By Ezinne Onyearugha I do not think you need to purchase a 32-piece brush set (except you are a makeup artist) but these makeup brushes, I believe, should be in every woman’s little makeup bag.  
Foundation brush: The foundation brush is used to apply liquid or cream foundation for a full coverage and flawless finish!  
Concealer brush: This brush is great for applying concealer (one to two shades lighter than your skin tone) lightly to dark under eye circles, spots and blemishes.  
Powder brush: I use this brush to apply setting powder evenly over my face or just to dust on some foundation powder when I’m in a hurry.  
Blush brush: Use the blush brush to apply blush on the apples of your cheeks. Just smile and apply directly to your cheeks then sweep towards your hairline.  
Eye shadow brush: Used to apply eye shadow. Make sure you blend your eye shadow in so there are no harsh lines.
  Eyeliner brush: Perfect for putting on cream, or gel eye liner! Practice using a steady hand.  
Eyebrow brush: Great for grooming the eyebrows.   Brushes worthy of mention: The Kabuki brush is an awesome 2 in 1 brush that can be used for both foundation and blush! The lip brush is great for applying lip colors and blending them too! Feel free to comment if you think I’ve left something out!
