Essential Makeup Brushes

The 7 Makeup Brushes Every Woman Needs



YouTube star and beauty guru Michelle Phan always has a new tip or two for making life easier. This week, Michelle tells us how we can start building a makeup brush collection:

Hi everyone,

You may not think about your makeup brushes as often as you do the type of foundation or color eye shadow that you use, but that doesn't mean that your brush collection isn't every bit as important to your makeup collection as the individual products that you swear by! Your brushes are an essential part of your makeup collection . . . you can have all the best cosmetics in the world, but without brushes, your application and finished look will suffer.

Can a veggie reduce under-eye bags?

A lot of times people aren't sure what kind of brushes they should buy. If you have a relatively small makeup collection, are on a tight budget, or don't have any makeup brushes to begin with, it can be confusing. I thought we could focus on these necessary tools — from how to maximize your brush budget as a whole to the detailed descriptions of each individual brush! Check out my brush necessities now.

To start things off, today I'm sharing what I think are the absolute essential makeup brushes that a girl should own. Here are the seven you should make sure you have in your collection:

  1. A foundation brush
  2. Powder brush
  3. Blush brush
  4. Eye shadow brush
  5. Fluffy brush
  6. Liner brush
  7. Small eye shadow brush

I don't think a foundation brush is something every lady NEEDS to have...Unless you are experienced it often leaves streaks on the face. Also a liner brush is a personal preference. I think the others are staples though :)
