I have a terrible weakness for brush sets (I don’t need any more but I want THEM ALL) and I love Studio 10, so I was very excited to get my hands on the Studio 10 Brush Up Brush Set, which is a collection of five, double-ended brushes presented in slate grey, faux snakeskin purse. You get a brush to cover all the main aspects of make-up application, and it’s kind of like a grown-up starter set, so ideal for anyone who would benefit from being introduced to the magic that is a decent brush kit.
The Face Brush has a stippler at one end and a dome-shaped foundation brush at the other end. I have this one already and can say with confidence that it’s brilliantly handy, and can be used for all manner of things such as the typical cream or liquid base application, as well as contouring, applying cream blush and buffing everything together. The Cheek Brush has a dome-shaped blusher brush at one end, and an angled contour brush at the other end; both ends are best suited to powder application. The Concealer Brush has a flat paddle at one end for concealing larger areas and a pointed concealer brush at the other end for more pinpointed application.
The set also includes two double-ended eyeshadow brushes, so four in total. The Eyeshadow Brush has a paddle brush at one end and a dome brush at the other end for applying shadow and building it up. The Eye Define brush has a contour blender at one end, which is particularly handy for working colour into the crease, and an angled brush at the other end that can be used for applying liner as well as brow product. As you can see, it’s a fabulous little set of high quality brushes with a value of £154 if purchased individually. You can pick one up here – link – for £75.
