Brushes & Tools

A painter is nothing without her brushes!

Except finger painters. Is that a thing? Or just a preschool activity?

I am a firm believer that makeup can be easy or difficult depending solely on the brushes and tools you use to apply it. A skilled artist can use just about anything to get the job done but when you're just starting out, good brushes will do most of the work for you. You don't want to use a brush that makes your job harder!

Some people go old school and just apply makeup with their fingers. This is okay for some foundations and concealer or if you're throwing one eyeshadow allover your whole lid, but I think brushes always give a more smooth, blended, and flawless appearance.

I always like soft bristles on my brushes but one factor to consider is the density of the bristles. In general, if you want a product to show up more pigmented on your face, you want the brush to be pretty dense. The looser the bristles are packed, the more likely it will sheer out the product. I like loose, fluffy brushes for powder, blush, and bronzer while I like dense brushes for foundation and packing on eyeshadow.

Keep in mind that it's not always the brush's fault. Sometimes the quality of the makeup product is the reason your makeup isn't coming out right. Once you find brushes and tools that work for you, you'll be able to tell whether or not it's the makeup product's fault. Whenever I try a new product, I enlist in the help of my most trustworthy brushes. For example, if I use a new foundation with a tried-and-true foundation brush and it doesn't look great, I can usually assume that the foundation is at fault. If I use a new brush with a new foundation, I won't know which one is causing the trouble.

Beauty Sponges & Other Tools

I like using beauty sponges for blending out my concealer and applying powder to the undereye as well. I'm not as big a fan of using them to blend out foundation because I like full coverage and I feel that it sheers out my foundation more than a brush does. This is mainly because sponges will absorb more product than a brush will. I've tried the Beauty Blender but I honestly enjoy the less expensive sponges even more.

For those who have never used beauty sponges, you must use them damp to get the best results. I soak it under running water for maybe 30 seconds and then squeeze out all the water so that it is damp but not soaked. This will make it expand, get softer and more bouncy, and be able to blend the product beautifully.

Cleaning Brushes and Sponges

I've tried a couple different methods of cleaning my brushes and sponges but my favorite has to be dish soap + olive oil. I've been using Seventh Generation dish soap because it has less chemicals than most brands. I pour some of it on a dish and then pour olive oil (usually in a 2:1 ratio of soap to oil but I also do 1:1 sometimes) and mix them together a little. I then wet my brushes under lukewarm water and dip them into the mixture. I usually just swirl them in the palm of my hand but they sell silicone tools like the ones pictured below that have texture to them that you can swirl the brushes on to really get in between the bristles. I've used these and they work well but I'm too lazy and usually just wash my brushes on my hand.

Brush Egg is sold by various brands. You can find it on Amazon for as little as $2

A sample size of Sigma Brush Cleaning Glove ($39 for full size)

Then, run the brush under the water again, gently squeezing out the soap. You may need to repeat the process again if the brush still looks dirty or the water isn't running clear when you squeeze it out of the bristles. When you think it's clean, gently squeeze the water out of the brush and allow it to dry (ideally overnight) on an inclined surface with the bristles facing down. If you lay the brushes flat or stand them up straight up, leftover water can drip into the handle of the brush where the bristles are glued and loosen the glue which will eventually result in the untimely death of your brush (aka the bristles will start falling out). I have a spare binder in my room that I place a paper towel on and then leave my brushes to dry on, with the bristles facing downward.

For sponges, I like to wet them a little, dip them in the mixture, and then squeeze/massage it a little before running under the water and squeezing it until all the soap and dirt comes out. You may have to repeat this a couple times.

I refer to this process as deep-cleaning, as opposed to spot-cleaning, which is where I use a spray brush cleaner to clean brushes in seconds. My all time favorite brush spot cleaner is Cinema Secrets Professional Grade Brush Cleaner. It cleans my brushes better than any spot cleaner I've tried, dries instantly, kills bacteria, and smells slightly of vanilla which I like. (Update 4/15/20: I don't know if they changed their formula, but my new one doesn't smell like vanilla anymore. It doesn't smell very good but it's not strong so I only get a whiff of it when I smell my hands after using it.)I use it when freelancing to clean my brushes quickly between clients. You can either spray your brush or pour some of the product into a little bowl and dip the brush in (just a tiny dip! This stuff is strong) and then wipe it on a towel/paper towel to remove the makeup.

