I've been wanting to do a post on my most used eye shadow brushes for a while now. Brushes are definitely something that I really love to collect. I don't know what it is about them, but i love trying new brushes all the time! The ones in this post are definitely favorites out of the ones that I own!
|Sephora Professionnel Angled Liner Brush #15|
-Mac 210: I found this brush recently at my Cosmetic Company Outlet and couldn't pass it up at such a discounted price! This brush applies the liner a little more precisely than my Loew-Cornell brush so it's a bit easier to do thinner or winged eyeliner. It applies the liner perfectly. I love both of these brushes equally and like to alternate them so I have a clean one when the other is dirty!
|ULTA Professional Eyeshadow Brush|

-Mac 239: I've owned this brush for a few years and it's a great eyeshadow brush. It packs on eyeshadow really well and very precisely! It picks up color very well--sometimes I do have to realllly pack it on, but overall it picks up and deposits the color nicely. Because of the size and shape I feel like I'm able to apply color exactly where I want it: it helps put specific colors on certain parts of the lid (for example if i want an inner corner color, one on the lid, and one on the outer lid). You can also use the tip of it to apply color to the outer-v or crease! Definitely an eye shadow brush to consider if you need a great, versatile brush!
|Mac 219 Pencil Brush|
|Top: Rock & Republic Blending Brush, Middle: Sonia Kashuk Blending Brush, Bottom: Mac 217|
-Sonia Kashuk Blending Brush: This was my first blending brush from a few years ago and I still love it! It blends the crease out really well. It's not as soft as my R&R brush but I still love it! I alternate between my this and my Rock & Republic brush since they both serve similar purposes.
-Mac 217: This is another one of my favorite brushes ever. I use this together with my Mac 219 for perfect results. First I apply eyeshadow to the crease and outer-v with the 219, then blend what was applied with the Mac 217. Another way I use it is to apply color to the crease since it fits perfectly in my socket! It also works great to apply color to the lid (a little lighter than the mac 239).
I really hope you found this post helpful! Out of all these brushes, I think the ones that I couldn't live without are the mac 219, mac 217, mac 239, and either one of the eyeliner brushes I mentioned (leaning more towards the mac 210). Mac brushes are really expensive and it's taken me years and years to build up my collection but I genuinely think that there are fantastic eyeshadow brushes at all different prices!
What are some of your favorite eye brushes that you like to use!?
