Flawless makeup looks are created with potential makeup tools, I’ve reached a point that I only want to use the best, it doesn’t matter if its cheap, expensive, known, unknown, or what other bloggers are doing, I strive for perfection when it comes to my makeup and I couldn’t achieve all these pretty looks if it wasn’t for these babies I am about to mention. I am extremely picky when it comes to cosmetics, it was really hard selecting 10 brushes I love the most because I have over a hundred but it all resumes in: Sigma, Real Techniques and Elf. I use brushes from other brands but my top 10 are from these three. I don’t want you guys to make the same mistakes I did, buy expensive brushes at MAC one by one, it was the only brand I knew back then. Wanna an update on your collection? Looking for good brushes? Heard about one of these three brands but still unsure ’bout buying it or nah? You’re at the right place, at the right time.
1. Elf Studio Powder Brush - This is the BEST makeup brush I have ever tried, I use it mostly as a powder brush, but you can also use for foundation, it came on a set when I first bought it, 4 years ago I get, and then I repurchased it individually because I found my self a little obsessed about it, soft, easy to use, and doesn’t shed. Best thing… is only $3.
2. Sigma Large Angled Contour F40 - Sigma is my #1 favorite brand when it comes to brushes, I’ve been suggesting it to my friends, clients, and everybody who asks me about makeup brushes, but… have you heard about the sigma F40? This angled brush is perfectly designed to contour the cheekbones but I use it to apply my blush, I can’t apply my blushes with anything else. Its rounded edges make the application so perfect, the softness blends the lines evenly, this is definitely a must . Price Tag $22.
3. Sigma Tapered Blending E35 – Favorite blending brush. Use to apply color on the crease and blend. Doesn’t shed, is firm, long, white and soft bristles. Perfect. $16
4. Sigma Flat Definer E15 - Used mostly to apply eyeshadows on your lower lashes, make defined and sharps winged eyelines, but I love to sharpen my eyebrows with it.This is my eyebrow tool for over a year now and I haven’t regret so far. Cost: $14.
5. Sigma Large Shader E60 - What about this one? Well… lids! When I am working on my leads, actually on every part of my face I like the product evenly spread, no gaps, no lines, thats all, and this brush does it perfectly. It is large, making the application quick, it is firm, picks up the product really good without falling out too much, beautiful coverage and you can apply most of the eye products with it (creams, primes, eyeshadow bases, wyeshadows, glitters and so on). Cost? $16.
6. Real Techniques Buffing Brush – Thuis brush could actually be my number one, but, well, so many options and I got lost, but this is definitely my number one when it comes to foundation brushes, the application is flawless. I have this for 3 years, maybe 4 and it feels like brand new every time I wash it out. This is the good thing about RT brushes, they are really easy to maintain. From the RT Core Collection ($18).
7. Real Techniques Contour Brush – To be honest I have plenty of contour brushes, like for real, PLENTY. I think I contour with every single brush that appears on my face, including brushes that I mentioned above. But this one is my fav. As I said on #6 RT brushes I really easy to maintain, I have this for 3-4 years I haven’t experience any breaks, shedding, or any sort of damage on the brush. Its bristles are firm, yet light and soft. Can also be used to apply highlighters and works really well with liquids, powders and creams. Also from the Core Collection, which means its costs $18 overall.
8. RT Deluxe Crease Brush – Hmmm.. It was supposed to be a crease brush, but Im not good on following rules so I decided to use with almost everything (applying concealer, apply eyeshadows on the lids, on the crease, contour my nose, contour my cheek bones, blend, highlight brow bone etc etc) I think I love it because of that, I do a lot of stuff with it. Does any one out there has a do it all brush? I have some too. From the RT Starter Kit, $18.
9. RT Powder Brush – With only $10, you can have the best brush you will ever ask for. When I first purchased it I found it too big, but when I got used to it i fell in love with big brushes, They are really easy to apply products and are the best thing to use on lazy days, quick application and even coverage.
10. Sigma Tapered blending E40 - Alright, last one! This sigma bestseller is the obviously the last but not the least. I’ve learn to do make up with this brush, this is another do it all brush, it is the perfect blender, I mean, words aren’t enough to explain what I feel about it. It blends everything, concealers, highlights, loose powders, eyeshadows, it does an excellent job on the eyes and also on the face. I also like to use it to swipe back and forth, with no additional product on, just to blend and even the eyeshadow that is already in the eyes. This soft and fluffy brush cost $16, and are definitely worth the price.
