Makeup blending: It’s a skill that’s an integral part of your makeup routine. No matter how pigmented your products, how well matched your foundation is to your skin tone, if the application is flawed it can all go wrong real quick.
We’ve all tried sponges that soak up our expensive formulas, and using one’s fingertips is time consuming and messy. Makeup is an art form, so it only makes sense that the best way to apply with precision and blend to perfection is with a brush.
Rather than stare down the brush section at the beauty counter with awe and more than a little confusion, we’ve found the best makeup brush sets for covering your makeup needs and developing your skills.
