I love getting the chance to take a peek at what’s in the kits of celebrity makeup artists. Their arsenals are always filled with the best foundations, primers, eye shadow palettes, and even skincare products. The items in their collection that I often nerd out the most over, though, are their brushes. Each artist has their own unique taste and preferences when it comes to brushes and they know best because, well, they’re the ones that use them the most.
So, echoing that sentiment, who better to ask for gift recommendations in that realm than the pros? There’s always a plethora of makeup brush gift sets to choose from once the holidays roll around and I asked a couple of makeup artists for their picks. Keep scrolling—these are the sets they’d buy for a friend.
