If you can, try and invest a little more into your tools, as good brushes will last you a long time. A quick survey around Byrdie HQ revealed that there were brushes in team members' kits that were 15 years old and still going strong. Just remember to wash them regularly and store them either upright in a pot (we favour old Diptyque candle jars) or in the cases they come in so that the bristles are always laying flat.
