Best Full Coverage Foundation Brush

Hello Beautifuls, I know you know my love and devotion toward the Original Beauty Blender, but on occasion this girl needs to kick it old school and use some brushes!

So, without further ado, here are my Top 3 Full Coverage Foundation Brushes!

(NOTE: this is not in any particular order, because every time I think one is better, the other still surprises me and then I can’t choose).

Okay, so I will start off by saying all of these are some version of synthetic bristles, which tend to always result in fuller coverage/better product pick up than natural bristles.

1) F80 – Flat Kabuki Brush, Sigma Beauty, $24.

The only time being dense AF is a wonderful thing! This guy is packing in some bristles for sure and the top is completely flat. I almost want to say that this may be the fullest coverage of the three because of how dense it is.

I really like the quality of sigma brushes and find them to be a much better deal than other pro brands. I haven’t noticed any bristle fall out, which is great. Sigma uses their patented Sigmax Fibers, which claim to not absorb products, and be antibacterial and hypoallergenic. The metal tone comes in either chrome or copper. I got the chrome but I kinda wish I got the copper 😬.

Anyway, all in all, I think every MUA and makeup lover can agree that the Sigma F80 is a staple and must have brush in your collection.

2) M439 – Deluxe Buffer, Morphe Brushes, $13.99.

So, I recently started crushing hard on Morphe! I will get into their other products that I adore in another post, but the M439 is just awesome! For a while I opted for the flat top but this one brought me back to loving round again.

This brush just results in a very pretty, hd, very blendable full coverage effect. I notice a teeny bit of bristle fall out and my handle started loosening, but for the price, it is well worth it to get the amazing ball of dense soft bristles.

3) 3DHD Kabuki Brush, Sigma Beauty, $24.

Last, but not least, the Sigma 3DHD! This guy really does deliver an hd, full coverage finish. But, what’s really special about it, is the “3D” shape. It gets into the corners, around the nose, eyes, mouth, etc and then you just turn it back to the flat side and blend, baby, blend! I use this one the least out of the three but I don’t really have a reason for that because it really is an awesome brush!

The 3DHD is also made up of the Sigmax Fibers and comes in chrome and copper.

All 3 are great with both liquid and creme foundations. Thanks for reading and happy makeup-ing!
