I finally found a pretty good visual guide to makeup brushes. I found it on Pinterest, but it actually comes from Maskcara‘s blog. She lays out most of the important brushes you will ever need/use and then tells you how to use them and how much coverage they give you. I think the graphic is easy to read and easy to follow. The graphic uses symbols to show you her personal favorites, which makeup brushes are the absolute basics, and then she goes into which brush is used or powder or cream or liquid. You really can’t go wrong with this chart. This chart is really good for those just starting to build their collection of makeup brushes. If you are looking for some makeup brushes that really do the trick without breaking the bank, try E.L.F. Cosmetic’s Studio brushes.
