  11. Every morning routine….

    190 (moisturiser), 187 (liquid foundation), 150 (powder on liquid foundation), 217 (for eyeshadow) and/or 266 (fluidline), 168 (contour cheeks with emote), 182 (blush).

    I love the 239 for packing colour but I rarely have time to do that… so I use the 217 as my all around eyeshadow brush since it blends beautifully! =D

    Sonia Kashuk brushes for the eyes (small/large eyeshadow brush, and blending brush)
    MAC 266 (with fluidline)
    MAC 109, I fell in love with this brush! Even though it’s a small contour brush, I use it for my Mineralized Loose foundation. It’s really good for buffing!

    Cant thank my sweet hubs enough for getting me my first brush set from MAC few Christmases ago.

    I don’t think I’d be able to do makeup without :

    Face – 129, 187, 168 and 194
    Eyes – 239 (fave of the lot!), 209 (great with the gel liner), 217 (best blending brush ever!), 219 (this is best used for smuding the lower lash line for that smoky effect), 224, 249 and 266 (great for the brows!)

    Well, I plan to get the Costco brush set that comes out this year, and hopefully all three of the MAC brush sets coming out soon.. And maybe some NYX brushes and Everyday Minerals brushes..
    But otherwise, I only have 4 brushes, all by SPAresources which I got at Wal-mart. They’re pretty good. :)
