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 😀

The 217 is my favourite blending brush. I like how it’s more dense than the other blending brushes, not too big and not too long. It’s also brilliant for blending out concealer under the eyes.

MAC 129, 224, 227, 219- and I like smashbox brushes- Only because I got a good deal from QVC! What does everyone use to clean there brushes…? I use the MAC brush cleaner w/ a little bit of water.

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 😀 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.

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.

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.

lmfao DITTO!! :]]]]
my e/s and pigment collection are awaiting me HAHAH so are these like next 3 freaking amazing looking collections :]
i can’t wait for naughty nauticals, neo sci fi, and cool heat!!!

MAC 213 & 239 for applying color to the lid. MAC 219 w/ MAC 217 for applying & then blending in the crease OR Posh Large Crease Brush for applying/blending in the crease. MAC 227 for browbone & blending into above the crease.
