New To Makeup? You Only Need 4 Brushes In Your Kikay Kit To Build Your Look!
  • If you're new to makeup, the thought of buying products for your kikay kit can be exciting, but you might find yourself lost when choosing the correct tools. You see 16- or 24-piece makeup brush sets in stores and think to yourself, "Do I really need all of these?"

    4 essential makeup brushes for beginners

    Here's the truth: You don't need to get those expensive sets especially if you're just a beginner! Below, we've listed down the seven essential brushes every makeup newbie should own:

    1. Foundation brush

    Trust us when we say that a good foundation brush is key for a smooth and seamless application. Reserve your fingers for your cream blush and invest in a stippling brush instead. This tool will give you a more airbrushed finish, thanks to its dense bristles.

    To avoid looking like an oil slick by midday, use a fluffy complexion brush to apply setting powder. Its soft bristles will evenly distribute the product, leaving your skin with a soft-focus finish.

    3. Eyeshadow brush

    For matte eyeshadows, fluffy brushes are your best bet; they will evenly distribute and diffuse the pigment. For shimmer or metallic ones, however, you can go ahead and use your finger to pack them on.

    Here are the other makeup brushes that you don't really need but are nice to have.

    Angled brush with spoolie

    You've already mastered using the brow pencil, so it's time to level up and try a pomade! Use an angled brush to carefully draw hair-like strokes, then soften it out with the spoolie on the other side.

    Highlighter brush

    A fluffy tapered brush is the best tool for applying your highlighter. Its smaller, pointed tip will allow you to sweep it on specific areas such as the tops of your cheekbones and the tip of your nose.
