You can have the absolute best makeup in the world, but for the vast majority of us, if you don’t have the brushes to apply it with then you might as well have one of those introductory kits for kids. You could try and experiment with using your finger or a sponge to apply your makeup, but I’ve always found that you just can’t really compete with the coverage you’ll get with a brush. So, if you’re in the market for some new brushes, here is my list of some of the best places to pick them up from.
These brushes are not only great applicators, but they also look really good, so you can leave your brushes out and not have to worry about your space getting cluttered with lots of black and beige brushes. On top of their quality application and great appearance, Spectrum brushes are completely vegan, so you can look great and rest assured that your brushes have been ethically sourced.
The brushes from Morphe are basically professional level quality, but at a more affordable and approachable entry cost. You can pick up a full set of 30 brushes for about £120, so you can kit yourself out with a full collection of brushes that will last you a long time and give you amazing application, for only £4 each. Not too shabby.
These brushes have been designed by two make-up artist and blogger sisters, and they have produced some of the most approachable brushes out there. If you’d like to get more into using brushes for makeup, then I’d recommend picking up the powder brush which is a top-notch all-rounder brush.
Zoeva is an excellent source of some more specialised brushes, so if you’re looking for a new contour or lip brush for accurate application, then Zoeva is probably a brand that is well worth taking a look at.
Bobbi Brown brushes are, to put it very simply and clearly, some of the absolute best quality brushes that you can find. No matter what type of brush you’re after, you’ll be able to get a top quality brush from Bobbi Brown.
