Brushes

Tuesday, May 1, 2012



Brushes are essential and necessary when applying make-up.  Although you'll often see me dabbing my finger when applying certain products on, brushes will make your make-up application much smoother and easier to manage.  It is imperative that you use a good set of brushes.  You don't necessarily need to break the bank, but you don't want to skimp either.  I own several brands though my favorites tend to be MAC and Sephora.  I recently purchased a set (at Sephora)that i thought i'd share with you.  It's a great starter set if you are not as make-up obsessed as i am, yet it makes a great addition to anyone's make-up kit.  I'm especially attracted to the argentine artistry brush roll's gorgeous orange shade inspired by Pantone Universe's color of the year "tangerine tango".   This brush roll keeps the brushes' bristles safe when not in use.  This particular set includes the following brushes:

-Brow comb
-Powder brush
-Foundation brush
-Fan brush
-Allover eyeshadow brush
-Detail shadow brush
-Crease brush
-Liner brush

I personally love them!  They made a wonderful addition to my brush collection!

  6. It looks like a wonderful kit! The sad part is I have no idea which brush does what! I'd love it if you could post something for all those who have no idea (I hope it is not just me!) in the future!!!

  14. I agree, MAC brushes are wonderful and i'd say most of the brushes i currently own are MAC. There is also another brand i own that i remember purchasing at Nordstrom years ago and i still LOVE (but can't remember the name right now). I'm currently working on a post detailing what each brush is for though it's taking some time since i'm a mommy and finding the time is sometimes hard lol. Nathalie, as for whether the Sephora brushes are good enough? The answer is absolutely, positively YES! Sephora brushes are very good. It's a personal preference. My suggestion is try them out at the store (Sephora, MAC or whichever brand you're willing to try) and see which feel better to you. Let me know what you end up getting! xoxo

    1. I actually really like these... however, it's missing one of my most essential blush brushes. I tend to like a fluffy small blush brush. This particular set has a large fluffy brush which i typically use for bronzer. It does have one that can be used for the apple of the cheeks but it's flat and i like fluffy. Really, it's a personal preference. I'm working on a post about each brush and what it's used for. Hopefully it will be useful :) xoxo
