AYU brush set – REVIEW!

Everyone knows that a flawless makeup application is reliant on the tools – BRUSHES! These brushes from AYU will definitely assist in an impeccable appearance ๐Ÿ™‚ .

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ ) and her sister Laura. Suzanne is a pro in the industry so she knows what works and what doesn’t – hence the amazingย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ .

AYU Blush/Contour brushย 

When I first started contouring, I looked like I was going to a fancy dress party as a red Indian ๐Ÿ™ this was purely because I didn’t have the right brushes. Thankfully, this has changed somewhat ๐Ÿ™‚ . 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ .


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 loveย 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ .


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 brushย 

This is another brush with extensive uses ๐Ÿ™‚ . 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ .


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 ๐Ÿ™‚ .
