I mix 75% gentle dish soap and 25% virgin olive oil in a small dish, rinse my brush quickly with water, and quickly swirl it around in the mixture. Dish soap may not be as gentle as professional brush cleansers, but so it doesn't dry out the brushes I use the virgin olive oil to condition them. It gets the makeup out in a few seconds. I've been doing this for years and my brushes look brand new.

Hi,

I clean my brushes with a professional brush cleaning solution. Sephora has a line of solutions made for brushes, as do other companies. Since they're specially designed for brushes, these cleaner help keep the brushes performing well. I blot the brushes dry and let them air dry overnight. I have brushes that have lasted for years, although I take very good care of them. My oldest brushes may be older than ten years old, and they look like new. Of course, during the years I've added brushes becasue those older brushes weren't designed for the products that have been more recently marketed.

Hope this helps.

The brush case has pockets for each brush to be placed in. Then a little silver flaps covers the brush itself. The whole thing folds together and stays put with hidden magnets. I have never had a problem with it opening and having brushes fall out. It's a wonderful little setup.

Question
Is this a good set or is it better to buy individual brushes?
I am trying to decide if this set is good or if it is better to buy individual brushes? Can you use mineral foundation with this brush and it look right? Are the eye brushes useful for all areas of eyes? I think I would still need a smudge and/or crease brush. Is it a good foundation brush? I was told by a Sephora salesperson that is it better to buy your face brushes but you can buy eye brushes in a set. I like that they are synthetic b/c they are soft and trying to upgrade my drugstore brushes (they are scratchy).

Thanks!

I bought the separate antibacterial synthetic round foundation brush for my mineral foundation, but I use the flat foundation brush in the set for liquid foundation and even sometimes tinted moisturizer. I do like the eye brushes but also have a couple of others that I have bought separately. This is a very good value for an entire set of brushes. I'm a discerning customer who isn't afraid to spend money; but I have very sensitive skin and some allergies and have found this set to be outstanding. I've owned the set for over a year, maybe 2.

If you buy individual brushes you are running into a pricey area...if money is no object then go for it. But honestly, this set is great! Yes you would need a crease and smudge brush but they aren't that expensive individually compared to face brushes. If using a mineral foundation I'd suggest another brush specially designed for it and just use this powder brush just for non-mineral blushes. But you really can't beat the price...plus they are easy to clean low maintenance.

I was in the same boat too. I had drug store brushes that were scratchy and didn't do a great job. This was the first kit i bought and the brushes were amazingly soft. I tried individual brushes that are over 30$ each and this kit gave the same results. For the price of individual brushes as compared to this set, you would save more on this

I was wondering the same things you are when I was about to purchase the kit. I think I made a great decision by buying this set. It is cheaper to buy the set and these brushes are really soft. They do work with mineral powder since that is what I use. Each one of them is great! Hope this helps you a little bit.

I am a cosmetologist and I do bridal parties, proms, adn pagant girls a lot! I am going to purchase this set becuase I don't do a lot of people. If you are going to have a large customer base I would splurge on the big set. It is aloways better to have more tools in my opinion. There are so many different eye shapes and lips shapes it would be better to have a professional set. If you have a small group of folks you could use this, but I would get the bigger one if I were you!

no, i don't think this set is sufficient enough for professional use. it's very basic and more for starting out for personal use or a travel set. the handles are too short and i would imagine it be hard to use on someone else. agree with other reviews on this product that the largest brush is not the best. The size/shape/sythetic hair combination does not work for this particular brush.

I am a professional Make-up Artist (I've worked with commercial photographers for print media/billboard ads etc) I tried this set out on myself before gifting one for my little Goddaughter as her first (quality) brush set. I don't use this for on the job. I prefer to use Bobbi Brown, Aveda and few other random/mixed brand name brushes. Two toned brushes have a different density and pick up color differently. Sometimes you have to spend more time swirling the brush in the color to pick it up, which really, doesn't seem like a big deal, but when you have to do 50 brides for a bridal catalog photo shoot and only 6-7 hrs to do it, then those extra seconds you have to spend can add up and take away your efficiency. But if you are starting out, then yeah, just go for it. I would suggested building your brush set slowly, finding out what you like. Buy one new brush every paycheck until you have a collection you are happy with. As you do that, you will find what works for you and what doesn't. Don't buy an expensive set right right off the back, chances are, you wont use/like every single brush in that set. Build your set slowly. But at the end of the day, good brushes vs bad brushes make all the difference in the world.

answer 2
Yes! There is a smaller foundation brush that I am normally used to using. Pictured above it would be the second brush in the set. The trick to blending liquids is to start with small amounts on the bush. Blend in an upand down manor not side to side. Once that amount is gone
re-apply and then start again. It may take longer but less is always more and your foundation will be set as a great base everytime!

I find the foundation brush to be a little small, but it is a good size for blending around the nose/eyes/ears/etc. It does sometimes leave some streaks, which I fix up with a damp sponge. For the price of this set and the overall quality, it's not a bad brush.

I use the concealer brush DAILY and i find it to be adequate. If you have a lot of acne/scars, and want to cover them up more quickly, you might want to look for a larger concealer brush. This brush is about the size of my ring finger nail, a little bit thinner. I use it for blemish touch-ups and undereye concealer.

Question
Why does cleaning my powder brush mess it up?
So, I got these brushes a year ago for Christmas, and I love them dearly. I try to take good care of them, so I clean them reguarly. My usual method is extra virgin olive oil and either baby shampoo or dishsoap. It works well on each brush but after they dry, the only brush that doesn't regain it's proir texture is the powder brush.Instead of being wide and fluffy, the hairs clump together and it looks dirtier than before. I tried that hitting against your wrist in circular motions to "open it up" but nothing works.. What's wrong with it?

There's nothing wrong with the brush I would suggest buying Sephora's brush cleaner...for some reason it works better than regular cleansers worth the price. Since face powders are slightly creamy what happening is residue is still there and it's clumping the bristles together. Either cut the olive oil for just that brush and rinse the brush more thoroughly or buy their cleanser...that's all I use.
