Sigma Makeup Brushes

Hello guys!

Today I want to talk to you about Sigma Makeup Brushes.
A few days ago I received some makeup brushes from Sigma and let me tell you, they are just perfect!

I chose some brushes that I didn't have in my makeup brushes collection before.

The first one is the SS224 Tapered Blending Brush (E40). It has natural bristles and its top is rounded and tapered. This brush is made to apply and blend color on the crease.

The second brush I got is the SS219 Pencil Brush (E30). This one has natural bristles too and it's perfect for a precise application of color on the crease, outer corner and upper and lower lash line. It is also very good to smudge out the pencil liner.

In the next post I wil tell you about the gift you will receive if you purchase 30$ or more using this link.


My 1st attempt to Water Marble

Hey guys!

A few days ago I decided to try the water marble because I was watching tutorials for some time now and I said it's time to do it myself :)
So, I grabbed a cup of room temperature water, 2 nail polishes (pink and purple), some scotch tape and patience :P

This is how it looks:

I think it came out pretty well for a 1st attempt :)
What do you think?

Oh, this is the tutorial:
