We cosmetics junkies all remember the day we got our first makeup brushes. Sure, applying your foundation with fingers is a great way to get even coverage, but getting that gorgeous cut crease of perfect contour requires a bit more precision. What makeup brushes do beauty vloggers use? Here's your go-to guide if you're on the search for that perfect, personalized set of brushes, and who better to give you the run down of the best brushes on the market than your favorite beauty bloggers? From Jaclyn Hill to MannyMUA, these beauty gurus know their stuff and they're sharing it with you.  

YouTube gurus have always been valuable, ever since the advent of YouTube's beauty community. However, they seem to be having a major moment as of late. Major cosmetics brands are now harnessing the power and influence of gurus — also called influencers, imagine that —to create one-of-a-kind products. From Jaclyn Hill's insanely popular work with BECCA Cosmetics to Laura Lee's gorgeous eyeshadow palette with Violet Voss, brands know the power of a beauty influencer.

Based on viewership, it looks like everyone knows just how powerful these men and women can be. Plus, it's not just popularity, many of the beauty vloggers you love have worked for major brands like MAC Cosmetics or have their own cosmetology degrees. They're legit, people.
