Applying makeup can, at times, feel like an overwhelming chore. With the many varieties of makeup and various styles of brushes, you might ask, “Which brushes go with which makeup in order to facilitate the proper application?”

Types of Makeup Brushes

This informative guide for types of makeup brushes will teach you the proper way to apply makeup to produce an optimal result. This is the first of 3 articles specifically about makeup brushes and how to use them properly. Also included are our top picks for the best brushes we recommend.


Types of Makeup Brushes

  1. Foundation Brush:

The foundation brush is primarily used to smooth the base onto your skin. A high quality brush will produce quality results. There is no need to break the bank when seeking out a good foundation brush. With that said, a cheap brush is not recommended. We feel that a “middle of the road “ brush will work just fine and will assist in creating a smoother application and will in turn create a more natural look when blended into the skin.

  1. Concealer Brush

A concealer brush is used with concealer to create a more natural skin appearance, hiding those pesky blemishes. It is recommended to gently pat the skin with concealer on the blemished areas instead of brushing in order to create a more blended application.

  1. Stippling Brush

Yet another brush used for your base makeup, the stippling cosmetic brush is used with the foundation application after the foundation brush. It is mainly used to give you a perfect airbrushed appearance to the skin. It aids you in creating a flawless finish with the light fibers.

  1. Angled Blush Brush

The angled fibers style of the blush brush enables precision of applying blush to the face. It very gently enables application of blush in a way that looks soft and natural.

  1. Powder Brush

A well made powder brush will help you to set and also touch up your makeup look without messing up any of the other makeup you already applied. The primary function powder brushes softly brush your face with either loose or compact powder without making you look washed out or ghastly.
