My Top 7 Makeup brushes I can't live without!

Hey Everyone,
I was doing the horrible job of washing my brushes and thought i would share with you the top 7 brushes i cant live without.All these brushes are great brushes, none of them shed on the face, they are all very sturdy and they are all very easy to wash.

Real Techniques By Samantha Chapman "Powder Brush"

I love this brush! its an all over powder brush, when i'm in a hurry i just get this big fluffy brush and get a quick powder finish setting all my makeup and i can use it for an all over bronzer also.It will surly cover your whole face in only a few brush strokes. Samantha Chapman brushes are all synthetic bristles are hand-cut and 100% cruelty-free.

Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman "Blush Brush"

I don't even use this brush for blush, i use it more for a light powder, bronzer or a easy contour. it is a very soft brush and is very easy to use for multiple uses.I especially love that it has a flat bottom so it can stand up on my vanity so i don't get it dirty with makeup etc.

Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman "Stippling Bush"

I use these two stippling brushes by Samantha Chapman and Furless Cosmetics to apply my liquid foundation, they both give me a great application, sometimes a little streaky but mostly great. The Real Techniques Brush has shorter dense bristles and the Furless brush has longer bristles but they both give the same effect and if one is dirty i have the other one to give me that airbrushed look.

This Bdellium Kabuki brush is an amazing brush! It buffs in my foundation flawlessly and gets great coverage all over the face, the Bristles are so so soft. These brushes are all vegan, soft synthetic bristles and are 100% cruelty free. Thanks to Lou at Little Wing Lou for recommending them to me :)

Blend Blend Blend! So important is most looks :) that's why I love Dean Nixons Blending Brush. It's made from natural bristles which makes it super soft and makes the application of shadows natural.

Eco Tools "Buffing Brush"

This Eco Tools Buffing brush is just as great as the Bdelluim kabuki brush, it has dense bristles which hold the liquid foundation nicely, and buffs it into the skin flawlessly.

Beauty Blender

One more to add to my must haves, has to be my beauty blender! It is so amazing, I blend out my concealer in a few taps and it helps put everything into place.

Hi Melissa. You've given me a great idea. My Eco Tools blush brush has been out of action for a while. I'm going to try it with powder like you do. Thanks for the tip!
