Have you ever found yourself buying a set of fancy makeup brushes only to go home thinking, "Uhm, what do I do with the 10,000 others in this set?" Stop guessing, and scroll down below to see our handy brush guide so you'll never be clueless again.

Powder Brush
The fluffiest of all, this one is made for loose powder and powder foundation application.

Foundation Brush
The flexible and tapered bristles make it the best tool for painting on foundation even on the hard-to-reach areas of the face.

Pencil brush
You can use this for precise concealer application. Also, this brush is great for adding eye shadow on the outer corners of the eye for intensity. Not sure how to apply eye shadow? Check out our Makeup Masterclass tutorial here!

Blush Brush
As the name suggests, this is made to use for powder blushes. It is a bit smaller than the powder brush—just enough to cover your cheeks.

Angled Blush Brush
This brush can give you sculpted cheekbones; it’s the ideal brush to use for contouring and highlighting.

Eye Shadow Brush
It's the most basic brush for depositing eye shadow on the lids

Tapered Eye Shadow Brush
It’s excellent for blending harsh edges into your eye makeup.

Angled Liner Brush
Use it for gel liner or brow powders. The fine, dense angled bristles grant a smooth line for your brows and winged liners.

Lip Brush
For accurately painted pouts, you need a lip brush to emphasize your cupid’s bows and to avoid overdrawn lips.
