My Makeup Brushes
I thought that within a couple of blog posts I would show you my makeup collection, (although there isn’t much to show). Today I thought I would share the makeup brushes that I use. I don’t own many, as the few that I have, are the only ones that I need. My brushes consist of one main brand, bareMinerals. I am hoping in time I can build on this small collection of brushes, and I’m considering purchasing some from Real Techniques, although the main problem there is the price, as they are quite expensive.
These are all of my makeup brushes. As I said I don’t have many, but these do the job just fine!!
This is the only one of my brushes that isn’t by bareMinerals. This one is by Urban Decay, and I didn’t actually individually purchase it, as it came with my Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow palette. I love this brush so much though!! It comes in so handy, as it has both a wider eyeshadow brush, and a thinner, tapered eyeshadow brush.
These are my other eyeshadow brushes. The tapered brush by bareMinerals is very similar to the one by Urban Decay, so if I knew previous to getting the Urban Decay palette, I probably wouldn’t have doubled up on my brushes. As well as this, I probably prefer the tapered brush by Urban Decay, as it is not so stiff. I find that my brush from bareMinerals will tug at the skin, and I am always self conscious when using it, as it is quite rough on the skin.
Whereas my other eyeshadow brush by bareMinerals is amazing! The soft focus brush is by far my favourite brush ever!! It can be used for so many eyeshadow situations. I find that it is so good for both applying colour over the whole of the lid, as well as focusing in on the crease and outer corner. Although, my favourite thing about this brush is its ability to blend my eyeshadow. As it is so soft, it doesn’t pull or tug at my lid. I just can’t praise this brush enough, and in my opinion, if you only wanted one brush for your eyes, this is definitely the one to go for!!
My last two brushes are my concealer and powder brushes. Both of these are also by bareMinerals. I use the max coverage concealer brush, and the flawless face brush.
It wasn’t too long ago that I began wearing more makeup. Before I would often attempt using makeup, but never liked the consistency and the feeling on my face, I definitely didn’t gel with liquid foundations and concealers, and they just put me off makeup altogether. Eventually I got back into using makeup, and decided to purchase bareMinerals powder concealer and foundation. I absolutely loved using it, and found it a complete lifesaver for me. This is the same time that I bought all of these bareMinerals brushes. Only a couple of months back, I got back into using my liquid foundation and concealer, and this time have had a much better experience with it, and have swapped my daily makeup routine for these again at the moment.
I used to use the max coverage concealer brush with my powder concealer, but just seem to use my hands with my liquid, (I know… not the best thing to do). I also don’t use a brush for my foundation. Although, I would use a brush if I had one. Te main reason that I don’t use a foundation brush is that haven’t got one currently, and that I am doing fine the way I am.
So those are all of my amazing makeup brushes that I love to use! I use the majority of these on a daily basis, and find them so great!! I would especially recommend the soft focus brush and the flawless face brush by bareMinerals!!
