When I first got into makeup I was so excited about every new product I added to my collection (that hasn't changed). I watched youtube tutorial after youtube tutorial. The one thing that became clear to me quickly was that having a well rounded makeup collection is a lovely thing. However, without the right tools you won't get very far. When I first started this blog, I wrote a post about brushes. Since then I have done a lot of homework about brushes on a budget. Without a doubt the number one budget brand is Real Techniques. The brand was created by sisters Sam and Nic Chapman. Makeup artists from the UK. Real Techniques makeup brushes have since grown in popularity and are now sold around the globe. The best part is, they are affordable. For $40 you can have all the brushes you will ever need.
Set #1 - Eye makeup starter set. This collection comes with everything you need to apply eye makeup. It comes with 5 brushes and a cute travel case! All for under $20 CAD. Inside you will find (from left to right):
Set #2 - The core collection. These 4 brushes allow you to create a flawless finish. A long with the travel case you will find (from left to right):
These brush sets can be found at Wal-Mart for $18.97 each. You cannot get much better than that! They are great quality brushes and together these two sets give you a fantastic brush collection that will allow you to create any makeup look you want! If you own these brushes let me know what you think! I'd love to hear from you.
Thanks for reading!
