Now let’s discuss in detailed about the different types of makeup brushes and their uses by taking the examples of 2 well-known brands.

1. Foundation Brush

The primary function of a foundation brush is to facilitate the smooth application of your base or foundation onto the skin. Using a brush of good quality makes all the difference in the world. Opting for a wrong brush can make you appear cakey and washed over. A high-quality foundation brush will allow you to blend the foundation out smoothly so that you can buff the product into the skin, giving it the most natural look.

2. Concealer Brush

A concealer brush is perfect for spot correction. As the name suggests, the use of concealer brushes is to even out concealers – to make the product look as natural as it can on the skin. While using a concealer brush, never blend it out. You should never move the product around, but carefully pat the product onto the skin to conceal the area.

3. Stippling Brush

This is another brush that you would use for your base. The foundation brush helps you to get the product onto the skin smoothly, and the stippling brush gives you an airbrushed look. If you carefully observe the brush, you would see that the ends of the brush are very light and feathery when compared to the base. The light fibers of the brush help you in achieving a flawless, airbrushed finish.

4. Angled Blush Brush

An angled blush brush enables the precise application of the blush. The angled shape of the brush allows it to pick up the product and dust it onto the cheeks ever so softly so that it looks natural.

5. Powder Brush

The primary function of a powder brush is to dust your face with loose or compact powder, without making you look like the ghost from The Grudge. A good powder brush will allow you to set and touch up your makeup without moving any of the other present makeup on your skin.

6. Angled Brush

An angled brush has multiple uses. It can be used for brows and eyeliner. The angled shape of the brush helps to fill in eyebrows in the shape of your choice. The sharp ends also make it convenient to draw out a killer winged liner.


7. Contour Brush

Contouring is one thing that, at any cost, can not be done without a brush. And if you manage to do it, you’d probably end up looking like a clay sculpture. Quite a few people use a blush brush for contouring. A contour brush will have firmer bristles than a blush brush, and a more angled tip. It is specially designed to help you target the areas that you want to contour and shape.

8. Highlight Fan Brush

The bristles in a fan brush are specifically designed for highlighters. The bristles are spread out so that the brush picks up a small amount of the product. It is then slightly dusted on the top of the cheekbones and other areas of the face that needs to be highlighted. It is best to go in with a light hand to avoid using too much product.

9. Blending Brush

A blending brush is a must have when it comes to brushes. This is something you can’t use your fingers for. A good blending brush will help you to soften out any harsh lines after the application of the eyeshadow. The trick to the perfect eyeshadow look is to blend, blend, and when you think you’ve blended enough, blend one more time to achieve perfection.

10. Eye Liner Brush

You know those Instagram video tutorials of piercing winged eyeliners? Yeah, well they didn’t do that with just any brush. You need a particular eye liner brush in order to reach that level of perfection and precision. The brush is designed to pick up and deposit the required amount of product while giving you maximum control that you probably would not find elsewhere.

11. Eyeshadow Brush

An eyeshadow brush helps you to apply eyeshadow, whether it be in the form of cream or powder, smoothly and with precision onto your eyelid. A good eyeshadow brush will pick up a decent amount of the product and will allow you to pack it onto the eyelid with minimal fallout.

12. Bronzer Brush

A bronzer brush is rounded and distributes the product evenly. A big fluffy brush for bronzing helps you achieve that natural, sun-kissed look.

13. Lip Brush

Most of the times we use the doe brush that comes with the lip products, or we apply it directly in the case of lipsticks. However, if you want precision and perfectly lined lips like you see in makeup tutorials and photo shoots, a lip brush is a must.

14. Mascara Brush Or Spoolie

Most people already know how to pick out the best makeup brushes, but how about a brush for your lashes or brows? Of course, you can use the wand that comes with the product when you purchase it, but if you are extremely specific on how you want your lashes to look, then a mascara brush is the way to go.

15. Blush Brushes

Unlike the angled blush brush, this one is not angled. This is somewhat like a powder brush, but more rounded and compacted to pick up the pigments of the blush. The bristles are designed to allow blending so that there are no harsh lines.

Now, let’s discuss about the 2 best brushes to apply blush perfectly.
