This morning, I enjoyed Michelle Phan’s segment on TODAY. If you’re not familiar with Michelle, she is the You Tube sensation who turned makeup application into an art form. I love to watch her create an absolutely incredible array of different faces – everything from a Daenerys Targaryen look (Game of Thrones) to an Egyptian Queen! And, one of her top hints for makeup application is so simple that we can all employ it. According to Michelle, “…nothing compares to a nice set of brushes. Using brushes to apply your makeup means more control over color disbursement and a smooth, picture perfect finish.”
Of course, Michelle likely has hundreds of brushes from which to choose. But, for the rest of us, even just a few brushes can be a major investment. In fact, some of the most highly touted makeup brushes can cost $20 – $50 per brush!
If you’re ready to graduate from cheap drugstore applicators and brushes, but cannot justify spending a huge amount on a new set, I’ve recently discovered a high quality alternative from Missamé. The Missamé 10-Piece Bamboo Professional Brush Set is made of sustainable bamboo and premium taklon fiber. The material is synthetic and 100% animal-free, but it feels like the finest animal hair.
The bristles are extremely soft and dense, with virtually no shedding. Plus, the set is cruelty-free and vegan, with handles crafted of sustainable bamboo. And, unlike cheap synthetic brushes from the drug store, which can be rough on skin or quickly fall apart, these brushes are well crafted and built to last. But, most importantly, they will help you with blending and contouring to achieve a smooth finish for that “air-brushed” look.
Because they are synthetic and easy to clean, the Missamé brushes are also suitable for all types of makeup including powder, mineral, gel, cream or liquid makeup.
This 10-piece set includes everything you need for a flawless face, including:
- Flat top brush
- Kabuki brush
- Contouring brush
- Foundation brush
- Oval blush brush
- Dome blending brush
- Angled eye brush
- Concealer brush
- Tapered smudge brush
- Angled liner brush
This brush set even comes in a lovely travel case, so it would make a wonderful gift for a bridal shower, birthday or Mother’s Day. It is available exclusively on Amazon and includes a 100% lifetime guarantee.
The List Price is $99.99, but right now, you can get the Missamé 10-Piece Bamboo Professional Brush Set for only $69.99, which includes FREE Shipping.
And, although I may never be quite as talented with makeup as Michelle Phan, at least now I have the proper tools to look my best!
