Finding the Best Makeup Brushes


In order to achieve a fabulous makeup, it is not enough to have the best foundation, the most amazing bronzer and blush and the most gorgeous eyeshadow colors if you don't have the right tools to apply it. We sometimes concentrate all our efforts on finding what is the best makeup product for our skin tone, which colors will make stand out our best facial features and sometimes we forget the importance of having the most suitable makeup brush for each product. Because no matter how good the makeup is, if we are applying it with an incorrect or a bad quality brush, the results are not going to be as good as we want.

And it's really a pity because we sometimes invest a lot of money in buying high-quality makeup and don't take the same approach for the brushes. I'm saying this because that was my mindset a few years ago. I didn't have any good makeup brushes, I was just buying something that was cheap because I thought that, for example, if the eyeshadows were good then they will look good. But, I found it really hard to apply them correctly and in the end, the result wasn't as good as I have expected because they weren't so blended or they weren't applied in the right places.
For me, buying makeup brushes was complex because there are a lot of options, a lot of different brushes for different things and I didn't know so much about the topic. I still don't consider myself an expert on this but since I have started to learn about it and invest in a few good brushes I have seen a lot of difference. Now, for example, it is a lot easier for me to do my eyes make up because I have an angeled crease brush which allows me to apply the eyeshadow in the right place and blend it perfectly. Plus, there is no better sensation than applying your favorite makeup product with a brush that feels extremely soft and gentle.

So, when I found out that Reviews.com had made a complete list of the Best Makeup Brushes I thought it was going to be a great resource to share with you because I know how much we struggle to find the brushes that are suitable for us and I know how confusing this task may be, especially if you are on a budget and don't have lots of money to buy different brushes to test. You just want a couple of makeup brushes that are good quality, affordable, durable and that suit your needs.
Reviews.com made all the testing for you. They spoke to dermatologists and makeup artists to understand what to look for in a brush and then hand-tested 70 brushes from 16 popular brands (including Chanel, Sephora, Tarte, MAC, Real Techniques, Sigma and many others) and then they picked up their favorites taking into consideration their softness, durability, grip and, of course, design.

They tested 5 different brushes from each of the selected brands: a liquid foundation brush, a blush brush, a general eyeshadow brush, an eyeshadow smudge brush and an eyeliner brush. The results were that Sephora PRO Collection was their top pick in the overall, Tom Ford brushes were the best for Luxury makeup Brushes and Sonia Kashuk Tools were the best on a budget.

Also, this resource has very interesting tips about how to properly use your makeup brushes and how to properly clean them so you can make the most of your tools. 
So, if any of you are considering buying new brushes I strongly recommend reading the guide from Reviews.com in order to find out how the brushes you are planning to buy are going to perform or if you don't have anything in mind, then even better because you will find many useful recommendations. 
I hope you find this post interesting and useful and I would love to know what is your favorite makeup brushes brand and why?
