Of course, not all makeup brushes are created equal. There are certain brushes you NEED in your beauty collection, as they’re extremely versatile, easy to use, and just downright gorgeous. Read on for the most essential makeup brushes to create breathtaking looks, and why you need them NOW!
1. KABUKI BRUSH
A makeup brush you’ll definitely need for the face essentials: setting powder, bronzer, and blush! The flat top and voluminous bristles evenly spread product across your face without looking too cakey, and also work for blending. If you’re feeling daring, you can even use the kabuki brush to blend out liquid and cream foundations!
Our Brush 35 Domed Kabuki Brush effortlessly applies product for your most radiant complexion, while our Brush 34 Angled Kabuki Brush takes it up a notch and provides angled bristles for ideal blush, contour, and highlighter placement.
2. ANGLED FACE BRUSH
We all need to know our angles! An angled fluffy brush has curved bristles to seamlessly apply contour, highlighter, blush and more. It’s especially useful when combined with a powder contour kit like our Studio Pro Shade & Define 10 Color Contour Palette! Lightly apply powder to the brush and sculpt your cheekbones, jawline, and forehead to enhance your features like a beauty goddess!

3. ANGLED LINER BRUSH
This must-have makeup brush proves that great things come in small packages! The short, slanted bristles allow for extreme precision and control when applying cream, gel, or liquid liner. Hold at an angle and get the perfect wing in just a few quick strokes! You can also dampen it and apply your favorite shadow as liner for a smooth line that’s both sweet and sultry.
The beauty of this brush is that it’s extremely versatile. In addition to creating luxe liner looks, it can also be used to fill in brows for an alluring arch! Our Studio Pro Brush 13 Angled Liner/Spooley is perfect for either brows or eyes, as it’s duel-ended with one angled liner end and a spooley end to groom brows and blend in products.
4. SMALL BLENDING BRUSH
This makeup brush is your go-to for your most gorgeous eyeshadow looks. It blends seamlessly into the crease, smooths lid color and softens lines for enchanting eye effects!
You can also multitask! A small blending brush – like our Brush V5 Vegan Blending Brush – can also be used to blend out nose contour lines, apply highlighter above brow bone, and target other small areas of the face.
5. FLAT CONCEALER BRUSH
Your new ride-or-die! One of the greatest tricks in makeup is mastering the art of blending, and this precision tool does it ALL. Blend out your concealer, foundation, cream contour and so much more for a radiant, refreshed look you won’t want to miss out on.
