For my Angled Eyeliner Brush, I chose synthetic bristles. They are much easier to clean and have a faster drying time. Moreover the synthetic bristles prevent bacteria build up. This precision brush can be used with wet or dry products. It rinses off easily. My slanted brush is pointy and firm, which makes products easy to apply because it can be held at any angle. You can create professional and precise lines with this wonderful brush. 



Makeup Brushes by Angelina Hart - Angled Shadow Brush

Angled Shadow Brush

 For my Angled Shadow Brush, these hand made natural bristles gather your shadow and contain it within the bristles during application for less fall out and waste. Apply eye shadow all over the eye area with light brush strokes. To create a softer look, apply the shadow just on the eyelid. The natural bristles will blend your loos or pressed shadows, and the soft bristles will give you a beautiful, even finish.

The comb side separates eyelashes and removes mascara clumps after application. You can also use it on your brows to give them a beautiful polished look. This is an essential brush in my collection. 


Makeup Brushes by Angelina Hart - Eyelash Brush

Eyelash Brush

In the professional makeup world, it is essential to have an eyelash brush to separate clumpy mascara. And we all desire professional results. Before your mascara dries, gently comb your eyelashes through to keep them separated. Repeat this process after your mascara has dried and you'll be ready for your close up.

Professional results are all about getting the details right. And to get the details right, you need professional level tools. For my Eyeliner Brush, I created a thin top for exact line drawing. You can draw your lines as thin strokes until you get the line you want. It works best for cream, gel and liquid eyeliners. The small top allows for a perfect and precise line.

Why 27 Makeup Brushes?

For years I, like you, purchased brushes individually and thought it would be nice if someone put all these together so I could make one purchase and have exactly what I needed. The sets that are available tend to be very low quality, lack any professional input in their execution, don't last very long and are not very pretty! 

Professional Brushes You Can Use Everyday

After extensive research and development my set was complete. I am so happy to share my brushes with you. I hope you'll appreciate the beautiful pearl white finish matched to the glamour of the gold ferrules. They are unique in that they are complete set, are pretty and elegant and are truly professional grade makeup brushes you can use everyday. I hope you enjoy them!
