Here's the ugly truth about makeup for most of us: you can spend a fortune on the best products, but if you're using the wrong tools to apply it, your makeup will never have the flawless look you expect from a $75 foundation. I had this epiphany recently. I was wandering through Sephora (because it's my happy place) and there it was: the giant display of makeup brushes. The one that takes up an entire row; the one I usually walk right past. But I've had profound doubts about my makeup lately, so I stopped to browse. What, exactly, does a Brush #57 do? Is that funny egg-shaped sponge worth a few bucks?

I'm not prone to hyperbole, so I won't say the teeny concealer blending brush (a.k.a. #57) I bought changed my life, but I will say the blending and coverage it offers is 10 times better than anything I've ever done with my fingers or the little flat brush I used before, and I was using the same exact concealer I've always used. Little 'ol #57 changed my entire view on makeup brushes and kick-started this foray into discovering the other brushes I've been missing out on. If you're looking to update your makeup brush set, see how one or two new brushes and can make over your makeup routine.
