As promised last week, a little bit later tonight than planned, my first part of my new Top 5 Series. Today I will be talking brushes! I have picked my 5 favourite brushes from my collection, 4 out of five are face brushes but I don't wear eye colour too much so don't judge!
1) Sigma F50 Duo Fibre Brush
The best and only stippling brush I will ever use. It holds liquid and gel foundations so well and gives such a great 'air brushed' finish that can not be created using a normal foundation brush! This brush cleans up so quickly and easily too which is a bonus when you need to deep clean, no staining to the white part at all!
2) ELF Powder Brush
This isn't what I would typically class as a standard powder brush, more of a flat topped powder brush because, well, it has a flat top (clever Char!) After I have done my foundation I use this brush to apply a setting power. This is a great brush to use because you can buff the powder in a circular motion, the brush is so sturdy that it can also blend in any foundation that hasn't been blended so far.
3) ELF Eyeshadow Brush
This brush is from ELF's £1.50 line and for a brush that cheap it works really well! It really packs on the colour no matter what products you use so you don't have to keep applying numerous times to get a nice colour payback. It's a really soft brush as well which, at first, I didn't really expect from a brush this cheap. It's a bargain!
4) Sigma F30 Large Powder Brush
I love this brush! I use this to apply a shine control powder. The brush is so huge and fluffy it gives a really light coverage so I don't feel like I've packed on the powder and it never leaves my make up looking cakey. I really recommend that everyone owns a large powder brush, as opposed to the smaller powder brush.
5) Sigma F40 Large Angled Contour Brush
This is a perfectly shaped brush. The slight angle to it means it gives the perfect shape when applying blush. The brush takes product well and only required two strokes to apply properly. One downside is the white colour does stain a bit from multiple use, still I can live with that!
I hope you enjoyed this first part of the Top 5 Series!
Don't forget my New Year's Giveaway finishes on the 17th January so still plenty of time to ENTER!
