The Best Brush For The Job


Ever wonder which brushes are best for your foundation, concealer, powder, and lipstick? , Whether you should spend a fortune on a new set, and how long your brushes should last. This week, we find out which brushes are best for all of your makeup products, and get special tips on using them.

Blush: MAC Duo Fiber #187 Brush & Tom Ford Cheek Brush

"Generally, I like to apply blush to the apples of the cheeks,” . “If you have high cheekbones, apply the blush farther out and concentrate more on your cheekbones. I like the MAC brush for cream blush, and the Tom Ford  for powder.

Bronzer: EcoTools Kabuki Bronzer Brush

"This little brush is so cute and super soft, and it's great for creating a natural glow with bronzer,” “Always apply bronzer where the sun would naturally hit your face, and avoid those that are sparkly. They look good only on your cheeks, not all over your face."

Eye Shadow: MAC #217 Brush

"This brush is perfect for applying and blending color,”  “I love the soft domed shape, which makes blending a breeze!"

Concealer: Face Stockholm #15 Brush

"This is the only brand that makes a brush this size and shape. The brush has a very thin profile, so you can easily get just the right amount of concealer where you want it, “For pimples I like to be able to feather out the product, and this brush lets me do that perfectly."

Lipstick: Japonesque Pro Eye Detailer Brush

"These are meant for the eyes, but I love to use them for lipstick, especially when you want a sharp line for a bright or bold color,”  “These brushes come in ideal sizes (I like the small and medium for lips), and have the perfect stiffness."
