Makeup Brush Sets – 10 Must Haves For Your Professional Brush Collection
When looking to build a collection of professional makeup brushes, people often wonder which brushes are the best choices for their collection.
- Powder Brush: You will want to look for one that is fairly flat and has rounded edges.
- Blush Brush: The size of this one is critical.
- Contour Brush: Some people prefer one that has a flat edge. For contouring the nose and cheeks, a smaller version of the blush brush is typically a much more versatile choice for contouring.
- Highlight Brush: If you intend to use this primarily under the eyes to apply highlighter powder, a good choice would be one that is dense and has rounded tips.
- Eyeshadow Brush: In order to achieve a variety of looks and to get the best eyeshadow application, there are two primary brushes that you’ll need in this category.
- Detail Eyeshadow Brush: The second eyeshadow brush that you’ll need is one for detailing.
- Eyeliner Brush: Look for a tapered, fine tip that will allow you to apply cake and gel eyeliner with a thin and precise line.
