3 Multitasking Makeup Brushes Every Woman Should Own

by Lilly Wallace ; Updated September 28, 2017

A good makeup brush can make the application process easier and quicker, and also give a better result. However, most high-quality brushes tend to be expensive. If you plan on investing in a few good makeup brushes, you can get the best value for your money by purchasing multitasking brushes, which perform different functions in your makeup routine. Here are three brushes that you can use in multiple ways.

1. Round Face Brush

Depending on the size, round faces brushes can perform a few different functions, such as:

  1. Applying setting powder (which keeps the makeup in place longer and better, and also keeps the skin matte)
  2. Applying bronzer and contouring the face
  3. Applying blush to the apples of the cheeks

2. Eye Blending Brush

Blending brushes are specifically designed for the eye area and have a slightly tapered shape. They can be used in several ways, such as:

  1. Detailed eye shadow application, such a defining the crease of the eye
  2. Diffusing/blending eye shadows, to soften harsh-looking edges for a more natural look
  3. Highlighting the skin, both on the brow bone and on the cheekbones
  4. Blending under-eye concealer

3. Dual Ended Angled/Spoolie Brush

This type of brush comes with an angled eye brush on one end and a spoolie on the other. It is specifically designed for brow product application. These are a few different ways it can be used:

  1. Eyebrow powder/wax application (angled side)
  2. Blending of whatever makeup products has been applied to the eyebrows (pencil, powder, wax) with the spoolie side
  3. Combing eye lashes, especially to remove clumps after mascara application (spoolie side)
  4. Gel liner or powder liner application on the top lash line (angled side)
