You could buy other brushes... but then you would have to use them! The photos may not match up exactly to the product tag, because they just have so many it’s hard to tell, but look at the shape of the brushes as that’s what I wanted you to see. These are a trio of my favorite brushes from it Cosmetics. I use the angled it Cosmetics - Airbrush Full Coverage Complexion Brush #77
My Holy Grail Makeup Tools✨
So I am 100% one of those girls who used to apply all of my makeup with my hands/fingers. Even to this day there’s certain products that I’d just rather use my fingers and prefer the finish that gives. However, I (finally) started adding to my collection of makeup tools in recent years and these 3 specifically are ones that have reached holy grail status for me. • HALEYS - RE:MIX Complexion Sponge - I’m a big fan of beauty sponges in general and have used a few different brands over the years. In my opinion, this beauty sponge is comparable to the Beauty Blender and is sold for a fraction of the cost (spoiler - I actually prefer this one!). I love using a damp beauty sponge for concealer and cream products as well as to “bake” my makeup. A little trick I do with my damp beauty sponge as well is to go over my entire face with it after all of my makeup is on and my setting spray has been applied to blend everything in and pick up and excess product - it makes the finish of your makeup look seamless and flawless! •REAL TECHNIQUES - Real Techniques Blush Brush - a friend of mine recommended this brush and said it was amazing for blush and bronzer and she was not wrong! It’s so fluffy and soft but not super dense so it allows you to build up the product for a natural looking finish. This brush is affordable and you can find Real Techniques brushes at lots of drugstores and department stores. • tarte - Setting Superpower Powder Brush - this brush is huge and super dense which may be intimidating for some people but I loved it from the first time I tried it! The fact that it’s big works perfectly to apply loose or pressed powder with a flawless finish. It’s great because it doesn’t just absorb all of the product into the brush because it is so dense so you don’t use as much powder. I love this one for setting my face or even sometimes for applying powder foundation. It was in a set that Tarte had a few years ago at Sephora that is no longer available so I’m not sure if you can still purchase the brush anywhere, but in general the size and density of this brush is something I’d look for again in a powder brush. Obviously I have other makeup and beauty tools that I love and use often but these 3 are ones that I reach for every day. Thanks for reading! #CheriePartner
HALEYS-RE:MIX Complexion Sponge
My cannot live without make up tools 💛
Before I start, yes I 100% keep my brushes in a pikachu cup. If you’re a Pokémon nerd as well sound off in the comments and tell me your favorite Pokémon 🖤 I wanted to show you guys the make up brushes I used on the daily. Yes, they are dirty because I do use them daily. On days where I have to get up at 4:30 am for work these are the brushes I grab for my bare minimum make up. First, I use the REAL TECHNIQUES - Miracle Finish Sponge for my foundation and concealer. This is waaayyy better than any beauty blender. It’s only $5.99, extremely soft, blends in my make up beautifully, and Ulta has them on sale all the time. Next, I use a fluffy crease brush to apply my under eye powder. I know this sounds weird but I picked up this has for TikTok and it’s changed my game. I pick up a little bit of my powder on a little fluffy brush and brush the powder on from the outer corner to the inner corner to set my concealer. It’s helped a lot with minimizing creases. Mine is from the purple Morphe holiday set last year. I love Morphe brushes and I do think they work very well for the price. Then, I take an even fluffier crease brush and I take my bronzer and fluff a little bit of that into the crease. This brush is a SL Miss Glam brush I got years ago in an Ipsy bag. A fluffy brush really helps diffuse the product naturally into the crease and gives you a little bit of definition. Then, I take my LUXIE - 516 Duo Fibre Powder Brush Rose Gold for my bronzer. I also got this in an old Ipsy bag years ago. The way the bristles are fluffed out gives a really natural, diffused bronzer look. I’ve been highly impressed with Luxie brushes over the years. I’ve had this for probably over 5 years and it’s never shed or lost shape when I washed it. It’s probably one of the best quality brushes I own. Then, I set my face with powder using the it Cosmetics - Your Contour Must-Haves Brush Set . Just like Luxie, IT Cosmetics has amazing quality brushes. The softness of them cannot be surpassed. I like the flat edge of this brush as it makes it very easy to press powder into the skin to set my face. Then, if I’m feeling blush that day I use my #Glamour Dolls - Angle Blush Brush[products]#[FiveStars] . Again, this came from an Ipsy bag years ago and it’s held up so well! It’s very soft and the angle of the brush makes it perfect for diffusing blush on the cheeks. I have A LOT more brushes than this but on those 4:30 am days these are the ones I grab for. Even on the normal shift days I grab for these. I highly recommend any of them for daily make up use. #CheriePartner
LUXIE-516 Duo Fibre Powder Brush Rose Gold
Favourite Brushes- Real Techniques Blush Brush
I’ve raved about this brush so much, my friend @beautyblogbystef influenced me to pick it up about a month ago! It’s sooo soft and fluffy, I’ve been using it to apply my bronzer and love that it picks up a good amount of product but doesn’t pack it onto my skin. It does such a good job and is overall such a high quality brush but affordable - I’d definitely recommend picking it up!
