New Brushes in My Makeup Bag

I was shopping recently on Sephora and wanted to get some new makeup brushes. It seems one eye shadow blending/ crease brush was simply not enough. I also did not have a brush for brow powder or a brush that I was happy with for concealing under the eyes.

For a long time I have used my fingers or a beauty blender for applying makeup. But let’s face it, when it comes to the eye area (brows included) fingers and sponges will not do. Was a brush necessary for applying concealer? No. But I felt like changing things up a bit and had not bought a concealer brush since visiting a Napolean Perdis counter in 2010. So I thought it was time for a change.

So there I was on Sephora, clicking my way through the categories and stumbled upon Zoeva. My sister has a whole collection of Zoeva brushes she purchased in the Gold Coast Sephora store, which I am very jealous of.  So I thought it was time to curb that jealousy and join the party. While I did not need a complete collection, I decided upon three brushes that would add to my existing collection of face and powder brushes.

The brushes I purchased were part of the Rose Golden Collection (because who doesn’t love Rose Gold?) and are made from vegan, taklon hair.

Zoeva 322 Brow Line
I have had the Tanya Burr brow palette for quite some time but haven’t used it as much as I would like as I simply did not have a brush that was effective in application. The palette comes with tweezers and a small brow brush however I found the bristles too flimsy to deposit much product into my brows. This Zoeva brush however is made from dense, short fibers, which make it very effective in creating neat lines.  I really like the soft finish it creates compared to using a brow pencil.

Zoeva 228 Luxe Crease
Once I received this brush in the parcel I realized it is very similar to my Daniel Sandler Blending brush. However I do find it handy having an additional fluffy brush for applying eye shadow. The brush is so soft and fits perfectly into the crease of my eye. I also am very slack when it comes to cleaning my brushes so I will probably alternate between the Daniel Sandler and Zoeva brush based on which one is clean at that point in time. So lazy!

Zoeva 142 Concealer Buffer
I have some serious dark circles that require me to always leave the house with concealer on. I have tried going out without any makeup on however that only leads to questions like “Emma, did someone punch you in the face?”. Ah, no, that dark bruising around my eye comes naturally, thank you so much and have a wonderful day. The magic of genetics!

I have a real loyalty to Tarte CC under eye corrector- this is great if you have dark circles! The apricot tint to this product disguises the blue undertones of my circles. I like topping it off with another concealer such as the NARS Creamy Concealer (I use shade Chantilly). I apply the concealer with the doe foot applicator and then blend it out with this brush for an even finish. After years of blending with my fingers, I am happy to have this brush in my collection.
