‘Born Pretty’ Affordable Makeup Brush Review

Makeup Brush Review

I recently came across the Born Pretty Website. They have an abundance of makeup brushes and beauty products at really reasonable prices. Normally when something is ‘reasonable’ the quality suffers so I thought I would try out a couple of brushes and a creme eyeliner. In my opinion, you can never have too many makeup brushes and I am always on the lookout for the perfect eyeliner.

I have always used a flat foundation brush to apply the product and then another to buff in the foundation so I wanted to try out the Tapered Face Brush. The bristles are ultra-soft goat hair and the tapered tip is great for applying the foundation and also buffing it into the skin.

The shape is perfect for blending foundation into any hard to reach areas with better precision than using a flat brush. I used this brush to apply my everyday foundation (Ester Lauder Doublewear) it is medium/full coverage foundation so I like to blend it in to avoid it looking heavy on my skin.

I was really happy with this brush and the shape of it is fab for using with any cream blushes as it blends so well without holding too much product.

The second brush I used was the Born Pretty Angled Face Brush. I used this with my cream bronzer (Chanel Universel Bronzing Makeup Base). Too much of this bronzer can make my skin look too dark so I like to apply a small amount and build up the desired colour by lots of blending and a little contouring on my cheekbones/jawbone.

This brush worked well as it is so soft it didn’t create any harsh lines. The soft shape was great for subtle contouring and adding powder blush onto the apples of my cheeks.

Some brushes have hairs that fall out which can be a bit of a pain (even some of my most expensive brushes do!). These don’t!!

I wanted to try out the Adofee Waterproof Cream Eyeliner. The packaging and product is very similar to the Maybelline Cream Liner and it comes with a portable brush (very handy!). The size and tapered flat edge worked well to give the perfect eyeliner flick but the liner wasn’t as waterproof as I had hoped.

It lasted a good 10-12 hrs but was a bit smudged by the end of the day. I would still carry on using it as its great value and the colour is very deep black. 

Here I am using the Born Pretty Brushes and Eyeliner in my everyday makeup routine. I will be using these products for myself and my clients!

The finished look. Ta-Da!!
