Can you believe it’s already mid-April 2013? Time is really flying by!
Last month, the winner of my Real Techniques starter brush set by Samantha Chapman was Ms. Steffi Mindorff. Yay! Congratulations!
If you entered the giveaway draw but didn’t win, you might recall me mentioning that I’ll be giving away 2 brush sets! So this is your chance to join the contest again, or for the first time for a chance to win the Real Techniques on location Travel Essentials brush set.
“Everything you need to create flawless looks at home and away”
Includes 3 full-size brushes + case: Look pixel-perfect even in harsh light with…
An essential foundation brush: Build flawless custom coverage with liquid foundation or concealer; A multi-task brush: for effortless application of powder, blush, and bronzer; A domed shadow brush: tapered design smoothly shades and defines eyes and … A panoramic brush case is a 2-in-1 case + stand. The ultra-plush, synthetic taklon bristles are hand-cut and 100% cruelty-free. Extended aluminum handles are light and easy to use. (And I love the colorful handles in pink, purple and yellow gold). With all the available brushes from retailers like MAC, Sephora, SDM and online, it is easy to get yourself a good set of 5-12 brushes for personal use. Pros can use up many more tools, just because we need to wash them more often (between each usage). There are some great cruelty-free makeup tools available. Synthetic brushes are no longer inferior to natural hair brushes as long as they’ve been made well like these, by Samantha Chapman, of YouTube @Pixiwoo guru fame! What are you waiting for? If you’re in Canada and 16yrs old or older – go ahead and enter. The winner will be drawn on April 30th at 6pm ET and the Travel Essentials brush set will be in your hands within a week from then. If you have any questions about brushes and makeup in general, drop me a line by completing a contact form (on the top right sidebar) or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be glad to answer your questions. All the best!
