**For the CONFUSED: Sorry I use a lot of Technical words. I do this so that you know WHY a particular brush is used/how to pick out brushes.
READ THIS simplified explanation. (use the pause button too, if u need to)
1.choose brush hair type preference:
ANIMAL or SYNTHETIC(Vegan friendly+antibacterial-great for acne!, stays soft!)
2. DENSITY -tells u what brush to get based off of product being used or coverage desired(foundation wise)
Complexion: Fluffier/Bigger brushes grab less product = light application
More dense hair brushes grab more product (ex. kabuki brushes)= more coverage
Eyeshadow brushes: bigger brushes=lighter shadows, smaller brushes=darker shadows
