Makeup Brushes 101

By  |  5 Comments

This video focuses mainly on my favorite MAC brushes, but please don’t feel like those are the only ones I use or that are worth using! I admit that I absolutely LOVE my MAC Brushes, and believe they are totally worth the money. Most of my MAC brushes are well over 4-5 years old and still in wonderful condition. I feel like its more worth it to spend more on something that will last a long time then buy something cheap that you’ll have to replace rather quickly.

If MAC brushes are out of your price range, I would check out Crown Brushes. Crown Brushes are sold by loads of online makeup companies, and theyre really nice quality and not expensive.

    Hey, just wanted to let you know that the link you have for Crown Brushes is incorrect. The correct one is I dont know if you have tried them either, but the Kirkland brand brushes from Costco come in a set of 7-10 for like $20 and are just as nice as my MAC brushes. I also adore my Sonia Kashuk brushes from Target and my Essence of Beauty brushes from CVS. Just making suggestions that you might want to let your other “budget” conscious readers know about :)

    I adoooorrreee this video. Yeah, I may be a latecomer to the whole art of makeup, but I am no stranger to brushes. I’m a an amateur painter. So I’m good with mixing colors, making gradients and using paintbrushes. Glad to finally see what all the different makeup brushes do- largely the same kinds of things regular paint brushes do. lol But softer, I suppose. I’d be pretty scared if my face felt like canvas. :)

    I just wanted to share mhy recent experience with Crown Brushes. I bought a set from Haute Look, and received them today. OMG they smell like formaldehyde! Absolutely horrid. I offered to send them back for a refund, but the sales gal said no, just throw them away. OY!!
