Makeup brushes are just as important as the products themselves. We say this often here at Beauty News NYC. You can buy the best, most high end products. But if you don’t have the proper tools with which to apply them, you are SOL. Enter M.O.T.D. Cosmetics. The brand’s brushes are both vegan and cruelty-free, so you can use them in good conscience. In addition to allowing you to apply your eyeshadow and powder foundation with incredible ease, the brushes feature a description on the handle that tells you their exact function and purpose, thus eliminating the guesswork. The phrasing also injects a little humor into your morning while you apply your makeup and literally get ready to “face” the day. The hairs are super luxurious and tickle the skin but they are also effective at placing and buffing product.

But it’s the aforementioned names that announce what each brush does that will have you “oohing” and “aahing”. The smudger is called “No Fudge Just Smudge,” while the definer is dubbed “Miss Shady Lady.” The fine liner brush is christened “Pick Up Line,” whereas the small shader has been named “Pigment Packer.”

These brushes serve to remind us that makeup can and should be fun.
