How to build a professional makeup brush set for less than $60

They say an artist is only as good as her tools.  This may or may not be true, but it's nearly impossible to be a make-up artist without having a dedicated set of brushes for clients.  I've put together a list of my favorite brushes and tell you how to build this set from using high-quality vegan brushes.

Brushes you will need:
  • 1 foundation brush
  • 1 concealer brush
  • 1 combination brow brush/lash comb
  • 3-4 assorted eyeshadow brushes
  • 2 angled liner brushes
  • 1 blush brush
  • 1 powder brush
  • 3-4 lip brushes
How to build this kit using EcoTools:
 If you're not wild about EcoTools, you can also build or purchase a quality brush set for less than $60 from Crown Brush.  They utilize animal and synthetic hair in their brushes.

Thinking about going pro? Check out my book, The Mercenary Makeup Artist: Breaking into the Business with Style.
