New Year = New Makeup Brushes

It’s out with the old and in with the new! This is the time of the year that everyone is on it, setting goals, cleaning and starting new.  I am definitely in the New Year spirit and I am cleaning out everything. You know it is the New Year spirit when you have sticky notes everywhere for all of the goals that you are ready to accomplish.  I just wonder why I can’t do this any other time of the year though.  Anyways, one of the many areas that people think to clean out is all of their old makeup, but do you ever think about your makeup brushes and getting new makeup brushes?

Of course, if you are taking care of your brushes the need to get new makeup brushes that often isn’t really a thought.  But with all of the makeup that I am getting rid of, the new makeup that I am going to buy and this “new year, new look” thing that I am going for, I need new makeup brushes to make sure I accomplish all of that!

New Year, New Makeup Brushes

I have recently been helping my sister “up her makeup game” and we have been talking a lot about the new makeup brushes that she should get.  I usually lean towards high quality yet budget friendly brushes, so my first suggestions are usually Morphe or Sonia Kashuk.  And I never judge the e.l.f. Cosmetics brushes! Those brushes really make me happy.  But when I was giving advice to my sister and even thinking about buying a pricier, luxury set of new makeup brushes for myself, I thought that I needed to do a little more research.  I came across this article, and the detail is impeccable!  They tested out so many brushes, all of my questions were answered!  Now I am just curious to know is how my Morphe brushes compare to them all.
