    Okey, so it's my birthday today and my boyfriend gave me 200 dollars to spend on makeup. I do have a foundation, foundation powder, mascara, naked 1 palette and a blush.... What would you buy? And what brushes do you recommend for doing eyeshadow thank you

    Where do you want to spend your money? if it is at Sephora I think Sephora brush collection (I really like #28 small dome cream brush, #90 complexion brush and #56) and MUFE brushes ( #216 Medium precision eye blender, #226 medium eye shader, #156 large flat blush brush good for contouring also!) will cover your basic need and more. If you want to do some online shopping check Beautlish for Chikuhodo and Wayne Goss (I personally have #2 powder brush, #19 medium crease brush and #4 smaller crease brush from WG) brushes they are really nice.
    I think you only need a powder brush, blush brush, crease brush, detail brush, eyeliner brush, and eye shadow brush.
    your husband really gave you a nice gift!!!

    Happy a Birthday I'd recommend a MAC 217 brush! I have tons of other supposed "dupes" and other blenders I love, but it's my favorite multipurpose brush. For your face, Ulta has an It Cosmetics blush brush on sale & it's wonderful. Other than that, I'd treat myself to a few lip products...maybe a neutral lipstick for everyday, a fun bold summer color, and a shiny lipgloss. The Sephora Collection stuff is reasonably priced and good quality. Have some fun!!!

    Happy Birthday!

    Do you have a particular makeup product that you like to buy or tend to use up quickly? I'd start there. Since it's for your birthday, you can also buy something that's a little outside the box for you that you've been wanting to try.

    My eyeshadow brushes (and the majority of my brush collection) are from Real Techniques. They have a Starter Set for their eyeshadow brushes (and it looks like they have a 25% off sale today on their site). I like them. They're very soft and easy to use.

    Hakuhodo J5523, J5533, J142, and J146; a MAC 239; a pencil brush (e.g., MAC 219); and an angled brush (e.g., MAC 263 or 266).

    Hakuhodo can be purchased online at hakuhodousa.com

    And happy birthday!
    NARS SG Siberia(ish) & RCC Chantilly; Kevyn Aucoin SSE in SX01; ABH Stick Foundation in Porcelain; circa 10-15 in MAC intensity. Oily t-zone.

    MAC217 brush is a good choice. In addition to your make up collection, lip tint is recommended.
