Foundation brush and application

I'm on a roll today! Two posts in one day? Production is my middle name. I wanted to talk about a tool that I use every day and a brand I am obsessed with. Recently, I made the switch from a compact powder to liquid foundation. I had been using MAC Studio Fix since 7th grade! Talk about loyalty. Well, I decided to switch it up so I bought Loreal True Macth Lumi liquid foundation. I like it some, but I have found I am more oily throughout the day.

Anyways, I wanted to really talk about how I apply it. I have been using a Sigma brush called the Flat Top Kabuki F80. It. Is. Wonderful. I use and love many of Sigma's brushes, but this one takes the cake!

 I start by putting two pumps of foundation on the back of my hand. I get about 1/3 of the foundation from my hand onto the brush and dab it on one cheek and half of my nose and chin. I take another 1/3 onto the brush and do the other cheek, the rest of my nose, and the rest of my chin. Then I take almost all of what is left on my hand (I leave a tiny bit) and dab it on my forehead. Then I go back over it and make small circles with the brush all over my face. This blends in the foundation all over and makes it look so smooth and seamless. I take the small bit I have left on my hand onto the brush and hit the troubles areas a second time. 

Having a good base for the rest of your makeup is so important, and this tool makes it easy and looks gorgeous!

  1. Would you say that for the price difference, that Sigma is very comparable to the MAC brushes? I looked them up and there is a good price difference in a lot of them. Plus Sigma has brushes in cool colors. ;-)

    1. Sigma is very good and (I hate to say it) but almost better than MAC because of the price difference. They are very well made and cheap!
