Everyday Face Brushes

Makeup Brushes, Real Techniques, Zoeva
Firstly, I must apologise for the state of my unclean brushes. I am potentially the laziest person ever when it comes to cleaning make up brushes, a real bad habit of mine (sorry beauty bloggers!). Now, I own a fair amount of face brushes but these are the ones that I always go back to regularly:

Real Techniques Buffing Brush: this is my all time favourite make-up brush and I haven't yet come across anything else that compares to it. I have tried so many foundation brushes but I can't seem to part with this one. It just buffs the product into your skin so well and creates the most flawless base.

Zoeva Luxe Cheek Finish: the first thing I have to say about this brush is that it's so soft! It feels like silk on my cheeks and applies blusher so well. I find that it buffs the right amount of product into your skin so a healthy glow takes very little effort. I don't know about you but I'm all for a tool that makes life much easier!

Real Techniques Contour Brush: I know the name of this is a 'contour' brush but I didn't really get on well with it for applying my contour. It didn't give a dramatic enough effect for me so I use this to apply my highlighter and also to conceal my under eyes with powder as it is the perfect shape. Using this brush gives you a softer look which is ideal for highlighting as I don't want my face to look like a glitter ball!

Zoeva Face Shape Brush: this brush is amazing for contouring, the dense head allows you to really pack on the product and hollow out those cheeks to create killer cheekbones. It isn't the brush for you if you are looking for a natural finish as it does make the contour appear really intense. I'm a fan of the not so natural contour look as my chubby cheeks are hiding my cheek bones so I need a little help to create the illusion!

Do you own any of these brushes? What are your favourite face brushes?

  4. I use the RT contour brush for blush, definitely agree with the softer look :) I've not tried many other brands apart from RT and Eco Tools to be honest, I'd like to try others but there's always something else to be buying!

  7. I'm always on the hunt for new brushes, I need to get my hands on some Zooeva brushes! I love Morphe brushes, I have a gorgeous one from them for contouring. And like you I have chubby cheeks so the sharper the contour the better!
