Your Bronzer Will Look 10 Times More Natural If You Use This Type of Brush

Yes, the type of makeup you choose is so important. We're all loyal to our own favorite brands and formulas that really work for our skin types, tones, and the looks we're going for. But your makeup also needs good brushes so you can apply it flawlessly. Do you know the phrase "Work smarter, not harder"? I believe a good makeup brush will help your makeup do just that.

There are so many different types of brushes out there for different types of makeup. You've got foundation brushes, blush brushes, eye shadow brushes… But today, we're going to focus on bronzer brushes.

Sure, you can use any brush to apply your bronzer, but then, you'd be at risk of cakiness, unevenness, or an unnatural color because you can't blend. That's why a bronzer brush will come in handy for contouring, adding definition to the angles of your face, and/or evenly dispersing bronzer all over so you can get an all-natural glow. Plus, depending on the formula—cream, liquid, or powder—you're going to need a specific brush for that bronzer consistency.

Take a look at these highly rated, editor-favorite bronzer brushes below.
