My Makeup Brush Set- Wooden Brushes

Happy New Year everyone! I’m pretty excited about this year and am definitely anticipating a lot of joy, family, travel adventures, and fun. Welcome to my first blog post of the year! I received this brush set from My Makeup Brush Set and thought it would be fun to do a date night look to test them out. These brushes are really soft! There’s a mixture of synthetic and natural hair bristles, and every brush you need to do any kind of makeup look. As a makeup artist it’s always nice having multiple brushes on hand. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the majority of the brushes! I did have a couple of the eyeshadow brushes shed a couple bristles, but they applied the shadow evenly and I was able to buff in the pigment nicely. If you’re in need of some new brushes and are on a budget, I recommend giving them a try. This 32 piece brush set with the case is just under $30 which is a pretty great deal! There’s a huge variety of shadow brushes, smudge brushes and powder brushes, and it includes a brow comb, lip brushes, and two fan brushes. For this look I used the IT CC Cream for my foundation, a Too Faced bronzer, the Becca Champagne Pop highlighter, the Tarteist Lip Paint in Birthday Suit, a Dior eyeshadow palette called Embrace, the black Stila Liquid Eyeliner, and the Dior It Lash mascara. It’s been awhile since I’ve done a full face of makeup! I’ve been really into more natural and quick makeup looks, but it was fun to dig into all my products. If you all enjoy makeup posts, let me know and I’ll do some more of them this year! Much love to all reading this and thanks for the support. Be blessed this year! -Love, Kari

My Makeup Brush Set – OVAL BRUSHES

I finally got around to playing with my round makeup brushes from My Makeup Brush Set, and I was pleasantly surprised! As a makeup artist, I have my favorite go-to brushes that I can’t live without but I challenged myself to create a look only using my oval brush set. First off, they’re sooo soft and I love it. I really loved how my foundation buffed in to my skin without any streaking. I also thought that a lot of my products would be absorbed too much by the brushes but they weren’t. I used the second biggest brush to apply foundation and also used it to apply my bronzer and blush and it worked great. I used the smallest circle shaped brush to apply my eyeshadow to the crease and outer corner. The eyeshadow applied well and I liked it but I did go in with my fingers and soften the edges of my eyeshadow since I didn’t have any type of blending brush. I would also say to be soft handed when dipping into any of your pressed powder products. Because they’re synthetic bristles and pretty dense, if you press to hard you’ll have a lot of left over powder that you won’t use that you’ll end up blowing off your palette or powder. I really loved the smallest thinner round shaped brush. I used it as a smudge brush to soften and smoke out my bottom pencil eyeliner and it looked great!  Overall I liked these brushes and it was fun to challenge myself to use something different. I would definitely say that these brushes would take some getting used to, but I can tell the more I use them the more I’ll love them.
