Did you know that one tool can completely transform your makeup application? That’s right; with the proper brushes, you can go from amateur to professional makeup artist overnight! But with various brands, shapes, sizes, bristle types, and price points, it’s hard to know where to begin. Keep reading for some of our favorite makeup brushes for flawless application.
Did somebody say multipurpose makeup brush? That’s exactly what the MAC 170 Rounded Slant Brush ($28.27, shop here) is. This brush features dense bristles and is designed to apply liquid and cream foundation smoothly and easily – even to hard-to-reach areas!
If you love your lipsticks, you should also love your lip brush. Smith Cosmetics 304 Detailed Lip Brush ($18, shop here) is among our favs, and it’s compatible with cream, liquid, and powder formulas! Plus, its fixed, antimicrobial handle is ideal for precision and blending.
A concealer brush that makes dark circles disappear? Count us in. The Sigma Beauty F70 Concealer Brush ($16, shop here) has a tapered, flat head evenly spreads and blends product. Its skinny and compact design allows easy maneuvering around hard-to-reach areas like the inner corners of your eyes!
More modern and less traditional? We’d say so. The Artis Elite Pal Brush ($65, shop here) is a fascinating design. It has a grip pad and finger indent so that you can comfortably apply makeup to all areas of the face. Plus, its synthetic fibers seamlessly blend any liquid, cream, or powder formula. That’s high quality and longevity at its finest.
The Morphe V112 Fluffy Fan Powder Brush ($20, shop here) provides excellent coverage. A tiny bit of powder, cream, or liquid highlighter, bronzer, or blush will go a long way. Fun fact? This baby is also vegan.
E.l.f. brushes are seriously underrated! For instance, the sheer e.l.f. Eyeshadow Brush ($2, shop here) knows how to pick up the right amount of product – so much so that there’s never any excess to shake off! Not to mention, the handle fits perfectly in our hands. And for just $2, who would pass this beauty up?
