There are a ton of gimmicky, ridiculously-shaped makeup brushes that don’t actually do anything except look good. Mermaid tails and unicorn horns and blah, blah, blah.*Yawn* Those are all basically trendy bullshit. But there are some weirdly-shaped brushes that actually work and benefit from the strange form factor because sometimes, the angles and swirls and giant handles aren’t just for looks.
