For me, beauty tools are a make or break when it comes to the overall end result of your makeup. I've tried a ton of brushes out over the years, and have definitely found some ride or dies that consistently leave a pretty canvas. I'm so excited to be sharing my favorites with you all, and can't wait for you guys to be on your way to a flawless face thanks to some must-have tools.
SIGMA F80 Flat Kabuki
This is the ONLY foundation brush I will use. I generally really love sponges, but this blends like a dream and gets the job done in lightening fast time.
SIGMA F37 Spotlight Duster
I CANNOT live without this brush! I like using this for applying the Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder. It works perfectly for brushing over the under eye and adding a light shimmer or glow. If you want to see how I use this brush in action, then check out my Get Ready With Me video here.
REAL TECHNIQUES BLUSH BRUSH
My tride and true blush brush! I love how fluffy it is, and love how it applies the product.
Tarte Brush Sets
I say this generally because unfortunately their brushes don't have names listed on them. I have the mermaid set and the pink sparkle set and use them both regularly! My personal favorites are the fluffier ones. They're awesome for powders, bronzers and blush!
SIGMA E06 WINGED LINER BRUSH
An absolute must for applying gel liner! It is super precise and will help you create that perfect little wing.
SIGMA PENCIL BRUSH + SMUDGE BRUSH
These are my two inner corner highlight go-to's!
ECO TOOLS FLUFFY BRUSH
I can't find the exact one, but I use their large fluffy brush to set my face with translucent powder, and help dust away any excess.
NOSE CONTOUR BRUSH
So sadly, the brush I use by IT Cosmetics to contour my nose doesn't seem to be available anymore. I've shared two brushes below that look absolutely identical though, with one being a save option and the other a splurge.
Anastasia Beverly Hills A23 Pro Brush
I LOVE using this for highlight - it lets you apply the softest glow or mega intense shimmer.
SIGMA E25 BLENDING BRUSH
My go-to outer corner brush to soften, blend or deepen shades.
SIGMA E40 TAPERED BLENDING BRUSH
Perfect for blending transition shades in the crease and buffing out any harsh lines.
SIGMA E45 SMALL TAPERED BLENDING BRUSH
This brush is awesome for blending crease colors whether you want to soften or deepen your look.
