Foundation Brush- Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
This is definitely one of my absolute favorite makeup brushes this year. It provides a flawless finish for both liquid and powder foundation! It never sheds, it's super soft, and I love how it stands on its own. Not to mention it is priced at an extremely affordable price. 

Concealer Brush- Sonia Kashuk (from a set of four dual ended brushes with a makeup pouch) 
This brush is great for both liquid and powder concealer and is extremely soft to the skin. It was a great deal considering it came in a set of four dual ended brushes with a makeup pouch. 

Powder Brush- bareMinerals Full Flawless Face Brush
This was one of my very first makeup brushes that I ever used. bareMinerals was the first makeup brand that I tried, so I used this brush to apply their powder foundation to my face. It does a great job with that; however, now I use it to set my liquid foundation. It has a large face so it only takes a couple of pats to cover my entire the areas that I want to set. 

Eyeliner Brush- Eco Tools Eyeliner Brush
I never expected much from this brush since it came as a freebie with a Powder Brush; however, much to my surprise this has become a daily staple for me. It is extremely soft and works well with precision for applying eyeliner. I apply a brown eye shadow for my eyeliner, but when I tried using a waxy eyeliner with this brush, the product got stuck in the brush. Therefore, I would recommend to sticking to eye shadows when using this brush.

Blush Brush- Sonia Kashuk (from a set of four dual ended brushes with a makeup pouch) 
Once again, I have another favorite from the Sonia Kashuk set. This brush probably won't end up on most people's favorites; however, I love it because it is small so I can easily control which areas I would like to apply blush to my face. It also picks up the product great, so I don't have to use a lot of product each time.

Bronzer Brush- bareMinerals Flawless Face Brush
I never found this to be a good powder foundation brush; however, it does amazingly well at applying bronzer to my face. It is so soft, and it has a nice light touch when applying the bronzer, a key factor in a good bronzer brush. This brush is a bit pricey, but I feel that it is really worth it for applying bronzer. 

I have also done a post on my 2013 Favorites: Makeup. What were your favorite makeup brushes in 2013?

  6. I really like RT brushes! Every single one I've purchased doesn't disappoint. I kind of refuse to buy the brushes with the concave handles though, their shape bothers me a lot for some reason. One of my favorites is the RT duo fiber face brush (don't remember the exact name, but it's the biggest one in the duo fiber collection), I really like the light coverage it gives. I think I'll give Bare Minerals a try sometime - I see the brand everywhere but I haven't given it much thought.
