Friday Favourites - Powder Brushes!

Hello m'lovelies!
 
So it's Fridaaayy and I'm back with another Friday Favourites post for you!
This Friday Favourites is going to be for powder brushes and I will apologise in advance for the extremely bad lighting in the pictures!

So I have 5 brushes to inclue in this post and first up is....
 
This is the e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush. This brush is great for buffing in powder and would be great for powder foundation! The bristles are very densely packed but is still great for powder application.
The best way to use this brush would be to dab the powder and then around the hair-line and the edge of the face it is best to blend it out so it doesn't look cakey.
Nevertheless, this is a great brush!
*This retails at £3.75*
 
 Next up is....
 
 This is the e.l.f. Studio Complexion Brush. This is such a lovely brush to use to apply your powder!
The bristles are very densely packed so it glides on your face and doesn't make your powder look cakey.
It is a great brush and is flat inside of circular so you can apply powder to the harder places on your face more easily!
*This retails at £3.75*
 
 
 This is the last e.l.f. brush and it is the e.l.f. Studio Kabuki Face Brush. This is also a brush with densely packed bristles but not as much as the powder brush!
This is a great brush and it would also be good at buffing in powder foundation. You only need a light hand with this brush to apply your powder but it doesn't look cakey.
*This retails at £6.00*
 
 Next up is...
 
 This is the Blank Canvas Cosmetics (BCC) F20 HD Flat Top Kabuki/Buffer Brush.
I included this in my Friday Favourites based on foundation brushes but this works just aswell for powder as it does for foundation application!
I recommend that you apply your powder with this brush with the same technique as I suggested for the e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush:)
This is a great brush and I recommend it for anyone!
 
Lastly is...
 
This is the Blank Canvas Cosmetics (BCC) F16 Large Tapered Contour/Powder Brush.
This is the brush I have been using the most recently to apply my powder and it is definitely my favourite powder brush!
The bristles are very soft and the brush glides over the skin and sets my makeup without looking cakey at all:)
As this is tapered, you can set your under-eye concealer and makeup around your nose and other harder areas on your face. This makes your powder look really nice after it has been applied and blended around the hair-line.
I recommend this very much to everyone and I will definitely continue using this!
 
I'm sorry this was a short Friday Favourites post and I apologise for the quality of some of these images as I took them in the evening so the lighting wasn't very good!
However, I hope you liked this and I hope I helped you choose what brush for you to purchase to apply your powder with:)
 
Thanks for reading!
What's your favourite powder brush? Have you tried any of these brushes?
