Which brushes to use for makeup application ?

There are many who buy makeup brushes and do not know which makeup brush is used for what. Thats totally understandable as not everyone is a makeup artist. Alot of the times they just know the basics such as foundation brush, blusher and powder brush, and use their fingers to complete their application too.

Social media has made it more accessible to knowing which brushes to use for which application, as we watch influencers and makeup artists on how they apply their makeup for different occassions.

There is no right or wrong way to use brush tools. What matters is the results in how your makeup looks afterwards.
