Every Day Brushes: Eyes

I have not shown you any of the brushes that I use for my makeup routine.  As a result I have decided to do mini reviews of the brushes that I use on a daily or almost daily basis.  This should give you some insight in to the brands of brushes that I tend to prefer.

Full Tapered Shadow Brush (Bare Essentials) – I am not sure if I just have an extremely large eye lid, or what, but this shadow brush covers just my moveable lid.  I like it mostly cause it is softer than the MAC brushes (I find them scratch in all honesty).  This also eliminates the streakyness I sometimes get with ‘typical’ size shadow brushes since they are to narrow for my giant eyelids.

Soft Focus Shadow Brush (Bare Essentials) – I went through a large number of blending brushes before settling on this one, including Bobbi Brown and Aveda.  All the other brushes I tested were either to0 scratchy, or too loosely packed, or some other issue involved that just did not make them work for me.  The hairs on this brush are soft and pliable.  They do a really good job blending my shadow, and do not move it so much that it becomes a muddy mess.

I would rate this product a 5/10
