The main thing you need to create an effortless and flawless look is brushes. This is just a list of some of the most known brush brands and where you can find them but there is sooo many more companies that make brushes of different qualities,prices, and selection.
The top brushes that everyone recommends are MAC brushes. The quality of MAC brushes along with their cosmetics is perfection but with a price of between $17.50-$52.00 there are so many other companies that make products just as good at a price that wont empty your bank account.
You can buy MAC brushes and other MAC products at http://www.maccosmetics.com/
while MAC brushes are great there is also plenty of duplicate brushes with just as good quality but at a much better price.
For starters there are Sigma Brushes
Sigma brushes are exact dupes of MAC. The creator of these brushes wanted to create brushes that were of exact or maybe even better quality of MAC but at a price that virtually anyone can afford. And among some beauty gurus they have admitted that sigma brushes may even be better quality then MAC. These amazing brushes even have the same numbers as MAC but with an SS before the number for example:
the SS239 by sigma would be the equivalent of a MAC 239 and so on and so forth.

Another great brand of brushes are sephora brand brushes
These brushes are very soft and easy to use. while they are a bit pricey they have a huge selection of all different types,shapes,and sizes. You can find pretty much any brush your looking for if you step into a sephora and they always have some sort of brush set you can find for a pretty good deal.

Next we have Sonia Kashuk brushes which you can buy at any Target. i have to say these are one of my favorite lower end brushes. they are so soft and theres a wide variety to choose from plus during holidays you can buy awesome little sets that come with some cute travel bags. The quality of these brushes is fantastic for such a small price i definitely reccomend them to anyone that is just starting out and needs to build their collection.
