Hey Everyone!

I was requested to do a video on the brushes that I think would be an essential part of a brush kit, or collection. These aren’t a list of my Favourite Brushes as there are other brushes that I love that didn’t make this list. (I wil be making a Favourite Brushes video separately) This list is a list of brushes for every makeup function, one for each. As in, if I had to have one brush for each application, what brush would it be? All of the brushes listed are Sigma Brushes and this is because the majority of my collection is from Sigma. I would highly recommend them to anyone. They are inexpensive (yay!) and have helped me grow and learn through practice and experimentation. 

Face Brushes:

  • Gives a flawless makeup application. Quick and simple, it buffs and blends great. Features Sigmax HD filament, which means the bristles don’t absorb the product.

Concealer: Concealer - F75

  • This brush is synthetic, made from taklon, and it applies cream concealer like a dream. Slightly pointed tip allows for perfect and precise application of cream products in small and defined areas.

  • Large paddle-shaped brush with fluffy and rounded tip. The shape of this brush is great because it can buff, but it can also pat on the product. Great for helping it last longer.

  • The shape of this brush is great for applying product to the cheekbones and the contours of the cheeks.

 Contouring: Small Contour - F05

  • This brush has a dome tip and is great for contouring as it is dense. Works great to apply and blend.

  • This medium sized brush is the perfect size for applying blush to the cheeks. It has natural bristles and it’s fluffy, so it blends out really well.

  • This duo fibre brush is soft and gentle, and it works great for applying a delicate touch of highlight to the face.

Blending: Buffer - F45

  • This kabuki brush offers amazing blending abilities. You can literally use this anywhere on the face. To blend blush, bronzer, etc.

Eye Brushes:

Eye shadow: Large Shader - E60

  • This is unlike a lot of other eye shadow brushes out there. This one is more flat, which is perfect when patting on cream products, primers, pressed and even loose shadow.

  • This is my holy grail for applying eyeliner. I use it with gel liner and it always makes the perfect thickness, and it offers great control. Anyone who has trouble with liners, this brush is for you! You can even use it with your liquid liner!

  • There are a lot of blending brushes out there. But if I had to choose just one, I think this would be it. It has long bristles, and is fluffy, It offers great control and it makes blending effortless.

Eye Shading: Eye Shading - E55

  • This brush is soft yet dense and it sort of rounded at the tip. I use this brush mainly for blending the colour from the crease with the highlight colour (or the colour under the brows).

For Precise Work: Pencil - E30

  • I threw this one in for anyone who likes more creative looks that require a precise application with total control of the placement. This brush is idea for cut crease eye shadow looks or eye looks with a defined crease.

For Smudging: Short Shader - E20

  • This brush is ideal for smudging colours along the upper and lower lash lines. It is a short, extremely dense brush. It works great with pencil liners and creamy products. I use it all the time to smudge the liner on my lower lash line.
