It’s All in the Brush

Brushes are the tools for success to create a flawless face.  You don’t need 30+ brushes to create your look either.  It’s all about having the correct tools for what you are doing.  If you are just starting out with makeup or want to re-vamp your brush collection, these are my must have brushes that I grab every day.

Brushes can be expensive!  For this simple reason, I love Morphe Brushes.  They have beautiful brush sets that make great gifts and are completely affordable too.  Also, ELF and ECO Tools have fantastic brushes, if you choose the right ones.  They can be found at Target!  Some of there eyeshadow brushes literally retail for $3 or less.
