On every set, makeup artists come armed with cosmetic tools and brushes. Makeup brushes are essential to applying makeup as well as helping with precision, blending, and accuracy. Always use good quality makeup brushes and avoid grabbing any old thing lying in the drawer. Investing in good brushes will not only change the way makeup can look on you, but a higher grade brush can last up to ten years, if taken care of properly.
There are different types of brushes for different makeup applications, as well as different hair bristle types and levels of quality. The best quality brushes use natural hair because the bristles are soft and can absorb makeup. This is ideal for blushes, eye shadows, and powders. Synthetic hair is non-absorbent which can be suitable for foundations and concealers.
