My 8 Must-Have Makeup Brushes

Hello friends, I hope everyone is having a good week so far and I also hope you had a good weekend. In my last post I mentioned that a wedding fair was going to be held in Enugu (click here if you missed it). On Sunday, the wedding show runway was held and before the event started, I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Beverly Osu from Big Brother Africa the Chase on her look to the event. She was super nice, easy going and I had such a good time working with her.

So onto the topic of the day….Today I’ll share with you the 8 makeup brushes I cannot do without on a job. I have dozens and dozens of makeup brushes but without these brushes, its going to be a challenge to get any work done.


This is a big fluffy brush used to apply powder all over your face to set the makeup. Right now, I use the Elf kabuki brush


This is a medium sized brush that is not too large used to sweep some blush on the cheeks for some flush of colour after all makeup has been applied. This brush can be used to apply both cream and powder foundations. Right now, I use the Real Techniques blush brush.

This is a medium sized makeup brush that is used to apply liquid, cream and powder foundations to the face. Using a foundation brush to apply foundation helps to give the face a more seamless and finished look. There are different kinds and shapes of foundation brushes, right now I use the Real Techniques Buffing Brush. Click here for my post on proper foundation appication


This has got to be my favorite brush! This brush is perfect for applying eye colour to the crease and blending out harsh eye shadow lines. You can’t have perfectly applied eye shadow without a blending brush. Right now, I use the Royal & Langnickel c430 and the Sigma blending brush.


I can’t do eyebrows without my spoolie, this is a very essential tool for brows. The spoolie is used to brush eyebrows and it also helps to remove excess products from the brows and soften the brow.


This is a thin, pointy brush that I use for precise eye lining. I also like that with this brush, I can control how thin or thick I want my lines to be. It is my go-to brush for eye lining.


This is an angled brush used to apply darker shades under the cheekbones, temples, sides of the nose to give a more chiseled look to the face.


This brush is flat and has shorter bristles, it is used to apply eye shadow on the eyelids to give a smooth and even application to eye colour.
Let me know what your faourite makeup brushes are in the comment section below. I hope you enjoyed the post, enjoy the rest of your week and thank you for stopping by, xoxo.
