In this post I am going to be talking about my favourite makeup brushes that I use on a regular basis and what I use them for.. I have so many makeup brushes but these are the ones I recommend - you can use makeup brushes how ever you want it doesn't matter what they are marketed for.. No shame in using your hands either they are free!
- There are two different ways that I like to apply my foundation. One way is with a Beauty Blender sponge. The way that I use this is I make sure that it is moist (I know I said that word) by running it under water then squeezing out all the excess water. I will then bounce the sponge all over my face. I think the Beauty Blender does give one of the most flawless finishes to the skin but I do have a couple of other brushes that I use in rotation.
- Sigma Flat Kabuki F80 - This is a brush that is flat on the top that I use in circular motions to apply foundation to my skin. I find the brush doesn't eat a lot of product like the Beauty Blender does so I get a more full coverage finish.
- Zoeva 102 Silk finish Brush - This brush is pretty similar to the one from Sigma except this brush is more rounded and maybe slightly softer.
Beauty Blender - £16.00 from beautybay.com
Sigma F80 - £20.50 from beautybay.com
Zoeva 102 - £13.00 from beautybay.com
- With concealer I am most likely to use a Beauty Blender again or my fingers.
- E.L.F studio blush brush - I love using this brush to pack loose powder underneath my eyes, I find that the shape and size of the brush makes it perfect for the eye area.
- E.L.F studio powder brush - This is a flat topped brush that is great for picking up powder products and applying them to the face. I like to pat the product in using this brush rather than rubbing.
E.l.f blush brush - £4.50 from eyeslipsface.co.uk
E.l.f powder brush £5.00 from eyeslipsface.co.uk
- Morphe M528 - This brush is pointed and is great for applying powder contour because you can get it in the right place but because it's fluffy it also makes it easier to blend everything.
- E.L.F studio small stipple brush - I love using this brush to apply cream contour because it is small and it is duo fibre it means that it works well with liquids and creams.
Morphe M528 - £11.50 from beautybay.com
E.l.f small stipple brush - £4.50 from eyeslipsface.co.uk
- E.L.F studio small stipple brush - I have another one of these brushes because I also love to use it to apply cream highlighter products. I will pick up some highlighter and dab into my skin using this brush.
- Morphe M510 - This brush is marketed as an eye brush but I love to use it to apply powder highlight. The brush is the perfect size for dusting highlighter on the cheek bones and it also picks up a decent amount of product and makes everything easy to blend. One of my absolute favourite brushes!

I've tried to narrow this down because I use so many eye brushes; but these are my must haves.
- Sedona Lace 863 - This is a large, fluffy tapered blending brush and it is great for blending out eyeshadows in the crease.
- Coastal Scents fluff brush - This is a fluffy brush which is great for blending eyeshadows in the crease - it is smaller than the brush from Sedona Lace making it slightly more precise.
- Sigma E55 - This brush is great for packing eyeshadow on the lid because it is short and dense.
- Sigma E30 - This brush is small and dense and I like to use it for precise eyeshadow application in the crease or blending eyeshadow underneath the lower lash line.
Sedona Lace 863 - $6.98 (on sale usually; $13.95) from sedonalace.com
Coastal Scents fluff brush - £6.95 from amazon.co.uk
Sigma E55 - £13.00 from beautybay.com
Sigma E30 - £14.50 from beautybay.com