For my personal brushes, I spot clean my eye brushes once a week and deep clean my face brushes once a week. You don't necessarily have to clean them this often but I would recommend it because bacteria builds up quickly in brushes and sponges. I also deep clean my eye brushes once a month. If I need to use the same brush for different colors on the same day, I might spot clean but I usually just swirl it around one of these tools pictured below. The one I got is from TJ Maxx, but the original is called the Color Switch by the brand Vera Mona. It basically takes the product off of the brush without washing it. However, it is not a substitution for cleaning as it will not kill bacteria nor will it remove stains from the brush.

Other Tools

There are also other tools to have handy in your makeup kit, like an eyelash curler and pencil sharpener. One of my favorite tools to have around is the ELF Makeup Remover Pen. It makes it easy to clean up makeup mistakes. I use it to clean up or sharpen my winged liner all the time. If you don't have this pen, you can also clean up your wing with some makeup remover on a small angled brush (also more sanitary for clients; I only use the pen on myself).

I also like having a palette and spatula handy, more so in my freelance kit than for my personal use, but either way it makes life easier. I pour out and mix foundation on it when working on a client but some foundation bottles require you to pour out the foundation without a pump or squeeze tube (L'Oreal True Match comes to mind) so having something like this makes it easier for personal use too. The spatula helps scrape product out of containers and played a vital role in converting my lipsticks into a lip palette. When I use my lipstick palette on clients, I use the spatula to scrape some onto the palette and then apply it with a lip brush. The same goes for products like gel liner where it is more sanitary to scrape some out than to keep dipping into the same container with your brush. I got mine from Amazon.

If you're still reading, congrats! I feel like I'm blabbing a bit but I'm combining a couple topics into this one post.

Let me take this opportunity to make a quick disclaimer: Brushes can be used for anything you want. I've used eyeshadow brushes for blending concealer, powder brushes for foundation, lip brushes for get the picture. Like all aspects of makeup, there are no rules!! Do what feels right for you!

I don't own many expensive brushes because I have found so many good affordable brushes. Real Techniques and Morphe are two of my favorite brands! I use a lot of Coastal Scents which are super affordable but I can tell the quality is a lot better in RT and Morphe for just a little more money.

Quick Note: If I refer to my "go-to group" I'm referring to the group of brushes that are out on my vanity and I use on a daily/weekly basis.

Now let's get into my thoughts on some brushes and sponges:

Anastasia Beverly Hills A23 Brush ($25): Part of my go-to group. It's my favorite highlighter brush! I prefer this shape and style brush instead of a fan brush for highlighting and this has been the best one I've tried.

Anastasia Beverly Hills #7 Brush ($18): Part of my go-to group for applying my eyebrow pomade. It's short and dense enough to really control the product.

Beauty Blender Original ($20): A good sponge but I honestly never use it because I like my inexpensive ones better. So save your money!

Beauty Junkees Pro Makeup Blending Sponge Set ($12.97): I got these off Amazon and they're good! The set comes with 4 sponges of different shapes so you can use them for different purposes. They all get nice and soft when damp. I found most of the shapes to be pretty useless though. The pink one was the most practical.

BH Cosmetics 36 Piece Ultimate Brush Set ($36.99): I got this when I first started out with makeup because I was all about quantity over quality. Since getting it, I only kept the thin and thick fan brushes, the big duo-fiber stippling brush, and all the small flat concealer brushes because I use them for concealer and metallic eyeshadows. I actually use 3 of the concealer brushes daily: one for my corrector, one for concealer, and the one with the short flat top for concealer around my eyebrows.

BH Cosmetics Sculpt & Blend 10 Piece Brush Set ($18.99): I did not like these brushes. Some were ok but overall, the bristles felt really plastic-y and stiff.

(Ignore the numbers)

Coastal Scents Bionic Flat Top Buffer ($6.95): This used to be my favorite foundation brush before I fell in love with the Morphe M439. I now buy this for my mom and she loves it.

Coastal Scents Classic Angled Liner Brush Natural ($1.95): Part of my go-to group. I use this for brow powder.

Coastal Scents Classic Bent Liner Brush Natural ($1.95): I like using bent liner brushes for applying gel liner on clients and occasionally on myself and this is a pretty good one.

Coastal Scents Classic Blender Crease Brush Natural ($2.24): I don't use this often but it's between a fluffy blending brush and a dense pointed brush (like the Classic Blender Pointed Natural). It's good if you have to bend the crease/outer corner and be a little more precise than the fluffier brushes allow.

