My essential eye brushes

2nd September 2016

image1 (13) image3 (7) image5 (9) My makeup brush collection is not the most extensive, but of all the eye brushes I have owned over the years, these 4 are definitely my most used. These photos were taken a few months ago when they were brand new (which explains the pristine white bristles) when I went for these 4 beauties from the Zoeva rose gold collection…

The 230 Luxe Pencil: this brush is perfect for applying eyeshadow to the upper and lower lash lines to create a smudgy and smoky effect

The 231 Luxe Petit Crease: this small tapered brush can be used in the socket to create quite a defined cut crease look

The 234 Luxe Smoky Shader: I like to use this brush for packing on colour to the eyelid- the rounded shape is ideal for this

The 142 Concealer and Buffer: this is the ultimate under eye concealer brush- fits perfectly in the contours of the face and nose

These brushes were very reasonably priced at £7.50 for the three eyeshadow brushes and £8.50 for the concealer brush, and the quality is definitely up there with the MAC brushes I own. As well as being impressive value for money, these brushes are certainly aesthetically pleasing with pale pink handles and rose gold ferrules complete with an embossed Zoeva logo.

All the brushes in this collection are available in the classic Zoeva black and silver, but I had to go for the rose gold collection, because… rose gold…
