My Favourite Makeup Brushes


 Hey guys so I'm really excited to post about my fave makeup brushes (a bit sad I know).
Now before I explain why I like each one and where they're from I want to say that the brushes in the picture look a little dirty (especially the handles) for some reason the bottom of two of my brushes have melted, I think maybe accidentally from a straightener.. whoops! But anyways I did clean them A day or so ago, so they're not dirty! And no I do not wash my brushes everyday " nobody got time for that!"

From left to right:

1. ELF professional bronzing brush - I use this mainly to apply blush when I want it quite pigmented. When I originally bought this it was meant to be for contouring but I can't contour. Weep.

2. Real Techniques Buffing Brush - I use this for foundation and it's the best brush I've ever tried to apply it. This is great for any sort of foundation (including mineral powders)

3. MAC 187 - I originally bought this for apply bronzer and still use it for that purpose! This brush is very multipurpose because I can also use this to apply foundation or blush. YAY.

4. Real Techniques Blush Brush - This is called a blush brush, but I definitely do not use it for that. This is a great brush to apply powders such as mineral skin finish natural from MAC.

5. MAC 266 -  I use this brush to apply powders over eyeliner to intensify it or for applying eyeshadow under the lashline. Lots of people use this brush for eyebrows, but I rarely do my eyebrows and if I do I use the brow kit from Benefit.

6. MAC 150 - Ahhh this is the latest addition to my fave brushes! For me this is the perfect brush to apply blush (try saying that out loud, but of a tongue teaser haha) This applies the product evenly, the only negative is that it's real hair. (costing over £30)



OK, so they are my favourite brushes!! I of course own more brushes but I don't think they're worth mentioning in this post! (If you want a brush collection don't hesitate to request ;) )

What are your fave brushes???

Love Laura xxx

  4. I have to say I'm very envious of all your brushes! I have a Revlon contour one which works really well, but the only other is a stippling brush I got online somewhere.. it's not the best though, could do with some MAC ones! Are they worth the money? :-)
