STYLE: Makeup Brushes 101 (The Basics)

In my opinion, makeup brushes are possibly the most boring makeup purchase there is. I was always hesitant to invest money on tools- where's the fun in that? 

But guys, an investment is exactly what it is. Now I'm not saying you need to go out and spend  $50 on a single brush (have you seen some of the prices out there?) but there are some brushes where it does pay off to not cheap out. 

Generally speaking, anything used on your whole face I prefer to splurge on price. Think about it- it's your whole face. To contrast, smaller tools, like for your eyes, there's no need to spend a lot of money.

Here are my picks for the basics- tools everyone needs in their arsenal:
Kabuki  (powder foundation, setting powder)
Beauty Blender  (liquid foundation, luminizer)
Fan brush  (highlighter)
Fluffy eyeshadow (all over base color blending)
Smudge (eyeliner, smoky eye)
Angled eyeshadow (crease, smoky eye)
Blush, concealer, liner, lashes

And don't forget...Q-tips and your fingertips work great too!
