    5) Help me decide between the 3 foundation brushes- 13rave, Angled Flat Foundation and Flat Top Foundation. There are 2 considerations to be made here- firstly the type of makeup used and secondly speed vs precision. Here's a general guideline:

    Makeup used:

    • Liquid and cream foundation: Angled flat foundation / Flat Top Foundation
    • BB creams or bb cushions: Angled flat foundation / Flat Top Foundation
    • Liquid and cream blushers: Angled flat foundation
    • Liquid and cream contouring makeup: Angled flat foundation
    • Compact powder: 13rave
    • Powder based blushers: 13rave (While the 13rave might be slightly big for the cheeks, you can still use it as a blusher brush by picking up makeup with only one side of the brush)  

    If you require speed, choose the 13rave/ Flat Top foundation. If you require precision, choose the Angled Flat Foundation
