The Best Beginner Brushes on this Side of the Internet!

I’m not claiming that a good brush will make or break your entire makeup look, but it can certainly make a bomb face easier to accomplish! I speak from experience here: when you’re starting out with makeup take all the easy paths you can. You don’t have to buy the world’s most expensive brushes, but a quality brush can lower your risk of streaky foundation, under-blended eyeshadow, or super muddy bronzer.

My top pick to test the waters of the wonderful world of brushes are EcoTools brush sets! They’re generally less than $15 per set and are completely Liv approved! In fact, they were my first brush sets when I started getting serious about my makeup game. They’re super soft, super durable, shed-free, and fairly densely packed. With some affordable brands, individual brushes may vary in their quality, but every EcoTools brush I own is top notch.

I’m primarily a fan of their kits, because I really can’t subscribe to spending more than $5 on an individual makeup brush (not with this paycheck!). They carry sets for an everyday look, for the face, for the eyes, travel kits, and beginners’ kits. Plus, every kit I own came in it’s own travel bag!

The main downside I can think of is that you will probably end up with a brush that you have no use for! Each of my sets came with a concealer brush and while I technically can use them, I don’t actually have a use for them in my makeup routine. I also got a lip brush in one but I always apply my lipstick directly from the tube, so I just use it as a brush for my cream eyeliner (fierce wings ahead)! These are pretty minor flaws, though!

  1. Love this post! Eco tools brushes look great, I’ve wanted to try them for a while now. My first brush was the realtechniques expert face brush, and I love it! Although, now I’m starting to move towards the beauty blender side…

  2. I just got the Real Techniques sponge, and it is amazing! I’ve even tried my friend’s branded beauty blender and I like this one more. I also recommend the Up and Up powder brush from Target! It’s unbelievably soft and great at patting powder all over the face. πŸ™‚
