Face Make-up Brushes


Although many make-up products can be applied well using fingers, good make-up brushes can make a huge difference in the application of certain products. What I found out recently, is that you no longer have to spend lots of money for brushes, (unless you are a pro make-up artist), because there are some worthy, inexpensive alternatives. Some of these happen to be brushes that I reach for on a daily basis.These are my current favorite face brushes:


1. Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. Like many other people, I fell for this one. This brush is perfect to blend cream and liquid foundation, cream blush and cream highlighter. Generous handle size, medium head size. Feels soft, but its Taklon bristles are very dense. It does not absorb the product. It is inexpensive, and you can find it at any ULTA (although it is sold out very often), and online, at iherb.



2. EcoTools Bamboo Bronzer brush. Great for powder products. You could use it for any powder, blush, and bronzer. Bristles are synthetic, but very soft and dense.This brush is similar to the EcoTools Retractable Kabuki, (in case you are among the folks who love that one), but in comparison, this one feels more sturdy because of its thick bamboo handle, and its bristles are more dense. It is also 100% eco-friendly, being made from all recycled materials. You can purchase it at Walmart, Target, and even online, at iherb.
