Brushes are so important for creating a seamless and flawless makeup look. Gone are the days where we would apply foundation with our hands and eyeshadow with those little spongey tips. Here are some of my favourite brushes that have become serious staples in my makeup bag.
The first one is this artis dupe that I picked up in Primark in the sale for £2. It has such a great surface area and it is so dense. I love this for blending my foundation in. It takes literally 5 minutes to fully blend out my foundation. I also love how the product only ever sits on top of the brush and it never gets clogged in the hairs. The brush also washes really well. Sometimes with brushes they just aren’t their self after a quick shampoo. It handles Dermacol well which makes it my favourite brush.
Another of my favourite brushes is this contour brush from Real Techniques. Real Techniques are such a big deal in the makeup community and you can see why. They are so incredibly soft and good quality. This brush is so versatile. I have used this for concealer, contour and loose powder. It fits perfectly under my eyes so it is perfect for seamlessly blending concealer and setting it with powder. I love it for contour too as it is kind of tapered at the top making it perfect for fitting in your cheek bones.
This next one is another Real Techniques brush. This time it is the foundation brush. You can use this with lots of foundations and particular for liquids. The brush is so dense and so none of the the product gets absorbed. This brush also blends so quickly. Besides using this brush for foundation is also works well again for pushing powders into the skin. With dermacol you need a loose powder to set everything down. This works brilliantly as well!
The final brush is this wet n wild brush I picked up in America. It is pink and white which I love as it is so chic and feminine. The brush has little grooves in it which make it so easy to hold on to. I love using the fluffy top of this brush for blending into the crease and the side for packing shadows onto the lid. This is such a cheap brush too, it only cost around $2. Again this brush is so soft and cleans well. It has retained all its fibres and doesn’t go funny colours with the eyeshadows. It has retained its bright pink colour the whole time I’ve had it!
