Favorite Brushes


I wanted to share some of my favorite makeup brushes today. I find brushes to be the key to a flawless application. These brushes are essential in the many looks I'm always creating. My brushes aren't the fanciest out there, but they get the job done.

Sonia Kashuk Multipurpose Brush

I use this stippling brush to apply my blush. It's an affordable brush that is soft and great for many uses. You can use it for foundation,bronzer, and blush. Since it's a stippling brush your getting a smooth finish. I purchased mine from Target. ($12.99)

Real Techniques Buffing Brush

I have a variety of foundation brushes, but this one is my go to. It buffs the foundation perfectly into my skin. Real Techniques has great quality brushes in my opinion. I feel like you get can get a medium to full coverage using this buffing brush. I wish they sold it separately, but it's part of a collection. I purchased mine from Ulta. ($17.99)

Real Techniques Contour Brush

This is another great quality brush from Real Techniques. This brush is soft and fluffy. I love how it's small and fits perfectly into the hallows of my cheeks. This blends my cream and powder bronzers nicely. This was purchased in a set from Ulta. ($17.99)

Bobbi Brown Cream Blending/ Blender

This brush is suppose to mainly be used for concealer and setting the under eyes. I prefer using it as an eye shadow brush. One side I have a flat brush and on the other side a blending brush. The flat brush is able to pick up creams and powders. This is a great quality brush. I feel like it changed how my eye looks would come out. The blending side is nice for blending out any harsh lines or edges. 

Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush

I received this in a Ipsy bag. I love how it's pink and quite soft. It has 100% synthetic bristles. I use this brush for high lighting my brow and packing shadow onto my eyelid. This can be purchased from the Elizabeth Mott website. ($10)

Luxie 205 Brush

This brush also came in a Ipsy bag. This brush also has synthetic bristles. It's an amazing quality brush for a low price. You get a soft tapered brush perfect for blending out your shadow. The brush is apparently coated with a antibacterial solution that keeps the brush clean and fresh. This can be purchased at Luxie Beauty. ($12.00)

What are some of your favorite brushes?

    1. Exactly! I feel like they do such a great job for being drugstore brushes. Aw, thanks for stopping by! :)

  2. I love the real techniques brushes that you showed! They have an angled contour or buffer brush that I love too. And I use a big stippling brush for blush too! I thought I was the only one who did that lol!!

    1. Ooo I'll have to check that angled contour brush out! I love a good contour lol. I was clueless when I bought the brush and didn't know it was for foundation lol. Good to know someone else uses a stippling brush for blush! :)

  3. Great picks! I use Real Techniques brushes every day! I especially love the Stippling Brush, Blush Brush, and Multi-Purpose Face Brush :)


  4. Great post! I love RT brushes! They work well and they're very affordable!
