Hi   Friends…
Couldn’t post for 3 days , as I was not well, still I ‘m not ,but c’not  keep myself from posting . Today I have for you . The makeup starter kit of brushes, for those who are naive to makeup. And little confused as what brush to use or have few basic tools to start. I’m gone a help you with it. I have shown more brushes to you but can opt to it. I’ll review each brush with their uses & shape.
I have not shown some , as I missed them.
So basic 5 to 7 brush you need. Later you can add some more to your needs. 
1. MAC --  No. 187.
Duo-fiber brush. Used for face & cheek’s or dusting loose powder. Extra soft fiber. Large flat topped, full circular. Can use as foundation blending that’s ( liquid or pressed foundation, mousse foundation ). It give a very light application, but you can build the coverage as needed. Being a duo fiber it does not pick too much product. You have to lightly dab the brush over the foundation, like shown below and then apply all over face. Done a swatch ( how it pick’s the foundation on the bristles )
This is my tinted moisturizer.
