How I use to apply make up without a brush, I really do not know (yes, I used my fingertips for most bits of make up that I applied to my face, sounds dodge), but today, I could never live without a good brush for applying different types of products. So let me talk you through my top five make up brushes, the ones I literally swear by and probably wouldn’t be able to function without them.
Starting off with eyes, the No7 Eye Colour Brush is pretty handsome in my opinion, the head is a good size for application and blending and soft bristles make it perfect for the sensitive eye area. For blusher, I always go back to the Dolce & Gabbana Blush Brush. Made with high quality goat hair, this brush makes blush application super easy and accurate and imparts just the right amount on to my skin without looking cakey. Moving on to concealer, the ecoTools Concealer Brush (*) gets a massive thumbs up from me. It’s a great brush for helping to get concealer in to the nitty gritty parts and blends really, really well. A real bargain too, at £5.49, you can thank me later. Now, on to my most favourite brush in this post, the MAC 109 Small Contour Brush is literally, the one! The softest bristles a brush can have, combined with the excellence of applying sculpting powder with ease, no more words are needed. Lastly, for foundation, since using the Real Techniques Buffing Brush from the Core Collection, I have rarely strayed. This brush blends foundation in so well, it gives the most smoothest and most flawless finish a girl could ever ask for. As this brush can’t be bought alone, it can be a little annoying when it comes to replacing it, but I love it, so, so much, that it doesn’t bother me too much.
Have you tried any of these brushes before? What are your favourite brushes?
