My favourite / most used make up brushes

Make up brushes are an essential to get the best results when doing your make up. Generally, people find make up brushes quite expensive but I promise if you invest in a few good quality expensive brushes you will not regret it. Make up brushes can last years if they are washed often and taken care of. The make up brushes included in this post are the ones I use everyday for my make up, I will include links below for all of the brushes in this post :).

Face Brushes.
Blank Canvas Cosmetics F20.
I have featured this brush in almost every one of my tutorial posts, I use this brush for my foundation, it is extremely dense which means your foundation will apply flawlessly if you use a light hand. The finish that I get from this brush is beautiful and flawless. It retails at €13.99 which is not the cheapest but it is completely worth it and I know I will have this brush for years.

Real Techniques Contour Brush.
I use this brush daily to set my concealer with powder, I know that this is not the intended use of this brush but I feel that this brush does a way better job than any other brush to set my concealer. This brush comes as part of the Core Collection by Real Techniques which comes with 3 other brushes (the buffing brush, the pointed foundation brush and the detailer brush) but this is the one I use most often, the tapered ends make up perfect for getting under the eyes. This brush cannot be bought individually unfortunately but the collection retails at about €13.00 which is brilliant for 4 brushes.

Real Techniques Multi Task Brush.
This brush is another one by real techniques the intended use of this brush is powder blush and bronzer. I use this for blush and it gives a beautiful flawless finish. I feel that it distributes the perfect amount of product onto my face every time. This brush comes as part of the Travel Essentials collection with 2 other brushes (the domed shadow brush and the essential foundation brush) but once again this is my favourite from the collection. unfortunately this brush cannot be bought separately but the collection retails at about €13.00 which again is brilliant for a set of brushes.
