Affordable must have makeup brushes!

Hey guys,

I washed most of my brushes today as I had to pack them along to the new city I am moving to. While packing them I thought that I would do a post on the affordable must have brushes. So this post is going to be more picture heavy. Most of the brushes are from E.L.F which is available in India but at a higher cost. So I would strongly recommend that you definitely get these brushes from Usa if you’re going there or if someone you know is. Although all the E.L.F brushes are not that soft but many of them are. So here goes the post, if you guys have any queries feel free to ask 🙂
Also for the next few days my blog may be a little ignored till the time I dont get a fast internet connection, but I hope all of you stick with me! 🙂



The two powder brushes from E.L.F. Both are incredibly soft and apply powder very well. The black flat top brush can be also used to buff in the foundation


The left is a chinese brush I got from a random store but it is really very soft and good for powder and blush.
The right one is the ecotools foundation brush that I bought from It really applies foundation well and is super soft.


All the eye brushes clubbed together


The vega eye shadow brush, alittle stiff but picks up the colour well. Not scratchy at all,  is very soft.
The faces eye shadow brush is the best fluffy medium size affordable brush available in the market.


Both the flat brushes are really stiff and can be used to apply eyeliner and fill in the brows.


The super soft contour brush, I use it to apply colour in one go, set concealer with powder and blending out as well as apply colour in the crease.


A closer look.


This one reminds me of some Mac thin brush.
I hope all of you liked this post. Please share your affordable brushes with me too 🙂
