BRUSHES YOU NEED IN YOUR MAKEUP BAG...RIGHT NOW!
I'd have to say I have around 200 makeup brushes. I purchase and blend and blend and clean and blend and clean and blend and blend more. Ha. As you can imagine, it comes with the territory. I am ALWAYS on the hunt to find my next favorite, cannot.live.without makeup brush!
Needless to say, like a mechanic cannot repair cars without tools, we cannot apply our makeup without them either! I can make an exception here or there, but if you're still applying your foundation with your hands, I hope you will go ahead and schedule a Glam School session with me...just saying!
Anywho, I have six of my favorite brushes that I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT when it comes to applying professional makeup... and you need to have these in your makeup bag, ASAP!
This tapered brush is a perfect eyeshadow blending brush, essential for any eye look. If you do not yet own a fluffy blending brush, here's your sign. It softly buffs out harsh lines or applies your transition shade flawlessly into the crease.

Perfect brow brush...say no more! I am OBSESSED with the larger size of the angled bristles. Personally, I do not love a teeny tiny, little brow brush. It's also SUPER convenient to be able to flip around and have the spoolie to brush out brow hair on the other end. And it's $5...so there's that!

This is the perfect hybrid brush to stipple and blend concealer under eyes or detailed areas of the face, like spot concealing or blending around the nose. It's a mini angled foundation brush! :) This was a random find and is a concealer-blending staple in my kit!

If you're looking for another amazing brush with multiple uses, this cute pink one is for you! I received my first Luxie 660 in a BoxyCharm box and I knew I had to order for my kit! It's the perfect brush to softly set under eye concealer with translucent powder or apply highlight to the high points of the face.

I love how the bristles on this duo fibre brush gently sweep on blush. You can also use this brush to buff and swirl on loose and pressed powder, but I have found that with the size and texture of the bristles, it applies a perfect pop of pigment to the cheeks!
SHOP: MAC 187
This is described as a large powder brush, but I use it for bronzer or for a quick + blown out contour of the cheekbones. It's a heavy, quality brush with dense bristles, but it's still super soft!
SHOP: SIGMA F20
Don't forget that your brushes need to be CLEANED!
Don't keep swirling old makeup and bacteria onto your beautiful canvas with a dirty brush! I would suggest 1-2 weeks between washes....and I wash the brushes for my kit after or in-between each client. Try the SONIA ROSELLI TIGER'S EYE BRUSH SOAP!
Conditions, kills bacteria and cleans all-in-one!
