Want to do makeup like the pros? Well, here’s your chance! I accidentally stumbled across these while looking for a new set of the traditional makeup brushes. I had no clue what these were and what they were being used for–never have I see them before. I mean, come on, these look so bourgeois! That’s right up my alley. I thought, surely those can’t be for amateur use. This made me want them that much more.
So, I went home that night and did what any clueless person eagerly yearning for info does–I went on Youtube! With a few clicks, I found a demo video telling me all about these innovative, chic little brushes. Immediately, I was hooked! I knew that I was going to have to try these out for myself. I ended up going back to the store and making the purchase.
I found these in my local Burlington Coat Factory store in Webster, TX. I was simply ecstatic that I was getting a set of “Oval Brushes” for myself, at a great price point. I purchased this set of 3 brushes for (wait for it…) a crisp $9 guys! You cannot beat that, especially since the authentic 10 piece Artis set is about $400. That’s a major price difference! $400 is almost a car note for me! Umm, yeah… NOT TODAY… NOT EVER… I tried to find the direct link to the exact product for you guys, but I was unsuccessful. I did however find a very comparable brush set here on Amazon.
These brushes are ergonomically designed for self application of makeup.. Near the head of the brush, you’ll notice that the stems on these brushes have a little give to them. This is done to reduce the amount of pressure that it being applied to the face. The black finish adds a professional feel to the brush.
The fibers used within them are as soft as polar bear mink (Is that even a thing? lol). The fibers in these brushes are packed very densely. When applying makeup, the product sits on the very top surface of the fibers. There is little to no saturation into the brush. This is great because you end up wasting less of your product. Application is very simple. You are left with a smooth, airbrush finished consistency. How can you not be impressed!
I achieved the look below after only my second time using the brushes. As you can see, a flawless finish was delivered! They are extremely user friendly. I’d recommend these brushes for all skill levels. Be sure to check out my video below if you’d like to see the full tutorial on how I created this look using the oval brushes. I keep it super simple, so don’t be intimidated! SUBSCRIBE if you like my content!
