Question Best brushes to use?

Hello all,
I am using the paradise colors for face makeup as well as upper body and was wondering which kind of brushes would be best to use to apply the initial coats and also which work best to blend some of the colors together to create a transisitioning effect like from a light purple to a dark purple and to a black?

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

I'd suggest a foundation brush. That's what I use to apply my WolfeFx makeup ( which is also water based ), any specialized makeupFX/costume store could help you for choosing your brushes. As for the transitionning effect, I'd say that your best guess would be with sponges... I've never done it so I couldn't tell, but In my opinion, by starting with let's say, Black, let it dry, then take a sponge, apply gently your dark purple, slightly overlapping your black, let it dry, then apply the light purple, again overlapping on the dark purple... I hope it helped a bit haha, you can experiment different ways to apply your makeup, this way you will find a way to apply it like you want
