Brushes are really really important. For your eyeliner you want a really thick, stiff stiff tiny brush. You want it as stiff as possible. You don’t want it to give at all as you are lining the eye. Contour brush, you want it to be smaller than a blush brush and angled to where the brushes come in at an angled point so that you can get the hollows of the cheek and everything. Really contour the straight angles of your face. The blush brush you want to be not as big as your powder brush but bigger than your angled contour brush. You don’t need it angled; it can be fluffy because you’re just working in a circular motion going upwards. And you want it to cover the entire cheek. So if you can put your brush like that and smash it down and it covers the entire apply of your cheek you’ve got the right blush brush. As far as your powder brush, you want it to be really big and fluffy. It doesn’t necessarily need to be angled because the more bristles that are on it the more product you can get on it without looking clumpy. So you just want something big that you can get your entire forehead with you know in one swipe. You’re bronzer brush is going to be biggest, huge big fluffy brush. With brushes you really do get what you pay for. I usually use Mac or something, I mean you really there is a quality difference between what you pick up in a drugstore versus the department store end brushes
