Best Inexpensive Makeup Brushes & How to Apply Long Lasting Makeup Using Brushes

Best Inexpensive Makeup Brushes & How to Apply Long Lasting Makeup Using Brushes

Ever wonder why makeup artists carry an arsenal of cosmetic brushes?  They allow for  professional, precise makeup application – so everyone can achieve that movie star glow. A good set of brushes is the next best thing to air-brushed perfection.


If you’re in search of some quality, inexpensive makeup brushes to add to your collection, give these a try: Bubinga Sophie Cosmetics Brushes & Beau-Make Brushes.


I purchased these from Ebay last week, at a price range of only $3 – $6. So far, am very impressed with the results & my foundation looks better than ever. These came from US Ebay Seller “abbamart” and arrived just a few days after I ordered them.


Brush # 1:  Beau Make Concealer Brush for Hiding Blemishes $3

Use this brush before using foundation. Lightly sweep the brush across a cream concealer to pick up the product. Then, blend product over any blemishes (freckles, acne, scars, dark circles etc) using downward motions. This brush can also be used with Mineral Concealer. Dab the tip of the brush into the minerals and tap to remove excess. Pat over blemishes, and blend outward to create a natural, flawless finish.

Brush # 2: Beau Make Stippling Brush for Foundation $6

Place a nickel sized amount of liquid foundation into palm of hand or onto makeup palette. Dab the tip of the Stippling Brush into the foundation and begin blotting onto face, one section at a time. Blend downwards and toward hair line in semi-circular motions to achieve a flawless look with a decent amount of coverage. Blend any corners around nose, mouth and eye brows using a slightly damp cosmetic sponge or your finger tips.

Brush # 3: Bubinga Sophie Cosmetics Angled Powder Brush for

Contouring Blush and/or Bronzer $6

Sweep this angled brush across your blush or bronzer compact.  To apply blush, sweep color from 1.5 inches above corner of lip toward hair line (with the pointed side of the brush facing your lips). For a contoured look, sweep a slightly darker shade of blush directly underneath each cheekbone and blend. To apply bronzer, sweep the brush over bronzer palette and lightly dust where the sun would naturally hit (top of forehead, center of nose & chin). To slenderize a wide or round face, dust the bronzer along bottoms of cheeks just above jaw line, up to mid-ear height. Blend so that no line is visible.

Brush # 4: Bubinga Sophie Cosmetics Fluffy Powder Brush for

Loose Powder Primer and/or Loose Setting Powder  $6

To apply Powder Primer before foundation, dip the top of the Powder Brush into the loose powder. Sweep all over face, including eye lids, paying extra attention to T-Zone. Apply this before any other makeup, including concealer. This method helps all of your makeup to stay in place and is especially suited toward oily skin types.  To apply Setting Powder, dip the top of the Powder Brush into the loose powder and sweep over foundation after foundation/blush/bronzer have been applied. This will give you a flawless, airy & long lasting finish.



Product Suggestions



  • No brush hair fall-out to ruin your look

  • Soft, flexible brush hairs make product blending easy

  • Gentle brushes that do not irritate or feel harsh against skin

  • Provide even, air-brushed application for a long lasting finish

  • No product fall-out; product bonds to brush until applied to the skin

  • Shipping was cheap, I paid $4 total & the brushes arrived within 4 days



None yet! At first I thought the Stippling Brush was going to be too soft for effective foundation application, but it worked incredibly well. However, if you use a thicker variety of foundation, I would recommend dampening the brush first with either water or a Mist & Fix Set Spray (from ELF for $3 or MAC for $10).


Final Thoughts:

I would highly recommend these brushes to anyone from beginner to professional. Many people avoid using makeup brushes because many of them are so pricey. These offer an inexpensive solution that any budget can handle.
