Make Up Monday - Starting a brush collection.

Happy Monday beautifuls. I hope you have a great week ahed of you all. For todays make up monday series I thought I would show you all a few of my brushes.

Believe it or not, I do not have a lot of brushes like you would expect someone who loves make up to have. I have only just sort of started collecting them. I still have a long way to go but I thought I would show you the essential couple that I probably could not live without.

Real techniques Foundation brush - This brush is not talked about a lot in the blog world. I brought this last year sometime. It did a good job at applying foundation but it is not the best brush for that. i tend to use my hands most days. This brush is actually really good at blending (which you would expect as it is a foundation brush) so I use this to lightly blend in my concealer. It does a really good job as it is really soft so I do not have to rub so hard against the skin. RRP: £9.99

Real Techniques Shading brush - Can you tell I like RT brushes? ;) This is my main brush for applying eye shadow. I do not have massive eyes so this works really well when I want to apply a quick colour on my eyes or even doing a little bit more of a detail eye look. It is soft and does a decent job at blending too even though it is not a blending brush at all. RRP: £7.99

Real Techniques Contour brush - I use this for blusher as well as bronzer as my face is quite small (although round) so I find it does me well to apply blush with this on the apples of my cheeks as well as bronzing where I need it. i really like it, it is nice and soft and applies enough product. It helps me from just applying it lightly or building it up on my face. RRP: £21.00 (Part of the core collection)

Barry M Angle brush - Now this is not the best quality brush out there but it does the job so that is all I can ask of it really. I just use it to fill in my eye brows. Angle brushes can also be used for lining your eyes with shadows so if you want to use that make sure the bristles are soft. Especially if you have sensitive eyes. RRP: £2.99

If you are just starting your brush collection I would say to start with the Real Techniques core collection. I have it and will be reviewing it soon. I really do like them and for the price you cannot go wrong.

All these brushes are sold in store at Boots or Superdrug.

What are your go to brushes?

Lots of love
