3 You Need: Makeup Brushes


I've kicked off my "3 You Need" series with the most basic of tools for anyone applying makeup: brushes. Makeup is art, and having the proper brushes will make it simpler to have a natural base and clean, blended lines while making the actual application pleasant. Good brushes also prevent waste of products.

The three brushes I mention are a foundation/buffing brush, a shadow blending brush, and a stippling brush. With just those three, you can put on your foundation, powder, blush and shadow. Of course, you can buy a ton of brushes for every advanced technique (trust me, I have far too many) but if you're just getting ready for work or school, these will see you through.
