My Favourite Make-up Brush

I was cleaning my brushes this morning and I found myself wondering if I had to pick a favourite brush what would it be.

The MAC 187 Duo Fibre brush wins hands down. Sure there are other brushes in my collection that are essentials and much more necessary than this one. But this really is my favourite, even if it’s not a staple.

This brush makes foundation application flawless. When used properly it can leave the skin looking airbrushed.

The brush is made from 2 different fibres of different lengths. The white bristles seem quite porous so using this brush to apply foundation directly to the face is not ideal as it gobbles up a lot of product. The flawless effect comes from the blending.

I like to apply my foundation sloppily with my fingers and then blend with this brush.  My foundation has never looked so close to natural skin. I am a happy girl!

It can be use a brush like this with any foundation type. The downside is that it is expensive but I am happy to report that I love my Sigma SS187 just as much and it costs a fraction of the price.

What’s your favourite brush?

    hi there, have you tried using this brush with the Revlon PhotoReady foundation? I have a simillar one from Sephora, but I find it does not give me the effect I wish for…and that is so sad, because I personally love that foundation, btw…you do a great job, I watch your youtube vids too…good work :)

    I don’t have the MAC 187 because MAC brushes are ridiculously expensive in Australia, but I do have the Sigma SS187, and like you, I love it. It makes applying and blending foundation a breeze. I have a smaller one from the travel kit that I go over my face with once I’m done to pick up any excess foundation, too.

    I agree. The SS187 is so soft and I love the SS219 because it means I can finally line my eyes. The SS139 should get a shoutout too though because it is the brush that I use so, soo much! I’m still in the honeymoon with my Stigma brushes, can you tell?;-)
