What are the best brushes for perfecting base makeup?

BOM-141

This is my most coveted brush for an angelic finish. This brushes leaves a second skin-like application and its recommended use is for foundations, tinted moisturizers, CC, and BB Creams. Not to mention, the dense bristles feel like a gentle massage on your face, which promotes circulatory benefits.

BOM-195

This is my favorite brush for applying powder or cream bronzer. The size of this full fan brush seamlessly cuts application time. This brush is bound to get compliments; it is so luxurious to the touch.

BOM-130

The round brush filaments of this brush allow for a more precise application of powder. I love to use this brush to powder any hard-to-reach areas, such as the under-eyes and around the nose. This is perfect for powdering any spot concealed areas or hot spots.

What about for eyes?

BOM-445 

This crease brush is a forever staple in my kit. It is excellently shaped for defining a crease or creating a flawlessly blended smoky eye. Fun fact: I also love to use this gem for buffing in concealer. I love how versatile this brush is.

BOM-402

The small, dense fibers of this brush help create a controlled smoke effect. This is a constant go-to for smudging liners on the upper and lower lash lines.

BOM-475

This liner brush has a precision angled ferrule and is recommended for tightlining and applying gel or liquid liners and creams. The shape of the ferrule allows for a more controlled application. The tip of this brush is actually thin enough for the application of faux freckles and filling in beauty marks.

What brush should I use to finish my look?

BOM-601

The small, round shape of this lip brush allows for a thorough lip application. The ideal lip brush for perfecting a bold pout!
