Whenever I’m buying people gifts, I always try to find little gems which the receiver will both need and love, and something that fits the bill for every girl has to be Eco Tools Festive and Flawless Face Set.
Packaged in a little cardboard book, the set includes five essential brushes which are basically everything you could want or need on a daily basis. As well as being the perfect brush set, the brushes are all quite dinky, which if perfect for people like me that lug around a makeup bag all day.
As well as being absolutely adorable, the packaging comes with full instructions on the best way to use the brushes. I love the fact that Eco Tools have included some harder to find brushes like the Buffing Concealer Brush, and all five are so soft and are absolute dreams to use!
The first brush is the Flat Concealer Brush. It has a densely packed head, and the bristles are very soft. It’s great for achieving a flawless look, I tend to use it on areas like my nose and around my mouth where I need to hide some redness.
Second is the Buffing Concealer Brush, and although I first thought that two brushes just for concealer was a little excessive, I am a complete convert! Again, this brush is incredibly soft, as well as being densely packed, but this is perfect if you need to hide blemishes or breakouts. I love the fact that it really seamlessly blends into my makeup, and makes any issue areas almost disappear. Just a note, if I use the brush directly on a blemish, I do make sure to wash it before storing or using again just to keep everything hygienic.
Next up is the Precision Foundation Brush, and to be honest, this is the brush I probably use the least. When I apply foundation I do tend to either use my fingers or a blending sponge, as I have never really figured out the art of using a brush without leaving behind strange marks. If you do possess more skills than me, the bristles are lovely and long, quite pliable and again, very soft.
I am in love with the Complexion Blending Brush – it’s designed for really buffing your makeup into a flawless finish, and it is wonderful! I’ve been using the brush to apply a light layer of bronzer in the mornings. It gives a really natural finish, and it’s also a godsend if you want to apply a super light dusting of highlighter over your cheeks and nose.
Last up is the Full Powder Brush, which is designed to really finish off your makeup look. It’s prefect if you want a light dusting of powder, and it’s great if you need to apply a layer of translucent powder to set your makeup. It has a lovely soft feel and gives a soft-focus effect.
