Most Used MakeUp Brushes

Besides makeup being my first true love/obsession my second love would definitely have to be makeup brushes. I personally don't like applying makeup such as foundation with my bare hands, I've tried to but just never liked the feeling of it. So brushes are a MUST have for when I'm applying makeup. I don't have a massive brush collection but it's decent. There are some brushes that I use more than others on a daily basis. The following brushes that I will be showing you down below are probably my favorite brushes that I always use no matter what I am doing with my makeup.

Top to bottom:
Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki F80 & Sigma Flat Angled Synthetic Kabuki F88: Both retail for $18 or you can get them in a set. I've had both brushes for a little bit over a year now and I've been in love with them ever since. Both brushes are AMAZING for applying liquid foundation, even though I do prefer the F80 a little bit more over the F88. They blend out & buff your foundation to a flawless finish. They're really soft and dense. I've never had them shed thus far. These two brushes are the only brushes I ever use to apply foundation both serve & give equal results. I never use your typical foundation brush, the F80 and F88 are my "holy grail" brushes to apply foundation.
Sigma F50 Duo Fibre: This brush retails for $20. I really like this brush for applying blush, it gives me a natural and blended out look to my cheeks. It picks up just enough product without making you look like a clown. 
E.L.F. Stippling Brush: Retails for $3. This stippling brush is way less dense than the sigma F50. I also use this brush for applying blush when I want a hint of color to my cheeks but not too noticeable. I've read some reviews on the elf website where people say that they use this brush for applying foundation, I've never tried doing that since I don't feel like it's dense enough for it to buff out my foundation.
E.L.F. Kabuki Face Brush: This a really inexpensive kabuki brush, retails for $6. Amazing quality, really soft & dense. I always use this kabuki brush to apply setting powder after I've applied foundation. I would really recommend this brush. And I've had it for almost two years and it's going strong for the price that it was. I've barely had any shedding from it. LOVE this brush.
Sigma Tapered Blending E35 ($12) & Sigma Blending E25 ($10): I absolutely LOVE both of these brushes. Both do as they say, they blend out eyeshadow but they are absolutely amazing if you have small eyes like I do. They get into your crease and blend out eyeshadow like no other. The E25 is also great for applying eyeshadow all over the lid, as you can see I have two of them a regular size and a travel size brush.
Sigma E05 Eye Liner ($10): Here I'm showing you a bright pink travel size version of it, I also have the regular size. This is my favorite brush for applying gel liner. It's so easy to use and apply gel liner, makes a great winged out look.

I know a lot of people LOVE the Real Technique brushes and trust me I plan on getting some of them SOON. Hope you enjoyed this post.

What are your favorite makeup brushes?? Tell me down below in a comment!!

  2. A girl that likes to bully me recently commented on a photo I uploaded of my Real Technique brushes saying how she doesn't own any make up brushes and girls 'paint their faces on'. She clearly doesn't understand the importance of brushes! I couldn't apply my makeup without mine!

    1. Some girls are just plain RUDE. I'm glad someone else sees the importance of brushes as I do! it just doesn't feel 'right' applying makeup with your hands like some people do.
