Oh, I know just how pricy makeup brushes can be. And if you're aiming for the best quality, just like most of us, then they're no doubt going to empty your wallet. Buying makeup brushes straight from stores can be super expensive. But I'm not talking about sets of brushes — just one single brush can be about $20 - $50.
