    Sometimes a good brush is what makes the difference between beautiful and bad makeup. Using makeup brushes does more than help you blend out your products, it also keeps the grime and dirt from your fingers away from your face. While using your fingers can be convenient when you’re pressed for time, it may result in a streaky finish – not a look anyone is going for.

    The more well-blended your makeup is, the better it will look. Brushes are able to blend out your products evenly to prevent patchiness. Plus, it’ll help your makeup last longer. Different eye brushes can also do wonders to create eye looks that will take you from day to night. Here are eight brushes that will take your makeup game to the next level.
