NEW! Purple & White 523 HD Make-up Brush Sets

My eyes light up when these NEW HD coloured tipped make-up brush sets arrived at Crownbrush HQ! Especially the purple set. My favourite colour!

The new 7 Piece Crownbrush HD Set is a combination of quality dense Nylon bristles for precise application which are perfectly adapted to the new generation of cream and liquid make-up, and are becoming increasingly popular with professional make-up artists. 

The blue and lilac bristles not only look stunning but are also practical in camouflaging any make-up staining. 

Used with powder shadows, they pick up smaller quantities of product, producing extremely subtle effects for a flawless high definition finish. The 7 piece set comes in a white and purple patent leather case which is 210 mm Long, 140mm Width (closed), 285mm Width (Open). The set also includes Crownbrush tweezers.  The best thing about these sets, is the fact they are £29.99 each!

Synthetic bristles offer superior application for, not only powder products, but especially for cream and liquid formulas. Since these brushes absorb very little product, waste is greatly reduced. 

Pro Powder

A medium sized extremely soft jumbo powder brush for a flawless high definition finish. The compact head of bristles is perfect for applying setting powder or dusting bronzer for a sun-kissed look. 

Tapered Blush

My favourite foundation brush in my make-up kit ever and I love now that it's in blue and lilac! In fact I wish Crownbrush sold this alone as I would have loads. It allows me to use cream and liquids to create a flawless base and contouring along the jawline and cheekbones! Yes it's called blusher- And of course it still can be used to apply cream, liquid and powder blusher too. 

Deluxe Contour

A 'Multi -Use' brush. The techniques are endless with this brush. It's Small, dense rounded head gives a fingertip-like application when Applying cream/powder blush along the cheekbones and is also perfect for placement of cream/powder contour on the hallows of the cheeks. I have also been known to use it to place a primer/base on the lids too. 

Chisel Shadow 

Using just the tips of this brush to apply colour, sweep back and forth through the crease for a diffused and blended finish! Its amazing with creams and powders. 

Crease Blender

With it's stiff oval shape, this brush provides a sheer, more controlled application of powder Eye Shadow which I love using to blend a smoky eye out. I feel like I have so much control with this brush for blending rather than using a larger blending brush and opt for this brush when creating all my eye looks so again another brush from this set I can't live without. 

Detail Liner

The perfect brush for thin and precise application of liner when using gel or liquid liners.

Eyebrow Tweezers

My Top Tips for Plucking eyebrows. Simply tweeze after your shower. Warm water opens the follicles and softens hairs, helping them slip out more easily.

The 523 HD Brush sets in Purple and White are only £29.99 each and are online now!

Tal has created eye art designs from movies, food and even animals! I catch myself staring at her art or minutes. I can’t actually believe it’s done with make-up!

Tal shares that it's not hard to draw on her own eye and that it's  easier than drawing on someone else's eyelid. Tal also expresses
 it is possible to be so precise with the right equipment, experience, tools and steady hand. People are writing names on rice grains!
