In my opinion every girl needs a good set of make-up brushes. Until you own a set you have no idea what a difference they can make to your make-up application. I recently was thrilled to receive a set of foundation brushes and blending sponges from a brand out of the UK called, Nanshy.

They arrived at the perfect time because I’ve had tons of events lately where I was going to be photographed and I wanted my make-up to look just right. As soon as I started using them I fell in love! I could immediately tell they were top quality and was impressed that they were vegan and 100% cruelty free. But the best part came when I started using them. They are so soft and leave a perfect finish on your face.

IMG_8180-2866116509-O The foundation brush set is really not JUST for foundation. They are for a variety of usages. The set includes the following: Angled Buffer Brush, Flat Angled Buffer Brush, Pointed Brush, Flat Top Buffer Brush, Round Buffer Brush. Not sure what each of these are for? Keep reading…


Angled Buffer Brush: Use for applying bronzer or blush to cheekbones to create a narrower face effect.

Flat Angled Buffer Brush: Apply, distribute and blend your base with precision.

Pointed Brush: Perfect for applying concealer, moisturizer and foundation to specific areas of your face.

Flat Top Buffer Brush: Utilize for powders, blushes and bronzers.

Round Buffer Brush: Excellent for all types of foundations.


The other thing I liked about the brushes is they were very easy to clean. I usually use a bit of shampoo to clean mine so that they are not damaged. I want to emphasize how important it is to take care of your brushes so they stay as good as new!


Their design is so pretty with beautiful pearl colored handles! You can look like a professional make-up artist with them AND have make-up like one as well!

IMG_8216-2866123742-OI had actually never heard of a blending sponge before but I will never go without one again! It really helps to make a flawless finish! Not quite sure how to use a blending sponge? That’s ok – Nanshy has a great blog post to help you (click here).

  22. mary

    I always struggle to blend my foundation correctly and because of the low quality brushes I used, I would often apply too much makeup that simply did not look good. I used to have acne, and now have scars and I never knew that the brushes I use could help make my skin look flawless again. I would love to win the brushes and learn how to apply my makeup so I feel and look beautiful!
