Any beauty expert will tell you it's well-worth investing in brushes to give your make-up a flawless finish. Plus, you use less product when you apply with a brush. So, a set of brushes may be an outlay now but looked after and cleaned regularly, they will last years - and save you money in the long-run on products.
We've put brushes for all tasks to the test, from Real Technique's good-value brush for perfect liner up to Smashbox's clever three-in-one tool. Here's our pick of the best.

For your one brush suits all, you can't beat the Smashbox Telephoto 3-in-1, while Clinique have an excellent brush range with their Foundation Brush being my favourite. But for all round greatness, the Daniel Sandler brushes are superb – the Concealer Brush for under eye bags is the best I've ever used and his oversized Kabeauti Brush is perfect for all blush, bronzer and pressed powders.
