I thought i would do this post because i think not knowing where to start with choosing makeup brushes can be pretty intimidating as THERE ARE SO MANY! The first thing you need to know is you dont need 1000 brushes,only a few! I use alot of mine for different uses,you really just have to have a play around with them to see what works for you. I buy all of my brushes from "Sigma Beauty" and i love them. The prices are so reasonable and they are such beautiful quality. With most of my brushes i actually bought different packs from sigma so they take the guess work out for you.
This is the one kit that i would suggest above all others as it has everything you need! This is called the Essential kit in "Make me classy" and it retails for $109
This is the next kit i would suggest if you do alot of eye makeup. Its called performance eyes kit and retails for $55
Ok i got a little off subject there but i think this is a really handy thing to know! So i will be showing you 6 of my fave eye brushes (i will do a face one very soon) and what i use them for i hope you get something out of this,you dont need to go with this brand,other companies do brushes like this too :)
SIGMA SMALL EYE SHADOW BRUSH-E55
This is for application of color. Place color across the whole lid for an even and strong application of product,it also has natural hair in the brush.It is very dense as well so this prevents fall out,and more intense colour.
This and the tapered blending brush are my all time fave! You can use this for so many things!You can use it to Soften pencil liners along the top and bottom lash lines, add shadow to line the eyes, or use to highlight inner corner of eyes. I mainly use this for when i do smokey eyes,or to do a winged look
This has a soft and precise flat head, you can apply color onto small areas of the eye such as the outer eyelid. Also use to smudge the lower or top lash line which is where i normally use it and it works perfect for that "smudgey" effect!
Sorry this is a little hard to see as it has white bristles! I honestly use this brush every single time i do my eye make up i LOVE it! It blends perfectly! Using just the tip of the brush to pick up color, apply product directly onto the crease and sweep through. Effect is blended, but defined.
With this brush you can apply highlighting shades onto the brow bone or upper cheekbone for a soft and blended finish or also what i mainly use mine bor is a buffer around the eyes! If you buff with this brush around your eye area it will clean up any fall out you may have,or blend lines in,its like an eraser for eye makeup!
MEDIUM ANGLE SHADING BRUSH-E70
Use for brow highlighting or to blend the crease or for a softer look on a smokey eye on the outer corner it works really well also to put eye shadow on the inner corner of the eye
I hope this was helpful to you guys thanks for stopping by!
