Face Powder Brush
The long, fluffy bristles evenly diffuse loose powders.
I like my powder brushes big and fluffy for a light powder application, but with enough structure that they can also be used to buff/blend my face products or multi-task for bronzer application.
Sweep blush from the apples of your cheeks along your cheekbones.

The Foundation Brush
There are 2 different types of foundation brushes- the wide flat ones (that almost look like a traditional paint brush) and slightly rounded, kabuki style brushes. It’s really a personal preference which one you use, though I admit I like the rounded kabuki ones a bit more. I dip them into the foundation (I pump it on to the back of my hand) and then buff the makeup on to my face from there.
Pat on under-eye concealer.
