This is the second segiment for our makeup brush special! Last time we talked about is it worth it to buy separate makeup brushes. In this post we will talk about what makeup brushes to buy! You can buy a makeup brush kit or buy specific makeup brushes for specific jobs. Which ever you choose you should go with high quality. First check the bristles by running your hand through it. If they come out easily or feel coarse this is not a good sign. If it feels rough on your hand how will it feel on your face! Natural or synthetics depends on you and the makeup you use. If using liquid and cream foundation, cover-up etc, synthetic is easier to clean and can handle the liquid. If you have sensitive skin synthetics if not high quality could be too rough on your skin. However natural brushes can be very soft and is best for powder cosmetics. Please be aware that if you are sensitive or allergic to animal hair you may be allergic to natural makeup brushes. Also how you like your makeup look depends on the brush! If you like a dramatic deep colors for your makeup look a synthetic is ideal. If you prefer a lighter natural look of course natural makeup brushes are best. But with the amount of brushes out there what do all those makeup brushes do?
