After a week filled with London-fun in the sun, it was time to pack my bags and head back home to Norway for the summer. I have always hated packing because there is always so much stuff I want to bring, but so little space for it in my suitcase. Over the past couple of years makeup has become the biggest issue, as I have a few too many makeup bags filled with products. I managed to narrow it down to my must have pieces to fit in two large makeup bags, and did the same with my brushes. Even though I have a collection of brushes and like to try out new ones, I do have some Must Have Makeup Brushes which I could never do without. Since I skipped last week’s Beauty Product of the Week, I thought I would combine two weeks in one and give you a longer post on my all-time must have makeup brushes. These are the brushes I use daily and could not live without, that I truly recommend from the bottom of my heart.

Must Have Makeup Brushes
Beauty Blender

Ever since I first tried it last summer, the BeautyBlender has been my most used and loved beauty tool. I use this sponge to blend out my foundation, concealer, eyeshadow primer, cream contour and every other cream product I might use. Designed to give impeccable, streak-free application with minimum product waste, it leaves the most perfect and flawless finish every single time.

Morphe M439

With its chunky yet lightweight handle, the M439 Deluxe Buffer Brush magically buffs the product over the skin whilst simultaneously providing a natural finish. Synthetic bristles exquisitely apply the desired makeup to the complexion whilst remaining impeccably gentle on the skin. My favourite foundation brush, to use before blending out with a Beauty Blender.

Real Techniques Buffing Brush

My favourite powder brush. Ideal for full coverage application of powder and mineral foundation. But I also like to use this to blend out my contour, bronzer and blush. The perfect mid-sized brush for both larger and more detailed areas.

Real Techniques Contour Brush

To set my under eye concealer, I prefer to use a even smaller and more precise and dense brush. Even though this brush is meant for Contour and highlight on the cheekbones, I always reach for it for my under eye area, where it fits perfectly.

Too Faced Kabuki Brush

This portable and retractable Kabuki Brush has been my all-around on-the-go face brush for years. It is so simple to always keep in my bag, and works well with both powder and cream products I might need to touch up on throughout the day. Luxurious, hard-working bristles grab pigment  and blend expertly for flawless, streak-free color.

Morphe M438

The M438 Pointed Contour Brush is the perfect tool for detailing and contouring the face effortlessly, delivering flawless results. It is fluffy enough to blend out the product, but dense enough to apply it only to a detailed area. The size and shape fits perfectly on top of my cheekbones, which makes it my go-to brush for highlighting.

L.A.B.2 Pro Eyeshadow Brush *

This brush is the stiffest and flattest eyeshadow brush I own. This makes it perfect for one thing (and one thing only..), which is highlighting my brow bone. Again, the size and shape fits perfectly in my brow bone.

Morphe M441

If I had to use only one eyeshadow brush for the rest of my life, it would easily be the M441 Pro Firm Blending Crease Brush. It is the perfect brush for adding transition shades and blending out the crease. But it also works for the whole lid, and on lazy days it is the only brush I use on my eyes.

H&M Eyebrow Brush

My absolute favourite budget friendly brush. This double-sided Eyebrow Brush is so easy in use. I first brush through my brows with the spoolie and then quickly fill them in with product. Easy, effortlessly and good on-the-go.

Must Have Makeup Brushes

With these Must Have Makeup Brushes I always get the flawless result I want. They are all fairly budget friendly, but still have the quality of a high end brand. In addition to these brushes, I really like the rest of Real Techniques and L.A.B.’s collections, as well as brushes from The Body Shop and Sephora. No matter what brushes you love and use, the most important thing is to take good care of them. Always remember to clean your brushes regularly, and keep them safe when traveling.
