The Hands-Down Best Makeup Brushes For Your Beauty Routine

June 10, 2008 by SheFindsShana

The world of face brushes is mind boggling. So how do you know which one (or two, or three) would suit you best?

I’ve found that the easiest thing is to shop for specific application needs. Is it for mineral foundation? A kabuki will fulfill that need (and it’s one of Oprah’s favorite summer things). Powder? Look for something big and fluffy.

Still not sure? Consider this the ultimate shopping list cheat sheet:

 

For mineral foundation, try Everyday Minerals’s Long-Handled Kabuki ($10). This soft, synthetic brush features densely packed bristles and a longer-than-average handle, which gives you more control over makeup application.

For an all-purpose, do-anything powder brush, check out Eyes Lips Face (E.L.F.)’s Professional Total Face Brush ($1). I’m skeptical of anything labeled “ergonomic,” but the handle of this brush, which was designed by makeup artist Scott Vincent Borba, fits perfectly into the palm of my hand.

Bright blushes go on best with M.A.C.’s Duo Fibre Face brush #187 ($42). Check out the bristles – the white ones pick up the product, ensuring that your cheeks will get a pop of color without making you look like Bozo the Clown’s younger, hotter sister.

And finally, cheekbones get contoured and highlighters get applied evenly with BECCA’s Fan Brush ($39). I’m not normally a fan of BECCA brushes – I find them stiff and unyielding – but this brush retains its evenness, making itself an indispensable contouring and finishing tool. Products get blended in just enough to give your face its desired shape.
