I can't afford MAC make up brushes, any other alternatives?

I'm a little hesitant about blowing so much for make up brushes, do you girls know if there are other brushes that perform well too? I'm specifically in need of eyeshadow brushes, a skunk brush (or any blush brush), and a powder blush.

Thanks! :D

    Mary Kay has a cute and great Glamour Brush set that I love and that's not too expensive, especially compared to MAC brushes. There's an angled shadow brush, a blending brush, a eyeliner brush, a eyebrow/lash brush, a powder brush and a larger blending brush in a cute black rollup bag with room for other brushes you have already. I think the set is $45.

    i was on ebay last night, there is a HUGE range of quality animal hair brushes, sets from 5 brushes up to 30, and prices from $10- $200 in australian dollars, im a makeup artist and considering buying some of these, as they're made in hongkong and an absolute bargain!!!

    try sonia kusak (found at target). they are comparable to the expensive brushes like MAC. I have a few of her brushes and they are pretty good. you can also go to ulta and get some brushes from japanesque or something like that. i hear that they are the same ones like MAC.

    I was buying MAC brushes until I heard of Sonia Kashuk brushes from Target.....They are very soft and the bristles DON'T fall out!!!! Go to MAC and feel their brushes then fell Sonia's brushes.......VERY GOOD FOR the PRICE!!!!!!

    Do you have a Target? Sonia Kashuk brushes are inexpensive and excellent quality.

    Buy paint brushes, they work best.

    i would recommend 'Jemma Kidd' make-up brushes. they start at £10 for blusher and cheaper for eye shadow and are really easy to use.
