Brush sets are a convenient way to go if you are starting from scratch and just learning how to apply make up but usually include many brushes that are not used in your every day look. The ones above are great to start your kit with and the most commonly used.
Do not forget to clean makeup brushes and tools regularly. A little baby soap and warm water will work to keep brushes free of bacteria that can build up.
