I pride myself on having a very clean and smooth blending technique when it comes to make-up and I am often asked what brush set I use. (These days though it seems I do better make-up on other people compared to myself hahaha.)
During the entire duration of my professional make-up artistry course in HD Studio, I used the Charm Pro Makeup Brush Set which I got from my friend and fellow blogger Sophie (did I mention she’s an extremely talented make-up artist too?). I love the convenient and foldable leather case since it’s just like toting around a purse.

To be honest, so far I’ve use around a dozen or so because I usually stick to my favorites when doing make-up.
It’s my first time to own a Stippling Brush. You usually use this to even out the blending of foundation so there are no visible lines.
These two are my favorite brushes for eyeshadows. I use the one on the right to apply and the one on the left to blend.
I used those two brushes to blend three shades of eyeshadow (black, gray, and silver) for this Sucker Punch inspired look. More on this FOTD on a future post, for now I’ll stick to talking about the Charm brushes.
Then I used the Angled Liner Brush to create a dramatic cat’s eye. This brush makes it easy to apply gel eyeliner.
I also used the same angled eyeliner brush to draw these Avant Garde patterns on my model.
This is the spoolie. I don’t use it for eyelashes though as I have disposable wands for that. I use it to brush up eyebrows when I’m shaping and grooming them. This is also good for blending eyebrow pencil or powder.
It’s my first time to own a Fan Brush too! One side got um… disheveled because of the Spoolie but it’s nothing a good shampooing won’t fix, hehe. I use the fan brush to sweep away powder fall off, strands of hair when I’m cleaning up the brow area, and dusting the face lightly.
A Charm Pro Makeup Brush Set costs P3,450. It’s available at http://www.beautyandminerals.com, PureBeauty in Serendra, and Crossings The Ramp at Shangri-la Plaza Mall.
