While most makeup artist brands the world over seem content to stick with basic uniform black brushes, ultra girlie new boutique beauty brand Di Kennedy Studio Colour has introduced its newest set complete with signature pink handle.
"Make up is about colour, creative expression and fun, as well as a celebration of femininity. All of my bushes are specifically designed to create contemporary make up looks. Natural hair for powder brushes (shadow, blush) picks up just the right amount of product, and released it where you want, as much as you want. The brushes that are used for cremes and liquids (foundation, primer, lips and concealer) are designed using taklon, (nylon silk) which has a non-porous surface to the fibre (unlike the natural hairs which have a huge surface are to volume ratio - which is what makes then perfect for powder). This makes taklon brushes perfect for picking up and releasing cremes and liquids without "drinking" the product - like a sponge or natural-hair brush does. It also makes them perfect for constant washing, which is required.
I felt that it was necessary to make a personal set that was fun, and reflected my philosophy of professional quality that was ultra girlie. We spend enough time being conformist and serious.
A good set of brushes will last years with proper care, and make a huge difference to the looks you can achieve quickly. Applicators that come with some make up make it impossible to "get the look". Women are getting savvy to this. Just as an investment in accessories (shoes, bags etc) "lifts" your look, make up brushes of this quality give a woman a polished, "who is her stylist" appearance.
For those new to professional brush application, each brush handle is clearly labelled, and the set comes in a soft faux-leather pouch to keep them in top condition. The pink DKSC signature brush set fits neatly into this season's cute tote-style bags and will turn heads at touch-up time.
The DKSC signature brush set is available to purchase through selected stockists and online at www.dikennedycosmetics.com
for $110 rrp.
