7 MUST Have Beauty Brushes in your Makeup Vanity
An artist cannot produce a masterpiece without the set of right tools. Whether you’re an artist, a chef or an architect you will never be able to replicate your idea without using the right set of tools. Similarly if you’re a MUA or even just a beginner, you need to invest in good quality makeup brushes that blend & apply makeup easily.
The eternal dilemma with shopping for brushes is that most of the time companies market a flawless face & relate it with makeup. People jump to the “add to cart” option whenever a boujee makeup brand releases a new collection but they will think twice before investing in a brush set no matter how nominally it is priced! People are willing to purchase a $45 foundation but have second thoughts when it comes to a $25 brush set (6-8 brushes)!
A good quality makeup brush set is not necessarily expensive & they last you for a solid time period hence be sure to invest in the right brushes.
This has to be one of the most used & adored brush in our entire vanity! And the best part is that it is a desi product from a local brush set. The beauty of this product is that it work with powder formulas & works beautifully for a sharp contour, to apply powder at the edges of the face & to sweep away the bake making it a multi-purpose staple! The brand definitely need to sell this brush separately
Now Real Techniques is another brand that is known for putting out quality makeup brushes intended for professional use. Blush is a must have in our vanity to give us that fresh & wide awake look hence a blush brush is a necessity. The RT Blush brush has synthetic bristles that have been given a tapered cut .The shape allows you to pick up an ample quantity of product & blend it evenly & seamlessly on the cheeks. It is fluffy, easy to clean & doesn’t shed hair.
Foundation streaks anyone? This is that one brush sent from the heavens that will never let that happen. The brush has a denser, flat head that will smooth out your foundation to give you a seamless & buildable coverage everytime. Another reason why we’d recommend it because it’s as good as a beauty blender but it’ll last you many light years more. Retails for $25 on the official website of Sigma Beauty.
This is a brush that I would recommend to all the brow lovers. If you like your brows arched & love making them bushy, we’re guessing that you’d already know about this one. First up the brush is created by Anastasia who is the brow queen & knows brows like no one else. Secondly the brush has an angled, tapered shape that draws the thinnest hair like strokes that gives it that extra effect. It can be used with brow pomade as well as powder formulas. We love to draw our cat wings with this one as well. on the other end we have a spoolie that brushes through the brow hairs to keep them in place. It retails for $18 on Sephora, be sure to grab this one on a sale.
Eco Tools is a drugstore brand which means it’ll be inexpensive! The full powder brush is designed with a large, dense, incredibly-soft head to evenly distribute and blend pressed powders for an everyday, matte look. It’s bigger which means you will be cover every corner of the face without the need of dipping into the product again & again. The handle is sturdy & light weight. Can be used with pressed as well as loose powders.
When it comes to good & affordable eye makeup brushes, BH Cosmetics has the bar set really high. There is one particular brush from the above mentioned brush set that is the highlight. The #101 brush is a fluffy, tapered brush that is perfect for blending in that transition shade on the eyes. It is fluffy enough to deposit pigment on larger surface of the eye & one doesn’t have to go back & forth again & again to ensure a flawless blend.
Morphe is another American Brand that made waves in the industry for making high quality brushes at drugstore price. Now the brush in focus is a natural haired brush that can be used for a variety of purposes. It is shaped a small shader brush with tightly packed bristles hence can be used to pat in pigment precisely on the eyes. The head of the brush is so small & precise that we personally like to use it to create cut crease looks & to clean the eyebrows with a concealer.
