I'm a bit of a highlighter addict, but surprisingly I don't have any brushes specifically made for highlighters! I normally just use the edge of my fluffy blush brush, but thanks to Sephora Collection's Get Glowing Highlighting Brush Set* ($56) I now have three incredible highlighting brushes!
These three brushes are of course made with synthetic bristles (I wouldn't use anything else!), and they aren't tested on animals. These bristles are incredibly soft, and they make applying your makeup so enjoyable and relaxing.
The Flat Blending Brush has a flat top and it is best used to smooth out edges or to even out product. The bristles on this brush are very densely packed, so it buffs out product really easily.
The Sculpting Complexion Brush has a curved tip and is best used to apply and blend out product. You can concentrate shimmer on the longer bristles and use the shorter bristles to blend, resulting in a softer application. The skinny tip of this brush can be used to apply highlighter in a smaller area, such as the cupid's bow and the inner corners of the eyes.
The Small Highlighting Brush looks a lot like a fluffy eye shadow brush, and it could probably be used for just that purpose. Additionally, it makes for a great brush to apply highlighter on the high points of your face - cheekbones, brow bones, bridge of your nose, etc.
These three brushes come housed in a small magnetic pouch, along with Sephora pro tips on how to best use these brushes. I really like all three brushes, and I think that any beauty addict will get a lot of use out off this set! Have you used any brushes from the Sephora Collection before? Which brushes are your favourites?
