Hi My Lovelies! Am I improving or what? Another blog post for you. I launched my WOMAN by ANNA Make Up Brushes in 2012 during the 4th Season of FACES by Anna., however, I don't think that I had the opportunity to really show you guys what WOMAN by ANNA Make Up Brushes is all about.
So, without further ado, lets take a look at the WOMAN by ANNA Make Up Brushes. It is a set of 15 brushes, a combination of Goat Hair and Synthetic Brushes that you can use to perfect your base, blush, contour and bring out those beautiful eyes of yours.
This set is also perfect for a starting Make Up Artists because it has all the brushes that you need to start with.
The complete set retails for AED 350 or USD 96 and is available at Promakeup Boutique in Dubai as well as at www.fashlink.com.
WOMAN by ANNA Make Up Brushes comes in its own brush case as well as Brush Guide that gives you insturctions on how you can use your brushes.
A Sneak Peek at the Make Up Brushes
The All Over Face Brush or Brush 01
This is an excellent brush for applying face/loose powder. The size of this brush allows you to set your foundation in less sweeps, hence, avoiding the caked up look.
Anna's Advice: Always tap off the excess from your brush before applying your face/loose powder.
Less is always more.
The Contour Brush or Brush 02
The contoured tip allows you to lightly contour your hairline, temples, hollows of the cheeks and jawline.
This contour brush also allows you to powder small areas of your face should you wish to sport a dewy look.
The density and shape of this brush also allows you to use this brush for bronzing. :)
The Blush Brush or Brush 03
The shape of this brush allows you to apply the blush on the apples of the cheeks and swish it up on your cheekbones that "flushed and sculpted look"
The Stippling Brush or Brush 15
The soft bristles of this brush allows you to work your liquid products into your skin without having to worry about damaging or irritating your skin. This brush is amazing for cream blushes and liquid highlighters.
The Precise Contouring/Highlighting Brush or Brush 14
This versatile brush allows you to contour your temples, hollows of your cheeks and jawline with more ease and precision.
Cleansed from contouring, the tapered tip also allows you to highlight the features of your face that you wish to bring forth.
The Taklon Primer Brush or Brush 09
The multi tasking brush. This is perfect for applying all types of cream or liquid products, may it be your eye primer, concealer, highlighter or contour, liquid shadows.
The Foundation/Concealer Brush or Brush 13
The size of this Foundation/Concealer Brush allows you to apply your foundation/concealer in less strokes making it look more natural and avoiding the caked up look.
My Lovelies, these are face brushes that will help you in creating the perfect canvas. The Eye Brushes will be up next :)
Now that I am back to writing and keeping in touch with you all, I am also very happy to announce that I will soon be updating my You Tube Channel which will feature tutorials that will help you, my lovelies to be the best that you can be :)
Hope you are all having a great day and I will see you all soon.
Love and Light,
