Beauty Essentials - good brushes! Christmas gift ideas.

As any make-up lover knows, it's not just about the product you use, it's the way you apply it that counts. For those beautifully blended blushers, crisp contoured eyes and lushes full lips you need the right tools!

If your skin needs a little help when it comes to adding warmth and colour, why not try the Silk Pro 4 Piece Bronzing Brush Set. Priced at £29.50 it's cheap for 4 brushes yet a good enough quality to ensure even application. The brushes included are:
1 natural hair SILK bronzer brush, 1 kabuki fan brush which is great for blending, 1 angle brush for blending in your foundation and 1 baby dome brush which allows you to add just the right amount of blush or bronzer to the apples of your cheeks. Oh - and this set comes complete in it's own little black travel bag.

One of the most essential parts of my make-up kit has to be my eyeliner and eyeshadow brushes. Laura Mercier brushes never fail me. The flat eye liner brush priced at £22 allows you to use your eyeshadow as an eyeliner, giving more versatility and a softer look than your usual pencil or liquid eyeliner. The brow grooming brush in this range priced at £10 is great, not only for taming those brows, but if you've a loose hair or bit of glitter on your face you can lightly brush it  away with the grooming brush. Have a look in store and ask one of the make-up artists for help picking out the brushes you need. Consider these brushes as an investment, treat them with care and they'll serve you well!

Clinique pro-style lip brush, priced at just £10! Apply your lipstick the professional way for precise definition and even coverage. Clinique's retractable brush allows you to apply your lipstick evenly and the long handle gives you more control, "Clinique's unique, long-lasting antibacterial technology helps ensure a high level of hygiene." Make sure you wipe clean your lip brush after use, or the lipstick will dry to the brush and separate the hairs.

Keep an eye out in the January sales, I got my Laura Mercier set last year for about half the normal price!
