Whether you're contouring or strobing, I think we can all agree that having the perfect kind of brushes is essential to your looks. IMO, the best brushes can seriously make a huge difference in your overall routine. Not only can your tools take your makeup game to the next level, but it can also be the difference between good and bad skin. For these reasons, makeup lovers absolutely need Sigma's Baking & Strobing Brush set. Not only does the kit come with five different brushes, each tool is made with fibers that are "designed to avoid product absorption and growth of bacteria. What's more, they "can be used to apply cream, liquid, or powder products" according to the Sigma website. Look no further, guys — your new favorite brushes have arrived.
If you're not familiar with Sigma Beauty, it was founded in 2009 by owners Rene Xavier Filho and Simone Xavier. They've got quite an unusual background for makeup entrepreneurs. Sigma Beauty's website sums it up best, saying, "Combine a scientist with a PhD in Infectious Diseases and Molecular Biology, along with a Civil Engineer with a Master’s in Business Administration and you get Sigma Beauty." So cool, right?
On their new brush set release, Xavier explained, "Sigma Beauty has interpreted the 'Baking and Strobing' trend with functionality in mind. We have engineered the perfect tools to master these trendy techniques effortlessly. All brushes were exclusively designed, utilizing patented Sigmax® and SigmaTech® synthetic fibers. The result is as flawless as the skin-finish they’ll create. We can't wait for our clients to put them to the test!” Sold.
The brush set officially comes out August 22, but you can sign up for a waitlist on their website that will let you purchase the products before their launch. You can either buy the set for $84 or buy each brush separately.
So what's exactly in this brush set and what can you expect from it?
Allow me to fill you in:
1. F06 - POWDER SWEEP™
This brush is specifically designed for setting powder and any other product consisting of powder in general. You can also use for blush or bronzer. Its size is particularly perfect for under your eyes, on your forehead, and below your cheeks.
2. F42 - STROBING FAN™
The strobing fan is perfect for all you strobing enthusiasts out there. It's a great highlighter tool for both your cream or powder products.
3. F79 - CONCEALER BLEND KABUKI™
The concealer blend kabuki brush can be used for either liquid, powder, or cream concealers. Sigma Beauty explained, "Use a patting or stippling motion to perfect application under the eye or on the face."
4. F89 - BAKE KABUKI™
Sigma Beauty gave us a pro tip on how to use this brush. They explained, "Spritz the fibers with water before picking up product for extra control to prevent fall-out. You will also love this brush for foundation and contour or alternatively, for a subtler bronzing application." The brush head is designed with a deep angle and has a top with a flat edge "to press on setting powder."
5. P89 - BAKE PRECISION™
According to Sigma Beauty, "This is the smaller version of the F89 Bake Kabuki™. Jill Powell, celebrity makeup artist that works with Demi Lovato explained, "I am obsessed with the [P89 Bake PrecisionTM]. I use it for concealer under the eyes. It gives full coverage and an airbrushed finish. It makes the concealer go on so smooth and I find myself using less product and getting better results." No wonder Lovato looks flawless wherever she goes.
Mark your calendars for August 22, everyone!
