My Makeup Brushes

Hello Everybody!

If you read my post here, you will know that one thing I wanted to do in February was to clean my makeup brushes and I did! I case you were wondering I just use soap and water to gently clean them and then lay them out to dry. Let me know what you use in the comments :)

At the moment I really like my collection of brushes and all of them are of excellent quality. I keep them on my dressing table in this pretty white pot that my sister gave me for Christmas so I am sorry I have no idea where it was from (although I think it might be to put candles in... but never mind haha).

A large bulk of my brushes are Real Techniques ones and this is mainly because I purchased the Sam's Picks set from which I think is a great range of brushes and a good start if you don't own any brushes at all. My dad described Real techniques as 'expensive' haha but they are great quality and I don't think they are expensive at all for what you get! The two other Real Techniques brushes I bought individually as you can see in some of my many hauls. The other three brushes are Zoeva and MAC so are more high end but I love them so much too :) I talked about these brushes in more detail a while ago which you can read about here.

List of Brushes:

- Real Techniques blush brush 
- Real Techniques multi task brush
- Real Techniques setting brush
- Zoeva 127 Luxe Sheer Cheek
- Real Techniques buffing brush 
- Real Techniques expert face brush
- Real Techniques pointed foundation brush
- Real Techniques essential crease brush
- Real Techniques fine liner brush
- MAC 239
- MAC 217 

At the moment I am loving the Real Techniques buffing brush to blend in my foundation. It creates an amazing finish. I also love the MAC 217 but this is expensive and I think Zoeva may do a similar brush for a cheaper price. The two purple Real Techniques ones are probably my least favourite although I do still like them :)

My favourite brush is definitely the Zoeva one as it is soooo soft! I really want to purchase more of their brushes in the future and I would absolutely love to own the rose gold set at some point.

Love, Phoebe x
