I firmly believe that a girl can never have too many makeup brushes. But it doesn’t matter how many brushes we have, we all have our favourites which we use every time we apply our makeup. So today, I thought I’d briefly talk about my three favourite eyeshadow brushes. The E.L.F. Eyeshadow Brush is very versatile. It applies eyeshadow on the lid evenly, and can be used to blend and place the color on the crease as well. You could actually do an entire look just with this brush if you had to and it’s really inexpensive.
The other two brushes are both from Gosh. The Flat Eyeshadow Brush is perfect to pat the colors on the lid, while the Round Eyeshadow Brush can be used to create shapes, apply the color on the lower lashline and just work on small areas. I actually prefer it to the MAC 219 Pencil Brush because the tip is smaller and thus more suitable for those who like me have small eyes. In addition, all three brushes have dense but soft bristles that don’t scratch skin and don’t shed. What about you? What are your favourite eyeshadow brushes?
