5 Favourite Brushes: Real Techniques, Still, Sigma, Sonia Kashuk, Crown Brush



 The majority of makeup and cosmetics require a brush for the best application and finish. It has to be soft, full, and durable especially when washing is required routinely. Here are my current favourites! 




1. Sonia Kashuk Tool No. 04 Synthetic Flat Top Multipurpose Brush ($15.99 on Target Online)
I use this to apply my foundations, tinted moisturizers, and BB creams. It has a beautiful handle that is contoured for comfortable hold and the packed bristles help to apply the creams evenly. I also like the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush for these products too.

2. Real Techniques Powder Brush ($11.99 on Nail Polish Canada)
I use this to apply my setting powders. The big brush head ensures that the powder is applied everywhere and the soft bristles glides over the face so comfortably. For a big brush the quality is excellent as none of the bristles have shed on me. A good selection of Real Techniques is available at Wal-Mart for easy access and affordable prices.


3. Sigma Beauty E60 Large Shader Brush* ($22.40 on Nail Polish Canada)
This brand has made its mark long ago in the realm of beauty but this was the first brush I've tried by them. It's wonderful! It's larger size helps make applying eyeshadow super easy, especially if I'm being simple with one wash of colour. I'm definitely getting other brushes by them, and Nail Polish Canada's website has a variety available to order!

4. Still Spa Essentials 009 Smudger ($2.50 at Wal-Mart)
This brush was less than $3 but still does a fantastic job with my concealer application, whether it's under my eyes or on spots. Once again it's densely packed and soft, making the concealer application very accurate and concise. For someone who's just starting out with makeup and brushes, this brand would be a good start! Other face and eye brushes are available in the line at Wal-Mart.

5. Crown C433 Pro Blending Fluff Brush
I purchased this brush when I attended IMATS Toronto several years ago so I'm not too familiar as to where you can purchase this (if you know then comment down below!). The brand is also one that specializes in cosmetic brushes so quality and cost are awesome. I use this brush to help blend the eyeshadow so that no harsh lines are seen on the lids and it's very easy to tell when it needs a cleaning with the cream coloured bristles haha.

What are some of your other brush recommendations?
