Brush Basics

A lot of people don't realize just how important brushes are to your makeup collection. Sure, it's more fun to buy real makeup, but your brush collection really does make a difference to your makeup and its application. Now, this doesn't mean that you have to rush out and buy super expensive brushes... who can actually afford that? High quality brushes are definitely an investment that is worth the money, but a good brush collection takes a LONG time to build (because they're so expensive). I'd recommend starting out by buying cheaper brushes (Quo does some great, affordable brushes at Shopper's Drug Mart and Target in the States has some amazing Sonia Kashuk brushes) and then for every occasion like your birthday or Christmas, just treat yourself to one new brush
Here's 5 makeup brushes that I think are great starter brushes for every makeup junkie.


One fluffy powder brush (MAC 150) for dusting loose or pressed powder on your face.

One blush brush (MAC 116) (that can be used for both bronzer and blush)


One flat eyeshadow shader brush (MAC 242) for application of eyeshadow all over your lid

One tapered blending brush (MAC 217) for applying eyeshadow in your crease and for blending

One angled eyeliner brush (MAC 263) for applying eyeliner
