Affordable Makeup Brushes: Face

A makeup newbie out there relying on Youtube and blogs to learn, might start to believe that the only makeup brush manufacturers out there are MAC, Sigma, and Sedona Lace. The beauty community only really seems to talk about those three brands. I might be guilty of it to an extent, since I'm a Sigma affiliate. But I like to think that when I find affordable brush alternatives, I don't keep that information to myself. A keen example, my MAC 217 dupe post is one of the most read on this blog.

So, in keeping with that philosophy, I decided to make a video about affordable makeup brushes that aren't Sigma, MAC, or Sedona Lace. Afterall, those are all good brushes, and the Sigma and Sedon Lace are less expensive than MAC, but they aren't the only inexpensive (and good) brushes out there.
