How are you doing. Hope you are all well.
Makeup brushes are so important for application to create a flawless face so I want to show you brushes that I love and use on a daily basis.
I have a quite nice collection of them and I have been using them for many years and I think that I can advise which are really good and worth buying.
Description: Ultra firm and broad for application and blending of cream or liquid foundation.
I use this brush when applying my liquid or cream foundation, and I also use this to buff and blend my concealer in. It really makes my makeup look smooth.
The bristles are dense and super soft, but still sturdy enough for full control of the application.
SIGMA FLAT KABUKI F80
Description: The F80 Flat Kabuki™ features a flat top brush head with very soft and dense fibers. Made with exclusive Sigmax® fibers, this brush provides a flawless, high definition finish with liquid or cream foundation without any absorption of product.
This is the softest brush I have ever felt and it applies so smooth. It gives you flawless coverage, and the bristles are super soft, so even if you’re buffing in the makeup, it doesn’t scratch at your face and doesn’t leave any strokes. Its gives an airbrush effect, love it.
LARGE POWDER BRUSH F30 SIGMA
Description: The F30 Large Powder features a large, round fluffy brush head used for a diffused application of powder products all over the face. This multi-functional brush is perfect for seamless blending and finishing your makeup look.
This is a great large and soft rounded brush brush for applying powder. Very big, domed and fluffy. It applies my powder super quickly since it’s so big. I really like it for the price as well. I haven’t had any problems with shedding.
REAL TECHNIQUES BUFFING BRUSH
Description: ideal for full coverage application of powder and mineral foundation
I have been using this brush almost daily for the past year and it’s still as good as the day I bought it. It is good at blending out foundation flawlessly but I like and only use it to set my makeup with powder. To my knowledge, this brush is only available with the whole “core collection”, which are also great brushes but not as commonly used as this one.
Such a high quality brush for the price. It is super soft to the touch and quite large multi-tasking brush.
I use it for a contour/bronzer brush and I’m very pleased with how it works. If you’re someone who just wants to get that “kissed by the sun” fresh look this is perfect brush for it.
I like the shape of it, which is rounded with a very slight tapered end so it gives a really lovely finish to the skin.
It’s also great powder brush, it disperses a light and even amount of powder, and with the tapered tip I can concentrate it more on my t-zone.
MAC 109 SMALL CONTOUR BRUSH

I love this brush it has so many uses. I use it for contouring, blush, powder, cream and liquid foundation.
This brush is excellent for contouring so whenever I need to contour, this brush is the FIRST brush I pick up all the time. It’s really gives the “airbrushed” look.
It is soft and subtle brush. Blends and smudges shades beautifully, especially when you are wanting to create a more enhanced evening/going out look.
The hairs are short,rounded and tapered at the end. It applies colour with precision and densely in to the crease of my eye and is excellent for creating a defined outer V.
This brush will also allow for an excellent “cut crease”,as well as a soft or a dramatic smoky eye.
MAC 217 BLENDING BRUSH
Description: For shading or blending of colour or creamy products. This brush has fine, densely packed fibers that are arranged in an oval shape.
This brush is an absolute must have in my collection. I already own 3 and seriously this brush is so great that you can create a full eye make up just with this brush.
This brush is perfect for applying highlighter beneath the brow bone, an all over shadow to the lid, a darker shadow to the outer corner of the eye, to add shadow to the crease,
or to blend the crease and highlight shadows together. So is so versatile that is my must have brush.
