When I first started using makeup I owned about three brushes. I used all three for multiple products and hardly washed them. I figured if the makeup got from the pan or bottle onto my face than that was good enough! As I’ve grown older and more knowledgeable about makeup, my collection of makeup brushes has grown. I now know that each one has a specific purpose and place in a makeup routine. That’s not to say that you can’t break the rules and use a blush brush to apply highlighter (*gasp* THE HORROR!). However you’ll find that your makeup goes on much easier when you use the right brushes.
