Tools of the Trade

By on October 8, 2012, in Soft Surroundings

You’ve probably got fantastic makeup, but if you don’t have equally fantastic tools, you won’t reap all of your products’ beauty benefits. Although often underestimated, a set of high quality brushes is essential, and as any professional makeup artist knows, the expert touch of a brush can make the difference between so-so and sublime makeup application.

Brushes are one of the key elements to creating a flawless face, allowing you to apply product smoothly and evenly as well as highlight, sculpt and soften features to perfection. Unlike sponges, brushes don’t absorb your makeup and also don’t create an unwanted environment of bacteria and excess

You can discover the beautiful potential of quality brushes and the magic of makeup artistry with Jane Iredale’s essential, high-performance collection to bring out your beauty with the confidence of a pro.

Inspired by the daily demands of the modern makeup artist, these brushes are designed to be both effective and gentle. Composed from the finest natural fibers in a myriad of sculpted brush shapes means you’ll get the most out of these versatile brushes.

Included in this collection are essentials that you’ll find in every professional makeup artist’s tool box:

Foundation brush: The “foundation” of any great makeup brush collection, this chiseled Foundation Brush is designed for the application of liquid foundations, including Jane Iredale’s Liquid Minerals. It also works well with cream blush, and allows application to difficult parts of the face such as the nose area and inner corner of the eye.

Concealer brush: A must-have! The Camouflage Brush is the perfect tool to use with cream-based products to flawlessly disguise blemishes and blotches.

Fan brush: We’re huge “fans” of this multipurpose brush. The White Fan Brush is a flat, white brush with a long handle that can be used to evenly apply highlighter, loose or pressed powder, bronzer, blush – you name it. It’s also handy to lightly lift away any excess eyeshadow that may have fallen during application without disturbing makeup.

Eye Shader brush: This type of soft, flat brush is essential for eyeshadow application. Use the Eye Shader Brush to apply a medium shade on the eye lid and to build color to your desired intensity.

Crease brush: This brush is designed to fit into the crease of the eye, resulting in a perfectly blended shadow. Shaped like a small dome with a point, the Crease Brush harmonizes your color palette and finesses your eye makeup artistry.

Your face is a canvas of beautiful potential – bring out your best using the right tools. With the touch of a brush, you’ll be able to create exquisite results!

    This is my first time hearing of Soft Surroundings. I just received your catalog and wanted to try a few things to see what its like. I’m surprised that my bill was over $300.00. That means I must have liked a lot of things. Hope this doesn’t become a habit for me because my pocket book will cry!
    Thank you,

    This may not be the proper place to write this but it was the only avenue I could find. I bought a pair of pants from your catalogue. I liked them a lot but when I washed them according to the directions on the label – they shrunk. Now they are too short for me. I probably will not buy anything again.
