For the minimalist day-look, the first 3 makeup brush recommendations will be your everything!

For the minimalist explorer wanting to go from day to glam and beyond all 9 brushes have the ability to take you there.

Foundation Brush Options: What to Look For

You want a dense brush that is wide enough to cover more area quickly. This saves you time and effort when building up coverage. One versatile brush can work for primer, foundation, and concealer. It's not only time-saving but also space-saving!

Pro Tip: Concealer Application

Swatch your concealer below your orbital bone. Pat and press the product up towards your lower lash line. This technique ensures a flawless blend and excessive product buildup.

Powder Brush Versatility: One Brush for All

A tapered or dome-shaped brush can handle all your powder needs. Use it for setting powder, bronzer, blush, and highlight.

Let your Brush Guide the Way

Use the side of the brush to pick up highlighter. Hover the side of the brush onto the high points of your cheeks for a natural glow.

Eye Makeup Essential Brushes

Must-Have: Double-Ended Eyeshadow Brush

If you want just one eye makeup brush, go for a double-ended eyeshadow brush. One side should be fluffy for blending, with the other side being a flat top brush for definition, packing on depth and heightening shimmer and glitter glow. The flat top brush caters from your eyelid to your lower lash line. We highly recommend Stila #30 for your minimalistic collection.

Angled Brush Versatility

An angled brush is multi-functional. Use it for brow pomade or powder, smoky liner, winged liner looks, to creating lower lash line definition.

Pro Tip: Lower Lash Line Definition

Use a stamping motion from the outer corner of your lower lash line inwards for effortless definition.

Lip Brush as a Multi-Tasker

A lip brush is excellent for an inner corner shimmer eyeshadow pop. It can also highlight your Cupid’s bow and brow bone.

Precision with Bullet or Precision Brush

A detailed bullet or precision brush is perfect for adding depth and darkness, ideal for full glam looks.

Smoky Liner with a Push and Wiggle Brush

A push and wiggle brush is excellent for lower lash line definition and for creating an effortless smoky liner look.

Precise Liner Brush

A precise liner brush is versatile. Use it for winged liner, tight line area, fox liner, crisp lip looks, or even freckles. The possibilities are endless.
