Favourite Contouring Brushes ft. Eco Tools, Real Techniques, MAC

Eco Tools Contouring Brush (part of set)
Real Techniques Contour Brush (part of Core Collection)
Unbranded Angled Contour Brush* (part of set)
MAC 168 brush 

ECO TOOLS CONTOURING BRUSH - TK Maxx (available here)
I bought this brush in a 4 piece brush set from TK Maxx a while ago, and shared the 4 brushes with my friend because we both wanted them but there was only one pack. It was around £7ish but online it's £17.44, so I'd definitely check out your local TK Maxx if you're looking into buying it! This is essentially just a fat version of the Contour Brush from Real Techniques. It adds more product that the RT version so it easy to go a bit overboard but blends it out so seamlessly and looks so subtle and natural. 

Part of the Core Collection, the Contour Brush from Real Techniques is amazing at creating an accurate contour. It is quite dense so it can also pick up a bit too much product (especially with the Sleek Contour Kit) but you just have to have a light hand! That being said, I find this the best brush for using with my Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer because for me that has barely any colour pay off, but with this brush it picks up a good amount! The Core Collection is quite pricey at £20.99 but you also get 3 other great quality brushes! I have a post here all about them!

Again, this is just the fat and more dense version of the next brush, the MAC 168. This is also part of a 4 piece brush set from BangGood which I have also done a post on here. This brush is a real multi-tasker, it's great for buffing in foundation and any type of cream product. The angled edge makes it easy to get right under my (non existent) cheek bones and the denseness (is that a word? If not, it is now) really helps to create a strong contour, whilst still buffing it out making it appear seamless.

MAC 168 BRUSH - Selfridges
This brush is a little pricey at almost £30 but it is definitely my favourite brush that I own! It's so delicate and places just the right amount of product on your face. This is definitely one for people, like me, who sometimes forget how much of a light hand they might need! Although mine is dirty, the hairs wash really well and come out white. This is also a multi-tasker for powder products, I use it with my face powder, blush, contour! I really want to find a dupe for this brush as it is so beautiful but pretty pricey!

What are your favourite contour brushes?

  11. I love this post, I find contour brushes to be some of the hardest to choose as certain shapes work really well and others don't. I really want to try the MAC one but it is pretty pricey! I might check out the Real Techniques one as that's much cheaper.
