I found my makeup looks better when applied with makeup brushes, but sometimes we don’t have the money to afford top of the range brushes. Well here’s some budget alternatives to consider.
By far my favourite brand of brushes, the bristles are so soft and don’t irritate my skin like some budget brushes. Comes in sets or singles, I remember buying my first RT brush (Stippling brush) and since then I’m hooked! Most of the brushes are versatile and the quality you get for the price is too good to miss.
Prices start from £5.99, can be purchased from Boots.com here
An eco-friendly and cruelty free brand with affordable prices, what’s not to love? They’re long lasting and dry quick when washing, hardly any fall outs either. The bristles are soft, not as soft as RT but still soft enough to not irritate my skin, I can’t fault them.
Prices start from £4.99, can be purchased from feelunique.com here
Not only does Elf do makeup but also brushes, the Studio collection and Essentials collection. You can get them in sets or individual at incredible prices. Personally, I prefer the Studio collection as the bristles are softer, but both collections work great when you’re on a budget. Plus, Elf constantly have discounts and flash sales, it’s definitely worth looking.
Prices start from £1.95, can be purchased from elfcosmetics.co.uk here
Shocked? I know I was when makeup artists and beauty bloggers were suggesting Ebay as a place to buy brushes. Yes, this one has the most risk of disappointment but if you’re careful you could find treasures! My advice, never buy used brushes even if they have been cleaned vigorously, you don’t know what they’ve done with them. Also read reviews, if there’s too many negative responses it’s a sign to avoid.
Prices vary & change frequently, find then on Ebay here
And that’s it!
