Make Up Brush Wish List


I thought I had a adequate supply of make up brushes, but since training and working on a few shows, I realised there are still quite a few I'm lacking. I'm not a fan of using my "kit brushes" for my own everyday use - I know, I'm weird - so there are a few of my own that I want to replace with better quality brushes. I started this list with 4 brushes and it kind of spiralled out of control and now there are 11, coming to a total of £85, not including shipping...

Starting off with the obvious, there are quite a few MAC brushes I'm looking to purchase. Whenever I'm in store I find myself drifting over and touching all the brushes, thinking about how soft they are. Again, I'm weird, I know! I currently only own one MAC brush, the 217,  which is a complete game changer for blending eyeshadow. There are a few more eyeshadow from MAC that I want to add to my collection, the first being the 213 fluff brush. It's  the perfect size for adding colour to the crease of the eye and lives up to it's name in the fluff department. The 219 Pencil Brush is just what I need for blending along the lash line and smudging out liner. The last brush I want from MAC is the 168 Angled Contour Brush, mainly because of how soft it is!

The next website I've been looking at for brushes is Crown Brushes. The main brush I want is the Jumbo Kabuki Fan. It's massive and fluffy, perfect for a soft and quick contour. The Crescent Shadow brush is similar to the MAC 213 Fluff brush, so it will be interesting to see how they compare! I love a fibre brush and the Duo Fibre Buffer has tightly compact bristles for buffing in foundation.

The last website I looked at for brushes is Coastal Scents. I have heard of their brushes before but I never checked them out until I had the Classic Blush recommended to me on The Hunt. I've stupidly taken pictures of the Natural Brushes for my wish list, but I'd probably go for the synthetic versions to be more cruelty free. I also liked the look of the Shadow Dome as it would be perfect for blending eyeshadow into the under eye without causing discomfort or too much colour spread. The Classic Blender Crease will be used to lightly blend out shadow at the end of the application process to soften any harsh edges without adding more colour. The last brush on my wish list is the Pro Blending Fluff, which is a dupe of my beloved MAC 217. I'm interested to see how it compares and how the quality differs between the two!

A bit of a long post today, but hopefully you enjoyed it and got to see a few different brush options for your make up! Do you have a favourite brand, or a game changing brush?
