Top 3 Essential Makeup Brushes

I decided to write a post on makeup brushes because if you or someone you know is just getting into makeup, the world of makeup brushes can be quite daunting.  There are just so many!  How do you even know which one is for what?!  It took me lots of time to learn which brush was for which product, but I have narrowed it down to three main brushes that can be used for a full face of makeup.

Brushes are expensive, but if you play it right, you only need to invest in a few to have your makeup looking flawless.  Here are my top 3:

1. MAC 190 Foundation Brush- this brush is great for applying your primers and foundations.  It provides even coverage, while blending the product into the skin beautifully.  While it is on the larger side, you can also use the MAC 190 brush to apply concealer to larger areas, like cheeks and chin.  Use your fingers to apply concealer to your under eye area- they work just as well as a brush, plus the natural heat from the skin will melt the concealer, making it easier to work with.  You can by the 190 brush here.

2. MAC 150 Large Powder Brush- this large soft powder brush can be used to apply powder to set your foundation.  It can also be used to apply bronzers, blushes, and highlighters.  This brush really does it all!  You can buy it here.

3. MAC 217 Blending Brush- while the name does say blending, this brush can also be used to apply shadows to the lid.  Once shadows are applied, clean the brush and you can re-use as a blending brush to soften the edges.  You can buy it here.
