The world of make-up can be daunting. Let’s
be real it gives some the heebee jeebies! If you are a makeup novice you have to start somewhere. The choice of makeup alone is mind boggling without then having to find the correct brushes to apply it with. The choices are endless. Ok, so it easy for me as a makeup artist I do own a lot of makeup brushes. But I do understand THE FEAR! Every make-up application I have done has seen me give advice on make-up brushes and how and where to start off. Fortunately, the ever growing make-up industry is allowing us have the choices of many starter kits. Always the one to support Irish it is a pleasure to be able to source these from Irish companies and see this industry thrive within our own humble isle.
When it comes to starting off I would always suggest starting simple. By doing so, there is less confusion. Too many brushes with different looks and different uses will confuse and the interest will be lost. I always suggest a good starter kit to get to grips with the brushes and application and to then add to your collection the more confident you become.
Here I have compiled my top 3 makeup brush sets to help get the ball rolling to apply makeup in a jiffy. Again, I’ve narrowed it down and kept it simple to include just three so not to bambozzle your mind with hundreds of brushes. These sets are all high quality and well priced, straightforward and will easily transition you to the world of makeup. Also, for those more confident with warpaint will love these sets.
- AYU 5Pc Gold travel set
This post was inspired by this set alone. The set is a travel set bearing shorter handles but don’t let that put you off. The set has everything you will need for an everyday makeup. The brush heads themselves are standard sized bearing exceptional quality and what’s more the pricing is majorly attractive. In fact I couldn’t believe my eyes when I seen the price for a set which produces such a good makeup finish. It contains a buffer brush which is excellent for foundation. An angled blush/contour brush, a blender brush, a Pro blender brush which is one of the nicest blending brushes I have used and an angled liner brush. This set looks beautiful and luxurious and makes an ideal gift for a makeup lover or someone developing an interest.
