Aren’t these just exquisite? So classy and sophisticated. I have been looking for the perfect brushes for a very long time, and I mean a veryyyyyyy long time…and that must have been harder than finding a pin in a haystack. It was exhausting to say the least. Sometimes I wonder why I didn’t go to MAC earlier (always read positive reviews), my life would have been a lot easier and to be honest I would have saved some money. Now I know that MAC brushes are not cheap by any means, but if I were to add up the money that I spent on other brand’s brushes…it would equal more than what I have paid for my high quality MAC brushes. I have picked out the brushes that I use on a daily basis that I really could not live without! This is the perfect set to have whether you are just starting out or use make up on a daily basis.

FACE BRUSHES:

MAC 138 Tapered Face Brush

This is the perfect brush for setting powder underneath the eyes and all over the face. It is dome shaped so it gets really close to the eye and it’s fluffy enough for all over the face. It can also be used to blend out contouring, blush and/or highlight that is too strong.

MAC 129 Powder/Blush Brush

Perfection when it comes to bronzer and blush application.  Use it to bronze with this all over the face and then contour with a different, more precise brush. It doesn’t hold on to makeup so you can go ahead and use the same brush to apply blush right after. Two birds with one stone! WOO!

 

EYE BRUSHES:

MAC 224 Tapered Blending Brush

Best blending brush that was sent down from Heaven! It is so fluffy and round and somehow still perfectly fits into the crease. It doesn’t hold on to pigment so you can be as sloppy as you want with the transition colors. It blends everything out so impeccably. Also, can be used as a highlighting brush!

MAC 217 Blending Brush

A smaller and more precise blending brush. This is more of a flat brush that fits right into the crease. Very easy to apply a good amount of pigment and keep it in the crease, without going up too far and making your makeup look crazy.

MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush

IMG_3202

A flat brush used to apply eye shadow all over the lid. It picks up a lot of pigment which is great!! Its also very flat and densely packed so its easy to make sharp lines with.

MAC 275 Medium Angled Shading Brush

If you love creating an outer V, but have trouble doing it with other brushes, this will be your new best friend! This has a slanted shape which makes working  eye shadow into the outer edge of your eye a piece of cake! Also the perfect brush for highlighting under the brow and in the inner corner.

MAC 210 Precise Eyeliner Brush

IMG_3204

This is probably my favorite brush in the history of man kind. It is the best eye liner brush!!! I love how tiny it is because it helps with precision. I was never able to get a hang of the angled brushed, could never get a sharp point but those days are over!!! Use this with some gel liner and you are going to have the fiercest cat eyes ever!

Overall, MAC brushes get a 10/10 rating from me. They are hand made with the highest quality of hairs, which makes them extremely soft and long lasting. It is absolutely worth the price for something that will last you about ten years (if you take care of them properly). I wouldn’t trade these babies for anything!

 

I am always willing to try other brushes so if you have any suggestions, leave them down below and as always, please subscribe!

XOXO, Ruta.

Hi everyone! My name is Ruta! I'm guessing you are wondering where my name comes from, right? It's pretty odd I know! I am originally from Lithuania but have been in the USA for about 12 years. I currently reside in Florida, the sunshine state. I am in my early twenties and just graduated from a university with a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing and Advertising. Ever since I was a little girl I have been very interested in fashion, beauty, and makeup. As I grew older, I also became intrigued by traveling and cooking. This is what this blog is all about. I want to share my trial and errors and hopefully help others by learning new things, or maybe just encouraging to try out things you normally wouldn't. I hope you enjoy this blog, because I sure enjoy crafting every single blog article. To keep up to date with the latest posts, please subscribe. XOXO Ruta.

  1. I love the MAC brushes! I agree a little on the pricier side, but beautiful and super soft. I actually tend to purchase their sets that come around during certain seasons/holidays! They are a little bit cheaper and come with 4 brushes and a cute carrying travel case! Your page is beautiful! xoxo – Kat

    1. Awh thank you! I appreciate it! Be aware that the sets are manufactured in a factory vs being hand made. Its why they are a tad bit cheaper but the quality of the materials is still the same! Totally worth it.
