Favourite Face Brushes

High End Products (1)

The following brushes are the brushes that I use daily, and always reach for. They are all quite affordable, most of them being drugstore brushes.

1. Zoeva 104 Buffer – $32.00


I use this brush to apply my liquid foundation. It is really dense, so you don’t lose much product at all during the application. It is so easy to buff out foundation and leaves no streaks. It is the softest brush that I own and ever since I purchased it, I have wondered what I ever did without it. It’s also a perfect size, not too big that you can’t smooth out those difficult to reach areas (under the eyes) and it is not so small that it takes half a day to buff out your whole face. I know this is a big call, but i would go as far as to say… this is my favourite brush in my whole collection. It is a little bit more pricey, but if you are looking for a perfect foundation brush, it is totally worth splashing out a few extra dollars on this one.

Available at: Sephora or online at Beauty Bay

2. Models Prefer MDP104 Powder & Bronzer – $24.99


As I was getting slightly carried away during a 40% off sale at Priceline, throwing practically everything I saw into my basket.. this brush ended making it through the check out and into my makeup cupboard. I wasn’t particularly excited about it as I had hardly read or heard anything about these brushes. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it for the first time. I use it to set my foundation and under eye concealer, it is really soft and applies the product beautifully. I highly recommend giving this brush a try. As Models Prefer is owned by Priceline, it is relatively cheap.. and quite frequently on sale so you are bound to bag yourself a bargain. I am yet to try any of their other brushes, however if they are as good as this one, I might be purchasing the whole collection…

3. Real Techniques Blush Brush – $24.99


Real Techniques is probably my favourite makeup brush brand, simply because of the value for money. They are expensive for a drugstore product, but they provide the quality of a high-end brush. I use this brush to apply my bronzer on my cheeks and forehead, I like it because it covers a lot of area and picks up the product really well. I have also used it to apply my blush and powder, it is a really good multipurpose brush to have in your collection.

4. Real Techniques Contour Brush – $45.00 (in a set)


I love this brush for its size. It is perfect for blending under eye(or anywhere on your face) concealer, and it does it so well. I find concealer can be difficult to blend with brushes as it is quite thick, however this brush does a fantastic job – leaving to streaks and you don’t lose much product as all whilst blending. I also use it for setting my under eyes. This brush is a must have if you are going to be applying concealer in those hard-to-reach places. You can only get this particular brush in a set, which is what I did(worth it as you save money and all the brushes are great), but I am certain there is a similar brush for about $18.00.

5. Benefit Hoola Bronzer Brush – $51.00


So unfortunately, Benefit don’t sell this brush on its own. It comes with the Hoola Bronzer, which is an amazing bronzer so it is worth the purchase. This brush is the only brush I will use to contour. It applies the product so well under the cheekbones and it blends the product so easily. It is really similar to the NAR Ita brush, but without the $80 price tag. It’s quite fluffy, but not super soft so it does transfer the product onto the face very well, without giving it a muddy look.

Available at: Myer and Sephora

6. Zoeva 105 Highlight Brush – $30.00


This brush is really good at doing exactly what it says it will – applying highlight. It is really light and fluffy making it easy to apply my highlight really softly, and is able to build it up without making your face look like a disco ball (unless you want it to, in which case if you apply enough, it will).

7. Real Techniques Multitask Brush – $45.00 (in a set)


This is a good brush to have in your collection, purely because it is capable of many things. I use it primarily to apply blush. However it is able to apply liquid foundation, bronzer and everything in between. There’s not much to say other than it is a really good all-rounder, and blends products seamlessly. The only frustrating thing about this brush is that it is only available in a set, which is fine if you need the other two brushes(eye brush and foundation brush). All the brushes in the set are good, but this one is the best.
