But don’t just take our word for it, we’ll demonstrate why Yubi’s Perfect Polish Set is one of the best makeup brush sets on the market.
We’ve put together some answers for your FAQs, a buyer’s guide, and tips and tricks to help you decide which makeup brush is best for you.
Here’s what we’ll cover:
The world of beauty can sometimes be incredibly overwhelming and makeup brushes are the perfect example.
Have you ever bought a makeup brush set with 8+ brushes and wondered what on earth they are all for?
To help you work out what they do, we’ve detailed 8 of the most popular brushes:
All-in-one makeup brushes can be used to replace a variety of makeup tools, for products such as foundation, powder, blush, and even eye makeup.
While each of the makeup brushes mentioned below has unique uses, the average woman does not need to own this many brushes! It’s simply not necessary, especially since we now have all-in-one brushes that can do the job of many.
For example, Yubi’s Perfect Polish Set is brilliant for applying all of your makeup and skincare products by replacing at least 9 makeup brushes and sponges.
These usually have a flat-top, domed, or tapered head made from short and dense bristles, providing a well-diffused application of foundation for a flawless finish.
Big fluffy brushes used to distribute loose or pressed powder across the face.
Used to buff out harsh lines and apply color to the cheeks, blush brushes are rounded and made from soft and fluffy bristles.
Contour brushes are often angled and flat, allowing for that precision required to expertly enhance your facial features.
Soft and flat makeup brushes designed to fit around the eye socket to transfer color to your eyelids. They can also be used to apply eye shadow to the lower and upper lash lines.
These small brushes are usually angled with a flat, tapered shape. Designed to apply color to the lips, as well as blending lip liner and lipstick.
These come in all shapes and sizes, depending on the area you want to blend. Blending brushes used for eyeshadow application are usually larger and fluffier than the eye shadow brushes.
They say that a bad workman always blames his tools but we’re pretty sure Leonardo da Vinci wouldn’t have been able to paint Mona Lisa using just his fingers.
Our fingers simply aren’t the right tools for the job.
Because they lead to uneven application of foundation, not to mention the increased risk of breakouts!
Brushes tend to work better with powder-based products, while sponges are great for flawless foundation cover, as well as mixing and blending colors.
According to Abraham Sprinkle, NYC-based hair and makeup artist, it’s all about the finish you want to achieve.
"If I want a seamless wash or blend, I love a sponge, but for saturation or precision, I use a brush."
We’ve put together some features to look for in a good makeup brush:
No makeup brush will last forever but some will last longer than others. If it’s shedding bristles before you even buy it, stay well clear!
Look for a brush with high-quality and long-lasting bristles that’s also easy to clean.
Buying a makeup brush with evenly-distributed dense bristles will ensure that you get that flawless finish.

The easier a brush is to use, the more precise your makeup application. So if you find thin and long handles difficult to grip onto, we recommend buying a brush with fingertip precision.
Aside from the fact that using a cruelty-free brush is the more humane choice, brushes with vegan bristles are definitely the more budget-friendly and hygienic choice. This is because, unlike animal hair bristles, they don’t ‘drink’ your makeup products or trap dirt and bacteria. Plus, they’re much easier to clean!
Dense brushes with shorter fibers are better at applying a higher concentration of product across your skin and your coverage will be more even.
Always check out online reviews before you buy a makeup brush! If plenty of people have vouched for its effectiveness, then it’s much more likely to do what it says on the tin.
Depending on the type of foundation you use, you might want to choose a different brush (or sponge).
Luckily, Yubi's Perfect Polish Set comes with a Buff Brush and Blend Sponge for all of your makeup needs.
Here are a few pointers to help you decide between brush and sponge when applying foundation:
The best makeup brush for cream and liquid foundation will have evenly distributed dense bristles to ensure perfect coverage across the face.
Choose a brush with vegan bristles as those made from animal hairs will ‘drink’ your products and trap bacteria and dirt.
Alternatively, some prefer to use a makeup sponge for a more natural, blended finish. Just be careful if you have dry skin as using a blending sponge can aggravate it further, in which case a brush might be a better option.
For dry foundation, using a soft brush is much better than a sponge as it evenly disperses the powder across your face.
Ultimately, the right brush will make your makeup application a pleasant and rewarding experience.
Buy the wrong brush and you risk aggravating your skin, spending more money on beauty products, and *shock horror* leaving the house with patchy coverage!
