My favourite makeup brushes

We all know, to achieve a flawless makeup look, you need good quality makeup brushes.  However, this doesn’t mean you need to go out and buy the most expensive brushes out there, or the most well known, as they aren’t always necessarily the best.  Good quality brushes can have more than one use, whether it be used for foundation application, to powder application.   It’s all about experimenting and figuring out what works for you and the look you are trying to achieve.  There is no right or wrong, it’s all about having fun and trying new and different ways to apply your makeup to see what works for you.

FOUNDATION BRUSHES 

Beauty Blender
Ok, this isn’t a brush but it has revolutionised the way I apply foundation, so much so, I hardly ever use anything else to apply my foundation.  You will not get a more flawless look than with the beauty blender.

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
So this is a brush and is my number one brush to apply foundation.  It will never leave a streaky finish which I find a lot of foundation brushes do which become’s really annoying.  I find you have to go back in and try and smooth out the streaks with either your fingers or another brush.  Way too much hassle for me.  You will not get this problem with the Expert Fact Brush, the quality is amazing and…it’s not expensive at all.

Over the years, I have collected and used a number of foundation brushes but these are the only two I ever use now.

My updated daily makeup routine

 

 

Set of professional make-up brushes and cosmetic

My makeup routine changes throughout the year depending on the season, the condition of my skin and current trends, although with my daily routine,  I don’t tend to follow trends as I like to keep my makeup quite neutral and light during the day.

What I usually end up switching up is my foundation.  Some of you may know, I used to be a MAC foundation girl for years until about two years ago.  I am not sure if my skin just changed, but I found that the foundation just  wasn’t sitting right on my skin and almost sliding off before the end of the day.   Since changing my foundation brand, I now also like to change up my other products throughout the year.  So, let’s get straight into it, that’s what you are here for right?
