My TOP Makeup Brushes & Tools

Totally honest... I hadn't really thought about doing a video like this in the longest time. I guess because my makeup brushes are sort of always there and rarely changing. However, after showing you all my best makeup and beauty products of 2013 (check that out here), I thought it only appropriate to give the makeup brushes and tools some love too.

Makeup brushes and tools are just as important as the makeup... true story.  We all take such care in choosing the perfect formulas of eye shadow, foundation, liner, etc, but I've noticed that some people overlook the tools themselves which you use every single day.  For example, I see a lot of situations where people don't bat an eye at purchasing the best of the best eye shadow or foundation, but don't see the importance of investing in good tools to go with them. A good set of brushes really do all the work for you and can totally change the way your makeup looks.  Plus, if you care for them correctly, you'll have them forever.
I remember years and years ago when I first started investing in quality brushes, I was absolutely amazed. They make such a difference.

So rather than just reviewing brushes here and there or doing a video on a particular set or brand, I wanted to just keep it real and show you the brushes that are currently in my rotation. As in, on my counter.
Being used every single day.  Alllll of the ones that I reach for the most often.  My best of the best. My favorites.

So I set this one up a little different. I go through every area of makeup and show you my best type of brush that I prefer for each application.  I hope you guys find it helpful!!

  8. Thanks for the video. I've been using Sigma brushes for 2 years (via your suggestion) but have had a lot of issues with my Foundation and Powder brushes shedding, like as in I may look as if I need to shave after applying. I've always taken great care/washing/drying etc so have been frustrated and am ready to try something else. I will probably be purchasing the Tarte brush and a Beauty Blender. Thanks!!!

    1. Elizabeth - I have noticed the same thing. My sigma face brushes, powder and foundation brushes, shed like crazy. And I have taken excellent care of them. Instead of buying more, I have just opted for trying brands that are more reliable and maintain the same quality over time. You wont be disappointed with the Tarte brush! Its amazing and it doesn't shed or bleed at all.

  9. A makeup brush is a tool with bristles, used for the application of make up or face painting. The bristles could be made out of natural or synthetic materials. wholesale makup

  10. Greetings Tiffany! Do you have any sets you are willing to sell? I have been stalking the Sigma site however I am not in a position to make that type of purchase for their retail price. Please email me should you have anything. ALSO.... what type of base would you recommend for a woman in her 40s? I have noticed that even with the Makeup Forever it will set into fine lines. I'm now starting to wonder if it is a "tool thing".

  11. Thanks for sharing. I have been waiting for you to do this video. I agree it is important to invest in good tools for applying makeup. :) You should consider seeing if sigma would put out a Makeup by Tiffany brush set. Just a thought.

  13. This video was super helpful! I was surprised that you mentioned the F80 before the F84! I noticed you use the F84 more in videos. I purchased and love it! Will have to try the F80 also. Your makeup looked great.

  21. I loved the post.
    Even I disagree with the term make up, but one is drawn to beautify oneself to be accepted by society. And cosmetology made a business out of it. cosmetics care

  23. Lovely video... This color coding is extremely intelligent and useful when you're looking for a particular brush to put your makeup on in a vast collection!
    It reminds me of the brushes my sister bought from tinyurl.com/professionalmakeupbrushset they are extremely amazing but she is not giving to me for carrying to my home...
