  3. Powder: A big, soft natural-fiber brush.

  5. Blush: A soft medium-full round brush. Natural fiber is best.
  6. Eye Shadow: A tapered, flat brush that is good for blending.
  7. Fan Brush: A light brush that is great for highlighter. It’s also good for brushing away loose eye shadow.
  8. Eyeliner: A narrow, angled brush for applying gel liner or shadow as liner.
  9. Eyelash and Brow Comb: The side with the small, plastic comb is used for removing mascara clumps from lashes. The bristled side is for grooming eyebrows.
