|My multicolored makeup application arsenal.|
From left to right:
Real Techniques Essential Crease Brush - I use this brush so often that I should probably buy an extra one. It fits perfectly into my crease and blends out shadow like a dream.
e.l.f. Professional Blending Eye Brush - Although I used to use this brush for blending in my crease, these days I love to use it to apply my inner corner and brow bone highlight. It's the perfect shape!
Real Techniques Buffing Brush - This is essential for blending in my liquid foundation. I used to use a flat brush for foundation, but I found that a circular buffing brush like this one helps to create a more flawless finish.
Real Techniques Setting Brush - Perhaps I should have called this post "my Real Techniques collection." I just love the brushes from this brand! I use the "setting brush" to blend my highlighter into my cheekbones. It helps me achieve that subtle, luminous glow.
e.l.f. Professional Total Face Brush - The best thing about e.l.f. brushes is that they're only $1 and they really work. Sure, they don't compare to m.a.c. brushes, for example, but they do apply makeup well. I rely on this one to help me apply powder over my foundation.
Luxie 504 Large Angled Brush - This was an Ipsy discovery. At first, I tried it out as a bronzing/contour brush. However, I soon found that I prefer using it to apply my blush. It is the perfect size and shape to deliver a rosy flush to the apples of my cheeks.
Real Techniques Multi Task Brush - I love how big and useful this brush is. While I tend to use this brush to apply my bronzer throughout the hollows of my cheeks and on my forehead and neck, I could just as easily use it for blush or powder. It's so versatile!
Real Techniques Pointed Foundation Brush - I used to use my fingers to apply my concealer. Then I discovered this brush and I haven't looked back. It's small enough to blend concealer into even the tightest of spots, like around my nose or under my eyes. Plus, I like that it means less instances of me having to touch my face.
e.l.f. Professional Eye Shadow Brush - I actually have two of these brushes because I use them daily to apply my shadow. They are the perfect size for my lids. Plus, I can also use the top edge to blend shadow into my bottom lid waterline. Perfect for a smoky eye look!
Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush - This brush is my go-to for all my gel liner looks. It applies my liner smoothly and helps me achieve the upwards flick that I adore.
Those are all my go-to brushes! Which ones are your faves? Let me know in the comments.
