My Favourite Makeup Brushes #2

favourite makeup brushes zoeva real techniques morphe anastasia beverly hills

I did a “My Favourite Makeup Brushes” post way back last year and although all those brushes are still in daily use, there are a few more that I use regularly so I thought I would do a little update!

I really didn’t like this brush to begin with and it sat unloved in my brush pot because I found it left a streaky finish with my usual liquid foundations. That all changed when I got the Vincent Longo Water Canvas Crème-to-Powder foundation* recently. I found the sponge that came with the foundation didn’t give me enough coverage and my usual fail safe Beauty Blender had the same problem so I dug around for this and it works perfectly! It helps build up coverage and it’s so easy to work into the skin because the bristles are so tightly packed.

This is a brush that I used to use daily about 3 years ago for blush until I felt it was putting a little too much blush on my cheeks and I switched to an angled blush brush (how many times can I say blush and brush in a sentence). Nowadays, I much prefer this as a bronzer brush and I love it with NARS Laguna and Charlotte Tilbury Bronze in particular!

As someone who has a tendency to be a little heavy handed with blush this brush is a godsend for blending! If I have gone overboard it does such good job of helping to fade it a little and make my blush look more natural!

With my fear of highlighter, this brush means that anytime I apply it, it’s subtle exactly how I like it! The brush is very soft and I would prefer the bristles to be a little stiffer but it does the job and it didn’t break the bank!

I've been using this brush to highlight my inner corner and brow bone and really like it! It’s quite stiff and allows you to be quite precise too so is great for applying the likes of the Makeup Geek foiled eyeshadows all over the lid!

This has replaced my beloved RT angled shadow brush as my preferred eyeshadow blender brush now! It is the perfect size and just makes blending so easy and I now have three of these babies! I also have a full review of the set these last two brushes came in here!

This brush makes applying Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade a doddle! It’s quite a stiff angled brush with synthetic bristles and it gives such a fine line it makes it so easy to apply hair like strokes through my brows! I love that it has a spoolie on one end too which makes it perfect to travel with!

So that’s my updated favourite brushes! I have to add that all these brushes wash up really well even though they are from different brands and I haven’t noticed any of them shedding which is another bonus!

As you are reading this I’m on holiday for my birthday (which is tomorrow!) but I’ll be doing my best to keep up with comments so do leave me one below and let me know if you have any of these brushes and what do you think of them!

  7. Why oh why I have not picked up RT blush brush yet? I know it's a huge favourite of many but I somehow kept overlooking the brand.

  17. I love RT brushes, they are affordable and last for a long time! I am also heavy handed with application, that's why I don't really like extra pigmented products, I don't like turning myself into a clown :) I hope you're having a great day and spoiling yourself :) Happy birthday!

  25. (Apologies if this has already been sent, but my laptop had a spazz so not sure if it posted so I'll try again haha) Great post! It's good to see what brushes you have recommended as some brands and brush styles I hadn't heard of, I love real techniques as they are really good quality and lasted me for ages, I've only recently got my first ever zoeva brush which was a buffer brush so can't wait to try that as I always hear good things about them, thanks for sharing your favourites and recommendations, I can keep it as a reference for next time I'm after some new ones :D

  26. The Zoeva 102 Silk Finish Brush looks so pretty! I really love brushes like this for a full coverage effect. I have the smaller version of this and it works great for my under eye concealer. I think I'll have to get some more Zoeva brushes asap lol. I also have the Real Techniques Duo Fibre Face Brush. I really like to use this when I have a pigmented bronzer. I hope you're having an amazing holiday Danielle. Also happy belated birthday, I hope that you got loads of make-up!!:D xx
