Why Makeup Brushes Are Expensive – And What You Can Do About It

Makeup brushes are Picasso’s toolkit to every budding professional makeup artist. Quality makeup brushes, especially foundation brushes, can change the way your makeup looks and feels. An amazing brush will make it easier to apply better looking makeup while creating a personal, relaxing experience for you in the process. From synthetic to animal hair, wood handle to vibrant colors – the options of makeup brushes and brush kits out there are endless. But, good brushes usually come with a ridiculously high price tag, which can be a pain for makeup artists starting out with a smaller brush budget. The good news? There are ways to get high quality, glam-tacular makeup brushes for half the cost of the brand versions or even free, and we are going to give you the inside scoop!

Ask Your Favorite Beauty Counter For Free Makeup Brushes

Yes, you read that right. The best way to get free brushes is to ask for them! Often times, the beauty counters at department stores like Macy’s, Nordstrom and Bloomingdales offer free makeup brushes with the purchase of a specific makeup product or beauty kit. If you were planning on buying that product (or let’s be real, if you went to the store wanting to buy something even if you don’t know what it is), why not take advantage of the situation and get a free makeup brush or two out of it? Asking the girl at the beauty counter can also help you get “in the know” about any secret promotions happening! Most of the time, people don’t ask, and then they are left wondering why they spent $40 more than the people who did!
