Sure, you have your blush brush, your kabuki brush, an eyeshadow brush or two, but what about a brush that pulsates? Or a brush that looks like it's meant to paint a canvas instead of your face? Sometimes, it's the weirdest looking beauty products that are the real lifesavers. Take a peek at these totally bizarre-looking, but totally useful makeup brushes.

Although this brush looks like it's for art class rather than your vanity, it's ideal for contouring. The swooping design and precision angle allows you to sculpt and contour for a super chiseled cheek.

Chances are you're used to sonic toothbrushes and even sonic facial cleaners. But sonic makeup brushes? That's what you get with Michael Todd's SonicBLEND brush which pulsates over skin to give a 3D airbrush-like finish.

beautyblender Bodyblender, $28 at Sephora

We bet you're not used to seeing your beautyblender like this! Designed to hug the curves of your body, this alternative to a body brush or tanning mitt, the bodyblender is great for body makeup or self-tanner application.

Artis Palm Brush, $65 at artisbrush.com

Nope, this brush isn't meant to shine your Loubs. Instead, it's designed to apply foundation (or skincare products) to your face and body. With its ergonomic design (it fits snug in your palm!), you can have total contouring control over where your product goes.

rms beauty Skin2Skin Foundation Brush, $38 at Sephora

This brush might not look that strange from far away, but get closer and see how the bristles are angled and swirled. This unique design is specially crafted to mimic your own fingertips to apply your favorite foundation flawlessly.
