(top to bottom): CS Italian Badger Buffer Brush, MAC 187, TBS Foundation brush and Red Earth Kabuki
EYESHADOW BRUSHES (Large) to apply colors on the entire lid:
(top to bottom): Fanny Serrano large e/s brush, Marrionnaud large e/s brush and Artdeco e/s brush
EYESHADOW BRUSHES (Small) to apply color on specific eye area like under the brow bone or i use them to apply another shade of eyeshadow on the lid. Example: I use a larger e/s brush to apply color on the inner corner of the lid, and a smaller e/s brush to apply color on the outer corner or mid of the lid. (i told you, i have no idea sometimes as to where and how i am to use these brushes..hehehe)
(top to bottom): Elianto e/s brush (small), MAC 239 and e/s brush from Watercolors
EYE CREASE BRUSHES to apply color on the crease. Sometimes, i use them to smudge colors on the lower lids (MAC 219) or to blend! :P
(top to bottom): Smashbox bullet brush, MAC 219 and crease brush from Life & Companion
ANGLED EYESHADOW BRUSHES to apply color on the outer-V or on the eye contour.
(top to bottom): Fanny Serrano angled e/s brush, Silk Naturals ultimate dual eyeshadow brush and Prestige angled e/s brush
BLENDING BRUSHES to blend colors. I know that only one of these brushes are supposed to be used for blending while the others are still for applying colors on the lid...but again, this is how i use them. heheh..i am such a dork when it comes to brushes!
(top to bottom): Prestige Shadow Sweep brush, Elianto large e/s brush and Prestige Shadow Crease brush. Out of the 3, most of you might say that the last would be the most appropriate for blending...but hey, the other two works for me too!
CONCEALER BRUSHES to apply concealer (cream or powder):
(top to bottom): Bare Escentuals Maximum Coverage Concealer brush and Sonia Kashuk concealer brush (part of a set). For cream concealers, i use the latter while for powder type-concealers i use the BE brush.
these are TIANWEI brushes...really cheap (Php30++) but it really gets the job done. I use them to line my upper lash lines.
(top to bottom): Fanny Serrano smudger brush and Prestige Lip liner brush. (grins) and i use them to line my lower lashlines. hehehhe
"FOILING" BRUSHES to apply my eyeshadow pigments wet. I am still trying to get the hang of it, so for the meantime i use these:
(top to bottom): TIANWEI eyeshadow brush and Everbilena small e/s brushes
And when i travel, i try to make them all fit in my TFS makeup brush holder...hehehe. (Somebody get me a bigger one!)
at home, i just put them on a cup (yep, a cup! picture to follow hehehe)
NOTE: i have other brushes (mostly from CoastalScents) but i havent used them yet. so basically, the brushes here are the ones i've been using everyday.
Geesh, seeing them makes me think of that idea i got from another forum, which is..."ONE MAC e/s BRUSH A MONTH." (grins) Yeah, i am lusting over their brushes...i wanna get them all. And maybe when that time comes, i would already know where and how to use them...hehhee
hmm..me thinking..."but can't i just get them all at once and have a MAC BRUSH-NO BUY for the next few months?"
