We have all used them.....those plastic eyeshadow applicators with the sponge tip. Thinking of using one to apply eye shadow makes me cringe. I'm not gonna slap your hand if you love them, but graduating to a great eyeshadow brush will Change Your World.. I'm not calling anyone out but (cough cough, mom.) :)
You don't have to spend a fortune for great brushes. ELF and has some great ones in their studio line. If you can catch the CYBER monday deal tomorrow ( December 2nd ) the whole site is 50% off with the coupon code CYBER50. That's an awesome deal, especially since they are already cheap. I'm planning on getting some myself. Why is it when you're Christmas shopping, it's hard to not buy things for yourself too? Haha.
I know most makeup artist are partial to MAC and Sigma brushes, which are awesome, but I personally think the affordable ones are just as good for the everyday woman and makeup artist too.
