everyday brushes

Makeup brushes quickly became my favourite beauty product to buy after first trying the Real Techniques Core Collection. I became addicted to the way they made my makeup apply so easily & have continued adding RT brushes to my collection. When I was younger I would use the brushes that came with products, such as those tiny rectangular shaped blush brushes & the foam eyeshadow applicators, thank god I got sucked into the world of beauty blogging & discovered new tools to apply my makeup with!

Powder Brush:  Currently I don't actually use this brush for powder but instead to apply & blend bronzer. I think it's a great brush for being able to sweep bronzer around your face without going overboard & ending up looking like you have a muddy face!

Blush Brush: At first I didn't believe that would make a very good blusher brush due to it's size but it actually works really well. I used to apply blush with a much smaller brush but after using this one I prefer that the colour is more evenly applied on the apples of my cheek. Rather than having a block of blush it helps the product look more natural on my cheeks.

Expert Face Brush: This is my favourite base brush ever. I used to love the buffing brush & whilst I still do love it I much prefer the Expert Face brush. I don't really know why I love it more, as they are really quite similar but I feel like my foundation looks better when I apply it with this one. I guess the circular shaped head helps to buff the foundation into areas such as my nose & hairline.

Pixel-Point Eyeliner Brush: This thin little brush is super handy for adding gel liner to my tight line or above my lashes & also for adding eyeshadow under my bottom lashes to create a smokey eye look. It's the perfect size for completing these makeup tasks & I'd be lost without it now.

Contour Brush: I use this brush to define my cheekbones before blending the product out with the powder brush. It's a good size for making sure I apply the right amount of product. It's also a good brush to use when concealing under my eyes.

I also have a few other brushes that I use everyday but these are the most loved out of my collection. I'm going to be sharing two of my favourite eye makeup brushes very soon though so watch out for that! (:
What makeup brushes do you use everyday?
