9 Basic Makeup Brushes To Have

You don’t have to run out and get a $200 makeup brush set, though I know I want to buy the more expensive ones and I don’t advise using the ones that come in your makeup you purchase. All you need is 9, yes that’s right, 9, brushes for the basic makeup application. I am going to show you some from Sigma Beauty, but you don’t have to use THAT brand, you can use absolutely any brand!
