Strokes

My makeup brushes are basic, mostly because I don't usually do complicated looks.
The Shu Uemura brush is 10 years old, literally my very first makeup brush! It's still absolutely beautiful.
Together with the M.A.C. angled brush and the Sephora eyeshadow brush, I can do all of my eye makeup with ease.
I use the Sephora #5 to apply my Shu Uemura foam UV base. It doesn't waste any product.
For contouring and blush, I'm using Sephora #40, though I am looking for a better brush. Any suggestions?
Clarins powder brush is great for loose or compact powder.

After every use, I draw the brushes across a tissue to remove excess product. At the end of the week, I wash all of them, and let them dry pointing down. I've had these brushes for years, and with care, I'm sure they will be good for a few more.

That's a great collection! I agree that you don't need to have many brushes to get by. I really like brushes from Coastal Scents. I don't have any HE brushes, though I'm considering Chanel's foundation brush.

I need some new brushes!! You just reminded me, Shu is pricey...but they last?? Might be worth it then?
