Hi Loves,

I thought I’d share with you what my favorite makeup brushes are to use on set while working and personally. I created a video to go with this blog post.

Sigma Beauty Brush Cup Holder – I like to store my personal makeup brushes in these cups and place them on my bathroom counter. They are also great for travel to keep your brushes protected.

Favorite Makeup Brushes For The Eyes

MAC 217 Blending Brush – Oval shaped brush for power or cream. I like to use this brush for applying eyeshadow in the crease.
MAC 224 Tapered Blending Brush – Dome shaped brush to blend out eyeshadows so there are no harsh edges.
MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush – Shader brush to build and press powder on to the lid.
MAC 242 Shader Brush – This brush is great to apply concealer and carve out eyebrows.
MAC 219 Pencil Brush – I use this pencil brush to smoke out the under eye with eyeshadow or eye pencil.
Sigma Small Tapered E45 Brush – To blend out eyeshadow even more than the MAC 219.
MAC 263 Small Angle Brush or MAC 266 – I like to use this brush to easily apply gel liner.
Sigma Small Angle E65 – I use this brush personally to apply gel liner.
MAC 205 Mascara Fan Brush – Fan shaped brush to apply mascara from root to tip. Also paint the top of the lashes for blacker lashes.
