Favourite Brushes for Eye Makeup

Hi guys! Today I wanted to talk to you about my current favourite eye makeup brushes that I own! These are the brushes that I use on a daily basis. They all work well and are also reasonably priced which is an added bonus!

Real Techniques

These brushes came in a kit of eye brushes together. There are two other brushes in the set (a brow brush and an eyeliner brush) but these are the three that I use.

The Real Techniques Accent Brush is a very tiny brush which makes it easy to smudge shadow under your eye.

The Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush gives a nice wash of colour to your lid. It is fluffy so if you are using different colours they blend effortlessly together.

The Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush is the perfect size for blending eye shadow into your crease. When I first got the Kat Von D Monarch palette, the pigmentation of the shadows intimidated me and I struggled to make them work without looking like a clown. This brush and the previous brush changed that. They are honestly fool-proof and perfect for beginners.

The Morphe M503 is great for blending. I did find it a bit stiff and scratchy when I first purchased it. Washing it and using a tiny bit of conditioner fixed that. It is small which makes it great for precision blending and application of eye shadow. I mainly use it for blending though.

The Morphe E14 is a dense oval shadow brush. The density makes it wonderful for packing on eye shadow, but it is also very soft to the touch. The quality of the Elite Collection from Morphe is amazing. I definitely plan on getting my hands on more of the brushes from this collection. The Gun Metal Collection from Morphe is also incredible. I don’t have any eye brushes from it, but I will be talking about it when I post my favourite make up brushes for my face.

The Sigma E30 is a small pencil brush which also works well for applying eye shadow under your eye. The pointed tip and the density of the bristles make for precise application. I also use this brush on my lid when I want to add a small, precise amount of shadow to the outer edge. This brush would also work well for highlighting the inner corner of your eye.

Oh, the beloved Sigma E40 Tapered Blending Brush… How could this brush not make the list? After seeing this brush pop up so often on YouTube, I knew I had to give it a try. I was not disappointed. This brush blends eye shadow beautifully into your crease. It creates a soft, blended wash of colour. I also use it for my transition shade when I use one. Once I got this brush I do not reach for the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush nearly as often, but they do both work well.

So there you have it… these are the eye shadow brushes that I am currently loving and use the most while putting on my make up!
