The 7 Brushes You Need to Apply Your Face Makeup Perfectly

Using the correct style of makeup brush is an absolute must if you want your makeup to look flawless. The shape of a brush can completely change the way your makeup applies to your face, which means using the wrong brush can screw up everything that you just worked so hard on!

Already feeling overwhelmed? Watch my YouTube video where I explain every step to applying a flawless face of makeup here:

It doesn’t help that there’s 300 million different brushes out there (both in size & shape!). But don’t worry girlies- I’m here to help with a list of the exact type of brushes you actually need.

I link the specific brush that I have, but there’s plenty of different choices out there if you want the least expensive option! (Morphe is great for this). Just remember, a good brush set is an investment. I’ve had my brushes for YEARS. And as an FYI- Sigma has a 2 year warranty on their brushes. I completely replaced my entire set before that 2 years was up for FREE. So worth it!

Foundation & Concealer

Ditch the brush. A damp beauty sponge is ideal for applying liquid products like foundation & concealer because it will soak up any excess product & help prevent your makeup from looking cakey. The finish is also just so much more flawless in my opinion!

Face Setting Powderder

Use a large, fluffy brush to apply powder all over your face to set your foundation. Make sure it’s not too dense or this will pack on extra coverage.

This is technically a contour brush, but it’s perfect for setting powder underneath your eyes because it’s tapered.

Bronzer 1

Ok slight emergency. The brush I’ve used for the past couple years for bronzer that I LOVE appears to no longer exist anymore (panicking)… so I linked one that is exactly the same style & shape (Bronzer 1). This is also not technically a bronzer brush, but I find the shape is great for giving me some all over warmth. Also, something about the microfiber bristles really helps prevent it from looking too pigmented and harsh!

Bronzer 2

I did just started trying out a new brush shape for bronzer application (Bronzer 2), and I really like this as well! It’s smaller & tapered, so totally up to personal preference.

Blush

I find an angled brush like this applies blush perfectly! It allows you to focus the majority of product on the apples of your cheeks, but still have some additional color around that area so it doesn’t look like you have 2 circles of blush on your cheeks (not cute).

Highlight

Make sure the brush you use for highlight isn’t dense or this will apply wayyy too much product to your face & make it look like a harsh streak. This brush is amazing!

If you have all of those brushes in your collection, you are set and so ready to apply a flawless face of makeup!
