Choosing The Right Brush
Brushes come in an array of sizes, shapes, and fibers. Although it is often overlooked, the brush's fiber is actually quite important. The three most common fiber variations are synthetic, natural, and a combination of the two. Synthetic brushes pick up and deposit product, allowing for a heavier application. Natural bristles, which are more porous, lend themselves to a lighter application because they hold some of the product within their bristles.
Bronzer, Blush, & Contouring
Your bronzer, blush, and contour brush should be able to apply your makeup with precision. I love the Cheek & Contour Brush from Lancôme, because you can use the small, flat side to stamp out your cheekbones and precisely shape your nose. The opposite side is perfect for blush — round and flat to rouge up your cheeks!
