Favourite Cheek Brushes

A picture of my favourite cheek brushes

I have been meaning to share my favourite brushes with you all for so, so long now. I own a ridiculous amount of brushes; I hold my hands up and admit I am a sucker for a good makeup brush. But in my quests to find the perfect brushes, I've also run across some really bad ones. Thankfully now my collection consists of some pretty darn good brushes, from a variety of brands, and I have firm favourites that I reach for everyday. Over a few posts I am going to share my favourite brushes for face, eyes, cheeks and more. Today I am discussing cheek brushes. Quite a varied selection, no two brushes are from the same brand. 

When it comes to cream blushes or cream contour products, I turn to my Real Techniques Contour Brush. I have found this to be the best brush for cream products above all my other brushes, even the Real Techniques Stippling Brush which I bought to use with cream blushes. I particularly love the Real Techniques Contour Brush for applying my Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel and for applying any cream blushes. The only downside to this brush is that it is part of the Core Collection and cannot be bought separately. This means that each time I wash my brushes, I have to keep this brush either for contour or blush depending on which product I use it for first, as I don't really want another Core Collection, one is definitely enough. (Boots, Real Techniques Core Collection, £21.99)

I mentioned the Bobbi Brown Bronzer Brush in my June Top 5 and it really has become my absolute favourite bronzer brush. If it's a powder bronzer, there is no other brush I will reach for. It's dense, but the bristles are allowed enough movement to apply both subtly for a natural glow or more definition for a contour look. This brush is unbelievable and so far, the best brush for any makeup product that I have ever used. I adore it and I really want to branch out to more brushes from Bobbi Brown. If the rest are anything like this, then they will be incredible! (Bobbi Brown, £38) For powder blusher I reach for two brushes, the Sigma F40 Large Angled Contour brush and the EcoTolls Blush Brush. The EcoTools Blush Brush is the perfect brush for picking up the right amount of product for a pop of colour on your cheeks. I love this brush so much I have bought it for a few friends too and I am always recommending it as the best blush brush around. (Boots, £7.99) I use the Sigma F40 Large Angled Contour Brush for applying my more natural toned blushes, such as the Bobbi Brown Powder Blush in Almond. It has that perfect shape for a contoured effect but the bristles aren't as dense as my contouring brushes so works perfectly to add that natural contour shading in. I really adore Sigma brushes, but this is by far one of my favourite. (Amazon, £16.90)

Out of all the cheek brushes I own, these four are my absolute favourites. I would recommend any of these brushes to anyone! I would also love to hear some of your cheek brush recommendations, as I am addicted to makeup brushes like I am lipsticks; I am always on the lookout for the next best brush!
