Sigma Brushes are famous for having a similar look, quality, and performance as high end MAC cosmetic brushes. Sigma has a huge array of compare MAC brushes for half the cost which is more reasonable if someone is building their collection for at home or professionally. I was introduced to Sigma brushes this past year and have slowing been purchasing brushes to build my collection and professional kit. Makeup Brushes can be a spendy purchase. To this day I do not own a MAC makeup brush simply because they are so expensive and I would rather spend my money on a product.
Sigma is a great alternative to getting a high quality brush at a fraction of the cost and not having to settle for drugstore brushes. According to Sigma’s About Us page, these brushes ARE handmade which It thought it kinda cool. Esthetically they look high end and have great quality overall.
Why are makeup brushes important? Makeup brushes help in the application of product. When creating looks for everyday or night it is all about how much product is on the face. Using the aid of different brushes a more dramatic look can be achieved vs. a daytime look when minimal makeup is on the face. Simply using fingers doesnt cut it and in the end using brushes makes the makeup experience more enjoyable and easier to apply.
