While researching this blog, it was amazing to see how many brushes are considered "essential" for your makeup bag. Some beauty experts say seven, others say 10. There's bronzer brushes, highlight brushes, crease brushes and stippling brushes, whatever that is! A good set of high quality brushes has the ability to make even cheap makeup look amazing, while the wrong brushes will take away from the look of high quality, designer make up. We've tried to narrow it down to the five listed below.

Lexi Noel Beauty Shadow Brush

Lexi Noel Beauty Shadow Brush is a versatile eye shadow brush that allows for controlled application of color to any desired area of the lid. Great for powder eye shadows!
A Lip Brush
A lip brush will ensure that when you apply lip gloss or lipstick that your color goes on exactly where you want it to go and that you can shape your lips the way you like. We’ve all had those times when we’ve applied lipstick way outside our natural lip line by accident because the tip was too broad. You can ensure that never happens again with a lip brush.
By the way, a stippling brush is a great tool for women who are looking to get an airbrushed finish with their foundation. If you're familiar with art or arts and crafts, stippling is when you work a surface with small dots of paint. With liquid or cream foundation, it's often known as real-life airbrushing as it's how you achieve a flawless finish and disguise imperfections! Your fun fact for the day!
