Long time no see (actually me write, you read). I’m sharing with you today my favorite makeup tools. I probably have around 25-30 brushes in total, but I love using only 7 of them (plus a sponge). I like the others too, don’t get me wrong, but these are my go to brushes.
Here they are!
- ZOEVA 227 Luxe Soft Definer – it’s the perfect eye brush for me! I can use it for a light wash of color on the lid, in the crease and for blending. I think you can tell how much I love it by the fact that the writing is rubbed off
- ZOEVA 228 Luxe Crease – I usually use this one when I want a soft crease or as a clean blending brush
- e.l.f. professional Eye Crease Brush – this is such a cheap brush but I like using it in the inner corner of the eye or to apply eyeshadow on the lower part of the eyes
- brush from theBalm Nude Tude palette – I mostly use the angled part either with a dark shadow or with a gel eyeliner. It works great with both
Real Techniques lash-brow groomer – it’s soft, it combs my eyebrows so fast and it feels nice when doing it. I also use it from time to time to comb my lashes after I applied a mascara that makes them look spidery. Careful not to stab yourself in the eye! The lash part is made out of metal and it’s very sharp
- e.l.f. Complexion Brush – it’s from the Studio line, so it’s a bit more expensive than first line from the company. Still it’s pretty inexpensive for a face brush and it’s perfect for powder or blush. It just takes the right amount when you gently tap it in the product
- Real Techniques setting brush – it’s soft and lovely to work with. I use it to set my concealer with powder and when I apply illuminator
- Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge – I never had an original Beauty Blender but for the moment I don’t feel the need. I think this sponge is very soft and it doesn’t eat too much product. Plus it gives a nice feeling when you use it on the skin and it leaves behind a luminous finish, which I love
Most of the time I keep these brushes in the pouch I got with the Real Techniques Eyes Starter Set, which is great, especially when you travel.
Also, all the brushes I talked about in this article ar great quality. Some of them I have for more than 3 years and are still going strong – no bristles falling out or brushes losing their shape.
That’s it for me and my favorite makeup tools. What do you like to use for applying makeup?
