When I started out with makeup, I had a vague understanding of how useful makeup brushes can be. With time and experience, I have come to know the significance of makeup brushes. Makeup application is a lot easier with the right kind of makeup brushes.
This post is going to focus just on Sigma brushes. You can’t deny the fact that Sigma is affordable (compared to other high-end alternatives) and the quality is impressive. My absolute favorite Sigma brushes would be the ones below. I simply cannot imagine going back to applying makeup without them.
|F80 – Flat Top Kabuki|
Should I even begin praising it? This brush is a life saver and probably the best brush in my life. The Sigma Flat Top Kabuki makes my foundation application so much better. I use it to blend and buff my foundation for a natural, even and flawless look. You can also apply your foundation with it. I also like applying my compact powder foundation on top of my liquid foundation to set my makeup with it. A lot of my mates keep asking me how I achieve this flawless face. Well friends, this brush is IT! With just spending $16.00, you can change your life.
|F10 – Powder/Blush|
F10 is ideal for applying blush. Since it’s flat and fluffy, I think it makes a good brush for highlighting and contouring too. Just press the bristles between your fingers to make it more flat and begin to highlight/contour. This versatile brush can be yours for the same price as F80.
|E55 – Eye shading|
Whatever my eye makeup looks like today is because of this brush and E40. The eye shading brush is amazing at applying pressed or loose eye shadow on the lid. The flat nature of this brush also allows applying shadow on the crease. The trick is how you use your hand to apply. To apply the color on the lid, place the brush 45 degrees to your lid and when you apply, you’re actually using one face of the brush. You can dip the other face into a second color too. To apply shadow to your crease, place the brush perpendicular to your crease area and apply (here you’re working with just the tip of the brush). For just $9, this brush could be yours.
|E40 - Tapered Blending|
With this brush, I get that blended effect I was always looking for. Like I said before, with E40 and E55, you can take your eye makeup to the next level. Love this brush! You can get this for $11.
|L05 – Lip|
This brush is amazing! I always had trouble applying lip color with a brush but ever since this came into my world, all that has changed. I love applying my Sleek makeUP pout paints and OCC lip tars with it. I also apply my NYX round lipsticks with it since they’re too soft and fragile (and I fear it will break or bend if I apply directly to my lips). $9 wouldn’t hurt your pocket I suppose.
With just these five brushes, you can create a whole makeup look. Of course you need more brushes like a concealer brush but imagine being in a situation (traveling maybe) where you just have to take 5 brushes with you, these will do!
