Part One was introduction to my brushes and the cleaning process (ugh)
Part Two was my review of the Face Brushes.
So we're on to my thoughts on the EYE BRUSHES from Sigma.
L-R: E70 Medium Angled Shading, E55 Eye Shading and E30 PencilThese are the three eye brushes I have been using CONSTANTLY. Before, I had one eye brush that I got from the Avon many moons ago, and it was probsbly most similar to E70. These three brushes are all super soft and quite dense, E70 and E55 are natural hair and E30 is synthetic. They have all been recently used in this pic.
I use E70 as to highlight under my brow, you can't see how angled it is in the photo above, so here's a closer look:
I use E55 all over my eyelid, it's very sturdy and distributes colour well. I then use my favourite eye brush - E30. I have nooo idea how I did make up for so long without realising how much I needed this little beauty! It really is like a pencil, it's so precise, perfect for the crease and outer v. Love this brush!
L-R: E40 Tapered Blending and E65 Small AngleI use E40 for blending, it's soft and fluffy to smudges colours together easily. I have not yet tried it on eyeliner, but it works well on eyeshadows and feel so nice, like a wee duster on my eyelid! =p I use E65 for eyeshadow under my eye. I always like to extend my colour underneath my eye, and this is the perfect brush for that. It's very rigid and I imagine if you wet it it'd be good for applying eyeliner too.
A close up on (a clean) E65, you can see how angled it is.
L-R: E60 Large Shader, E05 Eyeliner and E25 Blending
These are the brushes I haven't been using as much. E60 is a nice shape, but it is huuge. Maybe if I was doing a wash of colour over my whole eyelid I would use that. I might start to do that and then focus in my colour with the E55 I mentioned above. I might also use it to spread primer over my whole lid.
I use a liquid eyeliner that comes with it's own little brush nib, so I don't have a whole lot of use for E05. I would use this if I was maybe lining my eyes in gel liner or wet for an eyeshadow line.
E25 was my free brush, and it's quite similar to E40 (mentioned above). Because of that, I don't really tend to use it very much either.
In conclusion, I absolutely LOVE my Sigma eye brushes. They've totally changed the way I do make up and I use 5 out of 7 of them daily, and the other three I can see there being uses for when I develop my skills.
So what do you think? Do you use this many brushes for your eye make up?? And am I using any brush wrong/ could be using it in a different way?
Let me know!
