The Soap Brows phenomenon is happeining in the UK and after seeing it in action on instagram I got my hands on some too. Lucky for me I got one of my fav models Morgan to bring me one all the way from London. I actually first saw the Soap Brows Kit in action on Nikki Makeup's instagram account. Its all about natural groomed bushy brows that give a gorgeous shape to the whole face.
There is often a time when I have serious limited time to clean my bushes so sometimes I just have to use a brush cleaner. On my travels in London I picked up the Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette to test out on cleaning my makeup brushes. Its actually the first time I have used this kind of palette before and I really like it. I have tested a special brush soap from Mii Cosmetics which worked a treat too. However this palette is mess free and cleans the brushes so well.
Its definitely not anything I have used before when it comes to cleaning brushes. The latest Mii Cleanse and Condition Brush Balm is a new way to clean bushes effectively and still keep all their softness. I was asked by Mii to be one of their BFF's with the launch of the new product. As I really have become a fan of the brand I jumped at the chance straight away. The balm comes in this cute packaging that looks like a soap and will literally be your brushes new best friend. Yes please.
I got this foundation brush from Urban Decay at the end of last year and have totally fallen in love with it. Its the Urban Decay Optical Blurring Brush which I have been using it on myself and on models to apply foundation. Its one of those brushes you can use for a multiple of things. But so far my fav has been creating a flawless complexion.My favourite brush always changes and at the moment this is the fav. I was defintely a slap it on with fingers kind of girl until recently. Purely because having kids you have about 2 minutes to get your face on. This brush has changed my ways and I really think its for the best because my face looks flawless. Well so I think any way.
I just got back from my oversease trip attending my crazy friend's wedding but of course on route I managed to squeeze some shopping in. I have been a little obsessed with rose gold for some time now and it started with jewellery but now its shoes and make up brushes. If you haven't spotted the new metallic Superga rose gold shoes then get a load of these bad boys. They just look amazing and I had to have them. Lucky for those of you based in SA you can get them at Superbalist. They are the perfect touch to adding some bling and pop to your outfit even if you going for really casual.
With my new gorgeous vanity table from @home in my lovely new home I needed a new makeup storage unit that wasn't too big. Most of makeup is in my makeup room or in my kit bag so I keep the essentials in my bedroom and I needed something where my foundations can stand up right and all my essentials are easily accessible.
I am an absolute lover of makeup brushes not only because I am a makeup artist but because I love the way they look and feel on the skin. There are so many ways to use a brush allowing you to be really creative and also to be cost effective. For me a brush has to look good and the bristles have to be soft because when I am doing makeup I want my model's to relax and feel good. I was excited when these new Gosh makeup brushes landed on my desk last week and what better way to test them but on set for a shoot.
I love makeup brushes and of course with being a makeup artist I always want more. In my recent trip to London I ordered a few more Zoeva rose gold brushes because I love them so much. What's great about the brand is that you order and get a gogeous pouch to house them so a little more value is added. Sadly you can't get them in SA but get you can order overseas and get someone to bring back or get it shipped here.
