My top 5 Make-up brushes!

2014-08-01 19.15.30

Now I don’t know about you but back in the day I didn’t really pay attention to what kind of brush I used or how soft they were! But now the more I learn the more I care. So I have found my top 5 brushes that I cannot go without and will probably repurchased once I wear them out.

Sigma – F80 Flat Kabuki brush

2014-07-29 20.22.13

Now this is a new find for me. I mean everyone knows about Sigma brushes and their amazing quality but a little hard to get a hold of in the UK. Now I spotted this great find at the IMATS UK in May and snapped it up straight away. The reviews were not wrong. This brush is amazing, the quality alone is great. But it’s the perfect flat kabuki to apply my foundation/tinted moisturiser on seamlessly! Love Love Love!

Sigma – F25 Tapered Face brush

2014-07-29 20.16.30

 

I don’t about you but I couldn’t find a decent powder brush anywhere! None were light enough to glide powder on top of my concealer without moving the concealer around. Again purchased at the IMATS, I am in love with this brush. It is SUPERSOFT! It’s tapered so works great to get right into the inner corner area to set and its glides like a beauty.

MAC – 217

2014-07-29 20.21.39

 

I’m sure everyone has heard of this brush for eyes. It is a great blender brush, lets you work quickly. Great for applying shadow on the lids, its just a great all rounder. My only negative point is the brush feels a bit scratchy on my skin but its still the best ive found so far. (if you have any better recommendations please let me know and I will investigate!)

Real Techniques – Blush Brush

2014-07-29 20.15.49

Real Techniques is a great brand overall. They create great brushes that are affordable and Nick and Sam (Pixiwoo) create some great tutorials to help you maximise the benefit of the brushes. This blush brush is perfect for your powder blushes and even your bronzer. You can use the tip to do your blush and then use the benefit of the large brush if you want an overall bronzed look! Great multitasking brush!

Beauty Blender – Makeup Sponge

2014-07-29 20.21.24

Okay okay I know the last one is technically not a brush but the sponge has great versatility. Sometimes I will use this to apply my foundation or concealer. But recently my method (Idea from Vivanna Does Makeup) is to spray a setting spray on the Beauty Blender after I have finished my makeup and gently dabbing over my concealer to set it. This method is amazing. That concealer does not budge for days! I have a real problem with my concealer creasing (I have fine lines under my eyes) and this has been so helpful so thank you to Beauty Blender and Anna for this one!

 

I would love to know what your favourite brushes to use are! And if you can find a dupe for MAC 217!

Until next time..

  1. I have super cresy under eyes and eye lids and I’m so going to try your method to prevent creasyness. Thanks for that lovely piece of advice 🙂 x
