My Top 10 Make-Up Brushes

For those of you who didn't whizz on over to Lipglossiping to see my guest post, why the hell not!? Thanks to my feature on Charlotte's site and Charlotte for giving me the spot, I have a load of new members on here so hello to all you and welcome to the madness!
If you didn't get a chance to catch my post on here - You still can see it by the way - I thought I would post it up here as well so it sits alongside the rest of my Top 10 posts which I have been doing. So far, I've covered "My Top 10..." nail polishes, blushers, lip products and today's is make-up brushes...

Seeing as my Top 10 series has been so popular, I figured that I should do a Top 10 feature on my makeup brushes too. Now, I own a hell of a lot of makeup brushes and although some of them are unloved, I try to rotate them and use them at least once or twice.
A lot of conversations on Twitter amongst beauty bloggers and general girly chit chat revolves around makeup brushes and which ones are the best to buy but it always comes down to personal preference. Some like firm brushes while others prefer super soft ones, others think that expensive brushes are best while others feel that high street versions are way better – It’s all personal.

Anyway, I’m waffling on way too much so let’s get cracking! These are my most used and most loved makeup brushes...

Unknowingly, it turns out that I have 5 main face brushes and 5 main eye brushes which I definitely didn’t plan but I guess it all works out in the end.

So, the face brushes...
From left to right:

1. Bobbi Brown Blush Brush
2. Bobbi Brown Powder Brush
3. Crown Brush Stippling Brush
4. Crown Brush Flat Top Kabuki Brush
5. *Inika Cosmetics Kabuki Brush

Now, the eye brushes...
From left to right:

1. Bobbi Brown Eye Blender Brush – Very similar to MAC 224 but with longer bristles
2. Inglot 6SS Blending Brush – Another one that is very similar to MAC 224 but slightly wider
3. Bobbi Brown Ultra Fine Eye Liner Brush
4. Boots Eyeshadow Brush – Probably my favourite eye makeup brush EVER
5. Crown Brush Eyeshadow Brush

I have loads of Bobbi Brown makeup brushes in my collection purely because I used to work for them but even if I hadn’t, I definitely would have invested the money. They don’t shed and they’re made so well that you can’t go wrong with them – Plus, each brush is already labelled so even someone with no existing knowledge of makeup brushes can use them with ease.
Other brands of makeup brushes that I use include: MAC, Royal & Langnickel, The Body Shop and Essence of Beauty. The next brushes on my list are Sigma makeup brushes so I might have to wait until pay day to splash out on a full set of those!

What are your favourite makeup brushes or the ones that never let you down?
Make sure you drop a comment in the box or whizz over to my blog and let me know over there!

Until next time...
Keep swivelling those hips in your
