Hi everybody 🙂

Today I am going to do a run through of my favorite makeup brushes, I use Blank Canvas cosmetics and LOVE their brushes.  I never really knew what makeup brushes to use and also didn’t want to spend crazy money on brushes either!  When I went to Pippas Fashion Factory in January in the Powerscourt Hotel, she talked about different brushes and about how good the blank canvas brushes are.  I received one in the goodie bag and also another one in the goodie bag at the Into the West Blogger Network Event in the G hotel in May.

My favorite brush by far is the F20 flat buffer brush, this is part of the HD collection and I use it put on my foundation.  I am seriously in love with this brush, it feels amazing at putting foundation on and gives really good coverage.  If you even only buy one brush from this collection, you have to get this one!  This brush is currently €14.99.

The E35 flat shader is great for applying eye shadow, I use it for the base colour and also for adding a bit of glitter at the end.  The hairs are short enough so that the eye shadow doesn’t go everywhere.  This brush is currently €6.99.

I also use the E37 pencil brush for applying darker eye shadows for a smokey eye.  I like the size of the brush and it is easy to use.  I am no beauty expert and have finally managed to do a smokey eye that I like and I have to say it is all down to these brushes.  This brush is also only €6.99.

I use the E26 to blend my eyeshadow.  It is great, half the time I think I have done a disaster job with my eye shadow and then I just grab this brush to blend the colours and it fixes everything and looks good.  I have two of these brushes, I got my second in the ITWBN goodie bag and love having two of them for darker and brighter eye shadow colours.

I bought the F15 for contouring and highlighting.  I am still new to the contouring world and find this brush great, the brush is quite soft so the contouring powder is easier to apply. This brush is €14.99.

I got the G25 is a large powder brush, it is great for throwing on a bit of powder over my foundation.  I got this brush in the goodie bag at Pippa’s fashion factory.  The brush is €13.99.

These are my favorite makeup brushes, they are great prices and brilliant quality.  I wash my brushes every week and they are all still in perfect condition.  I did a blog post a while back on washing your brushes, and I have not had one problem with my brushes.

*I purchased all of these makeup brushes and received two as gifts in goodie bags as stated.  These are my views on the brushes and blank canvas have in no way encouraged me to write this post.  The blog is only for guidance on my personal views.
