Makeup Brushes


Applying makeup is not just another thing on your todo list for the day. Whether you’re applying it to yourself or another person, it is a form of art and expression. Makeup should be used to enhance you natural beauty. Having the proper tools, to assist in the application whether it’s personal or professional will make all the difference!

Makeup brushes come in a plethora of types and styles. The bristles can be synthetic or natural (badger, goat hair).They each serve a specific purpose.
