  1. Primarily I use the 213, 239 and 219. All MAC. The 219 is my most favourite brush! It’s perfect for applying crease colours and for smudging and softening liner.. I have 2 :D

    MAC. 239, 217, 208, 222, 227, 219. I have more, but those are the usuals.

  3. MAC 239 (definitely my must have), 217 and sometimes the 219.

    Some essence of beauty brushes (CVS brand, great quality, very soft), a Tarte double-ended brush, a Sonia Kashuk eyeliner brush.

    I’m holding out for some nice sets before I buy any from mac.

    MAC 242 is my favorite brush ever :D I also frequently use Benefit’s smudger brush (now DC-ed), and a lot of Mark (by Avon) brushes, they’re really nice and the liner brush is a HG. When I remember (because I forget I have so many brushes sometimes, haha) I like to use my double-ended Tarte brushes. Oh! And this brand from K-mart (of all places) has really nice brushes (I don’t remember the name, but they come in pink envelope packaging) too!

    • I hate when they DC brushes, grrr!! My favorite brush was by Benefit, originally, though I’ve since fallen in love with the 239 instead.

    I use 2 Bobbi Browns that I stole from my mother and one MAC and occasionally 2 brushes I got for Christmas(no brand). I don’t know names and i dont know numbers.

  12. Pquanda

    MAC (all the ones people have already pointed out) and SMASHBOX, which are my favorite!

  13. Tanya

    I have some brushes from the body shop (flat, filbert shaped), as well as Loew Cornell brushes (mainly mini mop for blending) and Essence of Beauty crease brushes.

  14. Angelica

    BillyB Paintbrushes, they are the perfect brushes. I have the complete set and use them religiously.

  15. Tonee

    MAC – 213, 242, 266

  16. Sandy

    I use the 239 and 217 by MAC and a crease brush I got from Quo (Canadian brand).

  17. Amy

    I have yet to invest in super good brushes (gasp I know!) because I’d rather spend money on the make-up right now. My generic brushes have been doing just fine though, haha. I actually really like the brush that comes with the LOreal HIP pigments.

    • Renee

    • Hey Amy! I was just like you, it took me a long time before I would buy high end brushes!

  18. I use this Jane brush for my eyeshadow that I got way back in the day. It is the best one ever!

  19. Ariele
