Paint Brushes for Makeup?

I saw a Youtube video recently from a very lovely lady, debbick1 (click on the link to check out her YT channel and subscribe) who had discovered a much cheaper alternative to makeup brushes. We all know that really good ones (ie MAC) can cost an arm and a leg so if a cheaper alternative can be found then why not give it a go?

Debby very kindly offered to send me some and I very readily agreed:) Today my parcel arrived and in it was 3 of the nicest brushes I have ever seen. They are every bit as soft as she said they were in her video and they feel like really great quality.

From left to right we have Loew-Cornell 270 Maxine's Mop

Robert Simmons E52 Oval Mop and finally

Robert Simmons S57

The Loew-Cornell one looks like a bigger version of the MAC 239 and it will be great for putting colour all over the lid. The middle one looks perfect for foundation and the last one is like a slanted eyeliner brush. I am really looking forward to trying these out and can't wait to let you know what I think.

Debby also has a great blog you should check out and follow:)

Have you ever used paintbrushes for your makeup?


  1. I use paint brushes for my make-up :) Their pretty good, especially the small ones for eyeliner

  2. @Lousie It's great to know that other people use them. This could be my new obsession lol xx

  3. Jenny,

    We sell loads of Royal Foundation brushes and get really good feedback about them even from make up artists so may be worth a try sometime.
