9 Brushes We Can’t Live Without

Hi there, Megan from Makeup in the 702 coming at you with another outstanding topic this week. What brushes do you REALLY need?  Let me preface this by saying, I do believe your fingers are amazing tools and in my opinion are the best for cream/liquid products like concealers and liquid highlighters. The warmth of your fingers really helps to spread and keep the consistently of the product while working. I would also like to point out that not all brushes are equal. Like most anything, you get what you pay for and that could not be truer when it comes to brushes. So, let’s get into it shall we.
