Topshop Makeup Edit SS13 (part 2)
Next up is a look at the cute little make-up brush kit that’s part of the collection Packaged into a little clear pouch, with a more delicate version of the familiar Topshop polka dot package. With five small, clear-handled brushes – a mixture of shaped shadow brushes (including a rather awesome blender one), concealer brush, plus the larger sized blusher brush.
These brushes are all nicely sized – small enough to be compact, but not so small you need to be doll-sized to make them usable! My personal favourites are the blusher brush, the angled shadow/liner brush and the blender.
Synthetic bristles mean they’re easy to clean and look after – they’re quite firm so make detailed work easy. Using with the bright colours from the rest of the collection would be ideal – keeping control when using the brighter colours is pretty important (unless you want a bit of a rainbow face).
One other part of the collection that I haven’t covered off yet are the peel off nails – not a new launch – I had a peel off nail varnish from Lancome when I was a teenager. I have a really nice blue shade to use, which I tried a couple of days ago and just couldn’t get it to work for me – I’m going to give it another go before I form my final opinion/blog about it… if you have any tricks for making it work then let me know!
