Hello, my name is Sheila and I am a Professional Makeup Interventionist. With a lifetime of experience and obsession with the beauty industry, I am here for you all in every way related to makeup, and I will stop at no lengths to bring you information that will educate, inspire, and empower you!
Most recently I provided my expertise to a dear friend who has zero makeup brushes. Zero! This simply cannot be – good, well made-brushes truly make a difference with the application of your makeup. The best news is that great brushes are no longer expensive and prohibitive, and the ones made from synthetic hair are just as great and even better than those from natural animal hair.
To those who are just starting a kit or maybe just need help figuring out what to buy, I always recommend e.l.f. Cosmeticcs, which all range from $1 to $3 and are sold online and in Target st ores. While the $1 brushes aren’t half bad, they are not quite as great as the $3 “Studio” line of Taklon brushes, whic are truly flawless. Here are a few of my favorites.
Not the best, but at just $1, it can’t be beat!
Perfect for applying eye makeup to the lids and blending it out, feels like it should be $30 instead.
This is so great for buffing out liquid foundation and also powder, and at $3, you’ll want multiples!
Do you have any brush favorites from e.l.f. Cosmetics?
