Beginners Guide to Makeup Brushes

Have you just started out on your makeup journey? If you have you will quickly realise that the brushes you use are everything. You can use the best makeup but if you are not applying it with the proper brushes, it will not work its magic as effectively as it could.

It can be tricky to know what brushes are the right ones, especially when there are so many brushes out there. So how do you make sure you spend your money wisely and get the right brushes?

We have put together a few brushes we think you need when you are starting out on your makeup journey. 

MAKEUP SPONGE

Maybe not officially a brush but this TDB P:Teardrop Foundation Blending Sponge can come in so handy in your makeup kit. You can use a makeup sponge for foundation, setting powder, applying contour cream and it works like a dream for blending. This sponge is not really a luxury but a necessity in your kit. Just remember to clean it properly after you use it.

SETTING BRUSH

A setting brush is a must have brush and a great one to use for this is the SS02: Large Foundation Brush.  It works well as a setting brush because it is dense so it will pick up the right amount of powder, helping you avoid putting on too much makeup.
