My Top 6 / Favourite Makeup Brushes Right Now!


I am a makeup brush addict and I love adding to my collection to my brush collection. Investing in and using the right makeup brushes and tools will not only help give you a flawless makeup look, but you’ll actually feel much better about yourself when your makeup is applied correctly.

Since becoming the official brand ambassador for CrownBrushUk, which you can read all about here – lots of you have been emailing me asking what are my favourite makeup brushes from the VAST range on the CrownBrush website. Lately with all of the travelling I have been doing and with the limited hand luggage space, I could only bring a few brushes with me and these have been my lifesavers, literally cant do my makeup without them!

For those of you asking about my SoSueMeBrush Collection with CrownBrush, there just might be a limited edition for summer, so keep an eye here for updates 🙂

1. Foundation Brush


I love the duo fibre brushes for foundation application! This brush gives an even application and feels ultra soft on the face! This is also great for blending for contour and highlight. See ‘How To Contour’ video here.

My Choice: Crown C406 Large Duo Fibre €11.61. Click here to buy.

2. Blusher Brush


This Crown blusher brush that is ultra soft and angular, which I love – this brush is ideal for giving colour and life to the cheeks! I prefer an angled blusher brushes because you get an easy application of blush. This type of brush is also great for contouring the cheekbones with powder.

My Choice: Crown Angle Contour Blush €10.36. Click here to buy.

3. Eyeshadow Blender Brush


This has to be one of  my top fav’s – I literally cant do my eyeshadow without it! The Crown C$$! Pro Blending Brush has long and super soft bristles which is great for blending out any harsh lines!

My Choice: Crown C441 Pro Blending Brush €4.99. Click here to buy.

4. Under-EyeConcealer Brush


I am loving the Crown C456 Pointed blender for my under eye concealer application.  The Infinity range have been designed to create flawless make-up application which is perfect for high definition work. Uniquely designed to apply powder, cream and liquid products without absorption into the bristles. After I apply my eyeshadow, I always clean up under my eye with concealer and this brush is perfect for that! If you have been at any of my makeup demo’s recently, you would have noticed me using this brush a lot!

My Choice: Crown C406 Pointed Blender €7.49. Click here to buy!

5. Eyeshadow Application


I love a soft haired brush for applying my eyeshadows! This particular Crown 460 brush is perfect for shading and applying your eyeshadow. The hairs are arranged in an oval, firm pointed shape to ensure you get an even defined smoky eye effect. The brush can also be used to buff concealer under eyes especially as synthetic hair can hold cream and powders products well.

My Choice: Crown SSo27 Infinity Blending Brush €6.24. Click here to buy.

6. Eyeliner/Brow Brush


It’s multi-purpose as it can be used on your lash line for eyeliner and on your brows to fill them in. Always go with a slanted angle brush for this!

My Choice: Crown SS025 Syntho Brow Duo €4.99. Click here to buy.


And that’s it girl…. my fav makeup brushes right now. Super affordable and so many uses for each!!

    What’s your advice on cleaning the foundation brush? I washed with a bit of baby shampoo and warm water but was ruined after washing it. Thanks
