What makeup brushes do I really need?

Jessica Bagdy, Pittsburgh

Bobbi: It's important to invest in a few key brushes. I keep these in my bag:

• Eye shadow brush You want natural, rounded bristles that cover your lid in one swoop.
• Blush brush Look for one big enough to cover the apple of your cheek in a single swirl.
• Eyeliner brush It should be a flat, firm brush with curved synthetic bristles—they hold their shape longer.
• Eyebrow brush Buy one that has short bristles cut on an angle. Yourbest bet is a blend of synthetic and natural bristles (all synthetic is too stiff and won't deposit color evenly).
