My makeup kit is a beautiful mess. Up until recently, my makeup brushes were too. I’m a pretty thrifty gal and I tend to use everything up until every last bit is gone. Sometimes that means things are falling apart before I replace them. Take my blush for instance. It’s a classic Estee Lauder compact that I love and bought two years ago now. It was a splurge and it’s lasted, but now it’s falling apart and there’s coral blush powder everywhere. Not unlike my makeup brushes.
I figured spring was a good time to give my makeup bag an eco-makeover. EcoTools, a leading line of beauty accessories, is known for its super-soft makeup brush bristles and its socially responsible products. Each makeup brush is made with sustainable bamboo, recycled aluminum and cruelty-free bristles. All packaging is made with 80% post-consumer recycled materials, and is 100% recyclable! EcoTools makes looking and living beautifully easier than ever!
Each of the brushes works incredibly well and the packaging is amazingly cute and ecofriendly too. The packaging is 100% tree-free paper and 100% recyclable made from 80% bamboo and 20% cotton fiber.
A few months ago I got some brand new blush and lip pencils here too. Trying new shades and brands of makeup every season is a treat for me, and for my daughters too actually. My girls are now 12 and 14 so when they spied these EcoTools makeup brushes and the pretty green reusable packaging they were a bit green with envy. I am over the moon with the travel set. It’s ideal for my upcoming travel writing trip to Florida.
EcoTools bronzing and blending brush is made from soft, cruelty free, bristles and has a recycled aluminum ferrule with bamboo handle. It will be perfect for the summery months and should help me achieve a sun kissed look without indulging in too much sun. Sweep powder and bronzer where the sun would naturally hit your face and add a healthy glow.
The Six piece starter set is likely to find a home with my teenager because she can use it now and it will be a clean set of good brushes for the plays she does. Tarzan is coming up at Spriet Family Theatre by the way. The starter set has five beautiful brushes and includes a concealer brush, an eye shading brush, an angled liner brush, a lash and brow groomer and a blush brush. Some of the packages include how to guides inside the wrap around package so you can try to duplicate the look.
By the way did you know you should clean your brushes regularly? EcoTools.com has all of these brushes and more, plus they also have makeup brush cleansing cloths and makeup brush shampoo. I used to be better at cleaning my brushes when I was a teenager. But this gorgeous new set gives me inspiration to keep this lovely set pristine. And did I mention that these EcoTools sets are very affordable. I love that. The big powder brush is only $7.99.
In celebration of Spring I want to help one of my readers to make over their makeup brushes too.
