Best Brush For...


Hey everyone!

So some of you might have already seen my Make Up Tools Collection post almost exactly two months ago. If you have, you will have noticed that I like to own a brush for every purpose of the make up routine. In between that post and the moment you're reading this, I've been to Sephora and picked up three new brushes. I'd love to highlight which brush is my favourite for every purpose today.

Oh, let's ignore that I didn't clean my brushes before taking pictures, shall we?


... foundation:
Since forever I've been using the Sephora 45 Mineral Powder brush. I started using it with the Mac Studio Fix powder foundation and when I started using liquid foundations I just kept using it. I know it really suffers from all the buffing because the hairs are quite soft but for me it's just the right density to buff everything in and spread everything out evenly.

Since buying the Zoeva Rose Gold set, I've not been using anything else! The 142 Concealer Buffer is quite dense so it buffs in the concealer perfectly and it's also small enough to fit into the corners around my nose. 

I have loved the Zoeva 106 Powder brush a lot, it's super soft and picks up just the right amount of powder to not make it go cakey. With powder I really think it matters if you have a good brush or not.

I reckon the Zoeva Powder brush is just s good for this purpose, but I wanted a separate one so I didn't have to clean it all the time. The Real Techniques Powder Brush has been my friend ever since I've been getting into bronzers recently! It's super big and oh so fluffy!

...contour and highlight:
I've finally picked up a decent contour brush from Sephora, the 74 PRO contour. It's small but fits right into the hollows of my cheeks. Because it's not too dense it does blend out the product so it doesn't make harsh lines. For highlight I'm always going for the Real Techniques Setting Brush, just because it's so fluffy and I can place the highlight very precisely.

I love a denser brush for blush, although I have to be very careful with it, it's just so easy to use and I love the quality of the Sephora 49 PRO Angled Blush Brush.

I'm always filling in my brows with a powder eyeshadow so that's why I prefer an angled brush for that. I always go through my brows first with a clear spooley.

The ultimate eyeshadow brush must be the Mac 213. It's great for packing on shadows or pigments and it feels like just the right size for my eyes.

...crease shadow:
To blend out or define the crease I'm always using a fluffier brush and 9/10 it'll be the Zoeva 227 Luxe Soft Definer. I also use this a lot for blending out cream eyeshadows, as you probably can tell.

...inner corner highlight:
Finally we've come to the finishing touch of the eyelook and I mostly apply the inner corner highlight with the Zoeva 231 Luxe Petite Crease. Again, it fits right where it needs to fit and makes it easier not to over-apply or get it everywhere; because of the pointy tip it's more precise than some other eyeshadow brushes.

What are your favourite tools? Let me know down below ;)

Lots of love,
