If you’ve ever bought makeup brushes before, you know what we’re talking about here. A cheaply-made brush that falls apart as you’re applying your makeup on is not good news. The quality of the bristles also makes a difference when it comes to coverage. Remember: You’re going for blended, not cake-y.
And it doesn’t matter how low maintenance your beauty routine is, you’re going to need more than one brush to finish your look. That’s why brush sets are the best.
