Let’s face it, unless we are blessed with perfect skin, and believe me there are those who are, most of us have flaws and having some choice makeup brushes will work wonders to give you that same look. Here are my top 10 brushes that I feel every woman should have.
1. Eye Shader Brush by Clinique – This brush runs $23 , great for sweeping your eye shadow color choices and blending for a smooth look.
2. Stiff Dome Brush – If you looking for the quality of a Mac brush at a cheap price then go for the Makeup Geeks which runs about $8 at Amazon.
3. Pencil Brush – Used to soften pencil liners that are typically applied to top and bottom lashes, also use to add eye shadow to line the eyes. This brush sells for about $12 if purchasing it from Sigma.
4. Soft Dome Brush – I found this one at Real Technique with a low price of $10.For an even application of your powders and minerals you can look for smooth results with high definition.
5. Bent Liner Brush – Sonia Kashuk offers a very affordable brush at about $6 through Target. This brush offers dramatic definition and will deliver a smooth and straight line every time.
6. Duel Ended Lash Brush – by Lancome Paris, is available in synthetic as well as natural-bristled, at about $32.50, it is truly a versatile brush and a perfect choice for shadows and powder as well wet or dry products.
7. Angled Contour Brush – Once again Sonia Kashuk comes through with another affordable brush thru Target for about $10. Easily used for dusting and applying thin layers it’s a great addition.
8. Cheek highlighter Brush – A favorite of mine is this medium sized brush its natural bristles offer only the best in application methods. At $12, add it to your collection if the opportunity presents itself.
9. Foundation Stippling Brush – the Makeup Geek collection knew they had a jewel with this brush. At $17, it is the ideal way to cover more areas while giving you the control you want. This brush is made of synthetic fibers.
10. Flat Foundation Brush – Flat Foundation Brush – A synthetic brush that looks natural and will release the product better will give you as they say “flawless” foundation look. Cover FX sells this one for $38.
There is no one brush for all needs in the life of a woman. We need a hundred just to get out of bed each day. With these choices, you will look your best in the least amount of time.
