Makeup Brushes

Today I'm sharing my makeup brushes.
I have learned over the years the benefit of 
using good quality makeup brushes.

Here is a roundup of my current favorite brushes.

 Foundation Brush

Concealer Brush

Blending Brush-Eye Shadow

The Blush Brush
Neiman Marcus

 Buff Powder Brush
Kevyn Aucoin

*I use this as my bronzer brush*
Neiman Marcue

Beauty Blender
This little thing is a game changer.
I LOVE it. 
I wish I started using it years ago.

Through trial and error, I have realized what brushes
work best for me.  For instance, I love using a brush to put on my foundation.
Many people disagree with that. However, I have found that for me, 
my foundation stays on much better when I use a brush to apply it.
Also, I use a blush brush for my bronzer. I find it to be easier for me to apply.
Whenever I used a bigger brush, it was bronzer overkill.

While I have tired cheaper brushes, I wasn't successful with them as 
I found most of them to shed as I was using them. They left me 
with little dark hairs all over my face. So annoying trying to get
them off your face.

With regular cleaning, a good brush can last years.
I find them to be a worthy investment.
I'm also a bit vain when it comes to makeup.

If my makeup doesn't look good, I don't feel good
and then it's just a bad day. ha.

What are your favorite brushes??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

  1. I'm all about a good concealer brush - I'm glad you like the sephora brand since it tends to be a bit easier on the wallet! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. i wouldn't call that vain i'd call it caring about how you look! which is a good thing! :) i use a brush to put on my eyeliner too which let me tell you, i would die without the perfect one i have from MAC (well bc pretty much all my makeup is from there). it's so important!

  3. I really need to upgrade my brushes, I'm guilty of Target brand and not taking good care of them. I gotta step it up. -Carly soak and simmer

  4. I need new brushes so bad. They are pretty gross. Thanks for sharing these! Come link up today!

  5. Great make up brushes post Mree!! I am in desperate need of some new ones this helps me so much I have a couple of the Mac brushes but I can see the benefit of many of these and can't wait to go to Sephora and some other beauty stores for some new ones! Thanks for the inspiration girl I hope you're having a marvelous Monday!

  6. I have a lancome foundation brush that I like a lot, and I love my beauty blender for sure!!!! I think the most important thing with brushes is cleaning them, you gotta keep them clean!

  7. I have the same concealer brush and LOVE it! <3

    It's time for me to replace some of my shadow brushes, I'm excited to find some new pretties!

  8. I love a good brush. I tend to stick to the Sonia Kashuk brushes though.

  9. i tried the beauty blender but i don't think it's for me. i personally hate putting on liquid with brushes, i prefer my hands (which i know lots of people disagree with lol but whatever we have to do what we like, you know?!) but i use the real techniques brushes for powder.

  10. Nice brushes! I'm very simple and only use 2 brushes...1 for bronzer/blush and 1 for eyeshadow but I do use the beauty blender for foundation and love it!

  11. You have great brushes! I try to invest in good brushes and take good care of them. I have never splurged on a Chanel though!

  12. I pretty much only use real techniques brushes! Need to check some of these out!

  13. I am SUCH an amateur when it comes to brushes. I think it's finally time for me to invest in a good blush brush, since lately I've been subjected to the dark brush strands staying on my face...not fun!

  14. i agree---sometimes it's just worth the investment!

  15. Brushes are such game changers. When I finally figured out and made the switch it was like a light switch. Finally you are getting the look that it should be! Those airbrush brushes from Sephora are my absolute favs!

  16. Oh yes the little hairs...ugh. I never tried a brush for a cream or liquid foundation but I have for mineral foundation. This brush from Chanel sounds excellent. I just may get this.

  17. I've used the blender before, but then I lost it. :( I'm currently using Bare Esceuntials brushes, and I really like those!

  18. Ive never ever used a beauty blender but have seen them used by so many beauty vloggers etc that I might jump on board!

  19. i love eco tools! the bristles are so soft.


Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you!
