I haven't made makeup related posts for a while, mostly since I haven't really tried many new products lately. But I thought I'd show you my little helpers in the field of makeup - brushes (and tools). Some of them are relatively new.. and some of them are not. These are the brushes I use daily, but I would definitely get by with less (especially regarding eye makeup). Don't get me wrong, I don't own tons of brushes and these are not just a little selection of them. These are the ones I've bought and use the most, and I have maybe 2-3 brushes that I own, but don't use, because I either don't like them anymore or I've found a better one.

Pole ammu teinud iluteemalisi postitusi ja arvasin, et nüüd oleks õige aeg jälle üks teha. Kuna ma pole eriti uusi meigiasju katsetanud viimasel ajal, näitan teile hoopiski enda väikeseid meigiabilisi. Mõned neist on olnud mul juba mõned kuud, teised jällegi alles võrdlemisi uued. Need on pintslid, mida kasutan igapäevaselt, kuid kindlasti saaksin vähemaga hakkama (eriti silmamaigi tegemisel). Ärge saage valesti aru, mul ei ole sahtlitäis meigipintsleid ja see pole raskelt tehtud valik neist - mul on vaid mõned pintslid veel, mis aga on jäänud täielikult unarusse, kuna ei meeldi mulle või olen leidnud nende asemele parema. 

FACE
First let's talk about the face brushes. I use the biggest of them - the Buffing Brush, to apply my powder, contour and blush (in that exact order). Medium one - the Contour Brush for my highlight and the smallest of them - the Detailer Brush, to apply my Mac Studio Finish Consealer. The brushes are from the Real Techniques Core Collection and I would recommend them to anyone. It is a great start-out package. There was a fourth, the Foundation Brush, but I stopped using it when I got the Beauty Blender. Now, the beauty blender..  I don't even know what to say to do it justice. It is absolutely amazing! It deserves a post of it's own. I owned the cheap ebay version of it, I mean it did the job.. kind of.. (now thinking) well, not really. The same second I tryed my new beauty blender, I threw the cheap one in the trash. I use it to apply and/or blend my foundation as well as both of my concealers (for undereye area and blemishes). 
. . . . . . . . . . . .
Esimesena toon välja need, mida kasutan näol. Kõige suuremat neist - Buffing brush'i kasutan  näopuudri, kontuuri ja põsepuna pealepanekuks (täpselt sellises järjekorras). Suuruselt keskmist - Contour brush'i kasutan aga hoopiski särapuudri pealekandmiseks. Pisemat - Detailer brush'i kasutan Mac Studio Finish peitekreemi jaoks. Pintslid on pärit Real Techniques Core kollektsioonist ja on väga kiiduväärt. Soovitan kõigile - see on väga hea stardipakett. Tegelikult on pakis ka neljas - jumestuskreemi pintsel, kuid sellest loobusin niipea, kui ostsin omale Beauty Blender'i. Oeh, Beauty blender.. ma ei teagi, kuidas väljendada seda, kuidas see mulle meeldib. See on lihtsalt i-me-li-ne! Sellele peaks olema pühendatud lausa omaenda postitus. Omasin varem selle odavat versiooni ebayst ja noh, see sai enamvähem töö tehtud, mitte midagi erilist.. või isegi head, kuid see sama sekund, kui proovisin esimest korda päris õiget beauty blenderit, läks see odav versioon otsejoones prügikasti. Kasutan seda nüüd jumestuskreemi ja peitekreemide (nii silmaaluste värskendamise kui ka punnide katmise) pealekandmiseks ja/või hajutamiseks. 

Tahaksin lähiajal osta omale ka Real Techniques'i selle hiiglasliku Powder brush'i, kuid eks näis. :)

EYES
Now moving on to the eyes. These three are the ones I use the most. These are the Mac 217, Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 (Pointed Crease Brush) and Seventeen Eyeshadow Brush. 
Let's start with the best- the Mac 217.  This is my latest purchase and seriously, this brings your makeup to a whole other level. My eyeshadow game has gone up a million levels with that brush. I guess using the right brushes really do make a differance :D. This does such a good job blending, that if you are looking to buy any eyeshadow brushes, any at all, I'd buy this one or the newer one with smaller bristles (they are quite expensive, but you really don't need anything else when you have either of them). 
The RT (Real Techniques) and the Seventeen onen I bought when I was in the UK. I use the Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 to apply medium dark colours to my crease (I say medium dark, since I've found it doesn't work well with my darker eyeshadows, it makes quite a harsh line and I would have to go over it with the Mac brush anyways). It's pointed tip is also good for putting the eyeshadows under the eyes (make sure to blend).
The Seventeen Eyeshadow Brush is kind of useless now, but it was only 2 pounds, so I thought what the hell. It does an OK job, but after buying the Mac 217, I use it less and less every day. However, as I did buy it, I still try to find a place for it in my makeup routine. Right now I use it to highlight the inner corner and the middle of my eyelids. 
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . 
Liikudes edasi silmameigi juurde, on mul kolm pintslit, mida ma kasutan. Need on Mac 217, Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 (Pointed Crease Brush) ja Seventeen Eyeshadow pintsel. 
Alustame parimast - Mac 217. See on pintslitest mu hiliseim ost ja pean tõdema, et see on viinud mu silmameigi hoopis uuele tasemele. See teeb niivõrd head tööd värvide pealekandmises ja hajutamises, et kui keegi otsib omale silmameigi pintslit, soovitan osta just selle või sellle uuema variandi, mis on veidi väiksem ja lühemate harjakestega (need on küll üpris kallid, kuid kumbagi neist omades, pole muid silmapintsleid ausalt öeldes vajagi)
RT ja Seventeeni pintslid ostsin juunis Inglismaalt. Kasutan Real Techniques Bold Metals 201 pintslit keskmise tumedusega värvi pealekandmiseks silma.. crease'i (ilmselgelt on mul probleem eestikeelsete iluterminitega :D). Rõhutan, et keskmisega tumedusega, kuna see pintsel ei tööta mul hästi tumedamate toonide pealekandmiseks (jätab liiga tugeva joone ja pean niikuinii Mac'i pintsliga selle üle käima). Teravam tipp võimaldab hästi värvida ka silma alumist joont (aga ära unusta hajutada). 
Kolmas, Seventeen'i pintsel on mul küll meigikotis, kuid leiab kasutust pigem vähe võrreldes teistega. See teeb oma töö okeilt ära, kuid pärast Mac'i pintsli ostmist leiab see üha vähem ja vähem kasutust. Kuid, kuna see sai juba ostetud (oli vaid 2 naela, kuid siiski:D), olen ikka üritanud leida sellele mingit kasutust. Hetkel panen sellega sära silma sisenurka ja lau kõrgeimale kohale.
