These are my make-up brushes that I have been using for ages, and when I travel and have to pick just the most essential brushes with me they are these six! For foundation, especially during summer when I use my Dr.Jart+ BB cream SPF30 I love to apply it with RealTechniques Expert Face Brush! This brush is great for that flawless air-brushed skin finish. To set my bb cream with Laura Mercier Mineral Powder SPF15 [my favourite combo] I find RealTechniques Stippling Brush works the best with this product, it applies it gorgeously and lightly buffs it for a luminous sexy skin finish. Sometimes I'm also in the mood for more coverage and like to touch up in the evening with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural with MAC 109 a small contour brush, but I find it fits perfectly under the eyes and around the nose area buffing the mineral foundation beautifully.
Speaking of contouring, my favourite brush is Sigma Large Angled Contour Brush in F40, it fits perfectly in the hollow of my cheeks for a natural looking contour! I think it's meant to be the dupe for MAC 168 brush. To apply powder blush I only ever use MAC 119, it lays a blusher flat and the size is perfect for my cheeks as well. And finally to finish off with a glowy complexion I apply a touch of highlighter on top of the cheekbones taking it lightly up into the temples with RealTechniques Duo-Fiber Contour Brush. This brush is great for many things, but I happened to love it especially with a highlighter, it acts almost like a fan brush placing the highlighter gently for a natural sheer finish.
