How The Right Brushes Can Completely Change Your Look

We’ve all been there - we’ve found our perfect foundation, dream blush, a foolproof eyeliner or expert-recommended eye shadow, but despite our best efforts we just can’t get the products to sit quite right on the skin. More often than not, the secret to the perfect finish comes down to your toolkit. If you’re using the incorrect brushes for the products you’re using and the look you’re trying to achieve, you’ll find yourself fighting an uphill battle.

Our entire makeup brushes collection has been redesigned using luxuriously soft, synthetic brush hairs to deliver the best payoff and coverage. To make your life (and your makeup application!) so much easier, we have curated four Limited Edition Brush Kits, each pulled together with your needs in mind.

jane iredale Complexion Brush Kit


For a flawless complexion

Complexion perfection comes down to the right tools, and you’ll find them all in the jane iredale Complexion Brush Kit. To truly control your foundation, use the Foundation Brush to paint on your foundation and build up your coverage - we have redesigned the classic Foundation Brush with a narrower profile and shorter bristles for your most controlled foundation application ever. The Handi Brush will allow for flawless application of powder foundations, while the Chisel Powder Brush is designed for controlled application of loose powder foundations and setting powders. Master your base with the new Blending and Contouring Brush to blend out any brush strokes and subtly sculpt the face.

jane iredale Blush & Bronzer Brush Kit


For glowing skin and sculpted cheeks

The Blush & Bronzer Brush Kit is designed to enhance and sculpt your features, allowing you to contour and highlight like a professional makeup artist. Use the brand new Contour Brush to seriously define your cheekbones, or choose the Dome Brush for a more subtle powder contour. Apply your blush to the apples of the cheeks then blend slightly upwards to lift the face using the Blending and Contouring Brush, then dust your cheekbones and brow bone with a glistening, light reflecting highlighter using the White Fan Brush.

jane iredale Brows & Liner Brush Kit


For precision liner and enviable brows 

Mastering eyeliner and eyebrow product application is a common source of beauty anxiety, but the jane iredale Brow & Liner Brush Kit makes the process foolproof. The Bent Liner brush allows for the finest application of liquid and gel liners, while the Angle Liner/Brow Brush allows you to work as close as possible to the lash line and create natural looking, feather light strokes along the eyebrows. The Eyeliner/Brow Brush is another failsafe eyelining tool, with one end lending itself to precision liner application and the other working to smudge your products for a worn-in, sultry look. The Detail Brush is perfect for creating a slightly thicker line and the Smudge Brush is your essential tool for a classic smokey eye. Complete your look using the Deluxe Spoolie to brush the brows up and out to give your face a youthful finish.

jane iredale Eye Shadow Brush Kit


For professionally blended eye shadow

The eye area is delicate, so to really get the most out of your eye shadows and work within the constraints of the eyelid, you need the right set of tools - enter the jane iredale Eye Shadow Brush Kit. The freshly redesigned Large Shader Brush is the largest brush in the kit, allowing you to apply a base colour to the entire lid and pick up the most pigment possible for added intensity. The slightly smaller Eye Shader Brush is perfect for applying eye shadow below the crease of the eyelid, while the even smaller Deluxe Shader Brush allows for even more precise application and soft shading - we love using this to add depth to the outer third of the eyes, as this newly redesigned brush is perfect for clean, precise application of eye shadows. The Chisel Shader is a must-have for seriously packing on the pigment (the firm, dense bristles make this perfect for picking up shimmer pigments without fallout), and the Eye Contour Brush will make the seemingly difficult “cut crease” seem like a walk in the park. Blending is the most important step in any eyeshadow look, be it smokey or natural, so spend some time blending your look together with the newly designed Crease Brush which now has a more bulbous mid-section and tapered tip making it perfect to blend back and forth through the crease of the eyelid. A touch of eyeliner can tie your entire look together, so opt for the Smudge Brush to blend your liner into your lash line for the perfect smokey eye.
