Paint brushes as makeup brushes?!

New to makeup? Lost a brush and don’t want to repurchase it? Just want to try something different out? Next time you are at a craft store, check out the paint brush section. You would be surprised to see how many paint brushes could be used as liner, shadow, blush, or even foundation brushes.  Now, I certainly wouldn’t recommend buying your entire makeup brush collection from the craft store but certain brushes do work well as affordable alternatives.

I have personally used the fine liner paint brushes as eyeliner brushes for gel eyeliner and they have worked very well. I have also used a flat brush as an eyeshadow brush and it worked well too. Feel the brushes to make sure that the bristles aren’t too rough and uncomfortable. Take a look around and see what you can come up with!
