Paintbrushes that double as Makeup Brushes!

Hey everyone!
So recently when I was digging through my ginormous drawers of school supplies, I found a big set of paintbrushes! Being the beauty fanatic that I am, I immediately started sifting through them to find some ones that I could use for makeup! I found two great ones, that I'm going to share with you today! 

The first one is from Contemporary Crafts and it is 1". It is a typical 1 inch across square cut paint brush. The edge is blunt and straight cut across, but its still really soft! I would use this for foundation because its synthetic so it won't absorb your foundation and it is big enough that you can cover your entire face easily, but is small enough that you can get under the eyes and around the nose easily! Is this the best foundation brush in the world? Probably not, but I do think that this is great for the price and if you can find one for cheap, get it! Just remember to wash before use! 

The second one is another one from Contemporary Crafts and it is called 3. I am not quite sure what it means, but its a skinny detail brush! I like to use this for concealing small blemishes, but you can also use it for powder or gel eyeliner. I get a little bit of my bobbi brown concealer on the tip of it and I can control where I apply the concealer with greater ease and I also feel like I use less product! I think it may be a little thick for gel eyeliner, but I really love using it for concealer and this one has been beating out some of my actual concealer brushes! 

So that was my thoughts on two amazing paintbrushes makeup brushes! If you come across these in an office supply store, grab them because they are amazing! Especially the little brush! If you have any other paintbrushes that double as makeup brushes, let me know what they are in the comments!
