eBay Steals: 5 Makeup Brushes for less than £2

5 eBay Makeup Brushes
As a student, I'm all for a bargain, especially where makeup is concerned! This brush set from eBay is a steal! These are multi-purpose brushes but I like to primarily use them to apply eyeshadow. I've been wanting some more eyeshadow brushes for a long time now, as I only have a couple and often find myself using dirty brushes on a new eye makeup look, which isn't a great idea.
 I was really impressed with how quickly I received this brushes! I ordered them a few weeks ago and the estimated delivery was 30th March-7th April as they came from China, but to my delight they arrived a week early on the 22nd March! Also, the postage and packaging was completely free as well. I thought these would be perfect just to order and check out as I desperately needed some extra eye-brushes. I had the attitude of 'well if they are rubbish, it was only a couple of quid that I'd spent'.

£1.51 for 5 brushes... It was a no brainer, I had to try them.
Makeup Brushes
There are various different colours to choose from. I chose them in black and silver. They are amazing quality for the price. There may be the odd, random loose hair that pops up, but they can be easily plucked out or snipped off. 

1) Light Blending Brush

Blending brush
I like to keep this brush free from any colour and use it primarily as a blending brush to finish off my eyeshadow.

2) Flat Top/Stippling Brush

Eyeshadow brush
 I like to use this brush to buff eye shadow all over my lid, as it is a light brush. Alternatively, this use brush could be used as a spare concealer brush to conceal over any blemishes, so it's perfect as a backup for me, if my others are dirty!

3) Tapered Angled Brush

Eyeshadow brush
This brush is perfect for shading and applying eyeshadow to the 'outer v'.

4) Pointed Dome Brush

Eyeshadow brush
This is my favourite of all the 5 brushes. It is a dense and tapered brush so it is ideal for adding eyeshadow to the outer third of the eye, but I personally love it for applying highlighter to my brow bone and to the inner corner of my eye.

5) Angled Blending Brush

Eyeshadow brush
 This is a very soft brush so it is perfect to blend out my eyeshadow to finish off a look.
Overall, I'm really impressed with these brushes and I would highly recommend you picking them up!

The Eyebrow Product You NEED

MAC Fluidline Brow Gelcreme and MAC 266 brush
In all honesty, I don't really wear that much makeup on a day-to-day basis. I usually will just coat my lashes with a flick of mascara, cover my under-eye circles with concealer and head out of the door! I am fortunate enough to have very full and dark eyebrows so when if I'm getting ready quickly, I will most likely skip brows! However, when I do want to fill in my brows and make them look 'on fleek', this is the product that I use to transform my brows!

A few months ago I purchased the MAC Fluidline Brow Gelcreme in the shade ‘Deep Dark Brunette’. This product is said to be long-wearing and waterproof, so I wanted to try it out! I found it really hard to get hold of this product as it always seemed to be sold out. I recommend signing up for the email notification from MAC Cosmetics as they email you when it is back in stock, which is really helpful.

I fill in my eyebrows with this product using my MAC 266 brush, but any angled brush would do the trick! I like to apply this lightly, with a soft hand, as I prefer a more natural looking brow. This product is perfect for me as it can create either a natural or dramatic brow. This product dries really fast and it also doesn’t budge throughout the day, which I love! It definitely lives up to its claim of being 'long-wearing and waterproof', which is perfect for summer especially. A little goes a long way with this, so I recommend only applying a small amount, and then building it up to however you like your brows to look.


I opted for the shade ‘Deep Dark Brunette’ as I have quite dark eyebrows. When applied lightly, I feel like this shade is more of a light brown colour with warm, red-ish undertones. I would say that the shades for this product is limited, by only having 3 to choose from, which is quite disappointing. However this product makes my brows appear full and thick yet also natural. What more can I ask for?
