My Most Used Makeup Brushes – TOP 5

As a makeup artist I’ve collected many brushes over the years….like A LOT! I don’t know how many times I’ve heard my friends or clients ask “why do you need so many?” Well, to that I have 2 answers…1. I just love collecting makeup and makeup tools (little bit addicted…lets be honest), and 2. as a makeup artist I need to have back ups and options, if I’m doing a big bridal party job I cant be constantly stopping to clean every brush so I have multiples to keep things moving.

However, do I use a thousand different brushes to do my makeup everyday? NO WAY! Ain’t nobody got time for that!!

So, may I present to you…my top 5!


1. Foundation goes on with the Sigma Beauty F84 – Angled Kabuki ( This brush is very soft and dense and buffs in liquid foundation flawlessly. There’s a couple of variations available (a flat top, a round top, etc. but I like this one).

2. I powder my face with the Powder Brush from the Arbonne Cosmetic Brush Set (available through an Arbonne Independent Consultant, but can be viewed at These brushes are literally the softest I have ever felt! I’m in love!

3. I multitask with the Blush Brush from the Arbonne Cosmetic Brush Set and apply my contour, blush and highlight with the same brush. Again, I don’t have time for three different brushes here and this one can do it all.

4. I don’t always wear eye shadow on a daily basis, but if I do I use the MAC 217 Blending Brush ( Its the perfect size and shape for a quick wash of colour or for blending depth into the crease.

5. And lastly, my favourite angled brush of all time which I use for gel liner and/or cream brow products is the Napoleon Perdis g5 Angled Brush (

So, folks, there you have my mostly used (TOP 5) makeup brushes. What are your favourites?
