Hi I am new here and have a question about brushes. I have looked at Chanel at $250 for 5 brushes and MAC which are about $22 a piece and Sephora $40 a set and Target $3 a brush. I am a crossdresser and learning. Does the quality of the brush matter. I want to look good. I have to really paint to change from boy to girl. I don't use them everyday. Once a week to once a month. Any suggestions???? Thanks Dana

If you want good brushes, but you're just starting out, then I'd go with low-end ones first. Sonia Kashuk in Target is good, as well as Essence of Beauty (EOB), which you can find at CVS/Rite-Aid. If you really want to go high-end, MAC has good brushes.

I dont think spending alot of money on brushes is necessary.

Brushes are important but application is as well.

I'm just starting to use makeup myself, I bought a brush set with 5 brushes (by Lancome, $58) It included a blush brush and 3 eye shadow brushes. and since then I buy them alone.

I think you should start with the basics 1st:

Blush brush

Powder brush

foundation brush

concealer brush

and various eyeshaow brushes (esp. a blending brush)

Hope this is helpful.

NYX has good brushes at great prices.

Even craft store brushes can be really good if you're choosing the right ones
