Collection: Makeup Brushes

Besides hoarding nail polishes and makeup, I tend to go overboard with makeup brushes. I often feel compelled to buy any new brush that my favorite brands come out with, even if I already have one that functions the same way, or is exactly like it. In fact, I have so many that I can't use them all on the daily basis.
However, I think you will get a lot out of viewing my ever-growing collection. This post should help you select the right brush for your needs the next time you are brush shopping. I will name each brush, as well as what I use it for, or what it can be used for.
