Weekly Beauty Challenge: Brushing Up

Talk to any makeup artist and they'll tell you that the secret to getting a flawless face is really quite simple: It's all about the brushes. Brushes are the one beauty tool I never feel guilty about buying, because I know each one will be useful (case in point, it took me 3 tries to find the best angled liner brush to perfect my cat-eye, but I still use my other liner brushes to create different looks). And looking at these new Sephora Collection PRO Visionary Brushes, I definitely feel like there's one or two in the collection that I need to snag!


So for this week's Beauty Challenge, let's talk brushes. How many brushes do you own? Which ones are your favorite? Snap a pic of your brush collection and Show & Tell in the comments!

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Brushing Up

I would be hard put to count all my brushes!  I have a core set that I use everytime, but I got the Sephora Brush Belt plus brushes when it was on clearance, so I have a full set extra. It was such a great deal at $6 per brush that I couldn't pass it up. Probably around 50?

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Brushing Up

@prettyinpa - you got the brush belt? *jelly*. It really was a fantastic deal. I'd feel like a pro with all of those brushes on my hip (it's the very one some members of our PRO team use, actually).

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Brushing Up

It took awhile to count it all...proud to say I have 28 brushes!   Smiley Happy

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Brushing Up

I have way too many; Not counting my 15 piece MAC travel brush set (they have tiny handles & I only use them for traveling) I have at least 46. I'm in the process of moving so I'm sure there are some hiding somewhere in a bag or train case. 

The brands range from MAC, Sephora, Laura Mercier, Chanel, Urban Decay, Bobbi Brown, Hourglass & Too Faced. It took me a LONG time to collect the brushes I have, but I love them all. I hoard eye brushes the most, even with spot cleaning after each use, those get dirty the quickest and I only deep clean every week (every other week if I'm really lazy). 


Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Brushing Up

I looooooove my makeup brushes!  I'm so fickle though it seems like i find a new favorite once a month!  Right now my favorite brush for finishing powder is Real Techniques Duo Fiber Limited Edition.  It's perfect for a very light layer and I love the rounded shape. 


My favorite eye brushes are probably my Smashbox Studio Pop eye brushes.  The blending brush is lovely and fluffy, the smudger is perfect for powder liner, and the crease is small enough for my almost non-existent crease area.


Like prettyinpa, I got the Sephora brush belt when it was on clearance last summer.  I love the angled blush brush from that set, it feels really soft and silky.  I also really love the Pro Domed Blush Brush (which is the exact same shape as Real Techniques Blush Brush but natural).

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Brushing Up

@dannyc - You are so good and diligent about your brush cleaning! I am, sad to say...less so, lol.


@drrragon - Ok so I just bought the foundation brush that was in Daily Obsessions last week but now I want that Pro blush brush. I have a problem.

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Brushing Up

@candacebt -- lol!  it's super plushy!  it's been on clearance since they discontinued the old silver-handled Pro brushes, but I see them in Sephora sale/clearance sections every so often.  Both online and in stores, come to think of it Smiley Happy


but yeah, i know what you mean....i have to be careful about brushes because it's easy to buy too many!


p.s. i wonder if i had a cute, fuzzy pet, if i would stop buying so many makeup brushes! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Brushing Up

I own 2 makeup brushes; one face brush and one eyeshadow brush. I don't wear makeup enough to have more brushes, but I wear it enough that I need some more. I just have no ideas on where to start and which brushes are better than others. 

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Brushing Up

@drrragon - I have 3 dogs. The answer to that is NOPE. Smiley Happy


@foxinthesnow - you've come to the right place!  I recommend starting with a kit. It will give you most of the basic brushes you need for a great value. This one has all of your essential brushes in it (minus the blush brush).
