How important it is to use makeup brushes? Are they important? Can I just use my fingers…or a sponge or one of those little spongy eyeshadow applicator thingy’s. These are questions I actually get all the time. The Importance of Makeup Brushes. And, which ones are worth buying??
Here’s my answer:
There are many different companies that make makeup brushes but, we will get to that later. The first and foremost important thing to know is that Makeup Brushes MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE when doing your makeup. I think that they are essential if you want a more well blended, professional, flawless looking finish.
Many people say, “My makeup doesn’t look like yours”, “I can’t get mine to look the way I want”, or just in general, “I’m not good at makeup”. My opinion is that if you have a good set of makeup brushes and you are using them, you will get better results.
Synthetic or real hair…doesn’t matter. Whatever you like better. Quality is Important though. How the brush is made and the cost of the brush usually play a big part in a good makeup brush.
Here are some brands that are known for quality and some price ranges for the thrifty to the spendy.
Sonia Kashuk Brushes : These brushes are sold at all TARGET stores. They are good quality and made for the everyday woman to the experienced makeup artist. I have a set that has sleek white handles and here are some of the photos I have of these brushes. You can find just about every style brush you’re looking for with the Sonia Kashuk Brand. They are well made and soft. These brushes range from about $4.99 a piece to $9.99.
They are definitely worth checking out if you want some quality brushes that won’t break the bank.
