Hey Everyone!

When you’re first starting out with make-up, I know how hard it is to jump from using a make-up sponge to getting a brush to call your own. You’re not sure if you should but it looks like everyone around you has loads of make-up brushes and you’re not sure what the difference is between using a sponge vs a brush. Not to fret though, here’s my guide on the four ways I usually apply my foundation and the pros and cons of using sponges vs. brushes.

1. Streak and Blend

I know, you’re probably thinking – Roseanne, streaking? I thought you’re supposed to do the opposite of that! Well, you are except this time we’re blending all the streaks out with a sponge later. I do this with almost all my clients. It creates the most natural finish with great coverage. It doesn’t look cakey because you’re essentially controlling the amount of foundation you apply. Simply use a concealer brush to apply the foundation in streaks onto the face, spaced out of course. Then, take a wedge sponge and blend the foundation so that everything becomes flawless. This is great for people with already really good skin but want to look just a little bit more flawless. I do this with fashion models because they’re usually like 16 years old and still have what I call “baby skin”.

Hey Everyone!

I have to admit, a stippling brush looks a bit odd. It’s a bunch of animal hair bristles and poking through that bush is a bunch of taller white synthetic bristles. But this brush is basically a miracle worker because there are just so many ways to use them! It’s one of my first face brushes and it’s one of my favourites because you can basically use one brush to do your whole face. It’s not totally suggested because you don’t want to mix your liquid foundation with your powder blush but at least it’s the thought that counts.

Yet, too many people complain that this baby streaks during application but little do they know that they’re just not using it properly! That’s what I’m here for. Today I’ll be showing you all you need to know about Stippling brushes – including how to use them, what they’re best for and giving a little review of the few ones that I own. There are four things that a stippling brush can do for you – it’s great for liquid foundation, powder, blush and bronzer. We’ll see how.

Hey Everyone,

A while back ago, Sigma sent me a bunch of their brushes to try out. I wanted to do a review like you wanted me to but I didn’t know what to say about them really. I grew up with M.A.C brushes and I did find some glitches to them but for the price you’re paying, it made them pretty obsolete. I didn’t want to compare it to M.A.C but that was all I had to compare them to. I decided not to do a review until I had more to say than just saying that they did the job aside from a few stray hairs. This was my story until I tried their synthetic range and boy was I up for a surprise. Today I’ll be doing a review of the Sigma F82 Round Top Kabuki, a pretty popular Sigma brush and something that has made it to my must-have list.
