Tips For Selecting Synthetic Makeup Brushes

My tips for selecting synthetic makeup brushes!

The synthetic brushes I love using for the face and eyes as well as body run the gamut in terms of functionality and shape.

Moreover, I enjoy using a variety of synthetic brushes from both high-end as well as affordable brands.

Also I share my favorite brand in the category of beauty sponges as well as a few brush sets.

Beauty Sponge Favorite:

My top choice is the beautyblender pro now I know there are tons of other beauty sponges on the market and I’ve tried many of them, however the beautyblender brand as a whole remains in first place.

I especially like the beautyblender BESTIES Charcoal Blend and Cleanse Starter Set because it includes blendercleanser and silicone scrub mat as well as the beautyblender pro.

Now although beautyblenders are my absolute favorite in this category, I do enjoy using the silicone bottom of the 3 Sided Angled Face Sponge by e.l.f. Cosmetics to apply my face primer as well as to blend certain cream highlighter; and blush as well as bronzer makeup items.

Additionally, individual high end and luxury makeup brushes as well as brush sets can also be purchased in store or online from the

Cosmetics Company Store

You’ll find brushes by brands like Tom Ford, MAC Cosmetics and Smashbox at the Cosmetics Company Store.

You may even be able to find some really great quality brushes at stores like, Burlington, TJ Maxx and Marshalls.

For instance, I scored the Laura Mercier Glow Powder Brush at TJ Maxx for less than 40% of its retail price (what a steal!).

Here’s something to keep in mind, the phrase “there are no rules to makeup” definitely even applies when it comes to makeup brushes as well as, because many of these brushes are multitaskers

For example, I also use the e.l.f. Flawless Concealer Brush to pack eyeshadow all over my lid as well as for blending; and in addition to bronzer I use the Ulta Bronzer Brush to apply my blush.
