Brushes // Japonesque

Hello girlies,

Hope you are all having a lovely bank holiday weekend, mine has been pretty relaxing, but tomorrow i am going to my first car boot sale with the family, we've got our own little stall so are hoping to get rid of some junk - bring on the 7.30am start!

Today's post is all about some rather lovely brushes from Japonesque, a brand that has been whispered about throughout the blogging land for some time, and rightly so - the brushes are uh-mazing!

Pro Eye Detailer - 213
This brush is very versatile, it can do anything from packing colour onto the eyelid, creating a nice shape whilst applying eyeshadow and it even work very well in the crease - a great all rounder! The bristles are soft and quite densely packed which i find helps pick up eye shadow better.

Pro Eye Shadow Crease Brush - 232
No prizes for guessing what this brush is used for... ;) This brush does exactly what it claims to do and work shadow into the crease like a dream! The brush is dense enough to get some nice definition in the crease, but i've found you do have to do a bit of blending afterwards, to give you a slightly softer finish, otherwise it can look a bit harsh.

Pro Eyeliner Brush Flat
This eyeliner brush works well with liquid and gel eyeliner, and also picks up eyeshadow really well if you prefer to use that as a liner. The brush has a nice sharp edge which allows you to get a nice precise line. I've been using this brush daily with a dark brown eyeshadow and simply pressing it against my lash line to create a very subtle daily smokey eye, works like a dream! :)

A little thing i noticed about all Japonesque brushes is that on the back of their packaging they have a little 'how to' guide as to what the brushes should be used for. I think this is very helpful for people who maybe looking for a brush for a particular purpose, or if they are simply not sure how to use it! Bravo Japonesque.

Japonesuqe are available at Boots and Amazon.

Hope you all enjoyed the post and are doing ok. Have a lovely sunday evening!
