In my makeup kit: My favourite makeup brushes

As a working professional makeup artist, I have a LOT of brushes in my kit (too scared to count them actually!!)

I’m often asked what brushes I love and what are the best brushes. Of course, its a personal choice, but this week, I’m chatting about some of my favourites.

As makeup trends and products have changed, brush technology has also changed.  There are some great synthetic brushes out on the market now, so if you aspire to only use synthetic brushes there are a lot more options.

Traditionally, natural (animal) hair brushes were used for powders and synthetic brushes for liquid and cream products.  I pretty much follow this tradition still.

So, without further ado, here’s a look inside my kit:


And as promised, the list of brushes is:
