Sigma Beauty Purchase July 2012

Published July 12, 2012 by MyEye4Fashion

Hey guys, My purchase from sigma came in!

I got the Performance Eyes kit, sample eyeshadows from their palettes, my FIRST brush belt, and the F82 round top. I’m really excited to use these items! If you remember in one of my recent post, I wasn’t sure which round top foundation brush I was getting. Since I already wanted to purchase the Performance Eyes kit and the pink brush belt <3, I thought I might as well! I’ll let you know how I like it.

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Until next time 🙂

Foundation Brushes- Flat Tops

Published July 7, 2012 by MyEye4Fashion

I have quite a few flat top brushes (a few pictured below), some of them are stippling brushes. In my experience, I don’t consider them the best for liquid foundation, with regards to the finish I desire.

I mean regular flat tops do the job, but find the stippling ones ineffective. I feel like I’m just swirling product on my face; I prefer those for blush.

More recently I’ve been using the 727 brush from Sedona Lace, the Midnight Lace collection. I looks like a flat paint brush. I thought I wouldn’t care for it much after my experience with ELF’s Studio Foundation brush, but to the contrary I really like it!

When applying liquid foundation I feel like I waste less product and it makes it easier to build coverage. You can get streaky lines from the brush, but it can be quickly remedied by using the brush in a patting motion anywhere the lines are visible.

The next brush I would like to try is a round top. I think it would be great to buff in liquid foundation. One of these brushes below, I haven’t decided yet 🙂
