Question: What line of brushes would you recommend to get? (from Datgrlchelle, on youtube)
Answer: Dear Brushes,
There are so many different brushes to choose from on the market. Almost every cosmetic line sells their own set of brushes, and every line looks different, feels different and charges different prices. So where to begin?
For me, a great brush is all about how it feels. I always look for a brush that is going to feel good on my face. The main difference between all the variety of brushes out there is the hair they use to make the brushes. With that said, some of the top quality hairs like: Pony, Squirrel and Goat, can be quite expensive. So if you really love the way the brush feels, you are going to have to look at it as a great investment. I say “great” investment because a lot of the top quality brushes, if you take good care of them, can last you a really long time.
But remember, just because a high end cosmetic line sells brushes doesn’t mean that their brushes are always good. Some high end brushes can shed and break just as much as the lower end brushes. So remember, when you are about to buy a good quality brush, test to see if it sheds, because a brush that sheds a lot, you have to put it down and walk away from the counter! Always ask what kind of hair the brush is made out of and make sure you love how it feels! Because as long as it looks and feels great to you, that is all that matters, not how much it costs.
When choosing a brush, I also look at the shape of the brush head, to make sure that it is big or small enough to do the technique I want it to do. Lastly, I look at the length of the brush handle to make sure that it is going to be comfortable for me to hold and use.
Some of my favourite brushes on the market right now are:
Body and Soul: I love these brushes because they feel great and I just adore the turquoise colour of the handles!!
Pout: Makes great brushes as well, they use top quality hair and they are the cutest pink brushes ever!!
Laura Mercier: Makes great sophisticated brushes. Not only do they look great with their nice sleek black handles, but they feel great also.
Quo: Brushes from Shoppers Drug Mart, are the perfect way to get brushes that feel and look great, at an amazing price point!
And remember girls to always have fun while doing it…and like I always say, don’t forget to wake up and make up!
