I own a pretty large makeup brush collection, and love discovering new brush brands. My newest makeup brush discovery is the Louise Young range of brushes, after I fell in love with the Louise Young Superfine Liner Brush LY24A which is the most incredible eyeliner brush. After being so wowed by my first Louise Young brush, I was dying to try more brushes from the range. The Louise Young Makeup Brush range is very extensive with over 60 brushes within the collection so you really are spoilt for choice. I have been trialing a few more of the Louise Young Eye Brushes, as well as a couple of the Face Brushes and I am seriously impressed…
Louise Young LY48 Mini Super Foundation Brush £19
This is a mini version of the Louise Young Super Foundation Brush, and is said to be perfect for the application of cream and liquid foundations. It can also be used for contouring with cream products, as well as cream blush application. I personally enjoy using this brush to blend in my concealer under my eyes, as the tapered shape is perfect for blending the concealer into the contours of the eyes. It’s a nice stiff brush so it’s dense enough to blend, but the tapered point offers precision for concealing or contouring.
Louise Young LY51 Small Powder and Buffing Brush £20
This brush is now one of my all time favourites.. it’s amazing. The bristles are shaped into almost a square shape with rounded corners and it’s just so incredibly versatile as it can be used with powder, cream or liquid. The brush can be used for blusher, bronzer, contouring, concealing, powdering or even foundation at a push. It’s such a lovely brush, with very soft bristles and it’s such a fantastic multi-tasker.
Louise Young LY38A Tapered Shadow Brush £17
This natural haired eyeshadow brush is a thin, and narrow tapered brush which is absolutely perfect for creating definition within the crease. It’s small enough to be super precise, but it makes light work of blending, and I particularly like using it for blending shadow along my lower lashlines as it’s so tapered and small. If you’re an eyeshadow novice, this is the blending brush for you as it does all of the hard work for you – it’s a real must have.
Louise Young LY31 Angled Brow Sable £13
I’ve seen this brush mentioned on so many YouTube makeup tutorials as the perfect brow brush, and they weren’t wrong. This angled, natural haired brush is thin and very small so you can create thin strokes throughout your brows with powder, gel or cream depending on your preference, but it also works amazingly at lining the eyes with gel liner, or even powder shadow. I really like that the bristles have a little flexibility to them for a more natural effect, as I’ve found denser angled brushes can make my brows look a little too harsh for my liking.
Louise Young LY23 Eyeliner Filbert Sable £9
I already own the LY24A which is a superfine liner brush, but this is a little more tapered in it’s shape with the bristles tapering off to a precise point which is fantastic for creating eyeliner flicks. This brush can be used to apply powder, liquid, gel or cake eyeliner.
Louise Young LY24B Ultrafine Liner Brush £9
I honestly thought the LY24A was the smallest eyeliner brush you could get, but how wrong was I. This LY24B is even smaller. and is super thin for creating the most precise and perfectly even liner and fits nicely between the lashes for added definition. Just like the LY24A, the LY24B is ideal for applying products like the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade as it creates small and delicate hair-like strokes throughout the brow which looks so natural, which is exactly how I like my brows to look.
As you can guess, I’ve been blown away by my new Louise Young Makeup Brushes, and I honestly couldn’t recommend them enough. Each brush is impeccably made, and I’ve never experienced any shedding whatsoever with any of the brushes. They are definitely some of the best brushes I’ve ever tried, and I cannot wait to try more brushes from the range especially some from their Eyeshadow range.
