  • FEED YOUR BRUSH CRUSH – BUYING MAKEUP BRUSHES ON A BUDGET

    Being a mom on a budget the Famous Five 5-piece brush set is like a dream come true. The set offers good-quality makeup brushes within my budget. To me this is just a starter kit and I already have my eye on other brushes with a much higher price tag. A girl can dream right!

    To be honest I have always loved makeup, but always played it safe when applying it. I never used to go for bold looks, and usually stuck to the nudes. I think it was about two years ago when I woke up from this colourless life and decided to add some colour to my world!J I even opt for a red lip at times, but it must be matte. I am not brave enough for high shine yet….baby steps please! LOL

    At R240, this Urban Beauty United – (UBU) Famous Five Brush Kit contains an eye defining brush, a powder brush, a foundation brush, a concealer brush, and a tapered blending brush, to give you a finished look that’s flawless. The brushes are very affordable and lets not forget the fact that they would look great on any dressing table too with the rose gold accent that looks amazing with hot pink bristles!

    Being in love with makeup for as long as I can remember, and watching countless Youtube videos on how to create different makeup looks. I have discovered using my hands really does not cut it anymore. It might have worked back when I was only a BB cream and powder girl. The makeup tutorials have taught me that using the correct brushes is an essential part of creating a flawless look.If you know of any other good-quality budget friendly brushes let me know in the comments below.

    Visit UBU for more information on the full Urban Beauty United product range.

    Lots of love