Coastal Scents Classic Blender Pointed Natural ($2.95): Part of my go-to group. I use this to pack darker colors onto the outer corner of my eye if I'm doing a smokey eye.

Coastal Scents Classic Blush Angle Brush Large Natural ($4.95): Part of my go-to group. I use this for blush and love that it's fluffy enough that it doesn't put too much color in one area.

Coastal Scents Classic Blush Angle Brush Small Natural ($4.95): Part of my go-to group. It's one of the only brushes I trust for contour and I've been using it for years. I've also used it for bronzer and blush.

Coastal Scents Classic Shadow Brush Large Natural ($2.49): Part of my go-to group. I use this every day to set my eye primer with a skin-toned shadow all over from lash line to brow bone.

Coastal Scents Elite Shadow Brush Small ($2.95): Part of my go-to group. Much smaller than I thought it was going to be, so I use it for highlighting my brow bone, nose, and inner corner of my eye.

Coastal Scents Classic Smudge Sponge ($1.49): Have you ever had an eyeliner with a little sponge smudgy thing on the other end? This is that sponge on a stick. It's good if you need to smudge out eyeliner but I honestly don't do that a lot.

Coastal Scents Pro Blending Fluff Brush ($4.95): Part of my go-to group. I use it for blending colors on my outer corner and into the crease. It's slightly less fluffy than something like the Sigma E40 which I use for light transition colors in the crease. It' not my favorite blending brush but I have a bunch of them since they're cheap so I'm not afraid of overusing them. They are the same shape and size of the MAC 217 and the Morphe M433.

L to R: Coastal Scents Pro Blending Fluff (first 4), Classic Shadow Brush Large Natural, Classic Blender Crease Brush Natural, Classic Blender Pointed Natural, Classic Smudge Sponge, & Classic Bent Liner Brush Natural

L to R: Coastal Scents Bionic Flat Top Buffer, Classic Blush Angle Brush Large Natural (the 2nd and 4th brush. I put pink nail polish on one because I used one for bronzer and one for blush so that's how I told them apart) & Classic Blush Angle Brush Small Natural

*Disclaimer for all the CVS brushes: I don't know if they sell them anymore because I got them years ago. They may have similar brushes so I would assume the quality will be similar.

CVS Essence of Beauty Concealer Brush: Too dense to blend out concealer without it looking streaky. You can apply the concealer under the eye with it but then I would recommend a beauty sponge to take away the streakiness.

CVS Essence of Beauty Crease Brush: Good for applying shadow to precise areas like the outer corner but I prefer fluffier brushes for the crease (what it was labeled for). I use it for blending a lot of color in the crease for cut-crease looks because it's a little more of an intense look.

CVS Essence of Beauty Eyeshadow Brush: Good for applying eyeshadow onto the lid.

CVS Essence of Beauty Foundation Brush: A good flat brush for applying foundation. I used to use this brush all the time to apply foundation all over the face and if there was any streakiness, I'd blend it out with a beauty sponge.

Danielle Enterprises Macbeth Nauti Collection Angled Blush Brush ($7.93): Good for bronzer or blush

Danielle Enterprises Macbeth Nauti Collection Powder Brush ($11.95): Good for powder. I use it for bronzer too.

ELF Beautifully Bare Blending Brush ($6): At first I liked this a lot for contouring but then I kind of forgot how to use it so I don't really use it anymore. When it comes to contour, I want to use a brush that I can trust 100% of the time and I can't always work with this one.

ELF Contouring Brush ($6): I could never contour with such a thick, dense brush but I got this one to bake with (which I rarely ever do). I would apply a ton of powder right under my contour in order to sculpt it out even more and then wipe the powder away.

ELF Crease Brush ($3): Thinner than most of my blending brushes, so I use it when I'm trying to be more precise. Good for cut creases.

ELF Eye Crease Brush ($1): Really good for precise application of shadows. I use it both for dark colors on the outer corner and for blending out smokey shadow under the eye.

ELF Eyeshadow Brush ($1): One of my favorite brushes for applying shadow all over the lid...and it's $1!

ELF Flawless Face Brush ($6): Part of my go-to group for applying powder to my cheeks before contouring. Yes, that is a pretty specific purpose but it works as a normal powder brush or even for bronzer or blush. I just like that it's somewhat flat because I like patting powder down in that area to set my foundation before contouring.

ELF Powder Brush ($4): I actually tried this for foundation and I thought it was too flat for powder but too loose for foundation so I didn't like it.

