Brushes are one of those makeup essentials you can’t live without. Smoky eyes don’t blend themselves, after all. Good brushes can make an okay -foundation formula blend like a dream and turn a patchy contour into a softly diffused work of art. Makeup brush sets also make great gifts and are the perfect way to tell the makeup junkie in your life you love them — without having to struggle through shade matching or picking from the buzziest palettes. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up the most giftable makeup brush sets money can buy. Peep our picks, ahead.
