My Favorite Makeup Brushes

Brushes can make a huge difference in the way your makeup applies, so investing in some good brushes is always a great idea if you're into makeup. I don't spend a ton of money on brushes, I don't own any MAC brushes because I think $26 for a small brush is crazy. I own all Ecotools brushes except for my first 4 brushes that I ever got in a set from "Flirt!", a cosmetics brand sold at Kohls. Now, there are some brushes that I just couldn't live without:
-One is Ecotools blush brush. This is an incredibly soft brush that applies blush and powder beautifully! I own two, one for powder, and one for blush. 

(Plus, the ecotools brushes are cruelty free, and their handles are made of bamboo!! And 1% of the sales goes to the planet! I know it doesn't seem like a lot, but every little bit makes a difference)
-The next brush is also from ecotools and it's the highlight brush. I use this for my crease and it works SO good!! I absolutely love it.  It's basically a tapered brush. 

-The ecotools smudge brush is great for highlighting your inner corner! It fits perfectly. 
-This is the Flirt! eyeshadow brush that I use EVERY single day that I wear makeup to apply shadow on my lid. It's soft, and picks up the color nicely. I usually pat the color on. 
-The next brush is the ecotools angled eyeliner brush. I use this to apply shadow as liner on my lower lash line. I pat it on in separate lines across the lashes. 

If I could pick five brushes, and only five brushes to use for the rest of my life, these would be them. 
This is how I store my brushes! They are in a box that some flowers came in. When the flowers died, I took the box, filled it with blue glass pebbles, and stuck my brushes in! These are all the brushes I own. 
If there are any blog posts you would like to see from me, feel free to leave a comment below, and if I have the means, I'll do it! Have a charming day!
