With so many makeup tools available on the market, shopping for brushes can seem intimidating! Don’t be daunted, however — makeup brushes may come in a plethora of shapes and sizes, but unless you’re a professional makeup artist, you’re not going to need more than a few brushes for your vanity and your on-the-go makeup kit.
So what kind of makeup brushes do you actually need for daily use?
Here are the top 3 makeup brushes you absolutely need to have in your kit!
First up — the fluffy Powder Brush! Its long bristles and fluffy head are ideal for distributing powder formulas onto the skin. The fluffier the brush, the better! Powders tend to cake when you apply too much; having a brush with a large fluffy head means you can easily tap off excess product and apply just enough to set your look.

FLAT TOP KABUKI BRUSH
The versatile flat top Kabuki brush is great for buffing powder, liquid, and cream foundations onto the skin. Densely-packed brushes like this pick up product well without trapping too much in the center, so you don’t end up using more than you need. The distinctive brush shape makes this makeup tool perfect for stippling as well as buffing your way to a smooth, well-blended foundation finish.
Bonus: The Kabuki brush can also be used to blend out a more natural contour!

DUAL-ENDED RETRACTABLE BRUSH
For people on the go, a dual-ended retractable brush with a concealer and powder head is the perfect makeup kit addition. The concealer brush can be used for precision application of liquid, cream, or powder formulas, while the powder head can be used wide to achieve a natural finish, or compact for fuller coverage.
