    Look 1: Soft Focus Flush
    The F25 Tapered Face brush features a large, tapered-tip brush head. This brush works great for applying blush or bronzer powder products onto the cheekbones and temples. We like to use Intense Gaze from the new Anastasia Shadow Couture Palette for a soft focus flush.

    Look 2: Smudged Eyes
    The E35 blending brush features a slightly firm and rounded brush head and can be used universally when blending products. This brush works well to soften intense lines and edges, and is great for combining colors on the lid. For a slightly undone look, gently mix Fudge and Spoiled (both from the Anastasia shadow palette) for a base, and then mix up a traditional smoky eye with a wet bronze finish on the under and outer corners of your eye.

    Look 3: Graphic Orange
    The E15 Flat Definer features a thin, flat edge, best used for applying powder cream or gel products to the eye area. It creates a sharp, precise line - great for bold colors. For a twist on traditional eyeliner, use Morocco from the Couture World Traveler palette for a graphic yet polished look.

    Look 4: Bright Eyes
    The E55 Eye Shading brush features a soft and dense squared brush head with slightly rounded edges, meaning this brush works best for an all-over application of color to the lid. From the Shadow Couture palette, use Pink Champagne shade for a wash in the center of the lid, and finish with Chic shadow for a soft iridescent sheen. When applying with this brush, we like starting with lighter shades for a base.
