Beauty|| Current Brush Favourties

 
I know I missed the whole 2014 favourites post, and I did plan to do one but it just never happened down to so many complications which I had, read about them here. But I'm back on my blogging game now, with my new camera. As a makeup lover I have also expanded my love to makeup brushes and now have quite a collection, which is ever growing but here's a post of my current favourite makeup brushes.

 I did try and cut it down but as you can see there are still loads which I have chosen. And also excuse the fact that they may not look completely clean, but I promise I cleaned them it just happens that some of them have been stained which I am really sad about.
Eye Brushes
I have 3 from Louise Young; LY38, LY13, LY37. I love the Louise Young brushes they are such good quality and worth the money. I actually met Louise and she gave me these brushes but I am planning to buy some more because I love them that much. The blending brush is very similar to the MAC 216 but is from Complexion Perfection and is the White Blending Brush I bought two and love them. They are just perfect for blending out the crease and its so useful to have a couple so you can have a clean one to hand. Real Techniques of course feature loads, the base shadow brush is amazing. I wish they sold it separately because I would buy loads but it is only sold in the set, which I also love but I wouldn't want loads of the other brushes in the set but I could do with a couple more base shadow brushes. I have recently discovered that New Look seem to be expanding their makeup section and I spotted some brushes and I am actually really enjoying the eyeshadow brush(they don't have it online so I can't link it), its just a flat shadow brush perfect for packing on colour. Similar to the New Look brush is this one from Eco Tools which is in a set as well here. Some of the first brushes which I got were from ELF, the Eyelash and Eyebrow Wand is perfect for shaping your brows before filling them in and is so affordable. I also love the Blending Brush for applying a transition colour in the crease and blending out, it isn't as fluffy as the other blending brush so you can use it too apply colour as well.
Face Brushes
As you can see Real Techniques feature a lot in this selection, the majority of my face brushes are from Real Techniques but I am looking to try some others so if you have any suggestions leave them below. The Blush brush is quite new to my collection and even though its rare that I wear blush I love using this to apply my bronzer, and you can even lightly contour with it. I use it on a daily basis so now an essential for me. To apply foundation I always used to use the buffing brush which I loved but I have changed to the Expert Face Brush, which I prefer because of the shape and its slightly denser. For contouring and blending out my cream contour if I decide to use that, the contour brush is amazing I could happily buy more of these as well if they were sold singularly. Lastly the New Look Blush Brush is perfect for highlighting. I originally bought this for contouring but it gave quite a light contour but its perfect for highlighting.
