I have so many brushes for my make-up. I have my full professional set from LA Creative, I have my travel set of MAC brushes and then I have plenty of individual brushes that I have picked up over the years. So I got to thinking what brushes I could actually not live without.
1. Foundation brush
I hate applying my foundation with my hands (unless it is MAC face and body!) so I always use a brush. The type is your choice. I prefer a flat foundation brush but many people prefer a stippling brush. I have been using a flat brush for years so I think the reason for my preference is probably an old habit!
Which do you prefer?
I used to never contour and not it is a must in my make-up routine. Spednign 5 minutes contouring can completely change your face shape and I find a contour brush essential for this step.
I love my LA Creative one.
Being a fan of gel liner, I always apply eyeliner with a brush. I prefer to use a small angled brush but many people like to use a flat brush or a pointed tip. You can also use this brush to fill in your brows or lips! Just make sure to clean it each time! What type of brush do you use?
I always use powder to set my make-up and I love my big fluffy powder brush to apply it with. I also use this to apply a little bronzer to my neck or chest should I need it.
I love to use a flat eye shadow brush to pack on eye shadow. It really helps you to build colour and avoid excess fallout caused from a sweeping motion.
The brush I cannot live without. It is so easy to create amazing smokey eye looks once you have a fluffy blending brush. Eye make-up looks amateur when you can see the lines of colour so get blending to give yourself that professional look!
