The world of makeup brushes can be a confusing and bewildering place, with so many different types of makeup brushes available – and more seem to be arriving all the time! HQhair are here to help you navigate this bristle-y mystery and find the top 10 essential brushes you need in your makeup kit.
First things first, everyone needs a good foundation brush. Look to the Pixi Full Cover Foundation Brush with its densely packed synthetic bristles to apply your foundation smoothly and evenly. Expect professional results and a flawless finish with no visible brush strokes. However if you like your foundation on the lighter side, why not try a makeup sponge like the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. Use it wet or dry and build up the coverage as much as you want, the contours of the brush make it really easy to get into those nooks and crannies around the nose and under your eyes. Applying foundation doesn’t get much easier than this.
