Today I’m sharing with you the Best Budget-Friendly Eyeshadow Brushes,which is Part 2 of my makeup brush series. In case you missed it, I covered the Best Budget-Friendly Face Brushes last week.
When it comes to eyeshadow brushes, I often get asked the question “Which ones do I really need?” Well the answer to that really depends on what type of makeup looks you regularly create.
If you are more of a sweep on one color all over the eyes gal, then you won’t necessarily need the same tools as someone who blends 5 colors on the lid.
Of course you can also be someone who does a little bit of both and that’s why this list is so great, because these brushes are amazing quality, yet in purchasing them they won’t break the bank.
Angled Eyeliner Brush- $2.99 (Avon)
Personally, I think everyone should have an angled eyeliner brush in their collection. Simply put, it can be tricky to apply liquid eyeliners and gel eyeliner to the eyes, and it takes practice.
But if you’ve ever used an angled eyeliner brush in applying your eyeliner, then you’ll know how incredibly easy and precise it is in applying everyday liner looks or more dramatic winged and cat eye looks.
I highly recommend that anyone who loves to wear eyeliner purchase an angled eyeliner brush, as the application is so much easier and less time consuming. This specific one by Avon is great, and the stiff brush provides very precise results.
I use my angled eyeliner brush with black or brown eyeshadow, and it is so easy and fail-proof in applying eyeliner. You simply dip the brush in the product and starting at the inside corner of your eye, carefully drag the brush along the upper or lower lash line.
e.l.f. Eyeshadow “C” Brush- $3 (e.l.f.)
I love this brush so much that I re-order a new one almost every time I place an order with e.l.f. (which if I’m being honest is a lot). It’s just a great, highly versatile eyeshadow brush to have in your collection.
The brush is perfect for an easy sweep of product all-over the lid, can be used for blending out product in the crease, and can even be used in applying further definition on the outer corner of the lid.
Wet n’ Wild Eyeshadow Brush $0.99 (Wet n’ Wild)
I picked this brush up on the whim one day when Walgreens was having a 50% off sale on all Wet n’ Wild products (making it only 49 cents!) I must say that was the best decision I made, as this eyeshadow brush is awesome!
The short bristles on this brush are so soft and it is great in applying pigmented shadows to the eyelid. This brush is highly versatile in that it can be used in creating heavier smokey eye looks, or can be used for blending in the crease.
You can find this brush at any drugstore and I’m pretty sure both Wal-mart and Target sell this as well.
e.l.f. Contour Brush- $3 (e.l.f.)
Unlike the “C” Brush mentioned above which is more for blending, the contour brush has dome shaped bristles which is amazing in picking up a lot of color for bold and smokey eyeshadow looks.
I’m a huge fan of this brush due to the fact that it can create such defined looks and is able to really apply concentrated colors wherever you want on the lid.
For all you ladies out there who like to create dramatic eyeshadow looks (like myself), this brush is a definite must-have.
Avon Rounded Shadow Brush- $4.99 (Avon)
I received this brush a few years back as a gift, and it has been one of my absolute favorite brushes in creating smokey eyeshadow looks.
If you like creating definition on the outer corner of your eyes, this brush is perfect. I also really like the way the handle on this brush is shaped, as it is very easy to hold onto.
Unfortunately, when I checked the website they no longer sell this product, but I found a similar one that e.l.f. sells here.
A rounded shadow brush is a great tool to have in your collection, and it really helps you control where the product is applied on the lid.
So there you have it- The Best Budget-Friendly Eyeshadow Brushes that will help you create countless, gorgeous makeup looks. I hope you enjoyed today’s post and be sure and let me know in the comments if you have found other amazing eyeshadow brushes out there!
