Eyeshadow: For eyeshadow, I recommend choosing a soft, short-haired brush with dense bristles. Half-moon shapes are my favorite because they are multi-purpose – you can use them for full coverage or just on the crease of your eye.

Foundation: To apply liquid foundation, opt for a flat brush with synthetic bristles and a contoured tip. The bristles will prevent excess pigment and allow you to apply the foundation smoothly for flawless looking skin.

Blush: I recommend a long-handled, round fluffy brush for the best blush application. Soft bristles in a dome shape will pick up just the right amount of blush to sweep on the apples of your cheeks.

Bronzer: Pick a medium-sized, rounded brush with dense bristles. The rounded shape moves effortlessly along the cheekbone and jawline for easy application and blending.
