BEAUTY 101: MY 10 FAVORITE MAKEUP BRUSHES – FACE

Today I want to show you my favorite makeup brushes of the past months and years. I always found it super useful to look at recommendations on blogs before buying makeup brushes, so here are my two cents. These brushes definitely earned their spot in my collection as all of them are high in quality and leave my face with a beautiful finish. So, here we go:

REAL TECHNIQUES CONTOUR BRUSH
This is my go-to brush for highlighter, either for powder or cream products. It is fluffy, not too big and it allows a feathery application. I use it for the usual areas: cheek bones, down the nose, cupid bow.

REAL TECHNIQUES STIPPLING BRUSH
This brush is amazing for cream products, I use it to apply cream-blushes. At the end, I give it a few last taps with my fingers. The brush makes it very easy to apply without spreading it all over the place.

MAC #129
I love the MAC #129 for its undeniable fluffyness. This brush applies my blush with a streak-free and  natural look. Although it sheds, this brush is everything once you put your blush on and blend it out. Even with high pigmented blushes, the results aren’t heavy looking, but amzingly natural.

ZOEVA 101 LUXE FACE DEFINER
My love for ZOEVA goes way back. This was my first ZOEVA brush that I bought back in 2009. I cleaned it about 2.443 times, but it still is one of my faves. I use it to bronze my face. It is so soft, it blends the powder beautifully and diffuses the color with ease.

REAL TECHNIQUES POWDER BRUSH
I love to warm up my face with this brush. It is big, it is fluffy, it is soft. All I need to apply my setting powder with. I also love to warm up my face with this brush. It picks up the right amount of powder and distributes it evenly.It is also big enough, so it does not take forever.

REAL TECHNIQUES DETAILER BRUSH
The Real Techniques detailer brush is a tiny flat brush with a tapered edge. I use it for highly-pigmented concealer and it works like a charme to fix precise areas on the face like the sides of the nose or corners of the eyes. I do not use it to apply lipstick though as in my opinion it is too pointy for that purpose.

H&M CONCEALER BRUSH
The H&M Concealer Brush is made of synthetic hair and I mainly use it to precisely apply concealer on my undereye area or to conceal blemishes. It lets you apply the product in an amount that you need. It is not too fluffy, so you can get great coverage. Its size is perfect to apply cream highlighter on the inner corner of your eyes or on the brow bone as well, which I sometimes do. Plus, super affordable!

ZOEVA 110 FACE SHAPE BRUSH
The ZOEVA 110 Face Shape brush is a compact, round brush. It works exceptionally well to blend cream contouring products. I tap the product into the hollow of my cheeks and blend, blend, blend. The result is an almost airbrushed contour along the cheekbone.

SIGMA 3DHD PRECISION
The 3dHD precision brush by Sigma is another brush I use to conceal. It has a great angle for areas that are smaller and harder to reach such as around the nose, mouth and underneath the eyes. The bristles are densely packed and I also use it for touch-ups around my lips (when wearing a darker lipstick) or on my eye-shadow.

ZOEVA 102 SILK FINISH BRUSH
This is my #1 brush. This multi-tasking brush is designed for applying and blending cream or liquid foundation or powder. I use it for foundation, CC-creams, moisturizer, self-tanner, to blend out blushes and bronzers or to apply setting powder. And this brush makes it easy to buff and blend out any streaks.
Although I love the beauty blender, I would always apply foundation first with this brush, as I can  really work the product into the skin and it wastes less product. Plus, it is great to build coverage, if you want to.

Do you have brushes you can’t live without? Let me know in the comments.
