There is a myriad of different make-up brushes available, making it difficult for those of us who aren’t professional make-up artists to know which is best.
As you enter the world of make-up brushes, you’ll probably find yourself liking certain types more than others, but for those with no prior knowledge – we researched the best brushes to get you started.
For your eyes
The crease brush
Acting as a two-in-one tool, the crease brush is designed to add colour to the crease of the eyelid, while also working brilliantly as a blending tool.
The domed shadow brush
Tiny sponge applicators have nothing on the domed shadow brush; it’s unique shape helps to pack shadow on the eyelid for maximum impact.
The skinny eyeliner brush
A thin, pointed eyeliner brush will help you apply gel and liquid eyeliners with more precision than the standard applicators they come with.
The smudge brush
A must for the smokey eye look, a smudge brush has short rounded bristles to blend out eyeliner around the lash line.
For your face
The angled cheek brush
Working primarily as a contouring tool, the angled cheek brush also works well when applying blush to the apples of the cheeks.
The pointed foundation brush
Tapered to a point, this foundation brush is ideal to use with liquid foundations as it gets into all those hard to reach crevices.
For your lips
The precision lip brush
A precision lip brush will help you draw a flawless cupids bow and with it’s small head it makes it easy to fill even the thinnest of lips.
