I collect more makeup than I do brushes and I think the main reason is that I’m really happy with a handful that I use very often, if not daily. Today I want to run through what I think are must have’s!
One. Sonia Kashuk Precision Pencil Brush No 31; Perfect for adding shadow along the lower lash line or concentrating very dark color on the outer corner or crease.
Two. IIID Foundation Brush by Maskcara Cosmetics; Fantastic for applying cream blush! The other end is great for applying cream foundation around the nose or in hard to reach areas of the face. It’s also fantastic for applying a cream concealer.
Three. Sonia Kashuk Blusher Brush No 02; This is flatter than the other blush brush and I like this for highlight OR contour in powder form.
Four. Sonia Kashuk Synthetic Crease Shadow Brush No 08; My favorite brush for applying a darker shadow to the crease of my eyelid.
Five. Classic Crease Brush #73; I almost exclusively use this to dust a skin tone matching shadow on my brow bone to soften the “edge” of my eyeshadow.
Six. Classic Multitasker Contour #55; Great for really adding a nice, deep contour under cheekbones with a powder contour.
Seven. Sonia Kashuk Large Domed Eye Shadow Brush No 20; I actually have two of these! It’s the only brush I use to apply eyeshadow all over my lid.
Eight. 30 Second HAC Brush by Maskcara Cosmetics; Love the flatter end for a cream contour, and the pointed end for foundation!
Nine. Sonia Kashuk Domed Blusher Brush No 29; Simply, there is nothing I could ask for in a perfect blush brush than whats provided in this one. Does the job, right about of fluffiness and very soft.
Just like the tools you use to style your hair make or break the style, I really think the tools you use applying makeup will determine how well it will apply + how nice it will look! My favorite brand, hands down, is Sonia Kashuk. I love the quality for the price, and I’ve never had an issue with hairs falling out or the brushes losing their shape!
