Lux for Less: Favorite Make-up Brushes

Hello love muffins! I think what you apply your make-up with is as important as what kind of make-up you use! The brushes listed below are my go to essentials that I find myself using over and over again. To have a beat look you do not need expensive brushes! My first set of brushes came from ELF cosmetics and even today I use ELF brushes. However, ELF is not the only website with affordable brushes. Morphe has become my new favorite store to purchase make-up brushes. The prices of their brushes will usually cost from $1-$20 depending on the name of the collection. My favorite collections are Studio, Studio Pro, Duo Fiber, and MB Black. I have included my favorite brushes from those collections below! Don't worry I will include where to purchase them all and the brush number! Enjoy PL's!! XOXO

M330-Blending Crease- HERE 
To create a cut crease and give definition to a smokey eye this will be a great blending brush. Make sure to blend upward when creating a cut crease!  

M404-Small Duo Foundation-HERE
This duo fiber brush is awesome for buffing and blending in your concealer under the eye.  

MB23-Round Blender- HERE
I don’t know how many great things I can say about this brush! If you are going to buy any brush out of these favorites listed this is the brush to buy!! Perfect for any eye shape or size and makes blending a breeze.    

MB13-Deluxe Blending Fluff- HERE

MB32-Detail Angle Liner- HERE
This one brush can be used for so much more than eye liner. Use it to correct your lipstick with concealer, apply eye brow highlight, dip in makeup remover to clean up eye shadow to give that perfect V!

Small stipple brush-HERE
The small stipple brush is great for applying eyeshadow primer to the lid and to apply setting powder to the lips to create a long lasting matte lipstick. 

M218-Blending Fluff- HERE

C eyeshadow brush-HERE
When packing on eye shadow this is the first brush I reach for and with the price of only $3 you can buy multiple! The round shape perfectly applies the eye shadow, pigment or glitter in the correct spot. 

MB33-Jumbo Fan-HERE
This a great tool to use for high lighting the check bones and the collar bones to give a radiant glow! The bristles are very soft and dust the product very well on designated area. 

Complexion Brush-HERE
 My favorite affordable all over face brush is the Complexion Brush from ELF. I have used it for applying blush, blending, and applying translucent powder to set all the makeup applied to the face.

Angled blush brush-HERE
Angled blush brush great for sculpting those perfect cheek bones. Also, great to blend contour if you do not have the other brushes listed above. 

Powder brush-HERE
If you choose to just apply powder to even out your skin tone this brush buffs the powder beautifully on the face. 

F80-Flat Kabuki- HERE
Use for buffing in your foundation to create a flawless application. This brush will cost you $24 but if you are going to buy a high end brush then this should be the only one!
Blush brush-HERE
Great for applying contour around the face and neck. Also, can use for applying blush to the cheeks. I prefer the angled blush brush. 

Contour brush-HERE
This brush is perfect to buff out the line when contouring your nose. It is perfect for getting right around the hollows of your eye and around the tip of your nose.  

M460 Flat Contour-HERE
This flat contouring brush is perfect and will make your contouring process so easy and your contour will look flawless! I mean you literally come out with the perfect contour every time! This brush is a great dupe for the Nars contouring flat brush. 

M149-Small Round Contour- HERE
This is great for giving a precise line when contouring the nose and hollows of your cheeks. If you want to do a round contour like Khloe Kardashian then this is a great tool to use.
