You can’t achieve a flawless pro look without a set of pro tools so let’s focus on brushes, or better yet, on great-looking and useful brush sets that will help our skills, talents and faces blossom! These sets often cost less than what you’d normally have to pay for individual brushes and they come packed in interesting, practical protective cases. Interested to see the ones I like? Well, here’s my list of 7 great and useful brush sets
1. Kat Von D Brush Set
Price: $48.00 at sephora.com
This stylish wicked Kat Von D set has everything you’ll need for perfectly painted eyes and it comes in a cool black case, too. That way, you can finally have all of your tools in one place. It contains two angled brushes (one for the eyes and one for the brows), smudge and blender brushes to help you create that sexy smoky eye look and, finally, an eyeliner brush for precise, pro finishing touches.
2. Tokidoki Pittura Brush Set
Price: $35.00 at sephora.com
This is one of those useful brush sets that just happens to be a lot of fun, too! These three cute Tokidoki characters will help you apply the eye shadow, work it into the crease and enhance it with a perfect dose of eyeliner. Soft, antibacterial brushes can be used both wet and dry and work perfectly with powder, cake or cream eye shadows.
3. Mineral Brush Set
Price: $19.00 at sephora.com
But my list of fabulous and oh-so-totally useful brush sets is far from being finished. The next piece I’d like to bring to your attention is this elegant Sephora find designed to help you get the most of your mineral makeup. All-over brush, compact powder brush and two smaller ones for applying mineral eye shadow and a concealer really prove that style, beauty and health can go together.
4. Giorgio Armani Mini Brush Set
Price: $100.00 at shop.nordstrom.com
Could you ever say no to this fabulous designer brush set? These five small brushes are packed in a cute leather pouch that will make sure that you never travel without your essential make up tools again! From a fabulously soft all-over brush to a useful blender brush – everything you’ll need to look best on your holidays can be found right here, in this classy Armani set.
5. Advanced Airbrush Set
Price: $65.00 sephora.com
In case you’ve already acquired a pretty good amount of knowledge about what goes where and what brushes to use in order to get the best effects, moving forward is the only logical thing to do. And is there a better brush set to help you practice your layering and airbrushing skills? I’d say no!
6. Tokidoki Blush Brush
Price: $25.00 at sephora.com
This hardly falls into the category of useful brush SETS but since it makes a very nice addition to the tokidoki set I wrote about above, I simply couldn’t leave it out. The set of three tokidoki figures will make your eyes perfect. Then it’s time for this lovely pink brush to help you paint and define your cheekbones.
7. Perfect Pink Blush Set
Price: $60.00 at sephora.com
This fabulous pink set includes not two or three but ten great brushes, which is pretty much everything you’ll ever need. It’s perfect if you’re constantly on the go and prefer to have everything in one place because all you’ll need to do is fold this case and voila! You’re ready to roll!
What do you think about these nice and, in my opinion, totally useful brush sets? I’d say bigger sets definitely pay out more, although having a few carefully chosen smaller ones is a pretty good strategy, too. Let me know what you think, too!
