Hourglass No. 2 Foundation/Blush Brush

USERS SAID: "This brush is, quite simply, superb. I have used a range of different brushes over the years but the quality of Hourglass is, in my opinion, the best. This particular brush is so versatile: I use it to apply/buff foundation, bronzer and blush. There has been no shedding of bristles and it is like new after cleaning. A gem of a brush!"

FUN FACT: This brush is PETA-approved!

e.l.f. Cosmetics Angled Blush Brush

LOVED FOR: The $4 price tag and ridiculously soft brush head

USERS SAID: "I've always loved e.l.f. brushes and this one is no exception. Handle is sturdy, the angled bristles are good at picking up product and distributing it evenly on top of the cheekbones. This would not be good if you want to apply your blush to the apples of your cheeks."

FUN FACT: EcoTools annually donates $100,000 to a non-profit that improves the world we live in.

Sephora Collection Pro Angled Blush Brush #49

LOVED FOR: Giving you precise and beautifully applied blush every single time

USERS SAID: "I LOVE this brush! I had never seen an angled brush before and when the shop assistant in New York (8th and W. 42nd) showed this to me, I thought it was fantastic but maybe she was just using the sales pitch to get me to buy it. I am SO glad I bought it!!! SO soft and applies blush so easily and evenly." 

Bobbi Brown Blush Brush

USERS SAID: "Bobbi brushes are the best bang for your buck in quality brushes. This is my first blush brush and I love it....really does make a difference in application."

HELPFUL TIP: Gently stroke the Blush Brush over the blush of your choice and lightly tap off excess. Apply to the apples of the cheeks, blending outward and downward toward hairline for the most natural effect.

Bare Minerals Full Flawless Face Brush

BEST FOR: This is the do-it-all brush. Use it with foundation, blush, bronzer, highlighter, or setting and finishing powder to give your entire face the perfect airbrushed look.

USERS SAID: "This seems like a high-quality brush for the price. Super fluffy and soft. I have only used it for my blush so far. I like it because it doesn't deposit too much product for a softer look."

FUN FACT: The bristles are hand-cut and 100% cruelty-free.
