From expensive to non-expensive, what are the best makeup applicators and why?

I'm loving the Bobbi Brown brush set I picked up. I think they're very soft, and haven't lost many, if any, hairs yet. Plus, they are short handled which makes it much easier use. Definite thumbs up! Those are the only makeup applicators I use, unless it's the odd Q-tip to smooth out eyeliner or fix mistakes.

I love the Sephora wedge sponges that come in a round plastic container. They are the best sponges I have used. I have a mixture of Trish McEvoy and Chanel brushes. I think the Trish McEvoy are a little better.

I tried Bobbi Brown's brushes, sponges. They are good but it wasted your cosmetics.

Some beuticians said that it is good to use fingers, coz your body temp. could make the foundation/ concealor fit on your face.

I use my fingers when I apply foundation. As for eyeshadows and powders I use Amazing Cosmetics' brushes.

Do you have the AC Velvet Brush? If so, is it any good?

I use Amazing Cosmetics Velvet Powder Brush and
Amazing Cosmetics Eye Shadow Brush. The are good. I used before synthetic brushes and had allergic reactions, so I swithched to natural brushes.

I am also a fan of the Bobbi Brown brushes. I have a friend who is a buyer for the cosmetics section of Neiman Marcus and he says they are the best brushes you can buy. I was happy to hear that since I have been using them for years now Smile

Try Armani brush when applying liquid foundation. It's really good. It helps to create a natural look.

I use the Jane Iredale Handi to apply powder foundation. It's lovely and soft. I also use Bobbi Brown makeup brushes. I use the blush brush, eyeshadow brushes and I also have the foundation brush for liquid foundation, which I think is also very good. Very Happy
