Makeup brushes are the most important beauty tools for makeup you can every own. With proper care high quality brushes can last you for a lifetime. Personally I use brushes from a wide variety of brands both high-end and drugstore brands. In this post I’m going the share some of my favourite brushes and what I normally use them for.
❤ Eye Brushes:
These three brushes are my some favourite brushes to use for regular eyeshadow application.
GOSH Flat eyeshadow brush #332: This brush is one of the best brush I own for eyeshadow application on the lid. The brush is quite dense and its therefore perfect for packing on colours on the eyelid.
Beauty Needs eyeshadow brush: The brush is slightly smaller then the brush by GOSH and it’s also great for eyeshadow application on the eyelid.
Beauty Needs Lip Brush: This brush is actually a lip brush, but because of its perfect size this brush allows me to apply colour to my inner tear duct area.
Using blending brushes is key to a perfect makeup look! Here are some of my favourite ones that I frequently use.
MAC #217 Blending Brush: I use this brush for both applying eyeshadows on the lid and for blending out harsh lines.
Urban Decay Naked 2 palette Blending Brush: The brush is great for blending eyeshadows in the crease and because of the soft hairs it makes blending so much easier.
ELF Blending Brush: ELF’s Blending Brush is one of my favourite brush, I actually own quite a few of these brushes. I love the brush not only for the reasonable price but because of the shape of the brush, it’s just the perfect shape to use for blending eyeshadows in the outer V and in the crease.
❤ Face Brushes:
One of the best ways to achieve a flawless finish with your foundation, is by applying the foundation using a stippling brush. By simply buffing in the liquid foundation using these brushes gives is a great coverage as well as a beautiful natural finish.
Real Technique Stipple Brush:
Using this brush to apply liquid foundation in small circler motions gives the skin a perfect and flawless finish. Because of the perfect size this brush is great to apply other liquid or cream products such as cream blushers or liquid highlighters.
ELF’s stippling brush:
This brush was one of my first stippling brushes I tried and this brush made me stop using traditional foundation brushes. The brush is very affordable and gives the face a flawless finish.
Forever 21 Top Flat Stippling brush: I bought this brush last year at Forever 21 and it came in a set of three. I like to use this brush for cream foundations because of the flat top, it really makes buffing in the product easy!
Real Techniques Expert Face brush: I love this brush because the hairs are very dense and it’s perfect for contouring my face! Click here to see how I contour my face.
Beauty Needs Powder Brush: I use this brush to apply my setting powder. I love the size of it not big nor to small!
Forever 21 Blush Brush: This brush came in the brush set from Forever 21, and I use this brush to apply my bronzer or blush on my cheeks!
Forever 21 Angled Contour/highlight brush: This brush is also from the brush set, and I particularly use this brush to apply my powder highlight on the top of my cheekbones.
