You know how doctors carry their stethoscopes everywhere? We makeup artists/enthusiasts also feel we need to carry make-up brushes with us everywhere. Yes yes, I know, we're not the same & make-up brushes don't save lives, I'm just saying that we feel incomplete without our "tools". Okay, maybe I should have compared us to plumbers instead of doctors. Talking about plumbers, can you believe they killed off Mike in Desperate Housewives??!!!
Anyways, let's talk about happier things .... Too Faced Essential 3 Piece Brush Set. OMG I'm loving it so much!
One: It's PINK! *squeals*
Two: It's light & perfect for my handbag!
Three: The brushes are made of teddy bear hair. Tip of the cuteness!
Four: It holds 3 essential brushes. I could live on them.
I love Too Faced. So princessy & vintage-looking.
This kit is for $39.00 = Rs.2000. Bought it from apothica.com. I got it shipped to Shop & Ship, coz it worked out cheaper, since shipping within US is free. I told you about S&S here
Too Faced Shadow Brushes Essential 3 Piece Set
All the 3 brushes are so soft (thank you, teddy bear!). I've washed them once & they didn't shed even a little bit, woohoo!
Crease Blender: It blends eyeshadows really well. It's the softest of all my blending brushes.
Lid/Smoker: I use this to apply color on lids & crease. It's soft & a little stiff which I like.
Liner/Smudger: I like this better than my other angled liner brushes now. You can use it to apply gel liner or eyeshadow on your lash line.
It comes with a rolled-up instructions butter paper
Now the part you've been waiting for- how to create your own handbag make-up brush kit. I'm just showing you an example, and you can always get something cuter. At the moment I just have a pencil case I bought a few years ago, before a vacation, and it's what I carried my eye brushes in.....
The button & geometric design makes it not-kiddish. [Please don't get those Hannah Montana ones! =\]
This pencil case is for only Rs.35 (68 cents) from Rio Grande, New Delhi. I like that you can fit larger brushes too + it can take 2 rows of eye brushes.
You can also get a tin pencil box where you can also put your eyeshadow quad. Do they sell pencil boxes with mirrors? I wonder ;p. Basically, something hard is better & make sure you keep the length of your brushes in mind when buying one, you don't want the pencil case to be too short for your brushes.
Hope you enjoyed this post & I'll let you know when I find some cuter handbag brush cases.
Eerie thunder, wind & gloom here in Delhi! I feel like watching a horror movie tonight, but I've watched all the good ones! :)
