The flat brush is important for layering on a base color to your lid. You want a solid and even application to make your look as vibrant as possible. Although you can apply a base color with your fingers, a good flat brush brings better results. Our recommendations for this essential eye brush would be the Make Up For Ever 226 Medium Shader Brush, or the ilo Cosmetics 122 Shadow brush.

Eyebrow brushes are angled and designed for filling in your brows, but it can save you when an eyeliner brush is no where to be found. The angled design allows you to line your eyes flawlessly with a shadow. Not to mention, it makes it easy to get onto the upper waterline for a fuller look on the lashes. You cannot go wrong with the ilo Cosmetics 123 brush, which conveniently has a spoolie on the the opposite end. Another option is the Bdellium Studio angled brow brush!
