I know that good quality brushes are so important in doing makeup. A great brush helps you to define your eyes or cheekbones – blend and smooth colors and different textures – or enhance your looks in any way really.
When I first started doing makeup and experimenting with different eye shadow looks I used the worst brushes. I cringe just thinking about it. I used those brushes that come with the packaging and blended my eye shadows using brushes like these. And yes I owned about three brushes and that was it.
After that I got better brushes – and learned the difference. I used Duroy’s brushes in school and after that I got Coastal Scents brush set and sold my Duroys. I really like the Coastal Scents brushes and still use them – but they don’t last forever and they could be a tiny bit better. Softer but stronger – ’cause now they all detach in the middle and that is so annoying when you have nothing to have a grip on. Other brands I’ve tried are Ecotools, Kryolan and Morphe. I like all of them – especially Ecotools.
My newest friends are these three brushes from Zoeva. I got them from my sister while she was in Germany. I needed some new eye shadow brushes that would be soft and good with crease-work. And you know what? These are good! No regrets even though I bought them blind. I’ve only had them for a while so I don’t know how well they last but they seem quite strong. Not to mention they are beautiful.
ZOEVA 231 Luxe Petit Crease Brush is good for crease when you want more of a defined look and it also fits the lower lash line nicely.
ZOEVA 225 Luxe Eye Blender Brush is perfect for blending the crease and blending anything really. This is my favourite brush out of these three.
ZOEVA 221 Luxe Soft Crease Brush is good for blending and fading colors out. It’s also a cleaning brush if you happen to pull your eye shadow too high up (it happens okay).