ELF Selfie Ready Foundation Brush ($6): This brush isn't bad at blending out foundation (I don't even know if that was it's purpose) but it's not my favorite.

ELF Small Stipple Brush ($3): I didn't like this brush. I thought I would like it for cream contour but it was too small and when I tried it for cream highlight, it didn't blend the way I wanted it to. I honestly think my brush was a bad one because I've seen other people like it and it looks fuller in pictures.

ELF Small Tapered Brush ($3): Part of my go-to group. I use it to set powder under my eye if I'm not using a beauty sponge.

ELF Ultimate Blending Brush ($6): An average powder brush. You can use it for foundation too.

ELF Ultimate Kabuki Brush ($10): I honestly don't know why I bought this. I think I was going to use it for bronzing my body but I usually bronze my neck and chest with whatever bronzer brush I'm using. Ain't nobody got time to pull out a whole 'nother brush for that.

Essence Precise Eyeliner Brush ($1.99): A good small eyeliner brush. I was hoping it would be as good as my Sigma E06, but it's a little bigger and a little more flexible.

MAC 217 ($25): The blending brush to end all blending brushes. Blends so smooth and flawlessly but I would never repurchase such expensive brushes. I'll take a slight decrease in quality and get a Morphe brush (M433)

MAC 252 (discontinued?): A really great brush for applying shadow to the lid, but again, I would not repurchase for the price. I'll use my $1 ELF ones.

Morphe E4 Angled Contour ($14): A great brush for contour, blush or bronzer. It's pretty small so I prefer it for contour.

Morphe M135 Oval Shadow ($3): A good brush for sweeping shadow onto the lid. It's not too dense so it won't pack on as much pigment as more dense brushes would.

Morphe M158 Angle Liner/Spoolie ($3): I didn't like this brush. I got it for brows but it's not dense enough for me.

Morphe M160-1/16 Angle Liner ($2): I used to use this for cleaning up my wing with makeup remover. I didn't like it for winged liner.

Morphe M431 Precision Pencil Crease ($5): Part of my go-to group. It's a pencil brush that I use for blending out shadow under my lashline.

Morphe M433 Pro Firm Blending Fluff ($6): A really great fluffy eye blending brush! My current favorite.

Morphe M436 Mini Duo Blender ($7): This brush is nice for lightly blending out cream contour or cream blush.

Morphe M437 Pro Blender/Contour ($10): It's a good contour brush but not my favorite. I'm thinking of trying it out again because I'm so used to the ones I usually use.

Morphe M439 Deluxe Buffer ($14): One of my favorite foundation brushes! It blends out the foundation flawlessly but keeps it full coverage because it's nice and dense.

Morphe M441 Pro Firm Blending Crease ($6): A nice fluffy blending brush that's just a little more precise than the M505.

Morphe M501 Pro Pointed Blender ($8): A great brush for highlighting. It's tapered so it'll lay flat on the top of your cheekbone.

Morphe M505 Tapered Blender ($6): A great fluffly eye blending brush for the crease.

Morphe M508 Smudger ($4): An amazing brush! I love this for precise eyeshadow or glitter application. I use this for carving out a cut crease with concealer and then applying shadow or glitter on top.

NYX Can't Stop Won't Stop Foundation Brush ($15): My other favorite foundation brush! It's smaller and denser than the Morphe M439, so I usually just use pushing motions to push the product into my skin instead of buffing or swiping. It gives really nice coverage.

NYX Flawless Finish Blending Sponge ($8): My favorite blending sponge! They changed it a bit since I first bought it and I think the new one it better. It gets nice and soft, blends nicely and doesn't seem to absorb as much product as other sponges.

NYX Holographic Halo Micro Highlighting Brush ($14): A really nice, thin fan brush

NYX Holographic Halo Sculpting Highlighting Brush ($16): I've never found a really good use for this brush yet, but I guess I'll keep trying it for highlighting.

NYX Pro Dual Brow Brush ($10): A really great brow brush. A runner up to my favorite ABH one because this one is less dense but it still works well.

*Disclaimer about Real Techniques: They often release brush sets that they later discontinue, rename, etc. I've included all the brushes I've had from them (although some are not currently available) just in case they bring them back

Real Techniques Angled Shadow Brush (set exclusive): Bristles are a little longer and more angled compared to a regular blending brush so it works well if you like that kind of thing. I usually use something smaller though

Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush (set exclusive): Better for blending than applying. Nice and fluffy.

