I had been using brushes made of natural animal hair before I switched to synthetic brushes. I'm not against natural hair brushes, but the thing is that my skin is very sensitive and using such brushes made my skin itch like crazy. Mrs. Bunny brush kit by Sigma (which contains synthetic brushes) made a huge difference!These brushes are so soft! And they work just as fine as my old brushes.
Here is my current collection. I put some other brushes in Sigma cups for easy storage.
|Sigma F 80|
|Jane Iredale The Handi brush|
This brush is made of goat hair and is kind of scratchy, but it works really well with Jane Iredale mineral powder foundation, that's why I still use it.
|Real Techniques Blush brush|
|Ecotools Bamboo Bronzer Brush|
|Ecotools Blush Brush|
This brush, also by Ecotools, is very soft too! Its size and shape are ideal for applying blush. It's slightly flattened on the sides, which makes it a great brush for contouring, and that's what I mainly use it for, as I already have a blush brush by Sigma.
I also have two more brushes by Real Techniques, Lash/Brow Groomer and Fine Eyeliner Brush, which you can see in the first picture. The eyeliner brush is not very thin, but it's not thick either. I don't love it, but I don't hate. On the other hand the lash/brow groomer is perfect!It has metal teeth, which means it will last longer and will separate the lashes better.
That's it for my brush collection. I hope you liked it!
And what are your favorite brushes?
