My Face in Brushes

i rounded up the brushes that i use on an every day basis. they are the brushes that i swear by and get me out the door at an ungodly hour to get to work.

Sigma F86 Tapered Kabuki- i use this brush to blend out my concealer. it blends it out beautifully and removes any excess product. even though it is a rather larger brush for such a small area, the tapered end fits nicely under the eye.

Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki- this brush is perfect for blending out liquid foundation. it distributes the foundation evenly and makes your skin appear even and flawless.

Sigma F82 Rounded Kabuki- the perfect brush to blend out mouse like foundations such as Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse. it doesn't steal product from you and just leaves your skin looking airbrushed.

Sigma F84 Angled Kabuki- i actually use this brush to apply highlighter on my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose. because of its rounded and angled shape, the brush tips gather the fine sheen of your highlighter and place it right on top of your skin beautifully. seriously glowing from within never happened so quickly.

e.l.f. Studio Angled Blush Brush- for contouring my cheekbones i pick up this soft and dense brush. works great for defining this area.

MAC Blush Brush 116- because this brush is rather small, it works well to keep my blush where it belongs during application, on my cheeks. i have tried other bigger blush brushes and i will find a way to apply blush all the way to my concealer. not cute. 

e.l.f. Studio Stipple Brush- i use this to blend out my bronzer and my blush. no makeup lines here!

here is a fun article by Alight Fashion Blog entitled Brushology: A Guide to Makeup Brushes that you guys may like. it gives a brief description of each brush and what they are made for. happy reading!


  1. Great roundup! I can't live without the Sigma F80. x

    1. Thanks! Sigma brushes seem better to me than MAC. Try e.l.f. You can't beat the price and are a great quality.
