Top Five Makeup Brushes

Hello Everyone!
I was cleaning my brushes and thought to myself, " why haven't I done a blog post on my favorite brushes?". You all can guess what comes next... a blog post on my favorite makeup brushes!! :) I feel like makeup brushes get a complicated rep in this industry. Most women don't even use makeup brushes and that is totally okay! I want to emphasize that makeup brushes do not have to used for the exact purpose that they are advertised. In fact, most makeup brushes can be used for more than one purpose. These are the brushes I love and how I use them:

1. Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush.

This came in the "starter set" from ULTA. This is a synthetic brush with an aluminum handle. I use this brush for concealer, particularly under eye concealer. I have about three of these and I LOVE them. The whole Real Techniques line is pretty incredible!

2. MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush

I purchased this brush because it was highly recommended from my makeup artist friend. I purchased this about two months ago and I have used it on every job since. I love using this brush to pack on color to the lid. Its soft bristles and rounded edge does wonders for eye shadow.

3. MAC 109 Small Contour Brush

This brush can be used for so many different things. I use this to contour, for blush and to blend out foundation. This may be a miracle brush. I love the unique size of this rounded dome tipped brush. This would be a great "one and done" face brush. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

4. Urban Decay Optical Blurring Brush

This vegan brush works wonders with any cream, liquid or powder foundation. I use this brush a ton to buff foundation into the skin. I love the flawless finish this brush creates. LOVE

5. MAC 217 Blending Brush


 This is an iconic brush in the makeup artist world. This is the eye brush that does it all. It was made for shading or blending products but it packs on color, is great for concealer and is amazing for contouring the nose. This brush, along with the 109, are two brushes that will make your life so much easier. I have three of these as well and use them on every single job I go on!

I have tons and tons of makeup brushes but I always love trying new ones! When you have great brushes it makes your morning routine neater, faster and much prettier :)

Let me know what your favorite makeup brushes are!!

I hope this was helpful :)
