Fave 5: Contour Brushes

My makeup brush situation is low-key out of control, I just like having a bunch of different options... 62 options, to be exact! Amongst those 62, there are 5 that are my go-to contour brushes.

BECCA THE ONE PERFECTING BRUSH

So I like to think of this as the large-and-in-charge version of the Nars Ita! I love using this for an all over bronze and to carve out the cheekbones. But its called “The One” because you can use it for SO many things. To see it in all its glory, watch this Becca video where they use it to apply makeup to a piece of fruit. SO weird, but magical AF!

NARS KABUKI ITA

Okay, I know every hoe in the damn nation has talked about this brush but it’s for a good reason. The shape makes getting those Kim K cheekbones SO quick and easy. A little pricey, but it is 1000% worth the investment.

MAC 116 BRUSH

The way the bristles are tapered towards the end makes this brush so perfect for contouring. This is technically for blush, but you can use it to bronze and contour with as well.

SIGMA F40 ANGLED CONTOUR

Definitely a must-have, I use this brush literally every single day! Sigma brushes are ultra luxe and well-made, but still really affordable.

LUXIE JADEYWADEY180 SCULPTOR

This fan brush is so good for sculpting the face, it has a flat top kabuki on the other end which is v. convenient for cream contour. I love supporting Jade and her Luxie collab is so gorg, pink and cute AF! I’m also beyond obsessed with her nose contour brush which you can get as a single, but in this set you get 6 brushes in total and 3 are fab for contouring!

So there you go, those are my top picks when it comes to contour brushes! I also just published a post talking about my favorite 5 bronzer and contour powders, so peep that too! But if you want to know exactly how I sculpt my face, I’ve got a tutorial up as well.

Remember to clean your brushes after every use with a daily cleanser and aim to shampoo them once a week. Yes, I shampoo all 62 of mine every week! This shampoo and cleaning mat get the job done SO fast. If you skip out on this, your brushes will just be filled with bacteria and cause breakouts. Let’s not sabotage our clear and glowing complexions babes!
