Blending in your foundation, getting that eyeshadow gradation right, and applying lip gloss neatly can sometimes feel like such a chore. But oval brushes have changed the game, and finally eased that sense of helplessness when it comes to getting makeup application right (and fast). Aside from the unique design of an oval brush, its densely placed bristles allow you to pick up more product without necessarily applying too much at a time. This means that the bristles have the unique ability to hold product and distribute pigments in a more uniform and precise manner. 

The oval shape of these brushes is really what sets them apart from your usual brushes and sponges. The compact bristles arranged in an oval head allow you to "polish" your face because of the slope the bristles and the angle the handles form. The super fine bristles also help in getting the product to adhere seamlessly onto your skin.


As a simple guide to using these brushes in various sizes, the bigger ones are generally for foundation and loose powder application while the medium sized ones are best for highlighting and contouring. The smaller ones can be used for eyeshadow and concealer application while the smallest brush is best for applying lipstick or lip gloss.
