Makeup tools - can't get enough of them.
When it comes to the 'specific' uses of make up brushes I kind of like to make my own rules - what works for me doesn't necessarily work for everyone else. A while ago the lovely people over at Crown sent me some tools to try out and I have picked for you today, some of my favourites.
First and foremost - I apologise for not washing these first but I have been using them everyday and well, other things take precedence. These lovely brushes have long black handles and natural or synthetic soft fibres.
C456 Pointed Blender (£5.99*) is one of Crown Brush' best sellers and if you buy this you will instantly know why. It is my personal favourite of all the brushes I have tried. Cleverly designed to use in conduction with powder or creams the pointed blender by name is great. I sometimes use this for blending in my concealer but more often than not - it is my 'go to' eyeshadow applicator. Teamed up with C433 Pro Blending Fluff (£6.09*) they make the perfect duo. I have to concur with other bloggers - The Pro Blending Fluff is definitely a dupe for the MAC 217 Blending brush - £18.00 but significantly cheaper. The name speaks for itself. Excellent for blending eyeshadows, contouring and highlighting. A definite must have.
C431 Precision Detail (4.39*) works right into those nukes and crannies that other brushes just make a mess of. I love to use this to apply either my liquid liner or two smudge out pencil. I also find this perfect for applying more definite shading of eyeshadow.
Last but not least I give to you the C406 Large Duo Fibre Face Brush (£9.29*). Originally this brush seemed a bit odd to me, can't put my finger on it but I wasn't a lover at first sight. However I gave it a go and find it absolutely perfect for applying some delicate blusher or a fine dusting of powder - though it can be used with fluid too This is great if you want to go for a subtle less 'caked' daywear look.
Most of these are best sellers and if you are looking to update your collection I would honestly not hesitate in purchasing any of these. They are significantly less expensive than most of their competitors and the quality is great.
