How to use makeup brushes for beginners

Since I’ve first started using makeup, I’ve always applied products with whatever applicator came with it. For example, I use the sponges that come with my foundation, and mini brushes that come with my eye shadows. Which when you think about it, isn’t really hygienic. But the beauty world is constantly changing and growing, and one concept that has definitely changed is makeup brushes. The great thing about using makeup brushes is the quality of your application is drastic. I can admit I was very intimidated to make the switch from simple application tools, to hi-quality brushes. A lot of people don’t make the switch because of the price difference. But purchasing high quality brushes are the best investment you can make. And you will see the difference in your application of makeup, and you’ll feel better knowing that your tools are more hygienic.

For those of you that are beginners to the world of makeup brushes it can be complicated, when you look online or go into a store there are dozens of different brushes, with different uses and it can get confusing in the sense of which brush to use. Below I’ve listed the 5 Key Brushes that you need when applying makeup:
