Image: It’s hard to know where to start when it comes to buying beauty products, especially makeup brushes. It may not seem like much, but this does involve a fair bit of know-how. From copious amounts of at your favourite luxe beauty counter to an endless number of brush sets in the market, it’s a tough job to pick what will work for your budget and beauty routine. Is it really necessary to buy luxury brushes, or can you get away with reasonably priced ones that do the job? We talked all things makeup brushes with two Bollywood makeup artists to get their professional advice.
Think of this as your go-to guide to shopping for the best brushes. Whether you want a budget-friendly starter kit or want to amp up your beauty bag with a splurge-worthy blending brush, we’ve got you covered. How can I spot a good-quality makeup brush? Known for working with actors like Bipasha Basu and Esha Gupta, Harry Rajput knows brushes like the back of his hand.
He gives us his best secrets to finding a great quality makeup brush. “There are few ways to test a high quality makeup brush. First, rub it against your skin. The bristles should feel soft, not rough or scratchy,” says Rajput. The bristles play an important part in the lifespan of a brush. “Check the strength of the bristles by rubbing the brush against your hand and see if any fibres fall out,” he advises.
A brush can last a long time if it’s of solid quality and taken care of properly. “If any bristles do fall out, then steer clear of buying it,” Rajput adds. How do I know if the material of the makeup brush is right? Mumbai-based celebrity makeup artist Bianca Louzado states that the easiest way to choose is by following a simple guide. “Use a brush that contains real hair for dry products—think powder, and blush, and synthetic for wet products like foundation or concealer.” Real hair is known to soak up wet formulas, which will waste the product in the end. “A dual-fibre brush is great because it can be used for a wet, cream or dry product,” Louzado adds. Natural haired brushes tend to be more expensive than synthetic brushes, so it’s something to keep in mind when shopping for your starter kit.

Which basic makeup brushes should I buy first? “To start your brush collection, I would recommend you go for Real Techniques, both the brush set and eye brush set, which includes five different brushes,” recommends Rajput.
One of the first brushes you should purchase is a foundation brush. “The best designed foundation brushes have a flat top. It blends the product well and leaves the skin smooth and even,” he adds.
His favourite flat top foundation brushes are Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and BareMinerals Beautiful Finish Brush. If you are opting for a different brand and brush, Rajput recommends applying a sample of foundation to your skin to check the quality and blending ability of the brush. Louzado adds that her go-to reasonably priced brushes are Real Techniques and ELF Cosmetics. For a set that is moderately priced, she loves Sigma. All of these are perfect for a beginner who’s not looking to spend too much on their first brushes, but still want great quality. She also recommends investing in a beauty blender as well for a starter kit.
It’s a multi-purpose that expands when wet. Although it’s meant to be used wet, you can use it for many products. Use it to bake underneath the eyes with a dry powder and then use it for foundation, concealer and any cream-based products when wet. Which makeup brushes should I invest in?

If you have an urge to splurge and are travelling to Japan, Louzado has a recommendation, “my favourite brushes and ones that I highly recommend indulging on are Hakuhodo make-up brushes. They are steep, but worth it.” They have a great selection, are made of natural hair and are hand assembled in Japan.
Need options closer home? Foundation brush Rajput loves the M.A.C Cosmetics foundation brushes. “M.A.C is my favourite brand for brushes, especially the smaller foundation brushes.” He also uses and recommends Sephora Collections’ foundation brushes. Eyeliner and eyeshadow brush For a high-end eyeliner brush, Rajput recommends M.A.C’s 209 Eye Liner Brush, which is perfect for lining the eyes because of it’s fine-tipped firm end which gives precision.
“For blending eyeshadows, I always go for Sigma’s blending brush.” Under-eye brush For blending, Rajput loves using the Sephora Collection PRO Blending Brush #27. Contouring brush One of Louzado’s favourite splurges for a contouring brush is the Ita Kabuki Brush by NARS. “It’s made out of silky soft goat hair and it’s ideal for targeted. It defines and sculpts the cheekbones, jawline and nose perfectly,” says Louzado. “It doesn’t create the plastic mannequin-like contour as is popular on Instagram, but creates an illusion of a shadow, which is the goal of a natural look,” she adds. Powder brush Rajput suggests using the Kryolan Ultra Powder Brush 9722 for powder-based products. The bristles are very light and it gives you an even finish on your face.
