My Favourite Eye Shadow Brushes: High End & Drugstore
My Favourite High End Brushes
Smahsbox Travel Eyeshadow Brush: This brush is not travel size but is called a "travel" brush because it's really all you need. You can apply your eye lid colour and blend another colour into your crease with just this brush. I can't find this online but if you ever come across it I really recommend it.
MAC 217: I own three of these and I think this is the best MAC eyeshadow brush I've tried. If you can only buy one high end eyeshadow brush I recommend this one. I use it to blend the outer edges of my eyeshadow or to blend a dark eyeshadow into my crease. Available at MAC.
MAC 239: This is a mini from one of their Christmas brush sets (which I highly recommend!). It has similar hairs to the 217 so you can blend with this brush as well. Available at MAC.
Lancome 11: I've had this brush for about 5 years and it's still in perfect condition. It's incredibly soft and well made. I used this to apply colour to my eyelid. Available at The Bay.
Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush: To be completely honest this brush along with the other Real Techniques eyeshadow brush below are all I need. I use this to apply colour to my eye lid and it works for both powder and cream eyeshadows. Part of of the Your Eyes Starter Kit. Avilable at Wal-Mart and Farley Co.
Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush: I use this to blend eyeshadow into my crease and find this works similarily to the MAC 217 despite the differences in their appearances. Also works well with concealer. Part of of the Your Eyes Starter Kit. Avilable at Wal-Mart and Farley Co.
N0.7 Blend & Contour: Basically the MAC 217 but cheaper! This isn't the best made brush but it's lasted me a long time and cost next to nothing. Available at Target.
Does anyone have a favourite eyeshadow brush that I haven't listed? Please let me know.
