I use mostly MAC brushes, but I love the 239 for lid color, 217 and 224 for highlight and crease work. I also love the 231 and 219.

a flat lay-down brush for really packing on colour and preferably thin enough that you can run it along the lower lash line as well:

examples: MAC 239 brush or the Sephora IT medium shader brush: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P148006&categoryId=C17384&shouldPaginate=true

 

A blending brush for blending out harsh lines and softening your eyeshadow in the crease especially:

Examples: MAC 217 (the best in my opinion) or the sephora IT blending brush : http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P259917&categoryId=C22580&shouldPaginate=true 

 

A contour crease brush, especially useful for doing any kind of smokey eye and applying color into the crease.

examples: Revlon contour crease brush ( my fave) or Sephora platinum natural crease brush: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P104015&categoryId=C17384&shouldPaginate=true

 

Pencil or dome-shaped brush for smoking out eyeshadow/liner along the lash line, or applying shadow to set on the lower lash line:

Examples: MAC 219, Paula Dorf Smokey lid brush, or Sephora platinum smokey eye brush:

http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P183728&categoryId=C17384&shouldPaginate=true

 

Lastly an angled or non-angled liner brush to use with pot gel eyeliners/ liquids etc. for doing thin lines, kitten flicks etc,

Examples: MAC 209 or MAC 266, Eco-tools slanted liner brush, Sephora platinum angled eyeliner brush or angled liner brush : http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P183727&categoryId=C17384&shouldPaginate=true

http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P93608&categoryId=C17384&shouldPaginate=true

 

Good luck and I hope this helps!!

I would add to mdlsksweethrt's list a spoolie brush. This is a long skinny brush that you can use to remove clumps of mascara from your eyelashes if you have a problem with your mascara. I like a spoolie better than an eyelash comb because I don't poke myself in the eye with it as much (clumsy, I know!) It separates the eyelashes and smooths the mascara along the length of your lashes.

The one eye shadow brush i can not live without is Sephora's #13 roounded crease brush. I blends great and it is good quality.
