Face brushes

Bronzer Brush | Blusher Brush | Powder & Sculpt Brush | Foundation Brush

Bronzer brush

For gorgeous, glowing skin, a large-headed bronzer brush is a must. The size of this means that you can get a completely even application, which is crucial when creating that sun-kissed look!

Blusher brush

The perfect blusher brush has a rounded head with lots of bristles to create a flush of color, with the option to POP color on the apples of your cheeks.

Powder brush

You want your powder to be lightly applied only where you need, to ensure a dewy, flawless complexion. Light fibres and a sculpted end mean that your application will be precise and not end up leaving your skin cakey and flat.

Foundation brush

A foundation brush with a flat paddle side means that you can reach all those hard to reach places on your face with minimal wastage. This is the best brush for getting that even, smooth base for your makeup.

Eye brushes

Blender Brush | Eye Liner Brush | Eye Smudger Brush

Blender brush

A blender brush should be the essential brush in your makeup bag. Whether you want a light wash of color or want an intense smokey eye, the blender brush is your ultimate starting point for any makeup look! The soft bristles mean that you can soften your look and get a seamless application.

Eye Liner brush

An eyeliner brush is great for a super precise application, which is helped by the angled point to perfect your feline flick. You can also use this to lightly apply color to your eyelids for a subtle, defined look.

Eye Smudger brush

The smudger brush is your go-to for effortless definition in targeted areas. The small, packed bristles mean that it’s great for highlighting the inner corner of your eyes or getting close to your lash line!

Lip brush

Lip Brush

The square tip to a lip brush means that you can get a precise finish to your makeup, perfectly angled for emphasizing your Cupid’s bow, or you can even use it to soften lip liner and blend into your lip for a just-bitten pout.
