My Favourite Make Up Brushes

Monday, 28 September 2015

I have tried quite a lot of affordable make up brushes over the years and wanted to share with you my favourites!




Foundation and Concealer Brushes 


On the left is the Sonia Kashuk flat top foundation brush. I got this as part of a set when I was in Canada and I believe it was limited edition but I am sure there is the same brush available on the website. This brush is brilliant for really blending in the foundation and the quality of the brush is amazing for the price. 

In the middle is the Real Techniques pointed foundation brush. I actually use this to blend in my concealer as it's incredibly soft and the pointed end means it's great for getting in any corners etc. 

On the right is the Real Techniques detailer brush. I use this to touch up my lipstick and eyebrows with concealer. It's so tiny and is amazing for getting detail where you need it. 


Powder Brushes


On the left is the 17 Cheeks brush. As you can see it did actually break but don't let this put you off! I also own two of the exact brush and they haven't broken as you can see below so I think I was just unlucky. Anyway, this brush is around £3 and it is amazing! They are my all time favourite brushes. I use this brush to set my under eye area, nose and chin. I would definitely recommend!

On the right is the Real Techniques buffing brush. I think nearly everyone loves this brush. I used this to powder the rest of my face. This was part of a set which I got for half price in Boots, but I would definitely pay full price for them. 


Contour/Bronzer Brushes 


On the left is again the 17 Cheeks brush. I use this with a bronzer to warm up my face. The only reason the handle is pink and not black like the other one is because I got the black one in a set. 

The right brush is the Real Techniques contour brush. As the brush name suggests I use this to contour. You can really carve out your cheek bones with this brush as the shape is perfect for contouring. 


Blush Brush


For applying my blush again I just use the 17 Cheek brush. It is truly amazing hence why I own three of them!!


Eyeshadow Brushes 


These are all the exact same 17 Eyes brush. It is perfect for blending out your eyeshadow and for applying it on the lid. I mainly use them for blending as they are just the perfect shape and size for the job! These were around £2 I think each so a total bargain for what you get.
