Brush time!

Soooo, I've emerged myself in learning more about makeup via youtube. BTW so many great tutorials and tips. Anyways, there's a great tutorial on Loew Cornell art brushes that make fantastic substitutes for MAC ones.

I'm going Friday to Michael's to try to track them all down. Tools and application are more important over the products...especially when I can get fantastic results for a fraction of the cost.

    I always thought that artistic brushes were very expensive - are they really less expensive that regular makeup brushes?

    Art brushes are OK for eyeshadows and stuff. I have some. Some of my favorite shadow brushes though are cheapies that I got from ELF for a buck each. The brushes that I really made an investment in, and were really worth it to me, are my kabukis and dense flattop foundation brushes. They don't really have those as art brushes.

    Definitely enjoy brush shopping. I have quite a collection these days, of all levels. You really can't have too many.

    I definitely agree Red. Eyeshadow brushes and even blush brushes. Things like kabuki or stippling brushes (MAC 187, the only brush I own by them, but it is my heart) you can't buy at the art store.

    They're made from the same things which are either synthetic, goat, or squirrel hair. I've heard several professional makeup artists suggest to buy them instead and say they use them too. So if it's good enough for them it's good enough for me.

    Here's the link to the video of the guy who did the tutorial.

    i have lots of Loew-Cornell brushes - Maxine's Mop in both the 1/4 and 1/2 inch sizes are my mainstays for eye shadow application.

    Michael's often has Loew-Cornell on sale for 25% or 40% off regularly and that's when i buy mine.

    Sonia Kashuk has excellent makeup brushes for a fraction of those of other makeup companies.
