#10. What's your favorite makeup brush?
Finally, a short and sweet answer, because hands down, my e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush is my absolute favorite.
I use this brush daily to apply and blend my liquid or cream foundation but it can also be used to apply powder, blush or bronzer, buff in mineral makeup, blend contours- so many uses! To top it all off, it's so inexpensive you can literally buy 10 for same price you'd pay for one MAC brush!
For those of you that have never tried e.l.f. brushes, be aware: they're not top quality. I've had to glue more than one ferrule back on, and on some brushes the shapes and bristles are inconsistent (I have two of the same e.l.f. Eye Shadow Brushes that are shaped so differently, they're basically different brushes!) So why in the world do I love my Studio Powder so much? Well, the bristles are soft and secure (I don't get strays sticking to my face, which is more than I can say about my MAC brushes!) and the shape- large, dense and flat-topped, is unique. And for $3, I don't really mind a little at-home reinforcement.
Speaking of cheap, e.l.f. is currently having a 50% off sale on their Studio line. There's a minimum purchase of $25 (before discount) but it's still a great chance to try the products if you haven't yet had a chance! Use the code STUDIO at checkout, offer ends Monday, August 29th, 2011.
