Base

A flawless canvas and a great lip colour are the foundations of any makeup look. Choose from synthetic brushes or sponges for liquid and cream products, and natural bristles for powders.

Concealer: A synthetic concealer brush blends without compromising on coverage.

Liquid Foundation: Synthetic foundation brushes give you the most coverage. Beautyblenders are great for a more natural finish and at making thick foundations less cakey. Kabuki brushes provide lighter coverage.

Mineral Powder Foundation: Use a natural-bristled kabuki brush for quick and easy application.

Lips

Even if your natural lip line isn’t smooth or precisely contoured, a lip liner can create the illusion of an ideal lip shape. Layering a lipstick over lip liner will keep it in place longer and makes your lipstick application fuss-free. If your lipstick is the wrong shape for a precise application, try a lip brush to ensure your favourite lip shade stays within the lines.

Blush

Bring life and warmth to your face with a pop of colour. Take your pick from synthetic stippling brushes for creams, or angled fluffy cheek brushes for powders.

Cream Blush: Highly pigmented, yet blendable colour with a natural finish.

Powder Blush: Buildable and matte on the cheeks.

Liquid Blush: Lightweight, sheer and dewy on the skin.

Cream Blush: Highly pigmented, yet blendable colour with a natural finish.

Powder Blush: Buildable and matte on the cheeks.

Liquid Blush: Lightweight, sheer and dewy on the skin.

Contour

Play up the shadows of your face for some well-sculpted definition. Contours should be more neutral or cool-toned to mimic shadows. Blend creams with a synthetic stippling brush, and powders with natural-bristled angled blush brushes.

Cream Contour: Synthetic brushes keep things dewy and natural.

Powder Contour: Stay matte and build it up with a natural-haired brush.

Highlight

Fan brushes are perfect for a more subtle and buildable application, but a small, fluffy, tapered brush is great for packing on colour.

Cream/Liquid Highlighter: Apply with synthetic tapered brushes for a more skin-like finish.

Powder Highlighter: Build up that glow with a natural bristled fan brush.

Eyes

Achieving a smoked-out eyeshadow look is easier than you think.

All-Over Shadow Brushes: A larger, flat, tapered eye brush helps deposit a quick wash of colour all over your lids.

Crease Brushes: Precision requires slim and round tapered brushes. Tapered crease brushes let you apply your shadows more precisely to emphasise your crease.

Blending Brushes: Something small, yet fluffy enough to buff away harsh lines. Keep things looking seamless and blended with fluffy blender brushes. When in doubt, blend more.

Eye Detail Brushes: Skinny liner brushes and slim angled brushes give you a sharp wing, while small flat brushes are perfect for tightlining.
