Four brushes for blending and crease work

The search for the perfect crease brush can be both long and hard, but when you find one you love then the struggle is worth it. It sounds dramatic, but a bad crease brush can be the root to a lot of frustration.

Now, I feel like crease brushes and how you like them are quite individual. For example, the MAC 222 brush is my favorite for blending shadow into the crease, but my friend finds it way too scratchy. I enjoy the tapered brush head and the way it works the shadow into the crease without getting it blotchy. The Sigma E40 is good for blending colours together, as well as washing colour all over the lid. A perfect “do it all” brush. The Urban Decay brush came with the Naked2 Palette and it’s double ended; one end is good for patting on shadow (although I use it for concealer) and the tapered side works great for blending – as long as you’re patient. LAstly we have the Real Techniques essential crease brush. I love using this for defining the crease, and I find that it’s the perfect brush for blending dark colours; it’s so small that it’s precise, but still very efficient.  What’s your favorite crease brush?
