FAVES | MAKEUP BRUSHES

Sometimes, I honestly think people underestimate the importance of using good brushes for their makeup application. Not only do you need to use the most appropriate makeup brushes for each product you want to apply, you need to ensure that you look after your brushes and keep them clean to avoid the spread of bacteria and reduce clogged pores which leads to breaking out.

If you are unsure which brushes are good value for money, best for on a budget or brands which maybe aren't worth spending any money on, then you need to read this article by Reviews.com. Being a maths-y person, I love reading bits of research but even more so when it's all about testing different kinds of makeup brushes. They tested 16 different makeup brush brands, using 5 brushes from each set and honestly, I found this incredibly helpful to decide which brushes I should invest more money on, along with what qualities I should look out for when deciding to purchase any new brushes. You can read their findings here and see which brand was dubbed the best.

So, I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite brushes that I currently own.
