The real stars to a flawless makeup application aren't the foundations used or lip colour painted on, its all in the tools. Quality brushes don't just help apply makeup, they also allow you to be more precise.
Not a new launch, but still a favourite, these Make Up For Ever brushes launched in September. Since my introduction to them at the launch event in NYC last April they've become the only brushes I use. I'm infatuated.
They say an artist is only as good as her tools, so having 76 brushes in a range should make her great, right? Dany Sanz thinks so. Only her brushes aren’t crafted for canvases; she designed them exclusively for the human landscape. A painter turned makeup artist, Sanz is the mastermind behind the French cosmetic brand Make Up For Ever. This massive brush collection, called The Art of Brushes is made from 100 percent synthetic fibers that offer the same silky softness of natural hair, but without the cruelty. This launch was a labor of love for Sanz, taking over four years till completion. After being a faithful user of her tools for nearly a year I'm happy to say it was totally worth the wait.
