I’m excited to finally get this post up to share affordable makeup brushes that continue to help me achieve a flawless application. Needless to say, I don’t often use the word “favorite” with brushes since I’m always looking for new brands to try. But, let’s be honest, I LOVE all the ones I’m sharing with you today. Naturally, the first two brushes I bought were-MAC, we all have one MAC brush, till this day they are still in my collection. Also in my collection, you will find more face brushes than any other brush. While I enjoy creating looks like this one, my go-to look is always about my base, a healthy looking base with loads of mascara and a bright lipstick. Who’s with me?
Now, the title of this post is 6 brushes but to be clear the Real Techniques brushes are a collection set. A set worth buying if you want to try several of their brushes.
Lets get to it…@realtechniques I love your products! Click & Tweet!
Liquid Foundation Brush (LUXIE Rose Gold Flat Angled Blender Face 538 $18)-I attended a beauty event (Beautycon NYC) about two weeks ago-determined to find a kabuki brush. Well, I found it! This kabuki-angled brush by LUXIE is the perfect foundation brush, extremely soft and the angled part also helps me blend in my concealer. I look forward to purchasing more LUXIE brushes in the future!
Powder Foundation, Bronzer, Blush, Contour (Real Technique Core Collection Brush Set $17.99)-Real techniques is a great brand we all love to use. Its affordable with amazing quality brushes, these brushes will get the job done right. The specific set I own comes with four, you can find it here. The larger buffing brush is great to apply any liquid foundation, it doesn’t leave any streaky lines, so you get a flawless application. The contour brush blends in your liquid or powder bronzer beautifully. Also great to apply cream blush. These brushes are multipurpose-which is another reason I truly enjoy using them.
Double Ended Brush ( Crown Brush C476 Crease Duet $6.99)- this brush arrived at my doorstep in one of my Ipsy subscription goodies a long time ago. I love using the larger side to set my concealer with a translucent powder. It also works well to apply and set your eye-primer. The smaller tip is great! It works perfectly to apply highlight in the inner corner, eyebrow bone and to blend eye shadow under the eyes. It’s easy to wash and the bristles do not shed at all.
Stippled Brush ( Morphe Duo Fiber Foundation G22 $14)- a stippled brush is essential to have in your makeup stash. The purpose of this particular brush is to blend in foundation but of course I’m a rebel and use it for something different. After applying foundation, bronzer, blush and highlight, I blend in the products to diminish any harsh lines. If you have a heavy hand and apply way too much blush this is great to blend that out. I’ve had this for two years and it is still in great condition.(You can also get an ELF stippled brush for only $4 dollars here)
Blending eye shadow brush (Crown C330 Blending Crease $4.29)– I don’t wear eye shadow too often but when I do this C33O one by Crown brushes helps apply my crease color perfectly. I love how easy it blends the color without having me press to hard on my crease. This one is also easy to clean and it doesn’t shed any bristles.
I couldn’t forget the beauty blender as I know we love that little spounge! I use the Real Technique’s one since it does the same job as the original beauty blender. You can find it here.
