You can't deny that putting on makeup is almost equivalent to painting art, only the canvas is your face and you ultimately have no choice but to put it out there for everyone to see. For that, you'll need a brush (multiple ones, TBH); but when it comes to makeup application, picking out the right one could be tricky and even a little pricey. Which is why, for makeup beginners who have yet to learn the intricacies of highlighting and contouring, might we suggest some fuss-free products that won't require a brush?
