Hey babes! A very important part of my makeup stash has to be my brushes, without them I would be nowhere! I have a huge variety of different brands and I love trying new things. Most of my brushes are Real Techniques, Sigma, Zoeva or Boozyshop brushes but you’ll see a few different brands appear. I’m showing you my brushes in small categories but I find it very difficult to sort them, because I use my brushes so many different ways and for different purposes!
The first pot has 3 parts, foundation brushes, cheek brushes and smaller face brushes for highlight and concealer. For every part, I’ll show you my favorite brushes!
My two favorite foundation brushes are very similar, the Sigma F80 and the Zoeva 104 Buffer. These two are basically the only brushes I use to apply my foundation. When I don’t use these, I use a Beauty Blender. These apply foundation perfectly but are such a hassle to clean, because they’re so dense!
My go to blush brush is the Real Techniques Blush Brush, it’s so soft and blends like a dream. The Morphe M556 is a great multifunctional brush, especially for blending everything together and the Sigma Large Angled Contour F40 is amazing for a more sculpted blush or contour.
My favorite highlight brush by far is the Sigma Tapered Highlighter F35, it’s super precise but it blends your highlight as well. I also love the RT Setting Brush for matte highlight powder underneath my eyes. And the RT Contour Brush is great for a sharp contour or even setting a cream contour with powder.
The next pot I have are all powder brushes, I have the most of these because it’s what I use literally every day.
The ones I use most are the Real Techniques Powder Brush, the Zoeva 106 Powder Brush and the Boozyshop B16 Powder Brush. These are all very similar but have different sizes, I switch between them constantly and use them to blend out bronzer as well!
I have a lot of eyeshadow brushes but most of them are very cheap ones from Amazon I don’t use very often, but they come in handy sometimes. This pot also contains eyebrow brushes.
My best eyebrow brushes are the Zoeva Brow Line 322, it’s quite thick and great for filling in your brows, another great one is the Anastasia Beverly Hills 12, for creams and pomades. Anastasia also has a great Eyeliner Brush (15).
Close is the makeup brand from Planet Parfum, their brushes are great, I have one blending brush that I got in a beauty box. Also Ici Paris makes brushes for their BE Brand, they’re not as high quality but the n°10 brush is a great shape for more detailed eyeshadow application. The RT Shading Brush is an amazing beginner’s brush, I have two and I recommend them to everyone, it’s very multifunctional.
My favorite brand is Sigma, but sadly it’s also an expensive brand. These three are eyeshadow brushes I use all the time. The Tapered Blending E40 Brush is an amazing crease brush, the Pencil E30 Brush is the best one for under eye shading and I use the Medium Angled Shading E70 Brush mostly for defining my outer corner.
Boozyshop makes their own brushes as well and they are very affordable, the quality is amazing and I often confuse them with Sigma brushes, the biggest quality difference is how long they last, Boozyshop brushes lose more hair when I wash them. My favorite ones are the Blending A01 Brush, the Large Shadow A07 Brush and the Eye Shading E70 Brush. They’re all very multifunctional brushes that come in handy for a lot of looks.
I also have my Boozyshop Oval Brushes in a separate cardboard drawer, I reviewed them in this post.
I keep my lip brushes in my drawer alongside my lip primers and pencils.
