There's (almost) nothing better than receiving new makeup brushes.  Because let's be honest, you never really wash those things anyway.  The newest beauty tools to hit our desk are far from ordinary.  From foundation to CC cream and even lipstick, here are the hottest new makeup brushes on the market and a thousand reasons why you need them. 

Foundation Brush

RMS skin2skin Foundation Brushes, $38

For those of you who prefer to use your hands as the makeup applicators, this is the brush for you. This new face brush brought to you by RMS, mimics skin-to-skin contact covering your pores without dragging makeup across the skin. The varying length fibers are tightly layered in a swirl while holding thicker that the bottom and thinner at the top, allowing the brush to flawlessly reach every curve of your face. 

BB/CC Cream Brush


Sephora Classic Sheer Complexion #11, $24

Sometimes BB and CC Creams can cake on, especially while applying during humid, hot months of the summer. This new Sephora brush solves that problem for you. The brush has layered bristles that give you sheer application, showing just a slight wash of color and coverage, allowing you to maintain your ideal fresh-faced, natural look. 

Blending Brush


Laura Geller Lambswool Paddle Soft Focus Makeup Blender, $17

This new brush from Laura Geller will never leave an unblended face behind. Made from soft natural lambswool, the brush absorbs excess product while smoothing and blending in to give you your ideal amount of coverage. It’s good for powder foundation or blush that will end up looking flawlessly airbrushed.   

Smoky Eye Brush


Tarte Rule Bender Double-Ended Eyeshadow Brush, $28

This double-sided brush has all the eye makeup tools you need to guarantee sultry smoky eyes. While the flat end is perfect to pat and blend your shadows from the brow bone down to the lid, the angled end will help you create contours in the creases to give the extra dimension. What was once a difficult feat for you will now take you minimal time with just simple easy sweeps across the lids. 

Lip Brush 


Artis Fluenta, Circle 1, $36

If you’re one of those who has a big palette of beautiful lip colors, you need this brush. All Artis’ brushes are super soft and you actually hold them like a toothbrush. This particular model, with the signature tilt from the handle, has a round fibre bundle that flattens on the surface. This is meant to stimulate the shape of a lipstick bullet tip. That palette of lip colors is looking pretty promising now.
