Best Makeup Brush Sets
 Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

A little over a week ago, I shared my favorite makeup brushes with you on my Instagram story. I had multiple requests to do a full blog post on the best make up brush sets so here we are.

The above image features all of the brushes that I have. I don't use every single one of these on a daily basis, but I do use the majority. Below you'll find a break down plus links to some brushes I suggest.

Best Makeup Brush Sets:Eye Brushes

Eyes and lips are my favorite part of my makeup routine. I use the below brushes everyday for my eye makeup. 

How I use each brush from right to left. Brush 1: Japonesque 836 I use this for the darkest color in my shadow routine. This is used in the corner and blended into the crease.  Brush 2: Smudge Brush I use this brush to smudge a darker color under my lower lash line for that extra smokey effect.  Brush 3: Anastasia Brush #12 This brush is perfect for filling in my brows. I can brush them and use the angle to fill them in beautifully.  Brush 4: Shader Brush Generally, I use this brush second in my routine. I use it to blend a color in my crease and for a color on my lid.  Brush 5: Precision Shadow Brush This brush I use if I want a concentrated color and usually I will wet it with setting spray. I use it for color on my lid only.  Brush 6: All Over Shadow Brush This is normally the first brush I use for all over shadow. I use this for the lightest color to put on my entire lid or just to highlight under my brow.  *I actually have this brush set and love it!
