Makeup brushes are so important for application to create a flawless face of makeup. I’ve found my five perfect brushes that I use daily for my signature look. If I’m without one of these brushes I do feel a panic starting to rise in me! I thought I’d let you in on my favs!
Real Techniques Buffing Brush: I never ever got on with those old flat foundation brushes, no matter how much I tried to get an even, blended base, I always ended up straky and feeling cakey. This brush however changed everythaang. This buffs my foundation perfectly into my skin, leaving it even, blended and looking as natural as can be. I need a back up of this as I adore it so much.
Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Contouring Brush: This is the newest in the bunch but it has been a permemant staple in my handbag since getting it. This brush picks up the perfect amount of powder or cream product (not too much) which allows me to create a gorgeous contour of my cheekbones. I also use this to apply normal blusher and it also works a treat.
Royal & Langnickle Smudger Brush: As you know smoky eyes are my signature look and this baby is what allows me to get that effortlessly smudged look underneath my lower lash line. I pick up a darker eyeshadow with the brush and gently sweep it underneath my lashes to build up a smoke – I adore it.
Real Techniques Eyeshadow Brush: Another brush which is a permanent fixture in my bag. The hairs on this allow me to pick up just enough product to apply a good amount of eye shadow and allows me to blend it out in the same application.
Crown Brushes Angle-Liner & Spoolie: I picked this up at IMATS 2012 and use it daily to comb through and fill my brows in. It's perfect!
As with all brushes, to make them last longer then do treat them well and give them the occasional wash. You can read my post on how I was all of my brushes here - http://www.katiesbeautyblog.com/2013/07/how-to-wash-makeup-brushes.html.
