13 Best Eye Shadow Brushes to Apply Makeup like a Pro ...

The best eye shadow brushes on the market today don’t necessarily cost a fortune, or have to be a pain to find. If you don’t know just why you should own a couple of eye shadow makeup brushes to start with, let me fill you in. For starters, if you’ve ever tried to use those little applicators that come in your eye shadow case, you probably already know they’re useless. I’m still wondering why they include them myself. Those applicators don’t adhere to your product as well as brushes do, which makes owning an eye shadow brush a must! Yet, you might need more than one to get that super glam effect you see in magazines and on celebs. Revamp your eye routine with our list of the best eye shadow brushes of all. They might just change your life, at least in the world of makeup!

Mac # 224 also!!!!

Omg one bfush cost about $15 $10 from mac no way im gonna pay that much for a brush i rather get 2 ,3 dollar ones and discard it after every week or two .

I love the Sephora brushes and Bare Minerals brushes.

What about motives ?

Surprised sigma wasn't mentioned. I love my sigma brushes and half the price as mac

Even though a lot of the brushes are expensive they're worth it. One try and the difference is huge. And they last forever too. As an artist, I can honestly say that within the last 5 years I've replaced my brushes once. Granted, I have a separate set that I use on my clients, but they're worth every penny. Personally I feel that Sigma has some of the most brushes I swear by. Like the F80 flat top kabuki.

Cannot beat a MAC brush!!

Sigma cheaper and just as good as Mac!
