Clarins launches makeup brush collection

Clarins launches its first ever makeup brush collection later this month - and I can't believe there's never been one before. It is small, perfectly formed, and worth the wait! Clarins has launched brushes before, but singular, never in a collection like this. The brand launches six makeup brushes in total, all of them super soft and synthetic, with birch wood handles crafted from sustainably managed forests. I have had a play with a few … [Read more...]

Bright Beauty Tools at Superdrug

I popped into Superdrug last week, and I spotted these bright coloured beauty tools. Now, I am a sucker for anything bright and bold, particularly in the primary colours, and I had to have them.

My absolute favourite makeup brush is a Bare Minerals … [Read more...]

Nanshy Makeup Brushes

It's all very well buying the latest makeup - but if you don't have the right tools to apply it, what's the point. Yes, sometimes a quick smudge with your ring finger works for a wash of eye colour. But there comes a time when you really need to invest in some proper makeup brushes. Brushes are expensive - but ask any makeup artist and they will tell you, they're worth it. I have spent around £20 on one eyeshadow blending brush before. So, I know … [Read more...]
