FAVOURITE BRUSHES.

MY FAVOURITE FACE & EYE BRUSHES. 

Hi! Today I'm showing you my favourite brushes that I like to use when doing my makeup. I'm a firm believer that brushes don't need to be expensive to do a great job, so most of these are pretty affordable.



POWDER: XO BEAUTY POWDER BRUSH + LUXIE SMALL CONTOURING BRUSH.



These brushes are good for powder because they're dense. The brush on the left is the best for all over face powder because its big and can pack a lot of product on. The brush on the right I use for smaller areas and also to clean up areas e.g. under my contour. 



BRONZER: MORPHE E3 BRUSH.



I like this bronzer brush because it's big but it's also slightly tapered. I don't have a very large face so using brushes that are too big can make the product go everywhere and look a little sloppy.  This brush is also fluffy so blends the product out while you're applying it.


BLUSHER: REAL TECHNIQUES BLUSH BRUSH.



I don't use blush too often but when I do I like to use brushes which are fluffy but also tapered. You don't want blush to end up in too general an area (like you do with bronzer) so getting a brush which will place the product nicely is important. 


CONTOURING: MORPHE MB35 BRUSH.



With contouring brushes I look for something a lot smaller, usually slanted so you have more control over the placement of the product. Additionally, this brush is quite dense so you can pack product on, precisely but also blend it out at the same time. 


HIGHLIGHTING: MORPHE M510 BRUSH.



This is just the perfect highlighter brush. A lot of people like fan brushes to apply highlighter but I prefer brushes like this, for me they're more precise. They also put enough product on so that it shows up but doesn't pack it on so that it looks like a shiny stripe on your face. 


CONCEALER: MORPHE.



 A lot of flat concealer brushes are similar to this one but this is just the one I prefer. I use this for concealer, priming my eyelids, cleaning up around my lips and my eyebrows.


PRECISE DETAIL: MORPHE R43 BRUSH.



This brush is great for detail work such as cut creases or packing colour onto the eyelid. It's very dense and the bristles don't move around too much meaning that the colour/ product stays where it's put. 


BLENDING: ZOEVA 220 LUXE CREASE BRUSH + MORPHE R37 BRUSH.





Blending brushes are so important for doing eye looks so finding blending brushes that work for you is very important. These two are my favourite. They're fluffy and soft but also tapered so that the product stays where it's placed. They also blend the product out perfectly. My absolute favourite out of the two is the Zoeva brush but its slightly more expensive than the Morphe one. 



what are your favourite brushes?
