Your Favorite Brand Brushes 101

Recommended Posts

I'm a little new to this mineral makeup thing and was looking for your input on your favorite brushes in terms of brand of brush and use? If you use one brush for multiple tasks please indicate that as well.

 

Example:

 

Foundation Brush: I use Mac 182 but I am considering a flat brush

 

Flat brush: I dont have one but might consider it?

 

Blush: Bobbi Brown Power brush

 

Concealer: Bare Escentuals concealer brush

 

Bronzer: I do not have a brush for this because I do not use bronzer

 

Eyes: This alone tends to have multiple brushes but I ended up buying an eye and face set at Sephora since I dont use eye make up on a daily basis.

a. Lid -

b. Contour -

c. Crease -

 

All Other Brushes: If I did not list a particular brush that covers a certain task please list and indicate brand and use.

 

Tks so much!

I have the forever female short handled flat top which I love and both the flat top kabuki and normal kabuki from EDM and think their both great for different reasons. EDM kabuki for putting primer on. flat top for foundation. Also have the lumiere brushes from the pre buy which I do like but not as much as I thought I would. but I have a mineral make up obsession. Also looking at adesign brushes because i've heard good things about them.

 

Lumiere dual eye brush is fantastic.

I have to recommend EDM brushes. They are awesome!! I use the flat top brush for my foundation, the long handle kabuki for my blush, eye shadow brush and eye kabuki for eyes, and I am in the process of ordering an angled blush brush, so I will tell you how that one is when I get it. I had some other brushes but they do not compare to these. The application is so much better.

For foundation I actually prefer Image Essentials red cleansing sponge (found at Kmart) 2 for $1.50-- I each into a 1/4 wedge and apply my mmu foundation damp. Gives such skin-like results.

 

For blush my favorites are from this set I found at Christmas time in the aisle with things like bath sets, perfume sets etc for the holiday. Just the three great blush/powder brushes I got in the set made it worthy of the $15 price tag and got all kinds of eye/concealer etc brushes. Brand doesn't matter but feel does to me-- I always go with super soft fluffy synthetic brushes for blush. I've found some good ones from Got UB Urban at T J Maxx for under $5. Ecotools also has a nice one.

 

For glow/illuminator I like any fiber optic. Lumiere has some good ones.

 

Eye brushes--

all over- especially shimmery minerals Sonia Kashuk blender (the curvy handle one) is my absolute favorite... worth the extra few dollars over the white handled version. SO soft and makes blending minerals effortless.

I purchased my first complete set of brushes from Sebastian in 1985 and aside from the worn out handles they are still going strong. These brushes are incredible and I seriously wonder if they even make such a durable brush anymore!!!

I believe they are sable or mink...not sure.

 

I think I'm do for a new set but these babies have been through alot with me.

I have a slew of MAC, Bobby Brown, EDM, Forever Female, Lumiere, Coastal Scents, Sonia Kashuk and lots of odds and ends from drugstores but my favorites the Forever Female Long Handled Flat Top Bronzer for applying foundation, the Short handled for finishing powders. I'm flexible on how and what I use for everything else.

    • You might be in shape otherwise but still have a lump of fat jutting out from under your chin. And we agree, that totally spoils all the photos. But why don't you use makeup to get rid of double chin till such time you lose enough weight to get a chiseled jaw line? So even if you haven't managed to shed all that extra flab yet, but have a party that you just can't miss, don't get upset about the double chin. You can still use makeup cleverly to hide it and look fabulous in all your photos. Here are some makeup hacks that will come in handy:
    • The trick to take care of dry skin is to feed it with moisture. But, there's a drawback, we cannot overfeed it as it may lead to breakouts, acne, and pimples. Therefore, it is important to use the right product that helps to hydrate the skin without much harm.  So how do we combat dry skin?  Here are our favourite and effective product that helps to fight the dry flaky skin.  Cosrx - Hyaluronic Hydra Power Essence Hyaluronic Acid is the king of moisturization and this essence by Cosrx is full of it. It draws water into the skin and immediately moisturizes the dry & depleted skin.  Results: Skin is softer and moisturized, leaving bumpy and dry skin silky smooth. It's excellent for dry to normal skin types.  Some By Mi-H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream The name uses the word hydro max moisture to convey that nothing hydrates better than this! It soothes skin irritation, reduces skin redness and wrinkles. It also has a whitening effect and smoothes rough patches of skin. The 7 types of hyaluronic acid fill in from the deepest layer of the skin and create a barrier so that it can maintain the optimum moisture for a prolonged time. Make sure to use it after cleansing the skin.  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Face Masks are excellent for providing ample moisture and long term hydration to the skin.  Here are our recommendations: Eunyul- Natural Moisture Mask Pack Lined with green tea extract, the facemask works to provide ample moisture to the skin while the collagen helps to reboot the skin in a short time.  Missha-Airy Fit Sheet Mask (Cucumber) This eco-friendly rice cake sheet mask is 2 times thinner than a normal sheet mask. Cucumber helps to effectively help combat dryness while the thin sheet mask feels airy and lightweight. 
    • People tend to collect an amazing quantity of items over the years. Reasons for keeping items include an emotional attachment, an intention to reuse or fix the items in the future, or a wish to pass them on to others. However, for many items, if you haven't used them in over a year, you probably don't need them. Getting some help to get rid of all your rubbish isn't a bad move. Don’t want to do it yourself? These people have you covered. Leave all the heavy lifting work to them. With a professional firm like eMop, you don’t need to worry about the pick-up or disposal of those old items that you don't need any more.
    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.
