Hi everyone,

You may not think about your makeup brushes as often as you do the type of foundation or color eyeshadow that you use, but that doesn’t mean that your brush collection isn’t every bit as important to your makeup collection as the individual products that you swear by! Your brushes are an essential part of your makeup collection…you can have all the best cosmetics in the world, but without brushes, your application and finished look will suffer.

A lot of times people aren’t sure what kind of brushes they should buy. If you have a relatively small makeup collection, are on a tight budget, or don’t have any makeup brushes to begin with, it can be confusing. So over a few Beauty School posts, I thought we could focus on these necessary tools – from how to maximize your brush budget as a whole to the detailed descriptions of each individual brush!

To start things off, today I’m sharing what I think are the absolute essential makeup brushes that a girl should own. Here are the seven you should make sure you have in your collection:

  1. A foundation brush
  2. Powder brush
  3. Blush brush
  4. Eyeshadow brush
  5. Fluffy brush
  6. Liner brush
  7. Small eyeshadow brush

Do you agree with my list? What other brush-related questions do you have? Let me know by leaving a comment below!

    Hi Michelle!
    I was wondering what brand your fluffy contour brush is that you used in your “How to wear a dark lip” video? Also I’m dying to know what brushes you use cause I’ve been looking for some but there are so many brands/brushes that i don’t know where to start! If you could make a video showing your fans which brushes you use it’d be super helpful! Thanks!

    PS: I love your makeup line! :)
