I have a confession. As beauty crazed as I am, my make-up brush collection is lacking in the quantity and quality departments. On a daily basis I keep my make-up simple, so an arsenal of brushes just never seemed necessary. It wasn’t until recently that I opened my eyes to how much easier and precise make-up application can be when using the proper brushes. When I heard Sonia Kashuk was releasing a 15-piece limited edition brush set for $40, I knew it would be worth the investment.
