Keep at least one short bristled shadow brush for applying to all areas of the eye, such as the brow bone, lid and crease.



Angled shadow brush:

This brush should have a 45 degree angle and contain compact bristles. Can be used for filling in brows as well as laying eyeliner to both the top and bottom lash line.



Blush brush:

The bristles should be loose and fluffy, but on a much smaller scale than the powder brush, for greater control .



Lip brush:

There are varying opinions to using lip brushes, however they will help to reduce lip product waste as well as control where to apply lipstick. Try using a slightly bigger brush, like a small eye shadow brush, as opposed to a tapered, thinner lip brush, to cover more surface area and blend easier .

Eyebrow shaping brush:

Not only used for grooming brows into place, most of these brushes are double sided. The other side is for combing out lashes after mascara application, to reduce clumps.
