Top 5 Make-Up Brushes | Cruelty Free

I must admit, I'm a bit of a bore when it comes to beauty - I don't often change things up nor do I collect all the latest palettes - for me, it's a bit of a waste of £. Saying that, I'm a huge brush fan and finding a tool that blends everything to perfection in the quickest time possible is a huge goal of mine. Gets the heart going. Despite my humble yet growing collection, I thought I'd share my 5 favourite cruelty free brushes you just need in your life (and no, they're not freshly washed).

When it comes to the face, the two magic workers you need include the cult favourite: Real Techniques Buffing Brush and Zoeva 103 Defined Buffer Brush. Both make your base that little bit easier to apply with no faff and everything blended equally. RT's version is perfect for those days you have no time or just want something super simple. Whereas, Zoeva's angled brush features super dense bristles, which means more contact with your face and may feel like a little more work, but that beauty reaches the contours of your face like nothing else. Under eyes, temples, forehead is no problem, so I feel it gives a slightly more flawless finish. Really feels a bit luxurious. Both wash fabulously too. 

If you're in the market for a blending brush, the Morphe Blending Fluff Brush needs to be on your radar. Like it's title, it is perfectly soft and fluffy, and a great size so you can get that full blended effect. For the price, the quality is ridiculously good, plus it has an attractive gun metal handle, making it easier to find in its storage. In contrast is the RT Deluxe Crease Brush - a super dense rounded number, which I predominantly use for concealer. It's one I use everyday without fail.

Last but not least, another Zoeva feature: 235 Contour Shader Brush. Pretty versatile and a really good small size - ideal for getting precision crease shading and blending. I also find it great for contouring my nose with the angle and narrow width. Duo fibre brushes are the ones to opt for if you're looking for ultimate softness. I've had a couple non-duo versions, which have that slightly irritating scratch feeling. Not the greatest design when applying close to the eye.

Do you have any of these in your collection? Let me know your favourites too.
