The Best Brush for the Job

The Best Brush for the Job

Nothing beats that fluffy brush feeling. In fact, we’ll take your freshly washed sheets and raise you a set of perfectly cleansed makeup brushes. 


You can have a makeup collection to rival Sofia Richie’s, but if your brushes aren’t hitting the mark, it’s pretty hard to achieve the same vibe.

That’s because makeup brushes are an essential tool for creating pro MUA level looks. They work to blend and buff product into the skin, creating an airbrushed finish. 

Just think of it this way: your face is like a blank (and beautiful) canvas. The brushes you use can either make or break the application process. If the bristles are coarse and brittle, makeup just won’t sit great.

But if they’re soft, flexible, and silky? There are no limits to what you can do. 


That’s why investing in high-quality brushes is key - it’s what will help you to achieve your Insta-worthy masterpiece.

What’s more, different brushes are intended for different techniques and areas of the face, as well as product formulas. With so much choice available, choosing a staple brush set that ticks all the boxes can be tricky.
