As we are currently doing make up in college and brushes didn’t come in our kits, I need to buy myself a set.
I have to say, I didn’t realise it would be so hard to decide on what brushes to get. I know some people in my class are going for the like of Mac but my problem is I want to buy from an animal friendly company…which Mac is not. My desire would be:
- Animal Friendly
- Eco Friendly
- Cost Effective
- Good Quality Brushes
With my list in mind, I managed to shortlist two companies, they are The Body Shop and EcoTools.
Knowing that I have a few brushes from The Body Shop in my own make-up bag that are so soft and enjoyable to use however they do work out quite costly to buy a full set. I also don’t love that The Body Shop despite all their positives are owned by Loreal.
I also have been browsing the EcoTools brushes. The reviews look great and with them being on a 3 for 2 offer in the store I work in along with staff discount I would get a fairly good price for them. I also love that they are made from recycled materials and are not tested on animals. However I am yet to use these brushes and don’t know what they feel like? If I can find somebody with a few of these brushes that would let me test them out they could be perfect.
I had checked Ebay for inspiration and the prices seem to be fantastic for the EcoTools brush sets, but there is always the worry that they are fakes.
I know not all beauty therapy students will struggle so much to come to a conclusion of what brushes to buy and will go straight to the best value or biggest brand they can find at a good price. However I find it important to start as I mean to go on and am trying to build my kit with all the things I will want to use when I am fully qualified.
On another note, I was browsing some Halloween nail art ideas to get inspiration from other folks designs and I came across a lady called Robin Moses. Wow, this lady is amazing at what she does! And so I want to share her YouYube channel with you all www.RobinMoses.com
Enjoy and be inspired!
