Right off the bat I’ll tell you now, get this brush set before it’s gone! At $39.99 ($45+ in Hawaii), this is the best limited release I have ever purchased from the Sonia Kashuk line . A Target exclusive, I was more than ecstatic to see this set, the one and only up for display on that fateful Saturday morn’. Serendipity, who knows.

3) Duo-fiber buffing brush (for foundation)

4) Synthetic angled multipurpose brush (best for foundation)

5) Contour brush

6) Foundation brush

7) Concealer brush

8) Blending brush

9) Crease brush (my #1 favorite)

10) Small eyeshadow brush

11) Fluffy eyeshadow brush

12) Precision smudge brush

How can you not love the burgundy handle and purple bristles? all of them are surprisingly soft and the overall quality are indeed comparable to high-end labels! No exaggeration…

I’ve been using these brushes for over two weeks now so I thought of showing you how I use them in my day-to-day makeup application. Get ready with me in ten minutes, promise!

1) For BB cream and/or foundation, I prefer using the synthetic angled multipurpose brush. It allows me to seamlessly apply and blend the foundation and since it’s a bit angled, it’s easy to get around the corners of my nose and under the eyes.

2) To mask the dreaded dark circles, I used the small concealer brush for application.

3) After that, I used a flat foundation brush to blend as it covers a much wider area.

4) While letting the foundation/concealer to meld into the skin, I tackled my poor eyebrows with the angled liner brush.

5) Let’s continue with the eye makeup. Today I decided to start with my crease. This Sonia Kashuk crease brush is my favorite eye brush to-date. It’s great for us ladies with monolids. The size is small yet dense enough to locate and define the “missing” crease.

6) And then I used the flat eyeshadow brush to pack on eyeshadow on the lids.

7) Another favorite from the set, I used the fluffy blending brush to blend and buff, what else.

8) To highlight my brow bone/ arch, I used the thicker eyeshadow brush.

9) I brushed my eyebrows using a spoolie.

10) Struggling or afraid to poke your eyeballs? I shared some tips on tightlining here.

11) With the small smudge brush, I applied dark eyeshadow on my lower lash line.

12) Then I lined my water line with ultra-black eyeliner.

13) Then I set the concealer and BB cream with finely-milled powder using powder brush.

14) Lashes are boring without curls…

15) And a coat or two of black mascara.

16) Then I applied bronzer to warm my ever so dull face.

17, 18, 19) I used the large powder brush to apply bronzer on the side of my face and under the jaw.

20) What is makeup sans lipstick. ‘Nuff said.

Voila!
