I love using good quality makeup brushes as they can make such a difference to your makeup and I featured the Tina Earnshaw Crease and Eye Smoother Brush back in September and I have a couple more from the Tina Earnshaw Brush Collection which can all be purchased from PAM London. If you’re new to the Tina Earnshaw brushes, Tina Earnshaw is a professional makeup artist and has worked with some of the biggest names within the film industry.
In addition to her makeup artistry work, Tina Earnshaw also ran a successful makeup school in the USA and will soon be launching Tina Earnshaw Pop-Up Makeup Schools in the UK. The two newest brushes in my collection are; Tina Earnshaw Small Eyeliner Brush £12 and Eye Blender Brush £28.
Tina Earnshaw Small Eyeliner Brush #6
This is one of the smallest eyeliner brushes I’ve ever used and I couldn’t wait to try it as I’ve been on the hunt for a super fine liner brush for when I use my gel eyeliner. The Small Eyeliner Brush is said to offer maximum control which I’d agree with completely as you can draw the most precise and even line and/or wing very easily.
The bristles are crafted from pure Kalinsky Sable and they are soft, but a few of the bristles got damaged in transit so I think they should come with a plastic brush guard on them when they leave the manufacturer’s warehouse to protect the precious bristles, especially when they’re as pricy as these brushes. This is without a doubt the best super fine liner brush I’ve tried and just like all of the Tina Earnshaw brushes, this Eyeliner Brush has a black wooden lacquered handle, and black shiny ferrule which looks really sleek.
Tina Earnshaw Eye Blender Brush #16
This brush has been handcrafted with pure Kalinsky sable bristles for the most delicate of fibres for precise shadow application. The bristles are quite flat, but rounded in shape so it’s ideal for applying shadow especially cream shadows or foiled shadows as it allows you to press shadow onto the lids, and natural bristles like these are the most effective and I don’t experience very much fallout when using this brush.
Due to how flat and small this brush is, it also lends itself well for blending shadows along the lashline but my favourite use is for applying cream eyeshadows onto the lid as fluffy brushes can sheer the shadows out but this helps to keep the colour as intense as possible. The price of this brush is a little ‘ouch’ at £28, but there’s no denying it’s a very professional makeup brush.
