Most Used Makeup Brushes


Most Used Makeup Brushes Real Techniques, Zoeva and MAC
 As the years have gone on my makeup brush collection has expanded, going from just a few eyeshadow brushes into a whole collection of different brands and different styles. I have a small selection of every kind of brush you will ever need. Over the years I've tried a few different brands of makeup brushes and I've really got to know what I love and what I look for in a good trusty makeup brush. I want to share with you some of my most used and loved makeup brushes.

Most Used Makeup Brushes Real Techniques and Zoeva
Zoeva 102 Silk Finish Brush | This is my go to foundation brush. The taklon bristles are super soft for streak free and smooth application. The brush is strong and sturdy for a good grip and control. I love the size of this brush, it makes foundation application so quick and easy. The brush covers a good amount and blends out so nicely. Of course the rose gold collection is just so beautiful - I have a full review here of the Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Brush Set Vol 1.
Real Techniques Powder Brush | I don't go a day wearing makeup where I don't apply powder. I just feel half done if I haven't set my makeup with a powder and the Real Techniques Powder Brush is my go to. I love that its bristles are super soft and almost kind of fluffy, it makes for flawless application. The sheer size of this brush makes it so quick and easy to apply powder too.
Zoeva 126 Luxe Cheek Finish Brush | This is the perfect brush to add powder with, the mix of natural and synthetic bristles make this brush so light and fluffy, you can really apply powder effortlessly. I use this to apply my bronzer and the super soft bristles make it so easy to get a light finish, or I can go heavier depending on my mood. It's the perfect size to get under my cheekbones and to add a glow all over. 
Zoeva 127 Luxe Sheer Cheek Brush | This was the one brush I was most excited to use from the Rose Golden Luxury Brush Set. I just love the angled face, this makes applying blusher just so effortless and easy. It really blends in the apples of your cheeks, it's the perfect size. Again this brush has a mix of natural and synthetic bristles, making it super soft and lovely to apply powder makeup.

Real Techniques Contour Brush | One thing I look for in makeup brushes is there versatility. I love a brush that's great for multiple uses. The Real Techniques Contour brush has to be one of the most versatile in my collection and I love to use it to apply my concealer. The tapered shape makes it so easy to get into all the little creases and edges such as the sides of your nose or under your eyes.
Real Techniques Setting Brush | This is probably the most versatile brush in my collection, it's a real staple you need to get your hands on. The Real Techniques Setting brush is the perfect brush for concealing, highlighting, bronzing, contouring, the list goes on and on. I use this to add my highlight -  I find it's the perfect shape and size just to add a little shimmer to my cheekbones, brow bone, cupids bow and so on. If you want precise application, this is the brush to use!
Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush | Again this is a great multi-tasker, I use this to apply my base shade, despite what it says on the tin. The size of this brush makes it perfect to apply all over the eye lid. Of course the bristles are super soft and don't irritate my eyelids. There's nothing worse than a harsh eyeshadow brush! 
MAC 217 Blending Brush | How could I not include this in my most used makeup brushes! Although now I have a lot like this, this was my original and still is my most used blending brush. The super soft oval shaped brush, is the perfect size to get in the crease of your eye. This blends so nicely and easily, it's always good to have a couple in your collection. 

As a bit of a makeup junkie I feel like you can never have too many brushes, I'd love to know what your favourite and most used brushes are beauties?
