I don’t know about you but when I calculate all that I spend on makeup in a year it amounts to…waaay too much! Maintaining our looks is expensive but it doesn’t have to be so! There are tons of cheaper brands that have some of the best makeup, and I’m always on the lookout for ways to make my makeup routine cheaper. Without the right tools in life, you never get the best results. That’s why I’ve put together a few cheap makeup brush sets that won’t break the bank and that I think are really good brushes.

Real Techniques Core Collection Kit
Real technique brushes are one of my favourite brands for brushes. They are amazing quality and quite simply, hard not to love! This Real Techniques Core Collection Kit comes with 4 brushes and a cute carry case. You can get the brushes in 2 different colours, purple or an orangey colour. Both colours are really pretty.
It comes with a contour brush which is used to create definition on your cheekbones and to add highlighter. A pointed foundation brush which is used for liquid foundation. It’s easier than a big foundation brush because you can be more precise in areas where you want more or less coverage. It also comes with a detailer brush which is good for concealing small problem areas, or for getting a perfect shape when applying lipstick. The last brush it comes with is a buffing brush. This is used for applying finishing powder or mineral foundation.
All the brushes are really soft and easy to bend with, they will give you that flawless look. The bristles are made of good quality so they don’t constantly fall out. They are cruelty-free.

USpicy 32 Piece Makeup Brush set
This makeup brush set is a real bargain. It comes with 32, yes, your read correctly that’s 32 different brushes! It comes with a cute makeup case to store the brushes which is also great for travelling with. The brushes are very soft and are made from synthetic hair. There’s a brush for every need in this set. It does come with a few duplicate eye brushes but anyone who does a lot of makeup knows they need duplicates so this is very useful. The brushes all come individually wrapped which is a very nice feature.
This set is good for beginners and professionals. Everyone can gain from it. The only complaint from this set is that when it arrived it smelt of glue. The company said this is to be expected and all you have to do is air them out for a day for the smell to disappear.
This is one of the best cheap makeup brush sets around. It may not have THE best brushes in the world, but all of the brushes are good and easy to use. I definitely recommend this set to anyone looking for a real steal. Its very good value for money.
