Sigma brushes. When I hear those words I think affordable, amazing makeup brushes and the latest two brushes I've tried live up to that reputation. Keep reading to find out how I use these brushes and my thoughts on them.
In general, I find Sigma brushes to be very well made and classic looking with the black handles and silver ferrule. I always make sure to put a coat of clear nail polish over the logo and brush number and name so they last for a very long time.
So let's breakdown the two latest additions to my makeup brush collection:
E20 Short Shader ($15.99) - The E20 is a flat head brush with very short bristles. The bristles are soft yet firm for very precise detail work. I use this brush to either apply eyeshadow as eyeliner on my top and bottom lashes or to smudge out eyeliner. I would say this is a great brush to have even if you are just starting out with makeup.
E25 Blending ($15.99) - The E25 brush intrigued me with its slightly flat bristles. Typically blending brushes are fluffy and domed shaped but not this one. I find this is great for a very controlled blend - great for the crease, blending out a smoky eye that extends past the crease or softly blending out my liner. You can also easily use this brush to apply shadow onto the entire lid. This is a very versatile brush once you start playing around with it.
Both of these brushes are getting a ton of use during my day-to-day makeup application and I highly recommend that you check them out.
