My favorite Bobbi Brown brushes include the eyeshadow brush, the eye shader brush, the ultra-fine liner brush, and the face blender brush. The eyeshadow brush is soft and fluffy and perfect for picking up highly pigmented shadows like Bobbi's. The eye shader brush is a large flat topped brush that is perfect for brushing a base color all over my lid, which is the Bobbi Brown technique. The ultra-fine liner brush is beloved by many. It's great for drawing a smooth gel liner line. It's the last brush in the photo below. You can tell the wood is oxidized from old age. It also has doggie teeth marks, thanks to Baby Bird. The face blender brush is a multi-tasker. It was great when my brush collection was a smaller size. It has a fluffy and soft rounded head. I've used it for blush, highlighter, bronzer, and powder. It's good for diffuse application.
My other brushes include the foundation brush, the lip brush, the eyebrow brush, the cream eyeshadow brush, the concealer brush and the eyeliner (synthetic) brush. The one brush I don't like is the lip brush. The brush has a black cover that doubles as the end of the brush. That way, you can throw it your makeup bag and keep things safe and clean. At the same time you get a full length brush when necessary. The idea is nice, but the fit of the cover is loose on the brush, so I'm worried it's going to fall off at any moment. Most of the brushes have natural fibers. The only synthetic brushes are the eyeliner brush and the foundation brush. I love this collection and many of these brushes daily. Sadly, I won't be adding more Bobbi Brown brushes to my set since I'm trying to buy cruelty-free synthetics these days. However, you can bet that if there's a new synthetic BB brush, I'll be sure to scoop it up!
Thanks for taking a peek at my Bobbi Brown brush collection. They're a glimpse into my makeup history. Bobbi Brown was my first real makeup love. Before I discovered NARS, I was a Bobbi devotee. Bobbi's Makeup Manual was my only makeup study guide until I found blogs in the world wide web =). Do you build your brush collection around one brand as well? How did you get your start in makeup? I'm wondering if there are any beauty bookworms like me out there!
