Updated: Feb 28
Every makeup artist needs a variety of face brushes in their kit. The best brushes last from10 years up to a lifetime when taken care of properly and most good quality brushes do not have to be expensive. Here is a list of must have face brushes for any MUA:
Large Powder Brush
This brush is mainly used to dust loose powder on to various parts of the face and body and can also be used to dust off any excess shadow or powder. You can apply blush, bronzer and so much more with powder brushes. These brushes are extremely versatile and are a must have for any kit.
A blush brush holds similarities to the powder brush only the shape is smaller. This allows you to apply blush in targeted areas all while helping you blend for a seamless application!
Angled Contour Brush
Angled contour brushes are a must have. They allow you to chisel out certain areas of the face, using bronzer to create the illusion of contour. The angle of the brush will help you target certain areas that larger fluffy brushes typically can't get into.
Flat Foundation Brush
Although the flat foundation brush isn't as popular these days, this type of brush is great for liquid foundations. It helps lay foundation on areas of the face without your foundation looking cakey or separated.
This is a smaller version of the flat foundation brush. This brush has a variation of sizes and is used for different areas of the face such as under the eye, crease of the nose and for spot concealing.
Duo Fiber Stippling Brush
These brushes are a must have! They work great for stippling on liquid and cream products such as cream blushes, bronzers, highlighters and foundations. They're also perfect for achieving a more natural look to the skin.
These brushes are a great multi-purpose tool to have in your kit. Not only do they apply highlighter perfectly to the cheek bones, you can also use them for light contouring. The shape of the brush fits perfectly into the hallow of the cheeks, and allows for seamless blending!
