Get clear on the quantity of brushes you need. The benefits of saving time and money per brush because of purchasing in multiples, can seem like a great idea.... and it is, provided you are going to use all or most of what you buy.

apple tip grpahic2 Do A Little Homework...

Determine what makeup tasks you want to be able to do and what type of brushes can do them. If they are fairly common tasks, you will find them in a set. Makeup brush sets come in all sorts of sizes and serve a variety of individuals from the minimalist to the makeup maven.

Choose Versatile Brushes

Some brushes can perform double, even triple duty i.e. the medium head eye shadow brush;

-its flats side can place eye shadow effectively on the eyelid
-its narrow end, can work the crease
-the tip can place highlight work on brow bone
-PLUS do the medium size can effectively blend the whole zone

-SOMETIMES they are actually double ended!

Here is a minimal set that will cover the basics of makeup.


  • Face/Large Powder Brush-use for  setting foundation, dusting away shine, helping makeup stay in place and last
  • Blush/ Bronzer Brush- powder application of blush, bronzer, shimmer
  • Medium Head Eye Shadow Brush-application lid, crease and brow bone plus blending
  • Angled or Flat Head Eye Liner Brush-perform finer lash line work
  • Concealer Brush- eye zone and blemishes

Other application tools like sponges, fingers, Q Tips and eyelash curler, will help fill out the basic brush set.
