What face make up brushes should I buy, I esp need a blusher brush
Please be aware that many brushes use real animal hair such as sable or badger that are produced using cruel or fur farming methods. There are really good synthetic or bamboo make up brushes on the market if you want to buy cruelty free brushes.
I second Zoeva. I have a range of brushes including real techniques and morphe and both brands are really good but I've been really impressed with the Zoeva brushes I've purchased recently. I got mine from Beauty Bay.
I use Make up revolution hard soap brush cleanser and it's brilliant and easy to use.
I have Real Technique brushes for my face (so a couple of powder brushes, a contour brush, a blusher brush, a set of three highlight/contour brushes and another couple) then eco tools for eyes (several double ended for eyeshadow, an eyebrow brush and a gel eyeliner brush). I'd happily recommend them
I like the Laura Mercier Blusher brush. Perfect size for my cheeks and slightly flat so that you can contour a bit with it. Soft so that it doesn't give you the full Aunt Sally but not so soft that it can't pick up colour or just smears it all over with no control.
I don't like the Real Techniques blusher brush, I find it way too big on my face. It's more of a powder or bronzer brush size.
I also like the Shu Uemera #20 Pony brush. Firmer and more compact than the Laura Mercier but excellent for precision work. In an ideal world, I use the shu for great for application/precision placement and the LM for blending.
