The Best Makeup Brushes On A Budget

Think of putting on your makeup like you’re painting a house: the tools you use for the application can make or break your end results. A great brush can elevate the performance of a mediocre product; and conversely, a bad-quality brush can make working with a premium product difficult and frustrating. When I realized the huge role that brushes play in a makeup routine, I bought a lot of them. I wanted to try everything,…
