With quality beauty tools, you get more out of your makeup. And with some TLC, a good set will last a long time. Great makeup brushes come at all price points, and some of my favorites are from a brand called ecoTools.

ecotools+5+piece+brush+set Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman Award Winner: EcoToolsecoTools’ brushes are easy on the wallet and on the earth – they feature bamboo handles (which are highly sustainable), vegan bristles, metal from recycled aluminum cans, and reusable pouches printed with plant-based ink.

I am a big fan of the ecoTools Bamboo 5 Piece Brush Set ($9.99), which includes a Powder Brush, Concealer Brush, Eye Shading Brush, Baby Kabuki Brush, and a linen/hemp cosmetics bag.

These tools rival prestige brushes that cost six or seven times as much. And you will be absolutely blown away by the softness of the bristles and how well they apply your makeup. They make all other brushes green with envy.

ecoTools products can be found at Target, Walgreens, Wegmans, and drugstore.com.

sonia+kashuk+hidden+treasure+brush+set Sonia Sells Seashell Inspired Brushes at Target Stores

sonia kashuk08 Sonia Sells Seashell Inspired Brushes at Target StoresI’m going to be perfectly honest. This coral-inspired Hidden Treasure Brush Set by Sonia Kashuk is so damn pretty that I wouldn’t care if the brushes weren’t very good. Not that they’re bad. Actually, I really don’t know because I haven’t bought them yet. But for just $19.99, I intend to find out.

The Coral Reef Highlighter Brush (left) is equally ferosh.

The sparkly coral handles just beg to be displayed. These brushes would look so chic splayed out on the vanity in a beach house bedroom. Right? Much classier than the nautical bric-à-brac nonsense that typically clutters vacation home counters.
