While some people prefer paddle brushes such as the e.l.f Studio Foundation Brush or the Sigma F60, the Rolls-Royce of foundation brushes (in our humble opinion) is the Sigma F80 Kabuki. This brush will blend your foundation to perfection, you’ll never go back to applying with your fingers!

The e.l.f Studio brush has a solid flat top surface like the Sigma F80, but it’s a bit bigger and softer – perfect for applying powder. We also love the Real Techniques powder brush and the e.l.f kabuki face brush.


They say applying your concealer under your eyes is best done gently using your ring finger, because of how sensitive your under eye area is. For spot concealing and blending concealer there are some great brush options.

We love the Sigma P84 Angled Precision brush, these are perfect for blending as they are soft but still dense enough to blend a liquid product. Another great option is a flat concealer brush such as the e.l.f studio concealer brush.



There are a whole range of different brushes to apply eyeshadow with, sometimes it can get a little overwhelming. If you’re new to the eyeshadow game, the first step is to throw out any little sponge applicators that you may have received inside a palette – they’re terrible!

Your next step is to invest in two types of brushes: A shader and a blender. The shader (sometimes called a “C” brush) is for applying eyeshadow to your lid. The blending brush is for softening the colour around the edges and blending colours together.



Well defined brows were huge in 2014 and this trend is continuing into 2015. To achieve the perfect brow, use a small angled brush to apply your product. Use a spoolie (looks like a mascara brush) to comb through product – this softens your look and makes your brows look more natural.

Our favourite brow brush is the BDB Brow stylist as it’s both awesome brushes in one. This brush works like a dream and makes the process of applying brow products so much faster.
