First, the makeup tools

The round sponge is characterized by a slightly hard texture and a large area, which is suitable for making a large area at the forehead and cheek position. The other two textures should be more detailed, suitable for partial bottoming in the corners of the eyes, nose and mouth. Use a different shape of sponge to make the foundation more detailed.

Large puffs are suitable for large areas, and small puffs are suitable for topical makeup. The honey powder brush is a large cylindrical brush, which is the largest in the makeup brush

The first is the sponge (usually the foundation will be attached) and the puff. It is more important to have two blush brushes: one is a slanted mouth and the other is a round mouth. The slanting mouth is mainly used for the treatment of the three-dimensional aspect of the face, and the round mouth is the treatment of the harmony of the entire face. Then there is eyebrow extraction (or eyebrow shaping knife), eyebrow scissors, eyebrow pencil, eyeliner and more than two different size eye shadow brushes and eye shadow sticks. The most practical eye shadow sticks are medium in size. The last is the lip brush.
