Makeup, whether you’re a disciple of the ‘less is more’ aesthetic or a die hard lover of a bold and beautiful statement lip or eye, there are few things more satisfying (and fun) than playing with products to enhance your naturally beautiful features every day. However, just like every great artist needs reliable tools to make a masterpiece, we believe popping together a beautiful makeup look begins with making sure you’ve got the right brushes in your kit.

From luxurious vegan kabuki powder brushes, to double duty space savers these are our can’t-live-without-them-just-have-to-have-them guide to makeup brushes. Let’s get creative!

Morgan Annie: Large Eyeshadow Brush Featuring beautifully soft vegan bristles and gently curved tip, this eyeshadow brush is perfect for creating a soft and even application of product. Dip it in your favourite mineral eyeshadow like these shimmery delights by Kylie’s Professional, and sweep it gently across the whole lid, making sure to blend evenly at the brow bone and edges to keep the effect soft and pretty.

Quite Frankly: Natural Vegan Kabuki Brush It doesn’t matter if you’re a full coverage fan or just like to add a gentle glow to your skin every morning, this full and fluffy kabuki brush by Quite Frankly is perfect for spreading a little (or a lot) of colour to your routine. Our top tip? Swirl it over this Flawless Mineral Bronzer by TMF and sweep the product over your temple, cheekbones and jawline in a ‘3’ shape to achieve a quite frankly beautiful sun-kissed glow.

With a fine tipped, angled head on one end (perfect for blending a soft liner on your lid) and a bristled brow grooming brush on the other end for whipping your brows back into shape. Save space, save time and save yourself the trouble of switching between brushes on the go.
