Any makeup enthusiast knows a quality set of makeup brushes is the key to creating a flawless, professional look and we couldn’t agree more! Unfortunately, most high quality brushes come with an equally high price tag. But at e.l.f. Cosmetics, we don’t think you should have to pay a small fortune to get a quality set of brushes that will last. Take a look at a few of our luxurious and affordable makeup tools that will help you #playbeautifully!

Eyes

Blending/Defining Brush – We’ve all tried (and often failed!) to make do smudging eyeshadow into a perfect blend using our fingers. But, if you’re working with more than one to two colors, you definitely need an eye brush that blends and defines. This brush is perfect for creating a smokey eye thanks to its soft, bendable fibers cut with an angled edge. The angled edge even allows you to easily create that seamless blend of colors in the crease of your eyes.

Straight-Edged Eyeliner Brush –There are so many options for applying eye liner, but picking the right brush doesn’t have to be overwhelming. To stream on a precise line of liquid, gel, or powder products, all you need is our eyeliner brush with dense bristles and a crisp edge. We even provide flat-tipped and angled brush options, depending on what’s more comfortable for you.

Lips

Lip Brush – Shaping the perfect pout takes time, practice, and control. Instead of smearing lipstick, tints, or stains directly onto your lips and hoping for the best, use a brush to control the amount of pigment you apply. This kind of brush needs to be fine tipped and absorbent with bendable, yet firm hairs. Luckily, our lip brush totally fits the bill. Any color will glide on smoothly, allowing you to fill in any fine lines and those tricky areas. Trust us, it will make your life way easier and your lips simply irresistible!

Our Kabuki brush is just what you need for applying setting powder, bronzer, blush, and even foundation.
