beauty inside out

I always have a hard time finding the perfect brushes to apply my makeup. I have tested several brushes and my top two brands are Iconic Londen and MAC Cosmetics. The Iconic brushes have a sturdy handle and are oval shaped brushes. They are designed to adapt to the contours of the face to provide flexibility for fluid movement. They ensure a velvety touch and a sleek finish. They offer a complete set of brushes, you will get 15% off on your first order. Both companies offer makeup lines, but i tend not to buy any makeup from MAC for personal reasons.



001- Perfect for foundation, bronzer and setting powder
002- Slightly smaller than 001. Perfect for foundation, blending out contour, bronzer, blusher and setting powder
003 - Perfect to sculpt out your cheekbones
004 - Perfect to highlight, contour and conceal
005 - Perfect for eyeliner, brows and lip perfecting
006 - The best concealer brush you will ever use, also great to contour and highlight nose and smaller areas. Ideal for eyeshadow and defining


From MAC Cosmetics i love the 130SH Short Duo Fibre Brush, this is a short-handled brush. It can be used for applying foundations, creams and powders. It is so soft and i t feels amazing on your skin.


Most importantly don't forget to clean your brushes if you wan't to use them for a longer time. Iconic Londen advises to gently clean your brushes on an absorbent towel after use to preserve your brushes and avoid the build of product.
    1. Apply a small amount of shampoo to the hairs
    2. Supporting the head of the brush gently massage the brush in circular motions on the palm of your hand
    3. Keep rinsing the hairs until the water runs clear. Do not submerge the brush hair in water.
    4. Holding the hair bundle press the excess water out of the hairs against a soft, absorbent towel
    5. Allow the brush to dry over night
