I am totally obsessed with beauty tools, foundation brushes in particular. It's amazing how a brush can either make your skin look flawless or as streaky as feck. I have tried the lot, and have settled on a few favourites, this may look like a small amount of brushes to own for a beauty brush junkie, but, let me assure you, I own these brushes in duplicate and triplicate.
What beauty blogger worth their salt hasn't got at least one Real Techniques brush in there collection. I have them all and I am now lusting after the new Duo Fibre brushes. I love the Buffing Brush and the Expert Face Brush for applying foundation. The small heads ( probably not called heads) are perfect for when you taking your time to create a flawless base.
Elf & Urban Decay
The Elf Powder Brush is the newest member of the crew. I love this brush, although its purpose is for powder, it works exceptionally well for liquid foundation, and its large enough to sweep over the face and get the job done in seconds. My Urban Decay Optical Blurring Brush is incredible for applying foundation. I use it in either a stipple or a buffing motion. You can read my full review HERE
Royal & Langnickle & Sigma
These are my ABSOLUTE favourite type of brush. The flat top kabuki. The Royal & Langnickle (what a name) I picked up at the Irish Beauty Show last march. I loved how soft and dense the Goat Hair brush is, and I'm only raging I didn't pick up more. Now everyone knows the Sigma F80, I keep this brush for "good wear" which means it comes out when I'm going out somewhere nice and need a base that's perfect. These are both great for buffing and stippling and also great for applying mineral powder foundation.
Do you use any of these brushes?
