Makeup Brushes Tutorial

The chief disadvantage of these sets is that they do not contain as many pieces as the sets that are more expensive. Usually, a more expensive set will cost about $12 and have around 12 brushes. It would also come with a case. You don't get all of that with one of these packages. You have all of the essential brushes in the makeup tools set. If you are using it for yourself, it will be enough. For professional use, you will need a larger set.


Many of the people who rush out in the morning don’t have time to spend putting on their cosmetics with a wide variety of brushes. A few essential pieces will be ideal in this case, so why not get one of these sets, save yourself some money and have attractive brushes to carry around with you.

Usually, you will find the following pieces included in a makeup brush set for under $5:

  • 1 blush brush
  • 1 lip brush
  • 1 eye shadow brush
  • 1 eyebrow comb brush
  • 1 eyes shadow smudge brush

There is a seller on Amazon by the name of Crazy Cart, who has good deals on makeup brushes. You can easily get a set containing the brushes listed above for between $1 and $3.

The Ostart brush set is also available for less than $5. It contains 5 pieces and the makeup brushes come in an attractive leopard pattern. The colors are silver and black and silver and pink.

Both sets of brushes have plastic/metal frames. This is one of the things that helps to keep the price of these brushes lower than the usual. The brush bristles are not animal hair, they are synthetic. That means that they will not be as soft as animal hair brushes. Still, they are easy to use and attractively packaged. Ostart manufacturers a number of other beauty supplies, such as hair cutting shears and nail art equipment.

I used to use art brushes for makeup brushes without any problems at all, but my sister tried them and said they were too scratchy for her. These days, I just use aloe vera gel and a little eyeliner, so I don't have to worry about brushes! ;D Voted up and useful!
