I think some addictions are handed down, or even genetic. If you read this blog you are probably a bit of a cosmetics junkie, which means your mom just might be too…and if that’s the case, you’ll want to get her something really cool from the cosmetics world for Mother’s Day. My suggestion? An Artis makeup brush.
I was definitely intimidated by the Artis brushes at first. I didn’t even want to try them because they looked so professional, so arty, so cool…way too cool for me. But then I read Olivia’s posts about these brushes on The Unknown Beauty Blog and my curiosity grew larger than my insecurities.
I’ve only tried one of the brushes, the Elite Collection Smoke Finish Linear 1 Brush ($35). All I have to say is OH EM GEE. This is a freaking fantastic brush! The rubberized handle is substantial and is ergonomically perfect for your hand. The brush is firm but soft, so it creates a PERFECT smokey line with no drag and no painful friction. It lines upper and lower lids with ease. I also love it for my brows – I just use an eyeshadow that is one shade lighter than my brows, and the brush gives such a beautiful blend while also brushing brows upward. If that isn’t awesome enough, it’s a fantastic lip brush too. This brush does everything but wash windows.
I am asking for every single other Artis brush for Mother’s Day now. I know your mom will love this one, and you will too, so do a ‘one for you, one for me’ thing and you will be thanking me for years to come. – Lisa
