My top 3 makeup brushes

Without my makeup brushes where would I be? I'd still be wearing makeup but there's no doubt about the fact it would be nowhere near as nicely applied. I've always been a brushes over sponges type of girl and love each of my makeup brushes for the different jobs each one does. Admittedly though there are three brushes which stand out to me as my favourites and are the ones I couldn't live without, so today I thought I'd share them with you.


Real techniques expert face brush:
This has been my go to brush for applying foundation for as long as I can remember, it's the brush I used when I first started getting in to makeup and I've never changed it because its never let me down. It's a very dense brush which means it packs my foundation on to my face really well giving me a full coverage look. I've always liked full coverage from my foundation and this brush really helps that because it really packs the product on to your skin giving you a flawless base. I also find it isn't streaky at all and doesn't leave brush stroke in my foundation. I've had the brush for years and it's still in as good condition as it was the day I got it.


Real techniques blush brush:
Another real techniques brush that I've had right from the early days that I'm in love with is my blush brush. It's perfect for blush as it fits right on the apples of my cheeks when I smile and I also love it for applying bronzer. I dip it in to the Soap and glory solar powder bronzer and its the perfect size to fit under my cheek bones to bronze them up a little bit. It's also incredibly soft and just like the expert face brush, shows no sign of wear and tear.


Sigma E25 blending brush:
The sigma E25 blending brush is essentially a cheaper version of the extremely hyped Mac 217 brush. It's incredibly soft and works amazingly for blending out shadows in the crease. I use it everyday that I'm wearing eyeshadow to first of all apply my crease shade and then to blend the whole look together as it does a perfect job. I haven't had this brush as long as I've had my real techniques ones but I have had it quite a while and its still in mint condition. It also looks incredibly sleek and professional which I really like.


I have lots of makeup brushes in my collection but these three are just my favourite ones that I could be without. I'd love to know your favourite makeup brush, thanks for reading.

  2. Sigma brushes are absolutely incredible. I've never used Real Techniques brushes before, but I've heard such great things. Of what I understand they're not too bad in price either. Great post, Kate!

  4. I adore real techniques brushes, they are by far the best I have tried. The stigma one looks an excellent dupe for the 217 though x
