My Most Used Makeup Brushes and Tools- Face Edition + $5 off coupon for Sigma!


Truth be told, I have a lot of makeup brushes. I could easily admit that I have way more than I would ever need. This may or may not look like a lot of brushes to you, but I really enjoy and use them frequently. These are the tools I use the most out of my collection. I don’t use each one every single time I apply makeup, but I find that no matter what other methods of application I try, I always go back to these. If you’re interested in checking any of the brushes out, be sure to click the name! I’ve also included a link at the end of the post that will get you $5 off if you want to try out any Sigma brushes or products!


Beauty Blender- If I had to throw all of my other tools away and only choose one, I’d choose the Beauty Blender every time. I have incredibly dry skin, so I’m always struggling to get my foundation to look smooth and even. It’s a constant struggle. I’ve found that even with daily exfoliation, the more I buff foundation into my skin, the cakier it can appear. Add concealer and powder to set it, and it looks ridiculous. The BB prevents all of that. It gives me a smooth, airbrushed-like finish and nothing ever appears cakey. I use this for both concealer and foundation. (Excuse the foundation stains on my Beauty Blender. It's well-loved!)


MAC 188- The tiny duo fibre brush is one of my multipurpose brushes. I use it to blend out under-eye concealer, applying powder to my under-eye area, and even applying foundation when I wanted a fuller coverage. It’s not very heavy or dense, so it’s still great for my skin type.


Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush- This brush is intended for applying eye shadow, but I use it for concealing blemishes. It’s tapered, so the point of it is great for gently applying product onto the blemish and virtually erasing it.


Sigma F50 Duo Fibre Brush- I love to use this as my powder brush. It lightly sets my foundation without applying too much powder.


Real Techniques Stippling Brush- I use this brush to apply and blend a liquid or powder highlight.


Sigma F40 Large Angled Contour Brush-I love this brush for contouring with powder bronzer and applying blush. It’s the perfect shape for contouring in the hollows of your cheeks.


As you can see, I love Sigma Brushes. If you're interested in purchasing a set or any individual brushes, you can save $5 on your order by clicking here!
