"Most people who never wore make-up before they were 16 (me: and I’m 20 now and still barely wear make up) don’t have these fancy brushes. Do you have any recommendations on where to buy them for a decent price?"
If you’re starting out with brushes and don’t want to buy anything fancy (actually the ones I used here are all cheap!), Coastal Scents is a good place to start. Their Pro Blending Fluff is $4.95 and the large angled brush is $1.95.
These are the 2 types that you can use to do most of your basic blending and lining/defining.
I actually buy a whole bunch of these so I always have some handy even if I’m laying some out to dry after washing!
@heyytherenadine: Thanks for suggesting eyeslipsface.com! Yes I heard good things about their shadow brushes as well, but haven’t checked them out myself yet.
