My Top 10 Makeup Brushes
"The right tools are just as important as the makeup itself"
Surely I'm not the only beauty obsessed person, who has tons of makeup brushes, but always seems to come back to the old faithfuls. When I was 13, the only makeup brush I was aware of was my fingers. Foundation would be rubbed in with my fingers, my eyeshadow, blusher and bronzer applied with my fingers... which explains some of my old photos that haunt me on Facebook.
When I was about 15, I began noticing all of the amazing makeup brushes being used by different beauty gurus, and in particular seeing the popular launch of Real Techniques brushes. That's when I started building up my brush collection. At first, being 15 and no job it was hard; I had to rely on pocket money and savings to pay for my brushes, so I started at budget brushes. Coastal Scents 22 Piece Brush Set was a YouTube hit at the time, and at such a low price of $25 for so many brushes, I thought it'd be better value for money. The quality of this set surprised me, and still to this day I use the majority of the brushes from the original set which are still in amazing condition!! Following this, I started buying Real Techniques... to which I now own nearly every brush they have released. Sam and Nic have done absolutely amazing with RT and it continues to be one of the leading makeup brush brands in the drugstore.
My worst nightmare nowadays, is applying makeup without brushes... it actually turns my stomach at the thought (haha not literally)! I have a lot of makeup brushes now from many different brands that I do like to swap and change, just to give a different look to my makeup or if I'm bored of the same routine. However, I have unconditional love for these 10 brushes, they have never let me down and if you want to start an essential brush collection, these are all musthaves!
So that's them! Have you tried any of these? Also, If anyone has any suggestions of brushes that they swear by, or that I should try out, please let me know. I'm always looking for high quality tools to help perfect my makeup!
