I think the reason this topic has been requested so much is that brushes can be a really intimidating subject. There are just so many sizes, shapes, brands, types, etc. and I can definitely see how it can all get a little overwhelming!

So I went online and ordered my first-ever makeup brush set, and I've never looked back!

However, there are also some really great affordable brushes out there as well! Whatever your budget, here are some amazing options:
Rather than write a novel-length explanation of every brush and its use, I decided to create this handy infographic to show you guys everything you need to know!

If you see something that catches your eye, a link for each photographed brush/tool will be included below!
