The Big Brush-Up

[ 0 ] August 17, 2009 |

What woman hasn’t experienced a little high after buying a new lipstick or makeup palette?  It’s a rather 190-brushinexpensive luxury that still allows you to feed, clothe the kids and make mortgage payments.

While makeup can be an essential beauty pick-me-up, its silent helpers often go unnoticed: the lowly brushes.  These little guys work overtime to ensure flawless, makeup applications – if you are using a high-quality brush.  That means, no shedding (terribly annoying and embarrassing), maintaining its shape wash after wash (you’re washing your brushes regularly, right?!) and it is soft and luxurious.

I found such a brush at Sephora the other day.  Made by Cover FX, this powder brush retails for $49.00.  Is that steep?  Yes.  Do you get what you pay for?  Yes. If you’re on a tight budget and have to choose between high quality makeup or brushes, many makeup artists will advise the latter option.  A great brush will likely outlast your latest makeup fad.

This brush is made of 100 % unbleached goat hair), does not leave stray hairs on your face and is guaranteed to last a long time.  It also remains sturdy and balanced thanks to the ramin wood handle.  A lot of work has gone into this brush and in my opinion, that makes it worth the money.

If you’re in the market for a great loose/pressed powder brush, give this one a try and let me know what you think.  I’ll highlight more of my favourite makeup brushes in future posts.
