Top 5 Holy Grail Brushes
Narrowing my favourite brushes down to just 5 was a pretty difficult decision, but I eventually decided that if all my brushes were to be thrown away, these are the 5 I would pick up straight away.
- Sephora Airbrush Foundation Brush #55 - I got this in America last year after seeing Amelia Liana using it, and I fell in love. It isn't as dense as the RT Buffing Brush so I've found it to be better for lighter foundations, but it really does blend like a dream. The bristles are so soft and I quite like the long, slim handle as it adds a bit of luxury to my day-to-day routine.
- Real Techniques Detailer Brush - I generally use this for one job only and that's adding a bit of concealer under my brows to tidy them up. This is especially useful if you need them doing as the concealer helps to hide any stray hairs. I generally use this with Benefit's Boiing Concealer.
- MAC 208 Brush - This is my holy grail eyebrow brush. I originally wanted the 266, but as that was out of stock, I went for this one. It's super thin which makes it great for precise application. I usually use this with the Anastasia Brow Pomade and it does a great job at helping to shape the brows.
- MAC 217 Brush - Do you ever see these types of posts without this brush included?! I don't know what my makeup application was like before this brush came into my life. I've had it for a good 2 years and it's still going strong. I use this with any eyeshadow and for a quick sweep over the lid, or more precise application in the crease.
- Real Techniques Contour Brush - The last choice was a difficult one, so I'd say this is interchangeable with the RT Duo-Fibre Contour Brush too. I use this pretty much every time I use contour as I find it fits under my cheekbone perfectly and applies just the right amount of colour. It's also fluffy enough for blending too.
