Makeup brushes, there are so many makeup brushes from different brands which serve different and many purposes. Makeup brushes can make a big difference in your makeup application.
I have quite a collection when it comes to makeup brushes, but the main brand that I reach for in my brush collection are the Sedona Lace brushes. Sedona Lace brushes are great quality; I personally prefer them over my Sigma brushes and other higher end brushes that I own. They are affordable and cruelty free! I have 19 brushes from Sedona Lace but there are 7 that I absolutely love.
From left to right:
1. #312 -Synthetic Small Round:
I use this to help smudge out my eye liner for a smokey eye look. The brush is dense and perfect for buffing out eye shadow. Brush is part of their vegan line of brushes. Price: $12.95
2. EB13 – Synthetic Blender:
A cease brush, bristles are soft and dense. Makes it easier to blend quicker. I also use this brush to contour my nose while blending out those harsh lines. Brush is part of their vegan line of brushes. Price: $8.95
3. #850 - Synthetic Large Angled Contour Brush
This brush is used for contouring but it also doubles as a blush brush but I use it to highlight my cheekbones and applying blush. Smooth application. Brush is part of their vegan line of brushes. Price: $13.95
4. #480 - Synthetic Round Top
Very dense but soft, I use this for a nice coverage with my favorite CC cream on my lazy days. I also use this with my concealer underneath my eyes. Brush is part of their vegan line of brushes. Price: $14.95
5. #520 - Synthetic Angled Flat Top
I love this brush for a light application with cream contouring; it blends very easily while getting onto those hard to reach areas on your face. Brush is part of their vegan line of brushes. Price: $14.95
6. #928 - Synthetic Flat Top
Everyone raves about the Sigma F80 flat kabuki brush ($21). I own the brush but after using it three times, I just stopped once I got the Sedona Lace #928 brush. Personally the #928 brush is better at application the F80 brush. I love using the #928 brush to blend my cream or liquid products and buffing out areas like the cheeks and forehead. Brush is part of their vegan line of brushes. Price: $14.95
7. FB 01 – Jumbo Fan brush
I first heard about this brush a year ago when one of the beauty bloggers were raving about it. It’s a multi-brush but I have been using it for a light highlight, setting my foundation with a powder or sweeping off any fall out from my eyes. Price: 14.95
I have had most of these brushes for a while now and just like the rest of my Sedona Lace brushes, I have not had any shedding with my brushes. All the brushes are soft and give a great flawless coverage. The one brush that might make it to my top 8 Sedona Lace favorites is the FB 03 brush. It’s not featured here because I have only used it twice (bought it mid-March). I have been playing with it using it for contouring and highlighting and so far, it’s a keeper.