Real Techniques Blush Brush ($9): I actually liked this for bronzer more than I did for blush but it's pretty good for both.

Real Techniques Bold Metals 100 Arched Powder Brush ($21): Both the handle and the brush itself are beautiful but I don't know if it's quite worth the price. If you don't mind the price, it's a good powder brush. It's probably the biggest powder brush I have.

Real Techniques Bold Metals 200 Oval Shadow Brush ($13): Great for applying shadow all over the lid

Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 Pointed Crease Brush ($13): This is pretty good for applying shadow precisely, like on the outer corner but I prefer brushes like this to be a little smaller.

Real Techniques Bold Metals 203 Tapered Shadow Brush ($13): One of my favorite eyeshadow blending brushes! I got mine on sale so the price didn't phase me. Speaking on the quality alone, it does a great job blending so I'm really happy with it.

Real Techniques Bold Metals 300 Tapered Blush Brush ($19): I really didn't find a purpose for this that I loved but it sure is pretty! I also got this on sale so I'm not too bummed that I don't use it but it's not worth the price.

L to R: 203, 200, 201

L to R: 100, 300, 203

Real Techniques Buffing Brush (Flawless Base Set exclusive): A mid-sized powder brush. Small enough to bronze the face but also okay for setting the face/buffing in powder or foundation.

Real Techniques Cheek Brush (set exclusive): I use this interchangeably with my ELF Flawless Face Brush to set powder onto my cheeks. They have a paddle-like shape but are still packed with tons of bristles and the hairs are a little tapered so I always take the product on the side of the brush and apply it with the side instead of straight off the top of the brush head. I also like this for patting blush onto the apples of the cheeks.

Real Techniques Compact Fan Brush (set exclusive): This was the only Real Techniques brush I truly did not like and could not find a good use for.

Real Techniques Contour Brush (Flawless Base Set exclusive): Pretty good for contouring because it's the perfect size to fit under the cheekbone but it's a little denser than some of the other brushes I'm used to using for contour. Contour brushes always come down to personal preference.

Real Techniques Detailer Brush (Flawless Base Set exclusive): Good for small detailing like highlighting the inner corner of the eye or even as a lip brush. I hardly use it though.

Real Techniques Domed Shadow Brush (set exclusive): I don't love this for eyeshadow but I actually love it for blending out concealer and use it on clients because I don't use beauty sponges on clients.

Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Contour Brush (set exclusive): Ok for contouring, but not my favorite.

Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Face Brush (set exclusive): A large, very fluffy duo-fiber brush. I don't really use it but you can apply powder or bronzer with it.

Real Techniques Essentail Foundation Brush (set exclusive): A pretty basic flat foundation brush

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush ($9): Nice and dense so it's good for blending out foundation.

Real Techniques Eyeliner Brush (set exclusive): A pretty short, stiff angled brush for eyeliner or brows. I don't use it for eyeliner unless applying shadow under my lash line. I prefer it for brows.

Real Techniques Fan Brush (exclusive to the Sculpting Set): I wasn't a fan of this fan brush (no pun intended. I regretted it once I typed it). I don't usually like a fan brush for highlighting but I've tried better ones than this

L to R: Sculpting brush, Fan brush, Setting brush

Real Techniques Lip Brush (set exclusive, similar to retractable for $6): A basic lip brush that gets the job done. I use lip brushes more on clients than on myself. They can help if you are applying liquid lipsticks and want to be more precise than the applicator allows or if you want to blend lipsticks together on the lips, especially for an ombre look.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge ($6): This was my favorite for a long time! Such a soft, bouncy sponge that blends out product really well. You can tell I use my sponges until they are beaten up.

New vs. Well-loved

Real Techniques Miracle Diamond Sponge ($10): Honestly, this is just beautiful. I love the marble pattern and that makes me not want to use it so that it stays clean and beautiful. It does blend well but it's not my most-used sponge.

Real Techniques Miracle Mini Eraser Sponge ($6 for 2): Good at blending but not totally necessary. I just tend to use my regular size sponges.

Real Techniques Multitask Brush (set exclusive): A really great brush that you can use to set powder or apply blush or bronzer. You can even apply foundation with it. Truly a multitasking brush!

Real Techniques Pointed Foundation Brush (set exclusive): I think this was discontinued but I got it in the original Flawless Base Set. It was a flat foundation brush with a very pointed tip but it was pretty small and thin so I didn't love it.

