Hi all,

I'm looking to buy some makeup brushes but MAC, Bobbi Brown and Illamasqua are out of my price range. I don't really want to be spending more than £18 per brush, maybe a little more for the ones I'll use the most (blusher, eyeshadow). Have you got any recommendations for good quality brushes that aren't going to cost me an arm and a leg? I understand that quality doesn't come cheap, and if it turns out that £25 per brush is the right price, then I'll pay that, but as I have no idea what counts as 'good quality', I wanted to ask here first.

Thanks in advance!

Im not an MUA, but I've got a set of benefit makeup brushes, the are gorgeous. Very soft bristles, lovely quality! They were a gift so not sure how much they were, but I would definately reccommend them!

I like my Crown Brushes. If you buy straight from the company you can get them at wholesale prices and it's amazingly cheap.

There's quite a few recommendations here: http://inmykit.com/makeup_brushes.htm
I really like that website as a whole, though it is US-centric and not all the recommended brands are available in the UK.

...And even as I post that I remember that you're not based in the UK anymore anyway. XD
