My 6 Favorite Eyeshadow Brushes

April 14, 2011

I thought it would be fun to share my favorite eyeshadow brushes with you all. These brushes are the ones I use mostly on a daily basis and have been in really great shape after having them for some time now. My MAC ones are the oldest ones and the others have become favorites. I will have another post on my favorite face brushes in the next day or two. 
1. E.L.F. Eyeshadow "C" Brush - Seriously, who would think a brush that was $3 would be such an awesome brush? Well, it's true. I use this brush if I'm going to do a quick wash of one color, or for my highlight.

2. MAC 224 Blending Brush - This brush is so old, the lettering is completely gone. Still works like a charm for blending. Sometimes I use this one for blending concealer under my eyes also.

3. MAC 217 Blending Brush - Another blending brush that I use daily. I use this one more than the 224.

4. MAC 242 Shader Brush - This is my go-to brush every day.

5. Sonia Kashuk Small Eyeshadow Brush - I need to own more Sonia Kashuk brushes. They are really great quality for an affordable price. I bought this one at Target for I think $4? So worth it. It could replace my 242 easily.

6. E.L.F. Contour Brush - I recently bought this brush because I didn't own one like this at all. I love it, it gets the eyeshadow right into my crease with blending it out too. I use this one for adding a white shadow to the inner corner of my eyes. This brush was $3.

I hope you enjoyed this post! 
Let me know what some of your favorite brushes are!

  1. That Sonia Kashuk brush is one of my holy grail brushes- it's perfect for packing on shadow and without it fluffing all over the place and it's the perfect size. The blending brush (it's one of the ergonomics) is another favorite of mine, and the ergonomic eyelash comb.

  2. cool :D there's this one eye brush that I could do a whole eye look with. It's the Eco Tools fluffy crease brush, it works amazing!
    thanx for sharing doll :]

  3. wow!
    the elf brushes have really come a long way,right?

    haven't owned any mac eye brushes yet since i'm not into eye make-up now but i know that if i ever get the 'itch' to do eye make-up again & feel the need for good blending brushes i know that MAC is the one!

  4. The MAC 217 is one of my favourite brushes as well!
