Everyone knows that a flawless makeup application is reliant on the tools – BRUSHES! These brushes from AYU will definitely assist in an impeccable appearance 🙂 .
AYU is an Irish company that specializes in makeup brushes. The company is owned by the amazing makeup artist Suzanne O’Neill (who I am utterly obsessed with on snapchat 🙂 ) and her sister Laura. Suzanne is a pro in the industry so she knows what works and what doesn’t – hence the amazing brushes.
I have been using the brushes daily since I received them. I have the travel set which contains five staple brushes – I could complete my entire makeup routine just using these five gems. The travel set is extremely convenient, just pop the pouch in your bag and go 🙂 .
AYU Blush/Contour brush
When I first started contouring, I looked like I was going to a fancy dress party as a red Indian 🙁 this was purely because I didn’t have the right brushes. Thankfully, this has changed somewhat 🙂 . This brush makes contouring extremely easy. It applies the product perfectly in the hollows of the cheeks. With a brush like this we have no excuse not to have cheekbones like Kim K 😉 .
AYU Blender brush
Blending brushes dominate my makeup bag – personally, I think you can never have enough of these. This AYU blender is phenomenal, it fits perfectly into the eye socket and blends the eye makeup beautifully. I have used this with powder to set under my eyes and it also worked like a dream. Now you can see why I adore blending brushes – flexibility!!!!!!!
AYU Buffer brush
I love full coverage and this brush creates just that! I use it with the Cailyn HD Foundation and it leaves a flawless finish. I use it everyday and it has definitely changed me from a flat foundation brush devotee. I like how it can create an unblemished finish with powder, cream AND liquid products – once again, multi-purpose 😉 .
AYU Eyeliner brush
I use this beauty to apply my gel eye-liner on both my water-line and lash-line. The sharp angle provides a sharp finish so I don’t result in looking like a raccoon. This brush is so small so it isn’t tricky to work with – it will suit pros and novices alike.
AYU Pro Blender brush
This is another brush with extensive uses 🙂 . I use it to apply shadow directly to my lid, but it can also be used for blending and crease application. I especially love it for days when I’m in a rush (everyday) just to sweep a colour over my lid. Practical and pretty 🙂 .
These brushes are brilliant quality and extremely affordable. I’s also great to be supporting Irish brands in the beauty world. I’d definitely recommend having a snoop 🙂 .
