Make Up Brush Collection: Eyes

As with my face make up brushes I have quite a few brushes for the eyes. Unlike the face brushes I have a variety of eye brushes from a variety of different brands. I have a mixture of Real Techniques, Jane Iredale and also a few from MAC and one from Urban Decay. 

The four brushes I use to pack colour onto the eyelids. The first came in the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, and is duo ended. I only use the shorter of the two sides and this is when I want to make a colour really pop in the centre of my eyelid. The next two brushes are from Real Techniques, in the Niks Picks collection. Unfortunately, the name has rubbed off on the first, but is brilliant for adding colour all over the eyelid and is super soft. The next is the Angled Shadow Brush and I like to use this in the inner corner and also to highlight the brow bone. The final is from MAC and it is the 287SE, it is a duo fibre brush so leaves the eye looking very natural. 

Next I have three blending brushes. The first is from Jane Iredale and I use this when I want to create a transition colour in the crease of the eyelid. The next is the MAC 286SE, it’s a very soft blending brush and I like to use it with extremely dark colours in the outer part of the eye. The third brush is also from MAC and is the 217 and is my favourite eye brush. It blends seamlessly into the crease and I use it everyday. 

 The final two brushes for eyeshadow are ones I use to apply a dark shade into the outer part of my eye. They both come in the form of a dome brush and are brilliant at creating a sharp look. They are from the Real Techniques Bold Metals range and also Jane Iredale. 

The last two brushes in my collection are Angled Liner/ Brow brushes. The first is from Jane Iredale and I use it to apply my Brow Zings by Benefit. I love the way this brush makes my eyebrows look very natural and does not cake them in product. The final brush is from Real Techniques and I use this with my MAC Fluidline to create a precise line along the lashes. 

What is your favourite eye brush?
