My Top 5 Makeup Brushes

I don't think Ive seen many Makeup Brush posts, I could be wrong but I've only seen a few. These brushes are also what I use on a daily basis, It was very hard to narrow it down. So lets begin..

Elf Stippling Brush 
 This brush can be used for foundation but I personally find it brilliant for cream blushes and bronzing, its the perfect size to apply on your cheekbones and its not super dense so it wont pick up too much product, its super soft too, its great that you can use a brush for more than one thing. Retails for £3.95 which you can't go wrong for.

Real Techniques Contour Brush & Buffing Brush 
This brush is from the set 'The Core Collection Kit' and I really do believe its worth buying the set just for the 2 brushes, the other 2 brushes aren't bad but I personally wont be using them,  Starting with the Buffing Brush this is great for foundation this is one of the brushes ill only use now, this buffs my foundation so well and makes it look so flawless and never makes my foundation streak. Now the Contour Brush I personally don't use this for contouring, i think this is great for blending in concealer, it fits perfectly under the eyes and blends really well and it super soft. Retails at £21.99.

Mac 134 
 This brush is great for powder, its so big, fluffy and soft, its great for when your in a rush just sweep it all over your face and your fully powdered. I find it much easier to clean than my other brushes but you wouldn't think that because its big, the only downfall is the price £40.00 which is actually ridiculous but lucky enough I got this for Christmas, but I think you could find much better brushes for half the price. 

Sedona Lace Synthetic Flat Top  
I'm also loving this brush for applying my foundation, I love how soft and easy it blends, my skin looks flawless every time I use this,  It quite hard to clean because of how dense it is but it doesn't shred. Love Love Loveeee it. It retails at $18.95 and in pounds that's roughly £11.07.

So there are my top 5 Brushes, I hope you enjoyed this post as I love seeing what every ones uses for their makeup. Definitely leave a comment telling me your favourite brushes Im always looking for more to try :)

  3. You've got to love Real Techniques! If you were thinking of trying something new, perhaps try the Cosmopolitan brushes? I've found them to be really good, and they're available in Superdrug which is super easy, plus they're cheap! xx
