Whether you're getting inspired by viral makeup TikToks or looking to upgrade your old eyeshadow brushes, you've come to the right place. We have the best eyeshadow brushes that are all reasonably priced (many for unbelievably good deals), top-rated, and consist of a variety of brushes in different shapes and sizes.

The Best Eyeshadow Brushes

What to Consider

  • Quality: There are a few things to consider when determining the quality of any makeup brush and it all has to do with the bristles. The first is softness — the gentler the brush is against your skin, the smoother makeup will apply, and the better this brush is for your actual skin over time. Additionally, quality brushes should be full of plenty of those fluffy bristles.
  • Variety: Depending on what makeup looks you're hoping to create, you'll want a set that can do it all for you. Believe it or not, one size eyeshadow brush does not do it all. There are some for blending, some for your lid, some for your crease, some for eyeliner, the list goes on. Before buying a set, read the fine print to see exactly what brushes are included so you can check them off your wishlist.
  • Bristles: Synthetic bristles are the most popular option as they are vegan and cruelty-free. High-quality (soft and fluffy) synthetic bristles exist and work just as effectively as animal hair bristles — plus, they're ethical.
  • Handle: The sturdiest brushes have quality handles, often made from wood or plastic, and metal pieces to hold the bristles in place without them breaking off or detaching.

Now that you know what you're looking for, it's time to brush up on the best eyeshadow brush sets for flawless looks for years to come.
