BEAUTY | My Favourite Eyeshadow Brushes

I absolutely love makeup brushes and my collection has continued to grow over the few years that I’ve been interested in makeup. I’ve also collected a fair few eye makeup brushes and I’ve decided to create a post all about my holy grail, go-to brushes – these are the ones that I will use without fail, whenever I create a more dramatic eye makeup look.

Sigma E40 Tapered Blending Brush (UK Option) – $17.00/£12.75

This is the best brush for blending out any harsh lines. I tend to use this one first when creating any eye makeup look. I pop the first crease shade on with this brush and then continue using it to further blend and blow out the eyeshadow in my crease. It is quite a large brush and it does cover pretty much my whole eye lid, but it’s amazing for ensuring you have no harsh lines. It’s also super soft – just like every other Sigma brush.

Sigma E25 Blending Brush (UK Option) – $16.00/£12.75 & Zoeva 227 Luxe Soft Definer Brush (UK Option) – £8.50/£8.99

The Sigma E25 and the Zoeva 227 are pretty much the same brush, I just tend to use one for the lighter crease shades and the other for the darker shades. The Zoeva offering is slightly fluffier than the Sigma one and does look a little bigger, however they definitely perform the same. These two brushes are your basic blending brushes. I also like to use whichever one has the darker shades on, to apply shadow to the outer third of my eyelid when creating a smokey eye.

Sigma E55 Eye Shading Brush (UK Option) – $16.00/£12.75

The E55 is very dense and the bristles are tightly packed, making this the perfect lid brush to apply shadow with. Sometimes I will use my finger tip, however I just generally prefer to use brushes all round. I really like this brush as it picks up a fair bit of shadow, obviously it does also steal a lot as well, but that’s the same with most makeup brushes. There isn’t much fallout with this brush, it just all depends on which eye shadow you’re using – if you’re using one that does tend to fall out then this brush won’t help much!

Sigma E15 Flat Definer Brush (UK Option) – $6.00 (Sale Price!!)/£12.00

The perfect size and shape for applying shadow to your lower lash line. Again, the bristles are tightly compact so they don’t move much, meaning there’s a very low chance of applying shadow to your whole under eye (it can’t just be me that hates using fluffy brushes to apply their lower lash line shadow with?!). There isn’t really much more to say with regards to this brush, apart from that fact that I think it’s perfect for it’s sole purpose.

Sigma F70 Concealer Brush (UK Option) – $15.00/£12.00

One of my first ever Sigma purchases, that is actually supposed to be used for concealer (as the name suggests..). However, I adore using this brush to apply highlight to my browbone and inner corners of the eyes. It’s the perfect shape and size for the browbone and I just love it.


Which eye brushes do you swear by?xoxo
