Hi my dear readers, today I am going to share with you my favorite blush brushes.
Ever since I became an makeup aficionado, I got addicted to buying makeup brushes as I always think next brush will be the best. Every time I see a beauty guru using or recommending brushes on You Tube, I would imagine how good it is if I own those brushes, and I would then go buy them if it’s within my price range (I am constantly on the hunt of affordable quality brushes as I am not ready to buy brushes that cost a fortune just yet; the same goes with handbags).
The six brushes that I featured in the photo above are my favorite blush brushes at the moment.
Quality wise, I have no complaints to all of these six brushes. They are super soft, silky, non-scratchy and no shedding at all even after washing.
1. Missha Professional Highlighter Brush
I got this brush from a local Korean beauty store which has now closed. I don’t remember how much the brush was, but I like the yellow/gold brush handle (I love stuff that have cute packaging). Even though it is named as a “professional Highlighter Brush” I don’t tend to use brushes as they are claimed. Because it is a duo fiber brush, I use it with blushes that are highly pigmented or with shimmer. This way, blushes can be evenly applied across my cheekbones, achieving that “blush from within” effect without giving me a clownish look.
2. Furless MF1 Brush (cruelty free), I am an affiliate(link can be found on the sidebars.)
Originally I bought this brush for bronzing. After a few uses and experiments, I found that it is also a perfect brush for applying blushes(what a tongue twister). Due to its shape(slightly slanted at the top with two flat sides) and size, it fits perfectly on my cheekbones. Only one swipe, Voila, mission accomplished! It is also very easy to pick up products using the flat sides of the brush so I use this brush for blushes that are lack of pigmentation.
3. Real Techniques Multi task brush
I longed for this brush(come within the travel essentials set) for a while but due to the high price tag in Australia(retails for $39.99 at www.priceline.com.au) and the inconvenience of ordering it online, I held it off for nearly a year until I learnt that I can buy the brush from http://www.sahairsupplies.com.au for only $26.95 and no need for shipping. This brush has the similar shape as the Furless MF1 brush, but it is not as dense. It is a true multi task brush that are suitable for applying bronzers,blushes, powders or even foundations.
4. Crown C141 small chisel blush
I like brushes that have flat sides, I feel it’s the best shape for picking up products and apply blushes on my cheeks. It is also a good brush for applying highlighters. I bought this brush from www.crownbrush.com.au. Crown brush’s quality is unquestionable, has many ranges of brushes to chose from, and the price of their products are reasonable too.
5. Sigma large angled conture brush F40
This is my first ever good quality brush which I bought from www.sigmabeauty.com. It came from a pink travel set, therefore, it has the beautiful pink handle. Shape wise, I like that it’s angled but with a flat top, this brush can easily pick up products and I usually use it with stippling motion to apply blushes across my cheeks. As I liked the brush so much, I bought a normal version as back-up.
6. e.l.f stipple brush
I bought this brush from www.elfcosmectics.com.au by accident when I was looking for the small stipple brush. Since it arrived, I have tried this with bronzers, powders and eventually blushes. I was surprised that how much I liked using it for blushes. It is duo fiber and has the similar shape as the Real Techniques Multi task brush. It give me just the right amount of blush across my cheekbones. I also want to mention that I am impressed with e.l.f cosmetics where it’s a brand that combine affordable price and quality.
What is your favorite blush brush? Have you tried some of these brushes and what are your thoughts?
