The large brush works perfect for the powder foundations, the angled brus is a blush brush, there is a base eye shadow brush, a high lighting eye shadow brush and a lip brush.

Large brush is for all over finishing powder or bronzer. Angled bristled brush (second from left in photo) is for contoured application of blush, bronzer, or illuminating powder. I prefer a normal blush brush that's rounded (no angle). Middle brush is a large eye shadow brush for all over color. Smaller brush is for eyes, but for more detailed application such as highlighter under your brows. Far right brush is a retractable lip brush to use for applying gloss, lipstick, etc. It's excellent to use this sort of brush to line your lips using the pigment from a lip stick tube and then apply the lip stick per usual. You'll get a clean line.
This kit does not include any foundation or concealer brushes, which is what I think you want. If you use mineral or powder foundation, then you will want a large powder brush (like the one in this kit) and a large kabuki brush (very short handled brush with lots and lots of bristles for great blendability and coverage control). If you wear liquid foundation, then you want to use a large foundation brush which is flat and stiffer than a powder brush. Also buy the smaller version (sometimes called a concealer brush) so that you can apply concealer or your liquid foundation around eyes and nostrels.
