All About Makeup Brushes

I am currently on the hunt for some new makeup brushes. As a makeup artist, I  have acquired lots of brushes over the years and they have done me well. I will definitely be keeping some of the brushes in my kit, but others are falling apart and need to be replaced. I have been doing some research before I buy and here is what I’ve found, click the pics to shop!

On the Hunt For:

One thing I am on the hunt for are some really great eyeshadow brushes that blend well. Natural hair brushes typically work better than synthetic for this.  If you want to understand the difference between the two, check out the blog post here.

All of these would be used for the crease of the eye and for blending and shading. The one by Hourglass is the only one that is not natural hair. I like the dome shaped brushes for applying more pigment and the larger crease brushes for blending.

Really interested in this blush brush. Again, natural hair and looks very soft for easy powder application!

These are the brushes from my current kit that I will keep:

I’ve used this foundation brush from Mac for years and it has never failed me. I apply foundation all over face and then take a beauty blender to really blend it all in!

The same goes for this concealer brush. It is small enough to get all around the under eye and any other problem areas!

Both of these brushes are great for lash line precision, specifically under the lower lash line.

If you are looking to start a brush kit or just make a new one inexpensively. Try one of these kits!

  1. I just bought the Armani brush, I love their products but I don’t think this is worth the price! Surratt has beautiful brushes and Tom Ford.

  2. Kelly, have you tried the Bobbi Brown Face Blender brush? If not, I definitely recommend it. I have a crazy amount of brushes but always go back to using this one for everything face/related, i.e. powder, blush, bronzer.
