For Eyes

Eye Stunners 6-Piece Eye Brush Collection, £23 | Morphe

Morphe is one of our favourite high-street make-up brands and it’s got a brush set for every budget and preference. This one has everything you need to create a number of eye looks, including a bent liner brush that is so fine for flawless feline flicks – it works well with liquids and powders. We love the dual-ended brush too, which is brilliant for grooming brows and smoothing stray hairs. Like others on this list, it comes in a handy pouch to keep everything clean – essential for any tools you use on or around your eyes.

For Anyone On A Budget

Everyday Essentials, £16.79 (was £20.99) | Real Techniques

Practical, compact and affordable, the Real Techniques brushes might not be the chicest, but they get the job done. This set includes the brand’s Deluxe Crease Brush and Expert Face Brush – both of which are often recommended by the pros for buffing in concealer, foundation and tinted moisturisers. You’ll also find its blush brush, complexion sponge and setting brush inside – we like to use the smallest one for eye make-up. Under £20, you can’t go wrong.

For Busy People

Charlotte’s Magic Mini Brush Set, £40 | Charlotte Tilbury

Housed in a slick, velvet pouch, this set contains all of Charlotte Tilbury’s bestselling brushes. Each one is in a miniature size, though, so they’re perfect for travel or chucking in your bag. There’s a foundation, powder and two eyeshadow brushes inside to help you perfect any make-up look, and each one is easy to use and clean. It’s a small thing, but the magnetic clasp on the pouch adds to the luxe feel, while keeping all your tools germ-free.

For A Flawless Face

The Complexion Brush Gift Set, £54 | Rose Inc

If you’re looking to invest in high-quality complexion brushes, this is the set for you. The chic tube is so handy, while the quality of the brushes is really impressive. Inside you’ll find a concealer, blush, foundation and bronzer brush, all made with vegan-friendly, soft bristles. Despite being gentle, they’re densely packed, so the bristles hold onto product for a smooth, seamless blend every time.

For The Basics

The Essential Brush Set, £79 | Zoeva

When we ask make-up artists to share their favourite brushes, Zoeva is a brand that comes up a lot. With an overwhelming number of sets on offer, this one is the best if you’re looking to cover all the bases. It contains six different brushes: the foundation buffer, highlight, blush and contour brush, as well as its bestselling crease definer, smokey shader and wing liner brush. We have to say, its complexion brushes are some of the best for blending different textures – be it powders, liquids or creams. Extra points go to the packaging, which is fully recyclable – including the pouch the brushes come in.
