How to choose your first makeup brushes

Learn about the five key brushes you should be thinking about when getting your first set, and how to choose the right one depending on the application.

1) Foundation Brush

Choose a brush with a lot of bristles packed into the tip, it makes it sturdier and stiffer for wet makeup application. Synthetic fibers are preferred as synthetic hairs soak up less product than natural hair. It will save you product and be easier to clean.

2) Bronzer brush

Angled brush with less packed bristles and no hard edges. The angle will give you precision when you apply your bronzer. Choose natural hair for a smooth application.

The tip should be rounded with fine natural bristles to deposit color slowly and build up, instead of a blob of color.
