Over the last year or so I feel like I have come across some absolute gems in the beauty world that has allowed me to up my makeup game and really helped me out with my makeup skills. I'm hoping to make this into a little series of how to improve your make up skills with tips and tricks to consider if you're stuck in a bit of a makeup rut. I feel like I always find a new area of makeup that I want to work on and improve, and I'm constantly looking for ways to better my techniques and just get better at makeup artistry. This week I wanted to share some of my makeup brush finds that have helped me out so much with doing eye makeup you would not even believe. It really is true when they say it's all about the makeup brushes you're using, and I've found some pretty affordable brushes that work amazingly.

First up is a big, fluffy blending brush, this particular one is from Morphe and is the M504, which you can find here on beauty bay. If you showed me this brush a few years ago I wouldn't have known what to do with it, it's just so big it looks more like a face brush that something I'd use on my eye. Since purchasing it, its one brush that I constantly reach for. I love using this for blending out any of my shadows, it works so well and creates such a seamless gradient. Although it looks really big and fluffy, and like it would more hinder than help your eye look, it's quite firm and keeps its shape quite well, helping you to precisely blend out your shadows.

Speaking of Morphe, my next brush pick is from their elite range, which has just been revamped with brown tips instead of white (it's the only difference I can tell between them personally). This brush has honestly changed my life, I picked it up on a whim and is now my holy grail brush for applying product to my crease, I love its shape, its size, its length-everything. It fits perfectly into my socket and blends the products as I go so I'm not left with a harsh streak of colour that is impossible to blend out. If you're not so sure, I'd definitely recommend trying it out yourself. I used mine so much and so often I've gone out and bought a few more so I didn't have to clean this one as much (Cringe!).

Sticking with the affordable theme, my next brush is an oldy but a goody. This is probably the oldest eye make up brush I own, and definitely the first of the "good makeup brushes" I bought. It's the base shadow brush from Real Techniques, which I actually use for everything, not just applying a base product. I like this for applying eyeshadow to my crease, blending shadows out, applying an all over colour; you name it this brush will do it. In the mini tutorial pics I've used this to apply a blown out transition shade which it works perfectly for. It's also lasted me literally years and year.

It's Real Technique sister, the accent brush is also a must have for me. At first when I bought the set with this brush in, this brush sat in my makeup brush holder for months (if not years?) without being touched as i simply couldn't even think of a use for it. In the last year or two I've started to experiment more with smoked out lower lashes and this has been perfect for that. I love using this to deepen up the colour right at the lash line as it's so small it allows you to be really precise. I've also started using this for cut creases, again due to its teeny-tinyness and ease with precision.

Another teeny tiny brush that I couldn't live without for wing liner is this Grimas 1 brush that I picked up off eBay. I'm still not quite sure if this is actually a makeup brush or an art brush, but its perfect for getting a really sharp faded out wing and applies the product so precisely that wings just become so much easier.

The next brush is a pencil brush I picked up in a set from BH cosmetics, and it's become a permanent staple in my brush collection. I love this for creating an outer v and blending it into my crease. It's also great for smoking out your lower lashline and comes in handy in pretty much every eye look I do. It's my favourite pencil brush I've tried because it's fluffy, so the product is evenly applied with no harsh lines, but it also holds it shape so you can apply product just where you want to.

Lastly, and the most expensive of the bunch, is a brush I previously just didn't get. It's the Zoeva Luxe crease brush, that now is used in every eye look I've done for the last year, and probably will always be a strong contender for most useful brush I own. When I first got this brush I didn't think it was all that. It felt scratchy and didn't blend well, and washed horrifically. But I persevered and tried washing it with a few different products and drying it more carefully (its definitely more delicate than my other brushes), and the hairs don't seem to be so scratchy any more, and it's shape is exactly what I need when I don't want a super precise application of shadow in my crease or outer v. It blends out perfectly and I take back what I previously said. This brush gets an A*.

Let me know in the comments what your must have eye makeup brushes are, I love picking up new brushes and I'm constantly on the hunt to expand my collection.

The makeup look done in the mini tutorial was done using the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette, which you can find my full review of here. I've put a little step by step image below if you want more details of what exactly I used each brush for. If you like this kind of post and want to see more of my must have brushes for different areas let me know!
