Individual versus Sets
A makeup brush set is a good way to go if you are starting over and have no brushes. However, every time I buy a set, I find myself wanting a different brush for this or that, so I choose to buy them each separately. This is usually a little more costly, but I like having good brushes that work well for my application. It’s also nice because you can space it out a little bit, and buy each one “as needed” and not make it hurt so bad all at one time.
