Here’s just a tiny post to quickly address the awesomeness of the MAC 217 brush. It’s basically a fluffy brush typically used for blending out eyeshadow (based on its shape), but it can be used for a number of different things. Here’s Wayne Goss demonstrating the many uses of the 217:
Even without all of these other uses, however, the MAC 217 is always praised to the high heavens by everyone and their mother, because it does its job really, really, really well.
I didn’t have a lot of brushes when I started out on my makeup journey, and I’ve just really used a MAC 217 and then a RealTechniques eyeshadow brush, which is awesome as well. And then I met a few blending brushes that I didn’t get on with, which made me appreciate this one all the more.
I love you, 217.