Real Techniques Powder Brush ($10): This was my go-to powder brush when I used to set my whole face because it's soft and fluffy.

Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush ($13): Super soft and pretty good for bronzer. Not my favorite but good if you need the retractable feature for travel.

Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush ($10): I didn't love this brush because it was very wide but I guess you can bronze and blush with it if you need a travel/retractable brush.

Real Techniques Setting Brush ($8): One of the best setting brushes ever! I love it for setting powder under my eye. You can also highlight your cheekbones with it.

Real Techniques Sculpting Brush ($10): My favorite for cream contour! I can't cream contour by applying the cream to my face and then blending it out, so I take the product right on this brush and press it into my face and then lightly blend it.

Real Techniques Stippling Brush ($10): Really good for blending out cream blush. I don't really use it for anything else. It's the stiffest duo-fiber brush I've tried which may sound like a bad thing but it's still super soft and I like that about it.

Real Techniques Targeted Blending Brush (set exclusive): A medium-sized, dense brush that I use to blend out concealer, specifically when I am using the concealer to highlight larger areas of the face instead of just under the eye. It is a little large for getting right up under the eye.

Sephora Dual Ended Smudge/Shadow Brush (discontinued?): I don't know if they make this anymore but it applies shadow really well so I'm sure they have similar brushes to this.

Sigma E06 Winged Liner ($15): The best brush for winged liner! It's the tiniest I've ever found and I love it when I use gel liner. I used to use gel liner often so I used this all the time.

Sigma E15 Flat Definer ($15): Part of my go-to group. Great for applying eyeshadow underneath the lash line. I like this kind of brush to be pretty stiff and this one is.

Sigma E30 Pencil ($15): A decent pencil brush but it's a little too stiff for me. Since I use this to blend back and forth a lot under the eye, it's a little rough for that delicate skin.

Sigma E55 Eye Shading ($16): Good for applying color to the lid. It's a little thick compared to what I usually use but it's still pretty good.

Sigma Make Me Classy Travel Kit ($86): Includes the E30 Pencil brush, E40 Tapered Blending brush, E55 Eye Shading brush, E65 Small Angle brush, F30 Large Powder brush,F40 Large Angled Contour, and F60 Foundation brush. I got this on sale, but if you're looking for some good quality brushes, this is actually a pretty average price. I loveeeeed the E40 for blending transition colors in the crease of my eye. The other eye brushes are good too but I honestly don't use the face ones that much. It's not that they're not good, I'm just stuck on my brushes that I use daily. Also, it comes with a brush cup.

Comparison of regular-sized brush handle (left) vs Travel brushes

Target Up & Up Complexion Brush ($6.99): A good, dense foundation brush. This was a runner up to my Morphe brush but I guess I was too rough when washing it because it fell apart over time.

Urban Studio Flawless Blend Velvet Touch Oval Brush Set ($19.99): I've never tried the original Artis brushes because they're so expensive but these work pretty well. Since they're so dense, they help keep foundation full coverage. I really like the biggest one the best. I don't like using this type of brush for concealer so I don't use the small one.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Contour Face Make-Up Brush Set (found at TJ Maxx): These were good but nothing extraordinary. If you see them at TJ Maxx, they'll be super affordable so you can give them a shot.

Wet n Wild Blush Brush ($2.99): A soft fluffy brush with a nice size and shape for applying blush right to the apples of the cheeks.

Wet n Wild Contour Brush ($1.99): A good contour brush. Small enough to be precise and soft to blend out.

Wet n Wild Crease Brush ($0.99): A nice fluffy blending brush for eyeshadow. Not my favorite but for $1 it's pretty darn good!

Wet n Wild Flat Top Brush ($2.99): A nice, soft flat top brush. This is the style brush I used to love for foundation but I prefer something a little denser than this now.

Wet n Wild Kabuki Brush ($3.99): A super soft brush for powders. I don't use powder brushes a lot but it applies nicely, just not the best I've tried.

Wet n Wild Large Eyeshadow Brush ($0.99): I got this for putting eyeshadow all over the lid as a base. It's a little stiffer than I'd like, but it's not bad.

Wet n Wild Large Stipple Brush ($2.99): This can be used for creams or powders. It's not dense enough for me to like using it with creams or liquids but I sometimes use this style brush for bronzer (not contour).

Wet n Wild Small Eyeshadow Brush ($0.99): Similar to the large eyeshadow brush, a little stiffer than I usually prefer but not bad.
