Tarte Minutes To Mermaid Brush Set, originally $42, now $25

These mermaid-inspired brushes are just too cute not to purchase. They’re so bright and fun! I love that I can apply a makeup look in literally minutes (like the name of this set).

These caught my eye the second I saw them. Are they just not so dreamy? There are 11 brushes in the set that is perfect for any makeup look.

Sephora Collection Ready To Roll Brush Set, $70

Please don’t let the price tag of this set scare you away. I know what you’re probably thinking. How is $70 affordable?! Trust me, you’re not going to find ten quality brushes for this price. These are by far my favorite out of the bunch because they’re so soft. I feel like a professional makeup artist everytime I do my makeup (though I think I have no idea what I’m doing).
