My13 Favorite Beauty Tools of the Moment

I am in the process of moving and needed to basically pack up all my makeup/brushes (UGH!).
This has forced me to choose, streamline if you will, my must haves. These are the 13 tools that made the cut and got to stay out for day to day use during my move...

Beauty Blender - Pro Black $20.00
Do I really need to explain this choice? What can't it do? Foundation, concealer, cream highlighter, setting powder. In a pinch it's got you covered.

Real Techniques - 103 Angled Powder Brush 
Sadly limited edition...but it's so good! I have tweeted Real Techniques requesting this be a full time part of the range. This is my favorite brush for powdering my face and setting my makeup with a loose powder. Tweet them too if you're with me!!

Real Techniques - 100 Arched Powder Brush $20.99
This is my favorite bronzer/contour brush. Fluffy to blend, dense enough to place pigment. 

Morphe - M438 $9.99
The perfect brush with the perfect shape for setting the under-eye after concealing! It's also fluffy enough to dust off any excess.

Real Techniques - Setting Brush $7.99
Highlighting powders BFF. I love the shape and the hair desity for applying highlighter. 

Sigma - Large Shader E60 $16.99
Need to pack on some shadow? Want to use a damp brush with a metallic shade? This is the one to get the job done. This is an amazing tool for putting shadow on the mobile lid while creating a cut crease as well.

Sigma - Tapered Blending E40 $16.00
#1 brush for blending out my crease. It just makes blending a breeze and is great for laying down a blending shade.

Sigma - Small Angle E65 $14.00
This is my go-to tool for a dark shadow in the upper lash line to create a no liner look. I just press this brush, packed with shadow into my lash line and it looks like I have super thick lashes. So sharp and thin!

Sigma - Pencil E30  $14.00
I love a blown out lower lash line. Grunge it up, add a pop of color, smudge a liner, this brush has you covered.

MAC - 217 Blending Brush $25.00
A classic, perfect for deepening the crease. You could do an entire eye look with this one brush if you had to.

Anastasia Beverly Hills - Duo Brush #20
It took me a moment to get the hang of this shape of brush, but now that I have I enjoy it and can get a sharp brow or a feathered in natural look.

Real Techniques - Deluxe Crease Brush part of the Starter Kit $17.99
This is like a little foundation brush. I like to use it for applying thicker cream conceal under the eye. You can also clean up any fall-out from shadow with this brush and a bit of concealer.

Bobbi Brown - Ultra Fine Eye Liner Brush $28.00
This is one of my favorite brushes for creating a gel liner wing. It also has a long handle which gives you good control.

I hope you liked this post! What is your favorite of brush or brush brand? Tell me in the comments
so I can look into them! Thanks for reading and if I am slow to my replies it is just because I'm moving and may not have Wifi yet.
