My 5 Favourite Brushes

Hi Girlies,
I hope everyone is okay and enjoying the snow! :)
I thought i would do my 5 favourite brushes as i absolutely love brushes, and as some people say 'an artist is only as good as his tools'! Which i think is pretty true, make up can look so different with the use of good brushes!


I can remember when i first started my blog that the only brushes i owned were a few body shop, some ELF & a set of GOSH brushes, but i am happy to say that i have since branched out and most of my brushes are now MAC! Although i didnt own any when i started blogging!


I think the quality of MAC brushes are absolutely amazing and go back to these day in and day out! Therefore my 5 fave brushes are all from MAC! I know they can be quite expensive but i truely believe they are worth it and will last me a long time to come!


1. MAC 239 Eyeshadow brush - Perfect brush for packing on eyeshadow all over the lid, its really soft and dense


2. MAC 219 Pencil brush - i love this brush, its perfect for adding colour into the crease on top of a lid colour, i would highly recommend this brush, i wouldnt be able to live without it!

3. MAC 116 Blush brush - i love the size of this brush & works perfectly to add blush to the apples of the cheeks

4. MAC 138 Tapered face brush - one of my most recent brush purchases is the MAC 138 which i love, such a big brush thats tapered at the top so perfect for bronzer and because its tapered, easy to buff in

5. MAC 187 Duo fibre brush - such a versatile brush that can be used for foundation, powder, bronzer & blush - i love it! Mainly use it to stipple on & buff in liquid foundation which leaves a lovely finish!

Which brushes do you love & would recommend?

  2. @Glendy: Hi Glendy, thank you so much for your comment! I am using the MAC 194 brush for concealer at the minute and think that works really well! However, i have just got the 224 MAC brush as this is meant to work really well with MAC concealer! Hope this helps :)

  4. Yay! I love your post, it's so accurate. I love using my 187 to apply my MSFS, it gives a much better finish than for example 168 would. My favourites are my 239, 182, 187, 168, 228 (tiny but really good for blending shadows near to the lash line).

    Bit pathtic that I know the numbers by heart by hey ho!

    Mwah! x

  12. Great post, the mini reviews were really helpful. I only have a few but the 187 applys foundation like a dream. Btw I've tagged you on my blog x

  13. MAC 239 is my absolute favourite! I might invest in a second one of it. I'm very curious to try 187 for applying foundation. I don't like regular foundation brushes very much, especially the 190 hmm.

    About Faux Cils - aww no, maybe it will be ok for you! It's certainly worked well for a lot of other bloggers anyway eh! But for me it just wasn't working :/

  15. I own the sigma version of some of these brushes ( and have just ordered some more!) I used my 187 to blend my blusher in but now I've ordered a 188 I might try this with my liquid foundation! I love top 5 posts xxx

  16. I don't have any MAC brushes. Most of mine are from Sephora at the moment, and they are good, but I imagine MAC will be much better. I've also heard good things about Sigma so I'll probably try those as well soon.

  17. Great favorites list. The 239 and the 187 brush are my absolute fav's! I have like four 239's and four 187's. I use those 2 for EVERYTHING. Haha, I've been wanting to get a big blush brush maybe I'll try that 138. =)
