Alright, as much as I hate spending money on something that isn’t really make-up, brushes and tools are pretty useful. So I thought I’d put together a list of my favourite ones that are all pretty acceptable price-ranges, because youknow, I’m really bored and Cass from http://www.bananarockets.wordpress.com told me to;)
Before you look at that price and go ’18 brushes? For £15? Yeah, right,’, I’m going to mention that these are probably my favourite brushes ever. They’re so so soft, and the packaging is pretty cute and the metallic brushes are surprisingly great quality. If you’re new to make-up-ing, this set would be a great one to buy because it has everything. Seriously. You can buy some great brush sets on Amazon, actually. I wouldn’t risk Ebay though, if I’m honest;)
I’ve never bought these on their own, but I have a couple that came with a make-up set. They are amazing. Like really. I think they’re around £5-10 on there own, but I’d pay more for them. Again, they’re really soft, and the actual brush looks really professional and stuff.
Ecotools are brilliant. They aren’t as soft as the other two, but the quality is a bit better. These just seem a bit more sturdy than the others. They come in loads of different sets, but the one I’ve hyperlinked above is a kind of all-round set. They also come with a really nice make-up bag to keep them in.
This is a set of 4 face brushes, which would be good if you only tend to do a very basic, natural make-up look. These are pretty much for foundation, concealer, blush and face-powder, and they’re a great quality set. They don’t look as pretty as some of the others, but don’t judge a brush by it’s…cover.
Yeah, OK, so I’ve never actually tried these, but I’m planning on ordering some soon, because they look pretty good and I’ve heard some great reviews for them. And the price is unbelievable.
Again, these aren’t in a set, but you could get a nice little make-up bag to put them all in;) No7 is a really great quality brand, and the prices aren’t ridiculous, like some make-up brushes (seriously guys. If you pay more that £100 for a piece brush, then you may have a serious problem. I’m sure they’re lovely brushes, but I’m also sure you can get equally lovely brushes with a slightly smaller price tag).
I’ve read some amazing reviews for these, and they’re definitely near the top of my to-buy list. They’re all neon colours and look really pretty. Again, they aren’t in a set, but if you can make a more personalised selection of brushes this way;)
Hope this was useful;) Let me know if they’re are any others I should try, and what you thought of some of these;)
