When I first got into makeup I had no idea, what I was getting myself into and I absolutely knew nothing about makeup brushes. I would use one brush I bought from Avon and the sponge applicator some of the eyeshadow came with. Sorry ladies without truly revealing my exact age 😫, makeup has come a long way. I remember I reached out to a friend of mines who was a makeup artist, and I asked her the simplest question “how do you apply basic makeup”. Her reply was “ it’s hard to explain you wouldn’t understand you have to be in the industry”! With that said I made it my mission to learn how to apply the basic makeup so I searched on You Tube. I would spent what ever free time I had watching awesome and talented makeup guru that made great tutorials on their you tube channel . That’s all I needed to learned the basic on how to apply makeup and how important is to have the right makeup brushes. So boo, if you are just starting out on Makeup and have no clue where to start with brushes I will guide you on the 10 Must Have Makeup brushes. I will Share the best affordable brushes to start off.
MAC 239 was one of my first Mac brush when I started out. That was a MUST BRUSH to own and many Beauty guru favorite brush. This brush packs on color beautifully on the lid without fallout. This is one of my favorites.
Real Techinique eye shade + Blend Set
If the MAC 239 & 224 are to pricy these are perfect for you especially if you are just starting out. This set comes with an eyeshadow brush and blending, you Cant beat that. Packs color well and blend smooth. Brush is soft and the bristle don’t fall out.
Dupe for MAC 224. This brush is very good quality and soft. It doesn’t shed and it blends shadows flawlessly. This is a brush to add to your starting KIT.
Tips: If MAC brushes are way out of your budget no worries you can still buy affordable good blendable brushes that will work aswell. Morphe Pro Firm Blending Crease is a Dupe of MAC 224 and it’s way cheaper than MAC. As a beginner I started with these two MAC Brush and then I purchase the Morphe, all work well with blending the color. Real Technique are a great deal also they are good quality brushes and very affordable.
