Festive Essentials; Why Make-up Brushes Make Great Gifts

As far as the average woman or teenage girl goes, we don’t often choose to replace and re-stock on make-up tools as regularly as we should. Some how good quality brushes are somewhat of a luxury, with many of us assuming we would have to part with lots of hard earned cash to have the privilege of owning a top quality set.

This how ever is not the case, but this is also why make-up brushes and sets make a fab gift, they look and feel luxurious, like a proper treat and something to really feel excited about. They can be chosen carefully especially for the person depending on the make-up they love to wear, and the looks they choose to create for themselves.

Make-up brushes and sets offer a great personable gift, that you can customise and put together to suit the person you are buying for. Whether you’re looking for stocking fillers, or to build a whole set for an impressive Christmas gift, Nanshy has all the products you need to create a stunning present this Christmas.

Stocking fillers…

Stocking fillers should be brush essentials, or novelty accessories. Make-up brushes and tools are a great way to add some luxury to a stocking, both practical and fun, here are my top pick of stocking filler make-up tools:

The pink Kabuki brush is a make-up kit essential, and in a bright pink finish it’s a little bit fun too. Great for applying all types of powder make-up, this brush is particularly great for sealing your make-up with a translucent powder, evenly distributing it all over the face.

Research shows that many women haven’t experimented with foundation brushes, instead opting to apply foundation with their fingers instead, whilst this is fine, using a foundation brush will create an airbrush finish, great for special occasions and when there’s a camera out. Introduce your friend/daughter/mum etc. to a new way to apply foundation with the flawless foundation brush.

Sensational Sets…

Make-up brush sets make gift buying easy, with already prepared sets of brushes that compliment one another, for flawless make-up application. Sets make a lovely gift that’s fuss free. Here are my favourite Nanshy sets:

The Nanshy Luxury Make-up Brush Set is a great set to start with, particularly if the person you’re buying for is a make-up and beauty fanatic. Featuring 13 eye, lip and face brushes, this set contains everything anyone would need to create a flawless make-up look from start to finish. Each brush features a white handle with white bristles fading into black.

If you know someone who loves a natural make-up look, the Gobsmack Glamorous Onyx Black Face Make-up Brush Set includes everything you’ll need to build a perfect base. Created to work towards brightening the complexion, building a flawless airbrushed foundation base, applying powder, blusher and bronzer and concealing imperfections, this is the ideal set for a flawless ‘barely there’ make-up look.

Building your own Set…

Create your own make-up set by mixing and matching brushes from our collection. Choose the brushes you know the person you’re buying for will love, picking the brushes you know they will use and benefit from, and in the colours and styles you know will suit them best.

To build a complete set I would recommend: A concealer brush, a foundation brush, a blush and bronze brush, a foundation sponge, a large powder brush, a blending eye-shadow brush, an eye crease brush, a bent eye-liner brush and a lip brush.

If you want to make your gift extra special think about adding in a make-up brush holder too, to keep brushes neat and safe.

All of the above are available on the Nanshy website, in sets and sold separately. All the Nanshy brushes are fantastic quality, but at an affordable price, as well as being vegan so you can rest assure no animals were harmed in the production.

Tie up with a beautiful bow or wrap in some festive paper and you’ll have a gift to be proud of.
