The Ultimate Brush Guide

Not all make-up brushes are created equal. They have different purposes and will give you different results. Unsure which is which? Then check out this guide!

A foundation brush is used to apply foundation. Our Precision Foundation Brush has a flat, curved bristle shape that allows for highly controlled, quick and even application of a range of foundation formulas, including liquid and cream.

Pro tip: Start your foundation application at the centre of your face and blend out towards the hairline and neck. This will help you avoid foundation built-up around the edge of the face.

A powder brush is used to apply any kind of powder (like a setting or bronzing powder). Our Precision Powder Brush lifts powder with ease and ensures perfectly even application and a light, smooth finish. Works wonders with loose and pressed powders.

Pro tip: Apply your powder with even, circular movements for an even more flawless result.

A concealer brush is used for precise application of concealer. Our Precision Concealer Brush has a thin, tapered top that perfectly conceals dark circles and the area around your eyes and nose.

Pro tip: Get perfect cover by gently tapping the concealer onto the skin and then feathering the edges until blended.

A fan brush is most commonly used to apply highlighter, blush or bronzer. Our Precision Fan Powder Brush has flat, fan-shaped bristles that’ll always give you a naturally flawless result.

Pro tip: A fan brush is also a great tool for brushing excess powder off your face.

A blush brush is used to apply blusher. Our Precision Angled Blush Brush has slanted bristles that lift powder with ease and give you an even, natural application. This is a great brush for blending and contouring the cheeks to achieve a more defined, sculpted look.

Pro tip: Smile to accentuate the apples of your cheeks, and simply dab your blush on the centre of the cheeks. Then you can gently blend the blusher with circular movements upwards at an angle toward your ears.
