Hi everyone!

I don’t know about you, but I’m a brush junkie! I love my makeup brushes and I have so many because I believe a good brush can last forever and can make almost every product work.

All my brushes are from Real Techniques, Mac, Zoeva and Nilens Jord (a Danish cosmetic brand). I decided I wanted to share my favorite brushes for creating every look.

Face Brushes

My powder brush is a big fluffy brush and it was actually the first “expensive” brush I got and I still use it every day for my powder. I think it’s important that a powder brush is big and soft.

My second brush is the Real Techniques blush brush, I love this brush for so many reasons! The brush is good for many different things because of the tapered end. It can be used for powder, it’s good for a soft contour because of the end, it’s also great for blush again because of the end and it’s actually good for finishing off with a highlight. This brush is also really soft, so definitely worth investing in!

Real Techniques buffing brush is just amazing for foundation, I don’t even know how I survived before I got it!

Zoeva 110 face shape brush is brilliant to push concealer into the skin around the places where you need some extra coverage and I think the bigger version Zoeva 102 Silk Finish would be brilliant for foundation.

Eyes Brushes

My Mac 217 was the first ever Mac brush I got and again I don’t know how I survived without it. I don’t feel like this brush needs much explanation, it’s so good for everything especially applying eyeshadow and blending!

Real Techniques base shadow brush is so good for applying eyeshadow and blending, I also really like this brush for cream products because of the synthetic bristles. I think I use this brush every time I do an eye look. 

Real Techniques crease brush is the best brush I have ever tried for under eye concealer, I just love this brush!

My Mac 209 is really good for applying eyeliner and I think if you like to wear winged eyeliner an eyeliner brush is necessary. I don’t own the Mac 210, but I have tried it and it’s really good as well, so look into that eyeliner brush too.

Which brushes are your favorite?
