Having the right tools can mean your foundation applies better, highlight is more precise and under eye concealing is seamless. 

I have chosen my three favourite face brushes that I would definitely recommend getting your hands on. Each of the options are quite affordable so they are perfect if you are on a budget.

Real Techniques Pointed Foundation Brush
What I use it for: I use this brush to seamlessly blend undereye concealer.
Why you need it: It is flat and thin allowing you to press it quite close to the skin while the tapered point gives a precise application underneath the eye. Real Techniques brushes are amazing quality and I would highly recommend them especially since this brush is about two or three years old and still going strong.
Price: This brush is offered in a set for $17.99 and can be purchased from and you can use the code QAB322 for $10 off orders over $20 and $5 off orders over $10.

Furless Purple Power Set Angled Blush Brush
What I use it for:  This brush is extremely reliable for applying all powder products.
Why you need it: These are some of the softest brushes ever and I recommend this particular brush as a must-have because it is so incredibly versatile working for blush, bronzer and highlighter. The slanted angle and tapered fluffy tips seamlessly blend out face powders so it is definitely a go-to brush for me that I know will work well.
Price: This brush retails for $12.99 and you can purchase it from here.

Sigma 3DHD Kabuki 
What I use it for: Effective and precise application for foundation. I really want to try this with face power as well because I can imagine it would work great.
Why you need it: This brush offers the best of both worlds; flat and precise surfaces on the blush to apply your foundation. It tapers to a point which helps get into tricky areas like around your nose and under your eyes. It is an interesting twist on any ordinary kabuki brush and really effective in applying foundation flawlessly.
Price: This brush retails for $24 and you can purchase it from here.

Those are my three must have face brushes I would highly recommend. The best deal is definitely the Real Techniques brush because for the price you also get three other great brushes. The Sigma one is fairly expensive but definitely worth the investment if you are looking for a holy grail foundation applicator.
