If you are going to be doing your makeup you will want a good, solid brush collection. I don’t recommend going super cheap, not to say some of them aren’t good, but you want a good set that will last years not months. I love my Mary Kay brush set and have had it since 2009. They have held up very well to all the use I give them and I take good care of them.
Brushes in my collection:
- Powder brush
- Mineral powder brush
- Cheek brush
- Liquid foundation brush
- Eye definition brush
- Eye crease brush
- Concealer/cream eye color brush
- Eyeliner/eyebrow brush
This may seem like a lot but they each have their distinct uses. The brush I use the most is the eye crease brush. I love it for all eyeshadows because of the size and feel. The liquid brushes are stiffer and built to handle the liquid foundations and creams. The takeaway: Invest in a good, quality set. It will change your life.
To keep your brushes in good condition you need to clean them regularly. This isn’t an everyday thing but regular maintenance is important. You may want to clean your liquid brushes more frequently to prevent contamination. This is particularly true with the concealer/cream eye color brush. This will help your set last even longer.
