Makeup brushes used to be a foreign concept to me. I managed to get by for years relying on cheap and cheerful eyeshadow brushes and little else, until I started to use professional tools and realised the difference they can make to application. Crown Brush are one of my favourite accessories brands as their brushes are super soft and amazing quality, providing really easy application with tools that are light to hold and simple to use effectively. The bristles are dense and compact, making it easy to grab product and use the brush to work it into the skin, while the angles and shapes really work well with the contours of your face. These are the tools of the trade too, supplying brushes to makeup artists across the world who really need their kit to perform; with all these positive points of the brand making it sound too good to be true, it’s even more surprising that the brushes start from around £2.99.
Three of the new brushes in the ever expanding range are the ‘small round buffer’ and the flat and pointed ‘blender’ brushes. I love a stumpy brush to apply blusher with and this is my new favourite; the dense bristles really help to pick up a good amount of product, while their length aids buffing colour subtly into the skin. The two blending brushes are really chunky and fab for applying a base colour, or simply blending a stronger colour away from the lash line. Although initially I didn’t really know how to use them, they’re now great to use for touching up or perfecting a look; I’ve even been using them under the eye to tidy up and highlight darker areas. If you’re on the market for a few new brushes, or just want to expand your portfolio of accessories, then I can’t recommend checking out Crown Brushes enough… It’ll change your makeup life.
