THE BRUSHES EVERY GIRL NEEDS



Brushes have the ability to make such a difference when it comes to makeup application. They can take your foundation from streaky to flawless and give your smokey eye the perfect gradient. 

However, I will admit that brushes were something I would steer clear of buying expensively when it came to beauty purchases. They can be so pricey and were never as exciting as another eyeshadow palette or shade of lipstick. Flash forward to now - my tastes are maturing and I now realize that having a great foundation and powder is almost meaningless without the right application method. In an effort to replace some of my Real Techniques brushes, I recently purchased the Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder Brush and the Bobbi Brown Full Coverage Face Brush. I am now unsure of how I survived countless foundation applications without these two in my arsenal, they are that good

The Sheer Powder brush couldn't be more versatile when it comes to powder application. I have already double dipped this brush into just about every powder product I own - bronzer, blush, contour powders, etc. - and can truly say that the result is airbrushed and flawless. The bristles pick up the perfect amount of setting powder to create possibly the most natural, diffused finish ever. The Full Coverage Face Brush is what I call my grown up, more sophisticated Real Techniques Buffing Brush. It has a great compact size and densely packed, ultra soft bristles that when swept and swirled across the skin create a glowing and perfected base every time. I personally like the finish that this brush gives more than my Real Techniques favorite, as this one seems to fuse the foundation with the skin for a second skin like finish. I also love that this can be used with liquid, cream, or mineral foundations and give equally amazing results with all. 

Have you tried any of these brushes, or any of the Bobbi Brown brush range? I'm looking to expand my collection...enable me!

    1. Thank you, you're too sweet! I would recommend the Bobbi Brown Full Coverage Face brush if you're looking for a foundation brush that doubles for blending concealer. I also really like it with mineral powders as well!
