MAC 217 ($24)
One of the most important brushes you'll need in your collection as long as you're doing eye makeup is a blending brush. Listen, I don't believe that you need to have your eyeshadows 100% or even 5% blended if you don't want it to be blended. Editorial makeup exists. It's a thing. I'm tired of people making blended eyeshadow a requirement. It's not. But, if you want to have the blended eyeshadow, you need to have a really good brush!
I've tried a number of different kinds of blending brushes in my five years of using makeup. I've used flat ones, domed fluffy ones, various kinds.
My favourite blending brush, hands down, is the MAC 217. In the picture above, you can tell which brush I've had for four years and which brush is only two weeks old. I use this brush in every look along with my Sigma E25 and Sephora Oval Blending Brush. All brushes listed are great, but for me, nothing beats the MAC 217.
