Makeup Monday – The Best Brushes

Everyone should invest in a great set of makeup brushes! Over the years, I have learned which brushes work best for me depending on the makeup I’m using. If I want a smokey eye I know I will need 4 brushes: two for my eye shadow, one blending brush and a sharp edged brush for my lower liner. Below are my top picks and the brushes I personally use on a daily basis!


A good foundation brush is necessary in order to apply your makeup evenly! I personally like to use this retractile Chanel brush for my foundation. It’s easy to carry around I’ve had it for years! A little pricey but great quality. I also like this Bobbi Brown brush, it’s another solid option! You can also use switch them out and use one for powder and the other for foundation.

An eyeshadow brush set is also important! I like these four brushes; one for eye primer or your base coat, another one for your shadow, a blending brush, and either a pointed or sharp edged brush.

Blush and Bronzer brushes! I like using this rounded brush for my blush and this flat brush for my bronzer. It’s totally a personal preference but these are my two favorites!

If you are just looking for an easy, basic set, there are numerous options on Nordstrom or Amazon. I would recommend this set from Nordstrom or this one from Amazon.
