes instead of eyeliner.
Which brushes you need, depends on what make-up you use. Some people don’t use eyeshadow, so of course you don’t need a crease brush then. But if you wear make-up “full-face”, I think these brushes are necessary. You can apply foundation, concealer and eyeshadow with your fingers, so you don’t really need brushes for that.
I still like to use brushes, because it works better for me (and I like playing with my new brush set). But I think -especially when you’re a make-up newbie- you don’t need a whole set, but just these three. Thank you for reading! 🙂
