Friday Favorites: Brushes Edition

Happy Friday! I am not too happy about it being Friday because I have been off of work this week for Spring Break. Not too excited about going back to work on Monday, but I can't complain. Being a teacher really affords me a ton of family time. I am so grateful for that life.

This week I received some new brushes, and after working with them all week I am a total fan. So--I thought I would give you the run down of my favorite makeup brushes of all time.

1. Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
I have been using this brush for about a year and I LOVE IT! The densely packed bristles and soft and really give your foundation an airbrushed look. I use it on clients as well. I love that it has superior performance without the high price tag. Get yours down below.

2. Real Techniques Powder Brush
I recently received this brush and have quickly become a fan. It feels so soft and luxurious on the skin. It is well constructed and doesn't shed over time. It dispersed powders evenly and expertly. If you are in need of a big fluffy powder brush then there is no need to spend a ridiculous amount. This brush will do the trick and you will love the results. Buy yours below.

3. Real Techniques Multi-Tasking Kabuki Makeup Brush Set
I recently received this brush set and also love it. It comes with three different brushes that seve multiple functions. That is my favorite thing about a brush--versatility. If it is a brush that can only be used for one thing--then I have a hard time justifying spending money on it. I want tools that can serve multiple purposes. If you are a girl who wants a few quality brushes that can work for your whole face, then this is the set for you. It includes an angled brush that could be used for blush, highlight, powder, or even to apply foundation. It also contains a pointed brush that can be used to highlight and contour your face. Lastly, it contains a big fluffy eye brush. These types of brushes are my favorite for getting a really smokey look on the eye. And all for less than $17. That is truly a steal. Get yours below!

4. Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
Everyone who has been around in the makeup world in the last few years has heard about the craze of using Beauty Blenders for blending foundation and concealers. I love a good damp sponge to blend out of concealer, and even to bake my face. But I don't want to pay beauty blender prices. The Real Techniques version works just as well, and even has a flat bottom so that your damp sponge doesn't roll off on your dirty floor. We've all had that happen and it gives me the willies! Gross! I seriously cannot tell the different between performance and it is half the price. Buy your below!

5. Real Techniques Setting Brush
The last brush on my list is this setting brush. I love it to brush highlighter on the tops of my cheeks or to contour mu cheeks or even the sides of my nose. It is small enough to do all of these jobs. Just like all of the other Real Techniques brushes it is sturdy and won't shed on your face, but is affordable, actually it is a steal for under $4. Grab yourself one today at the link below.

So there you have it, I set of brushes that will service your entire face, but wont break the bank. Until next week my lovelies!
