Bare Basics When It Comes To Base Brushes

When it comes to make-up brushes there are a lot on the market. Buffing brushes, stippling brushes...If you're a beginner in make-up then how are you meant to understand what is what? It's impossible! Therefore, I've crunched it down to the bare basics that you will need to complete a full base of make-up.

Foundation Zoeva 104 Buffing Brush £15
You know you love a brush when you have two of them in different styles. This brush is my favourite for applying liquid foundation as the brush doesn't absorb the foundation; it buffs it evenly across your face due to the flat top of the brush. As it has extremely soft, vegan bristles this allows you to get a smooth application leaving you with a flawless base of foundation.

Concealer Morphe Contouring Brush Kit £18.25
When it comes to concealer I always loved using a sponge until I use this contouring brush from Morphe. Due to its dense tapered kabuki bristles, this allows you to get precision like blending underneath the eyes as it's the perfect shape.

Powder Real Techniques Bold Metals 100 Arched Powder Brush £25
Bold metals are my favourite collection by Real Techniques as their beautiful design leaves you breathless, especially their power and blush brush. Their powder brush has the perfect amount of bristles to seamlessly apply a layer of powder onto the face without making your face appear caked, leaving you with a natural look.
Bronzer Real Techniques Blusher Brush £9.99
This brush was made in intention of applying blush to the cheeks however, I've found that it's ideal for applying bronzer to the surface of your face. It is slightly tapered which means it fits wonderfully just below the cheek bones allowing you to be the bronzed goddess you always wanted to be.

Blusher Real Techniques Bold Metals 300 Tapered Blush Brush £24
The small, dense yet tapered area of this blush brush is what makes it so perfect for applying blush onto the apples of your cheeks. Due to the tapered shape, the bristles allow you to get the ideal distribution of blush delicately dabbed onto your cheeks without leaving you with a harsh blob or streak. No-one wants to look like a clown!

Highlight Ebay Fan Brush £9.99
Although I got this fan brush off a kit on Ebay, it's definitely worth purchasing just for this brush alone! It's possibly one of the softest brushes I have ever felt whilst its beautiful, pink design doesn't go amiss. The bristles on this brush allow you to get wonderful results when applying highlight onto the cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose as it isn't too small nor too large for your face. 

These brushes are my go to in any circumstances as they're the best brushes which I've found to do the job. What are your holy grail base brushes? Thanks for reading, you can find me here:
