Review of The Face Painting Shop Blending Brushes By Jane Harding
Hi Everyone, So, today I am going to give you my review of The Face Painting Shops ‘Pink Tip’ Large, Medium & Small Blending Brushes.
In all honesty before I had these brushes, it never crossed my mind that they would be a useful set to have in my kit when I’m face painting. I just assumed they were mainly for applying make-up/eye shadow etc. so I completely overlooked them. However, after I attended a couple of classes, I was introduced to them, it opened my eyes and now they are a must have in my OTJ brush collection.
They are fantastic to use with Starblends to add shading and depth to a design, as seen here on my realistic skull. I used the medium blending brush with black starblend to soften the edges of the black areas and I used the small blending brush to add shading around the cracks again with black starblend and also used the small blending brush with DFX White to add subtle highlights.
As mentioned above they are also great to use with paint. I find they work especially well with shimmer colours, to blend around eyes like eye shadow or to add only a very light and subtle colour with soft edges, like I have done here with the pink cheeks of a Hello Kitty design.
If you were to ask me which size to buy first (if you couldn’t buy them in one go) then Id definitely say the Medium Blending Brush, because you’ll probably find it more versatile for doing small and larger areas, but one of the great things about these particular brushes is their value for money, so it’s not going to break the bank to buy all three. I’m sure you know as well as I do that “make-up” brushes can be incredibly expensive but these are only around £5-6 each.
Like I said I use these brushes all the time, every weekend, multiple times and I’ve had the original ones I bought for almost 3 years now and they are still going strong. This makes them even better value for money!
I now have 3 sets of these brushes. One for my Face Painting Kit, One in my Halloween/SFX kit & I have recently added some to my Glitter Bar Kit too, because I found them perfect for applying small amounts of glitter… you know, when someone asks for just a tiny bit on their inner eye or you want to add a small amount of loose glitter between areas of face paint. These are perfect for that!
Versatile – Can be used with Make-Up, Starblends, Face Paint and Applying Glitter
Value for money
Clean very well
Once you have one you’ll want the full set!
I hand on heart say, that these brushes are brilliant and definitely a must have in everyone’s kit.
Until next time!
