It is common for the stylish women who wake up for makeup, alongside extra skincare routines and it seems like they can not live without it.An updo hairstyle, sexy wedges, and the little black dress will not be complete in the absence of foundation, eye shadow, lipstick and other cosmetics.

You say makeup can save a bad day as long as it fits your skin and gets you glowing but we never even say have too much of it. Unquestionably, you gave a strong nod to Bobbi Brown when she said, “Makeup is a way for a woman to look and feel like herself. Only prettier and more confident.”

For determined women in fashion, makeup is an art. You get to be a makeup artist (MUAs) every time you blend, shape, soften, and highlight any detail on your face. Just like any other artist, you need tools- reasonably priced and high quality. They are your weapons to successfully carry out your everyday makeup thingy.

Let’s get going and be in the know of the brushes that you need in your lives, shall we? According to Makeup pro, Nina Park says “There are no rules where one type of brush is specific to one area”

Be sure to have these in your makeup kit: foundation brush, powder brush, concealer brush, kabuki brush, angled blush brush, all-over eye shadow brush, smudger brush, angled eyeliner brush, lash or brow comb or brush, and fan brush. They are everywhere from upscale and low-end cosmetics stores to online shops.

These are the recommended synthetic bristles from 9-Neko: 1. 170 MAC Synthetic Rounded Slant Brush2. Hourglass Angled Liner Brush, 3. Bobbi Brown Concealer Brush, 4. MAC 316 Lip Brush, 4.Artis Fluenta Oval 6.
