Don’t ever go low with your brushes. There’s an old saying that the beauty in a painting doesn’t reside in the colors or the paints, but the tools with which those colors and strokes where applied. The same holds true for cosmetics, which are an extension of a similar artistry. You can buy the most expensive eye shadow or powder or bronzer in the world, but they won’t look good if applied with cheap brushes. Consider brushes an investment that will allow you to make the most of your products, and thus, save you money in the long run!

Paula Dorf’s Perfect Double-Ended Brush Set are synthetic, space-saving and cruelty-free brushes that give you the ability to be your own makeup artist. They are constructed with Taklon hair and the brushes come encases in a leather-looking pouch, so you can transport them in style. The five-piece set features complementary, paired brushes which make application a sinch, for the beginner or the seasoned veteran! There’s brow groomer and filler, a flat eyeliner brush and smudger, a sheer crease and eye shadow blender, a foundation and concealer duo and an incredibly fluffy, loose powder and cheek contouring pair. Available at Sephora or Beauty Bridge.
