My Fave Sigma Brushes
I know I've talked about my favorite Sigma Brushes before, but I didn't really get to dive into just what makes Sigma such an amazing brand. Sigma was founded in 2009. It has a mostly female team (I'm talking 90%) and they have consistently been innovators in the industry. The brushes themselves are made out of antimicrobial synthetic material. That's huge, ladies. You know how oily and dirty our faces get, and do you really want that stuff building up and growing in your makeup brushes? I think not. The handles of the brush have at least 8 layers of primer and paint to ensure that they're long lasting. It's well made stuff, folks. This post may contain affiliate links.

Let's get to the good stuff!
THE BRUSHES. Oh, the brushes. I love them so, so much.
The most popular brush in my opinion is their F80 foundation brush, pictured below.
The F80 applies my liquid foundation in such a flawless way. The density of the bristles creates an airbrush finish, and I find myself needing less with this brush than I do with other brushes I've used. Above all else, the brush is incredibly soft. It makes me WANT to put on my foundation.
As of a few months ago, Sigma released the Dimensional brush collection. I currently have the 3DHD Kabuki brush, and I love the way the angle of the brush allows me to apply foundation around my nose and eyes.
For highlight and contour, there are a few that I keep going back to, and for good reason.
The F57 contour brush is perfect for carving out your cheek bones. I love the short, firm bristles and the way it applies my cream contour and bronzer. For highlighting, I'm usually using two brushes. One for precise application, and one to blend it out. For application, I like the P88 Precision brush, and for blending my highlight and concealer, I always use the F35 Tapered highlight brush. If you take your highlight and contour game very seriously, you really can't go wrong with the Highlight and Contour Brush Set
My go-to for blush is definitely the F15. It sweeps on cream or powder blush beautifully, without leaving any streaking.
I could go all day on eye brushes, but because I want you to keep reading and not give up on me, I'll only list a few!
The E38 to blend everything into perfection.
The E43 to create that perfect soft smokey eye.
The E50 for highlighting the brow bone and cheek bone.
The E15 for definition, liner, applying cream or gel shadows.
The E21 to smudge out your liner.
The E57, the easiest way to apply concentrated pigment without any fallout.
The E65, my favorite brow brush.
If you're interested in multiple brushes, your best bet is to get a set. They always discount their sets, and with my code "Bloombeauty23" you can get an extra 10% off your order!
The set above is the Best of Sigma Set, which is a $130 value for only $92. Plus, don't forget my discount code! This set truly is the best of Sigma. I talk a lot about these brushes, and they were some of the first I got when I took the plunge into this brush brand.
If you're looking for more of a complete set, take a look at the Essential Brush Kit. As of this post, this kit is on sale for $125!!! It's a $228 value, so that's seriously an amazing deal. When you combo that with the extra 10% off my code offers, you really can't beat it.
All in all, you won't be disappointed by these brushes. The quality, the design and the application make them worth every penny!
