A good set of make up brushes is an essential part of a make up collection in my opinion, the quality can have a big effect on how make up looks when applied. I have learnt the hard way it's much more cost effective to spend a bit more on brushes that will last instead of constantly replacing cheaper ones. I was kindly sent some of the make up brushes from the range made by The Vintage Cosmetic Company and was really excited as I don't own that many make up brushes suprisingly!
The packaging is gorgeous and right up my street! I love the girly and vintage theme that really fits in well with the brand. The colours on the packaging are lovely and the floral print is a nice touch too. The actual packaging is very sturdy and it took me a while to get into each brush but it means they were well protected. The back of the packaging tells you the best way to use each brush too. The cream handles of the brushes are wooden and have the name printed on so you know what its intended use is.
Powder Brush £16* - A duo fibre, natural bristle brush which allows you to apply powder easily to even out skin tone and create a smooth, flawless look that will last all day. This brush is so soft and works well to apply powder to set your foundation, I've also liked using this to blend liquid foundation into skin.
Bronzing Brush £17* - The bronzing brush is quite a large domed brush with natural bristles. It is perfect for picking up a light amount of bronzer to warm up your skin tone and get a sunkissed look. This could also be used as a powder brush because of it's large domed shape!
Blusher Brush £14* - The blusher brush is similar to the bronzing brush with it's flat but domed shape and natural bristles. It works great when contouring and highlighting, it's the right size to apply blush where I want it. It also doesn't pick up to much product, you can easily sweep a light amount of blush and build up.
Foundation Brush £14* - The foundation brush is a flat synthetic bristle brush to be used with liquid or cream foundation. This is the first brush like this I've used, I do prefer a stippling brush but have found this works well with certain foundations to create a flawless base. I like using this the most for cream highligher.
Concealer Brush £7* - This small brush is great for applying concealer under the eyes and on blemishes. You can easily control the coverage you are creating and blend out concealer well. I didn't expect much from the concealer brush as it is so small but it's worked its way into my essential brushes!
Brow and Lash Brush £8* - I love these double purpose brushes, they are really handy to have. The lash side seperates any clumps in mascara and the brow end is great for removing excess powder after filling in eyebrows.
All of the brushes are very soft and well made, they have worked their way into my collection. Each brush can be used for lots of different purposes as well as what they are meant for. They wash really well with minimal shedding only on their first wash, and are a great quality.
