8 Best Professional Beauty Makeup Brushes Set And Kits With Reviews

One of the differences between professional makeup brushes and other makeup brushes is that professional brushes are durable and of high quality. There are two main types of professional makeup brushes and they are natural brushes and vegan brushes. Vegan brushes are usually made of synthetic hair while natural brushes are made of animal hair. The good thing is that there is no difference when it comes to the performance or the quality of these two types of makeup brushes. The following are some of the best professional makeup brushes in the market today.

Artis Brush | Fluenta 9 Brush Set

This is one of the most expensive makeup brush sets in the market and it’s easy to see why that is the case as its quality and design is exceptional. The handles of all the nine brushes are in an amazing curvy and fluid shape which allows you to have more control and they end with either circular, oval, or even linear delicate bundles made of fiber. The nine brushes found in this set are Oval 3 which is ideal for eye makeup, Oval 4 which is perfect for eye makeup & Concealer, Oval 6 which is ideal for foundation, highlight & blush, Circle 1R for lip color, Circle 1 for lip color & eye shadow, Linear 3 for eyebrows & eye liner, and Linear 1 for eye brows & eye liner.


Professional makeup brushes play a very essential role when applying makeup as they always give you an even and elegant finish. Applying makeup with your fingers or other materials exposes you to the risk of wearing makeup that is not evenly spread out. This is something that cannot happen when you apply your makeup using any of the above high-quality professional brushes. To ensure that the brushes serve you for a long period of time, you should know how to clean them after use as they are expensive and you cannot afford to keep going back to the shop after every now and then. Makeup brushes are delicate which is why they should never be cleaned using hot water; the best for this purpose is lukewarm water. With the help of either some olive oil or even soap, you should be able to carefully massage the brushes until they have no makeup residues left and then dry them either using clean tissues or in the air.
