Hi! You asked for it, so here it is – My Makeup Brush Collection. This is one half the size of what my collection used to be.
Pr + purchased by me.
My Makeup Brush Collection
Two things have allowed me to cut my brush collection in half:
1. My Wayne Goss Eye Makeup Brushes
With my Wayne Goss Eye Makeup Brushes, I just don’t need as many eye brushes because I reach for those brushes over and over again. they work so well to blend colors that they’re just about all I need.
2. Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner
Instead of only washing my brushes once a week (and having a HUGE pile by the end of the week), I can clean my brushes daily and they’re dry in minutes with the Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner. So I need less brushes. I partially had so many brushes so that I could use a brush once and put it into the ‘to be cleaned’ pile. And to be honest, I could still probably pare my brush collection down even more, since I no longer need to have 2 or 3 of some of my face brushes. I cut my Real Techniques brushes down from the 3 and 4 I had of some to 1.
I also really need to let go of my first MAC brushes because I noticed while filming this video that the handles are chipped at this point. Same with my Medusa Makeup brushes.
