My Favorite Make-Up Brushes!

Hello everyone! Isn’t it amazing what great make-up brushes can do for your make-up? I can never help myself from buying a new brush they are just so fresh and pretty! So today I thought I would share with you a few of my favorite brushes. Now I don’t know if I necessarily use these brushes the right way they are supposed to be used but they work for me pretty well so I thought I would share them with you. 
I do have a range in brushes ranging from more high end M.A.C. brushes to moderate price brushes from Real Techniques. So lets get started!

  1. The Real Techniques Contour Brush: Now this brush was made for contouring but I have started using this brush for foundation. I like it because the bristles are rounded at the end which makes it perfect for getting the foundation blended all over your face. It can fit into the little parts of your face like the side of your nose or around your eyes.
  2. The Real Techniques Buffing Brush: This brush is made for buffing which I’m not sure exactly what that is! So I just use it for my powder. I love this brush because it is dense enough to give great coverage! And it is so soft!!
  3. The Real Techniques Blush Brush: For once I’m using the right brush for the right make-up. This is a great brush because it has a really light touch for applying blush not too strong and blending gently into your skin. 
  4. The M.A.C. 100 Brush: I love this angled contour brush. It has really soft bristles and is perfect for both contouring and highlighting.
  5. The M.A.C. 224 Brush: I love this brush for blending my eyeshadow as well as applying highlighter to under my brow line.
  6. The M.A.C. 212 Brush: I use this brush for doing a smoky eyeliner along my lash line.
  7. The Nickak New York Blending Eye Shadow Brush: I love using this for blending smoky looks in the crease of my eye.
  8. The Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Brush: I just love using these brushes in general for whatever eye shadows I’m using. It’s super nice quality and blends the eyeshadows really beautifully.
What're your favorite make up brushes?
