Favourite Five: Brushes

I'm quite happy doing these favourite five posts, though I want to make sure I mix it up a bit between beauty and lifestyle, so what better to talk about my favourite brushes? I have spoke about my favourite brushes before in this post last year, though since then my brushes have doubled and I've learnt a lot about what brushes to use, though a couple have stayed the same.

Real Techniques Powder Brush
This is one of the brushes included in my previous favourites. It's a large brush that picks up any powdered compact and applies evenly to the skin. It's such a perfect size for powder and feels soooooo soft.

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
This brush was also included in last year's favourites and I'm not sure my mind could be changed on how great this brush is for liquid foundation. I think you either love this or love the buffing brush and it's clear which one I prefer.

Real Techniques Cheek Brush out of the Nics Picks Set
When I reviewed this set here I wasn't too fussed on this brush, I was more keen on the eye brushes until I swapped my Real Techniques contour brush for this cheek brush and it's made a massive difference to bronzer application. It's meant to be used for blusher but works just as well for bronzer as it picks up the right amount of product and is easy to apply and blend onto the cheeks.

Anastasia Large Synthetic Duo Brow Brush
This brush was included in my January Favourites and has been a favourite ever since. It's perfect for creating a natural brow as the brush is so thin and it's not soft like a lot of brow brushes.

MAC 217 Blending Brush
Lastly is the classic eye brush every girl should own. I overuse this brush which has meant it's ruined a little quicker than it should, so I've treated myself to a new one which is still sat in it's packet until I feel it's a special enough day to use it. I've just found this brush to be perfect for everything.
