It is essential for the foundation application to be as smooth as possible, so as to even out the imperfections on one’s face. For this reason, an important part of your brush buy will be the foundation brush, which will aid in spreading out the substance in a seamless manner, helping save your face from looking cakey or streaky.
From dark spots to pimples, a concealer supplements the foundation to screen out leftover flaws either partially covered or not covered at all. If you’re looking for a flawless look, you should definitely throw a concealer brush in your buys without thinking twice!
To build atop the canvas of your foundation and concealer, the blush sets the tone of your makeup, bringing color to your cheeks and thus livening up your face! Using your fingers or a sponge to do so you can pick up too much product and leave your face smeared with a bright mark that is hard to get rid of. If you want the application to be light on your skin, a blush brush is necessary as it helps with a slight dusting that can be gradually deepened!
Angled Contour Brush
Some beginners as well as casual make-up fans use just a tiny bit of contour to add depth to the look. For them, an angled contour brush is manna because of their ability to glide steadily down the face, allowing to seamlessly build upon the natural curve of the cheek bones.
To top it all off and prevent your products from breaking, smudging or moving, it is essential to invest in a powder brush as it settles onto the face without picking up the products that is already there, providing a protective sheet that helps the makeup last longer.
