My Most Used Make Up Brushes

Having the right tools to apply your make up can make the world of difference, and you don't always need to spend a lot of money on them either! It's important to keep your make up brushes in good condition, by washing them once every few weeks and keeping them in a tidy case that isn't covered in makeup.

I've picked my most used and favourite make up brushes to share with you, you may have already noticed I have a few Real Techniques brushes. But I also own a few unusual brushes too...

My first ever Real Techniques brushes was the Core Collection, aimed at applying foundation and other base products. The most used brush from my collection is the Buffing Brush, which I mainly used for liquid and powder foundation. I find this brush to so easy to blend liquid foundation into my skin, making it look effortless and completely blended. It's a fairly soft brush so I don't feel like I'm attacking my face with a hard brush!

Next up are two brushes from Nic's Picks Limited Edition Set (full review here) The Cheek Brush is the perfect fluffy brush for applying blusher and highlighter, as its round shape fits perfectly across my cheeks and the pointed edge works really well for highlighter too. The Eyeliner Brush isn't actually used for eyeliner in my collection, but I can imagine it's pretty good for that as well! I use this brush mainly for applying my eyebrow powder, because the angled shape is fab for mimicking eyebrow hairs.

To apply my gel eyeliner, I use the No7 Precision Eyeliner Brush which is teeny tiny! It's a small rounded brush which provides easy application and precise lines. Because of its size and compact bristles, it means there's more control and hopefully less crazy eyeliner flicks! 

I don't know whether you've noticed at MAC make up stores before, but they have tons of spooley brushes to brush through eyebrows and eyelashes when applying makeyp on you. One time I visited they gave me a handful of these, so now I use them to de-clump my mascara eyelashes and keep my eyebrow hairs in place too. I found a similar style from Superdrug and Revlon.

Lastly but by no means least, is my Cosmopolitan Blend Perfection Sponge. I bought this years ago, before sponges were sold by the big retailers and use it to apply my foundation and concealer. Just wet the sponge and squeeze out excess water, then use the round end to apply foundation and the tipped end to blend in my under eye concealer. I do love this sponge, but I think it's now time to try a new brand!

What are your favourite makeup brushes? Any brands I should try out?
