Brushes for the face are an essential tool when applying make-up. If you have the funds for high end make-up brushes then great, but if not is it possible to get quality for an affordable price? I think so, and here are five of my favourites.
The Topshop Blusher Brush is my first choice for blusher. Apart from the fact that I am obsessed with the pink fluffy tip of the brush, it is the perfect size and shape for applying a flush of colour to my cheeks. I have a few Sedona Lace brushes, and the Synthetic Small Round Dome 217 brush is the only one that has survived being washed repeatedly. The eyeshadow blending brushes have become a little scratchy, and are not my favourites. However, this little dome brush is excellent for blending out concealer under the eyes, and sometimes I use it for setting my concealer.
For affordable beauty accessories Real Techniques offer some of the best, in my opinion. The RT Powder Brush is gorgeous; it is so soft and fluffy, and makes applying powder a most pleasant sensation. For highlighting, I use the Contour Brush, because it is the perfect shape for applying some glittery loveliness to the high points of the face. If I am a bit heavy handed with the blusher and highlight (this happens frequently) then I will use the soft and dense Buffing Brush to diffuse it slightly.
These are my top five face brushes, they are all affordable and have retained their shape and texture even after washing. Although the range isn’t huge, I do love Real Techniques for affordable, quality make-up tools. I adore Morphe’s eyeshadow brushes, and I will be choosing some of their face brushes next, as soon as my bank balance will allow it.
