Charm Essentials Brushes I Highly Recommend!

I haven't talked about makeup brushes for the longets time!  I guess, my brushes collection is complete and I take care of them even after X years, they still work good as new!

But for newbies or even professionals who plan to invest on something inexpensive yet affordable, I always recommend one of my favorite local brand Charm Essentials.

Founded year 2007, the year I started Blogging, I've seen how this brand grew and how I grew with the brand!

(P.S. I am still using the Charm PRO MakeUp Artist Tool Belt as of the moment!)

Rounding up all the Charm Essentials brushes I own, I picked some essentials that I truly think you can look into or invest on because I have been using them for personal use still!

Light Make Up Wearers

You may look into Charm Esentials Double Duty Makeup Brush Set (Php1,599.00), I own this set since 2014 and my set is still looking brand-spanking new after 4 long years.

This set comes with dual-ended brushes from Powder and Blush Brush, Liquid Foundation and Concealer Brush, Eyeshadow and Blending Brush, Angled Eyeliner/ Eyebrow and Pencil Point brush and lastly, a lip brush.

This set is Vegan so they are all synthetic hairs making it easy to wash!  If you are the type who like to do minimal makeup, this set is perfect because it covers the basics - Base Makeup, Brows, Eyes (single or double shadow application), Eyeliner, Blush and Lips!

Light to Heavy Makeup Wearers
If you are advanced with your makeup game but on days, you can go subtle and bare, this set is a perfect one for you!  I always tote this along with me on Business trips whenever I need to doll-up for an important event!  You've seen them so many times when I do "Get Ready With Me" videos on IG Stories!

Charm Travel Pro Set Suzie Edition

A similar one is called SONIA if you like the animal-print pattern of the pouch! If you wanted something simple, go for Suzie Edition.  I like how compact it is and how it house ALL the brushes I need to create even the most complicated makeup looks!  The term "Travel Pro" is a perfect name for this set as it is perfect for Travel and even works for Professionals!  

No Makeup Makeup Look Lovers
Now, if you claim to know nothing about makeup and can only apply powder on a daily basis, fret not, you don't need to push yourself on investing makeup brush sets but you can always go for singles!  Thankfully, Charm Makeup Brushes are also available in singles (Check this out!)

And I've picked a few of those single brushes I really use!

Charm Luxe Mini Kabuki Brush

This cutie-patootsie comes with a nice pink pouch making it perfect to tote along for instant retouch!  I have always been advising my makeup seminar attendees to apply powder foundation with a sponge and retouch with a brush.  The effect will be more natural and a mini Kabuki Brush is a perfect too to look fresh easily!

Charm Retractable Powder Brush

To those who prefer the regular powder brush that can also double up as a blush brush, highlight and contour brush, you can also look into the Charm Retractable Powder Brush.  This brush is retractable so you can actually control the density of the brush by lifting the cover as shown on photo below.

Of course, with the cover, you can just dump this inside your bag without having to worry about makeup mess!

If you watch my AMW IG Stories, you'll know that I highly recommend on Flat Top Kabuki brush for powder foundation application!  I've always loved my Charm Luxe Flat Top Kabuki Brush (Php600.00) but after trying out Soffia Opulence Perfect Skin Angled Foundation Brush, this brush actually went straight to my PRO kit eventhough I loved to use it for myself! 

This brush doubles up as a Primer applicator, liquid foundation or even concealer applicator brush!  The bristles are densely packed making it easy to create medium to full coverage without constantly rubbing the face!

If you ask me, my favorite Charm Essential Brushes and SOFFIA Brushes list goes on and on, but I only picked some of my favorites based from YOUR requests and requirements.

I hope this list helps you in picking the right brush for you.  Because a good makeup tool will create better-looking makeup looks!
