BBB: Best Brush Brands for Your Eyes
This time, BBB doesn’t stands for Better Business Bureau. We’re looking for the Best Brush Brands for eyeshadow and liner application. There are all kinds of makeup brushes out there, many of which look identical. It’s hard to tell which are just pretty and overpriced, and which actually are worth the money. I’m here to break it down for you! This list covers the full range of pricing, so there’s something for everyone here. The following are my top picks for eye brushes by brand.
- Elf Cosmetics ($1-$3): These brushes are for those of you looking to practice your technique before investing in more professional tools. The eye brushes truly are the best brushes in their collection.
- BH Cosmetics ($3-$6 individual and up to $20 for sets): Some of my faves! Very soft, perform well, and last through washes with minimal shedding. The face and eye set is a best seller and for good reason! It’s affordable and good quality.
- Real Techniques ($6 – $30): RT originals and metals brushes are amazing quality for a mid range price point. You can use these for freelance work as a beginner MUA. The metals All Over Powder Brush and the Essential Eyes kit from the originals are my top picks.
- Crown Brushes (varies in price based on collection): Available in both natural hair and synthetic bristles, these brushes are very affordable pro grade tools. They have excellent MUA kits and their duo sided brushes are a BFF for makeup enthusiasts.
- Japonesque ($12 – $28): One of the best “drugstore” brushes out there. Available at Ulta, this line specializes in precision and pro grade ergonomics. You will find innovative tools within the Japonesque line. The pointed foundation brush is the best one I’ve tried!
- Sephora Pro ($18 – $48): Designed for pro use, these brushes are my holy grail. Sold exclusively at Sephora, these brushes will truly elevate your makeup game. Comparable to Sigma, 9r other high end brands, You will find specialty brushes, as well as full MUA kits (for around $500). These brushes do NOT shed and stand up to vigorous washing. You can catch some of the limited edition sets during the holidays as well as the occasional sale from past season collections. A word of caution, do not buy travel sets or the classic line, as their quality is much lower. The cream shadow brush is the best from the eye brushes that I’ve tried. Also the All Over Powder Brush is magical!
