Holy Grail Make Up Brushes

Hi guys! 🙂 Today I thought that I would share with you my top, can’t live without, holy grail make up brushes! 🙂  At the bottom of the article you will find a list with all the brushes that I mentioned. So, without further ado, let’s get started!!!

Face Brushes
For my complexion I use a total of 3 brushes and the Beauty Blender, which is a multitasker for me but I will get to that in a second.
For foundation, concealer and “baking” (to set parts of the face with loose powder, and let it sit for a few minutes before wiping the excess) I always reach for my trusty Beauty Blender. I use the rounded part to buff in my foundation, the pointy side to blend out my concealer and afterwards to set it with powder.
Moving on to bronzer, contour, blush and highlight, my top choices are the E.L.F make up brushes for two reasons : incredible price point (about 4 euro each) and amazing quality! For contour I use the E.L.F Small Stipple Brush which is a duo fiber that blends out the contour (powder or cream) like a dream! For my bronzer and blush I use the E.L.F Mineral Powder Brush (keep in mind that you can transform the purpose of your brushes however works best for you) which distributes a natural amount of product and is as soft as a dream! Lastly, for my highlight I use the E.L.F Small Tapered Brush which can be also perfect for setting the concealer under the eyes.

For my eyebrows I use the Real Techniques brow brush to fill them in with brow powder and then I use a flat definer Sephora brush to clean them with concealer and to make them as sharp as possible.

Eye brushes

For the eyes category I will narrow it down to 5 must haves. Starting of with the transition shade, the brush that I always use to achieve the most blended and clean look is the KIKO eyes 200 brush. For the deeper crease colors and also for blending I use either the Peggy Sage brush in the number 135146 or the Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush. For packing on eyeshadow on the lid, the most perfect brush for that I found it is the E.L.F professional eyeshadow brush ( get it, it’s only 1 euro :O ). The Must Have Smudge by Sephora is, like its name is saying, a must have. I use it to smudge out shadow on the lower lashline. Last but not least, the Accent brush by Real Techniques is the perfect little brush to do the inner corner highlight and at the end to tie all the look together!
