The Only Face Makeup Brushes You'll Ever Need

This is a friendly reminder to wash your hoard of makeup brushes.

Tbh, we always forget to wash our brushes, and it's something we really need to work on. Not only does cleaning them get rid of bacteria and other yucky stuff, but it makes putting on makeup way better.

Are you on the hunt for some makeup brushes that will last a long time and get the job done? Look no further, because we tried out all sorts and have narrowed it down to our top five face makeup brushes. Look below to see which makeup brushes you need!

Ruby Kisses Kabuki Makeup Brush: $5.99

Everyone needs a Kabuki brush, and we're loving this inexpensive option from Ruby Kisses. The tightly compacted bristles allow for a controlled application of makeup. We especially like using this brush with setting powder, loose or pressed powder. But our favorite part? The hot pink handle, of course!

Base Blue Soft Brush II: $17

If you like to feel luxe when putting on your makeup, you need this made-for-a-princess brush from Base Blue. It comes sheathed in a rhinestone cover and is just begging to be put on display. This brush is great if you're aiming for more of a light, airy look. Our favorite way to use this is with highlighter—the brush picks up and transfers the perfect amount of product!

Dear Dahlia Pro Petal Brush: $29

If you prefer powder over creams and liquids, this brush from Dear Dahlia has your name all over it. Made with luxurious vegan and hygienic bristles, this brush will apply your makeup in a smooth, luxe manner. We especially like using this brush with blush and bronzer!

Luxie 660 Foundation Brush: $20

This foundation brush from Luxie is made of super soft bristles and will literally change your life. Instead of using your fingers to apply foundation or a brush you've had for years, get your hands on this bad boy. It works best with liquid and cream formulas, and trust us when we say you won't regret this purchase!

JUNO & Co. Microfiber Velvet Sponge: $6

We know, we know—this sponge from JUNO & Co. isn't a brush per se, but we couldn'not include it! This microfiber velvet sponge is way better than a BeautyBlender not only because it's cheaper, but because it actually works better! This sponge is great for buildable coverage, so you can go as light or heavy as you want and still look airbrushed.
