Makeup Brushes

Makeup brushes can be extremely overwhelming. Most clients complain to me about feeling intimidated to use brushes because they don’t know the purposes of each one. Brushes can help you achieve an incredible look vs. the use of your fingers and disposable sponge’s. Here is a beginners guide to makeup brushes and their uses.
