I was probably about 12 when I received my first set of eye shadow. I didn’t have Google or You Tube to teach me how to put this eye shadow on. Everything I learned was by doing. From the first swipe of the eye shadow brush to the first lipstick I applied to my lips, it was all trial and error.
I did a decent job, of course this was the 1980s and almost anything went at that time!
I have came a long way and have learned a couple things. 1. Less is more. 2. Blend!
That is when makeup brushes started coming into my life. I am lucky that I have had the chance to try out a few sets of brushes along my way. My most recent set of makeup brushes is a set from Beauty Lally. This is a 10 piece makeup brush set. It comes in a nice canister that I can store them in when I am not using them and one that looks nice on my make up table. It is also convenient to throw the canister in my suitcase when I am going on a trip and not have to worry about losing brushes out or getting make up on my packed clothes.
Beauty Lally even includes a cute little compact mirror you can throw in your purse.
In this case you will find the following 10 brushes:
Blush and Bronzer Brush
Flat Foundation Brush
Eye shadow Blur Brush
Eye Shadow Brush
Do I know how to use all these brushes? Truthfully? No. But I do have them now and like the little girl at the age of 12, I will learn what each does by trial and error. Beauty Lally makes it easy figuring it all out by supplying this chart.
I can tell you that these are soft brushes that are made well. They are good for creams or powders.. They are made of highest quality synthetic hair - I haven’t experienced losing any of the brushes while applying makeup. I have also found out they are easy to wash out with soap and water.
I have seen make up brushes really expensive. You can get this whole set: 10 brushes, canister and compact mirror for $25.00 on Amazon. In my opinion it is worth that price. I have had this set for a couple weeks now and so far so good!