REAL TECHNIQUES- Blush Brush, Cheek, 1 Brush
Do You Need a Setting Powder Brush? YES!
It is summer where I am at and ensuring the day make-up stays on all day can be a feat. Thanks to setting powder, my make-up can stay intact all day, combating against humidity and natural oils. The travel-friendly e.l.f. Retractable Kabuki Brush is a great brush that I wil recommend to anyone who is looking to use as a setting powder brush. The price is great – at USD6! I also like that the brand is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. The soft nylon bristles make it easy to apply and blend product flawlessly for coverage, especially with its rounded shape. While I don’t fancy the feel of the plastic retractable head and handle, the retractable function makes it easy for a more controlled use and mess-free storage, especially in our purses when we bring it out. Some brushes can pick up too much powder in one go, which can be wasteful and annoying. This kabuki brush picks up just the right amount of powder. With a gentle tap, it dusts away excess powder and leave an appropriate amount for dusting all over the face. I also multi-use this brush for my blush and bronzer. For the low price of USD6, this kabuki brush is a wonderful entry-level brush to have, especially in small purses for quick touch-ups outside.
Similar to the La Mer powder brush! But Only $60😱
SEPHORA COLLECTION - PRO Featherweight Powder Brush #91 I got this powder brush when Sephora was on sale. (touch it several times when I pass by Sephora, it’s so fluffy! Like a bunny tail) It’s good, but it reminds me that you don’t need such an expensive brush to apply loose powder, it may make no difference. I mean, if you are using a high end loose powder, it should work good with any brush, and if you are using a drugstore loose powder, You can buy any cost-effective brush. I have oily skin which means that I must use a large powder for my daily makeup. And I love how huge and fluffy this brush is! It’s so incredibly soft, legitimately feels like clouds brushing on my skin. (although its material is Synthetic Fibre) And it’s easy to take the powder. It's definitely worth buying. It’s excellent for taking powder or loose powder. If you're in the market for a powder brush look no further. This brush is fluffy on skin so well made and super soft to the touch. It's very large which makes it unique to my collection and perfect for quick powder application. I wouldn't recommend this for blush or bronzer as it's too large for targeted placement - the # 90 brush is a smaller version of this and would be much more practical for bronzer or blush. I purchased this brush over 2 months ago and after many uses and washes it's still in perfect condition. It's very similar to the La Mer powder brush but for a fraction of the price. Usage * Load the brush with powder then apply to your T-zone in wide circular motions. * Sweep outwards from the center of the face down to the neck. In addition, the brush comes with a sweeping cover (a container) to prevent it from being covered by dust. I must say the bush has a really long handle and it doesn’t fit in my brush holder. However, I love the long handle which is making it easy to hold and use. And very fluffy and soft on my skin, it doesn't hurt your face at all! You only need hold just the right amount of products. I love the long handle which is making it easy to hold and use. Even if you don’t buy it, pls just go to Sephora to touch it! Tender and soft as feather. And the long handle is convenient for use. Hope Sephora isn't discontinuing it because it's an amazing brush. I would recommend it to all.

Haven’t bought a BB in 3 Years!| #CheriePartner
Nowadays you can’t do your makeup without using a sponge. A lot of people mainly use sponges to do the first 3 steps to their face routine. For me, I like to alternate between sponges & brushes. I’ve tried the beloved beautyblender - Classic Makeup Sponge Pinkand it’s nice, she cool, BUT I literally DON’T feel like spending $20 every 6 months for a new sponge so after buying my last Beauty Blender in 2017 I haven’t bought another one since. Since 2017 i’ve been trying literally every OTHER beauty sponge I could find from every other brand. I even tried a Dior beauty sponge thinking higher end but sponge but 🥴. That sponge is $24 retail but I worked at the Saks at the time so employee discount made it $17 🎊. After time i tried more lower end brands. Below are my Top 5 AFFORODBLE beauty sponges! 1. MORPHE - Highlight + Contour Beauty Sponge I use this SOLEY FOR BAKING. It gets under the eyes perfectly, cleans up a contour nicely & it very soft. $8.00 2.#sonia kashuk - Marble Makeup Blender Sponge love how soft and flat the bottom of this is. Honestly one of the prettiest sponges I have. Currently I have 3 of these sponges & they all have different color marbles on them. I like to use to pounce all over my face after i’m done setting with powder, bronzing, and setting the face. $5.00 3. e.l.f. - Camo Concealer Sponge THIS SPONGE IS AMAZING. I need to buy a backup of it because I see everyone knows what’s good. This sponge for blending out CONCEALER is A1. I also do use the corresponding e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer so these two are like Jay-z & Beyoncé. 4.MORPHE - Flawless Beauty Sponge This is another soft sponge. It’s also great for blending in all all over powder & bronzer into the face. it’s a soft and squishy sponge. $8.00 * I did try the JUNO & Co. - Microfiber Velvet Spongesponges, i bought them in two different styles. TO ME they are a little hard. people rave about them but idk maybe I need to use them more 🤷🏾♀️
