Top Brushes For Starting Out

Hey girls & guys.

Sometimes trying to get your head around the different types of makeup brush out there can be a hard job especially if you are a newbie to makeup. Today I want to share with you some of my favourite brushes.

My top pick for a foundation brush would be the "F24" from Blank Canvas Cosmetics. In past years I have always used a flat top kabuki style brush from sigma but in 2014 I was converted to this round top foundation brush. It is the best brush I have ever used for foundation and makes apply it effortless. It leaves no brush strokes and I have had the most flawless looking foundation since using this brush. I highly recommend all brushes from BCC and you can buy the F24 here

Next brush is also from Blank Canvas Cosmetics and it is the "F40" brush. This baby is a smaller fluffier version of the F24 and I love this for applying my cream contour. It helps to blend out my contour so easily and blends it into my foundation perfectly. I love this brush so much it is one of my all time faves.

This brush is a new one for me and I love it to apply primer or my strobe cream with it. I especially love this brush to use on clients. I used to use my mac brush but I find the brush from "Face up to it cosmetics" gives me better control when working on a clients face. It is also super soft.

This small powder brush from Crown Brush is my all time favourite brush for setting your under eye concealer. It is so amazingly soft and I love to use this with my banana powder.

Again from Crown Brush is this gorgeous fluffy blending brush ( C441 ) that is a dupe for the MAC 217 and is perfect for eyeshadow and bending colours into the crease. I love how soft it is and gives a seamless blend to all eyeshadow. If you only could have one blending brush then this is my recommendation.

Last from Crown Brush is the eyebrow brush that I have had for years. It is a life saver when it comes to brows as it is double ended with a spoolie on one end and a angled brush on the other. It makes filling in your brows so simple as I usually find that part of my makeup more of a chore.

Last brush is from real techniques and it is the large blush brush. I am obsessed with this brush for my blusher and couldnt finish my makeup without it. It is so soft and the large shape of this brush makes blending your blush so easy. I also love the fact that the handle is pink :)

I hope you liked that post. This would be a great starter kit for anyone as it includes all brushes you need to create a beautiful look.
