Most of the makeup brushes I have are from Michael’s, they’re a lot cheaper than buying “real” makeup brushes and they always have a 40% off coupon in the sunday ads every week! They have Loew Cornell brushes at Walmart as well that come in packs. The brushes from Walmart are different from the ones that I use, but you could check them out and see if any of them look useful. Here comes a crapload of pictures!…
Royal Soft Grip size M SG999. I use this as a fluffy eyeshadow brush. TIP: Use flatter [shading] brushes when you want to have more color intensity versus fluffy brushes which don’t pick up or deposit so much color at first]. It’s great for highlighting or blending.
LC 270 Maxine’s Mop in sizes [from top to bottom] 1/2, 1/4, 3/8. These are the shader brushes I mentioned earlier. The big ones I use to apply base or highlighter on the brow bone. The middle brush is for basic eyeshadow application. I use the small one to apply highlighter to the inner corners of my eyes.
I know this isn’t a brush, but it’s related. I use this as a pallete to put my mineral foundation on instead of swirling it into the cap. I also use the wells to put mixing medium in when I do my eyeliner and whatnot. I got this at Michael’s also I think it was either 99 cents or 1.99. All of the smaller brushes go for around 2-4 dollars, but you get an extra discount with the coupon! The discount only applied to one item, but you can choose which item to apply the discount to.
I got the idea to buy makeup brushes from the craftstore from Enkore Makeup. Here’s the video!
