So many brushes…
I have been hearing great things about many different makes of brushes at college from the other students, but I began to get a little confused about which ones would be right for me so in order to get things straight I approached my tutor and asked her what her opinion was about which brushes I should purchase; taking into consideration the fact that I do not yet practice as a trained make-up artist.
I told her that I didn’t have a huge budget yet I required something luxurious that was good value for money. Many of my college friends have been talking about the “Real Techniques Bold Metal” range at Boots which I have to say, I absolutely adore but at the moment they are sadly a bit out of my budget; so I made the decision to go with my tutors advice of purchasing the: “Zoeva” brush set.
I took the plunge and ordered the: “Rose Gold Vol 2” set from Beauty Bay, I even received a free pot of mineral foundation powder which I thought was a pretty good deal.
I was so excited to see the post man bringing them to my door but sadly I was feeling a little rundown so as much as I wanted to open them, I made myself wait until I could really appreciate them. Eventually, when I was feeling better, I opened them and I am so glad I waited.
They are prefect and actually, I am really surprised at how soft they feel and especially with how nice and evenly the foundation goes onto my skin. I have, until now been an avid sponge user when it comes to applying foundation but these brushes have really converted me and I doubt very much that I will be going back to using a sponge.
I have always thought that there is a lot of wasted foundation when applying it with a sponge and I think I was right because I have been using a lot less foundation since applying it with a brush: bonus!
As well as being impressed with the way the brushes apply product to my skin so far (I haven’t yet used all of the brushes), I am also absolutely loving the appearance of them, not to mention the classy little make-up bag that they come in which I can use for other bits of make-up as I keep my brushes in a stand on my chest of drawers.
All in all these fab mid-range brushes get a big thumbs up from me and I am sure they will do me just fine as I continue with my training at college.
Some other purchases that I made this week were: “Real Techniques Core Collection Kit” for the face and some amazingly funky pink hair dye, both of which were from Boots.
The hair dye which is called “Bleach” apparently comes out after 2 or 3 washes. I don’t know if I dare do it just in case it doesn’t wash out, but if I do, I will probably just do a dip dye kind of application so that I do not have to worry about removing a whole head of colour if I don’t like it.
