Probably one of the most fun thing in beauty these days are the relationship between pop culture and our makeup.
As much as I love makeup to be packaged in sleek, timeless packaging, a little bit of fun in our makeup never hurt anybody! It’s like the grown up girls’ version of our favourite things growing up.
So I’m totally with the explosion of all things rainbow, unicorns and mermaid in the makeup world.
Especially mermaid brushes.
I used to be obsessed with Ariel from The Little Mermaid as a kid and would always want to be a mermaid (anyone else used to swim in the swimming pools with their legs crossed, as if you had a mermaid tail?)
These Mermaid Makeup brushes, $19.99 from Style Candies are the cutest ever – bright, shimmery, colourful… it’s sure to attention wherever you apply (or reapply) your makeup. I chose the rainbow ones because they are the most fun, but there are many other color combos and also single colors if that’s your thing.
The StyleCandies mermaid makeup brushes are actually more shimmery and beautiful in person, with glittered, 3D-ish handles, and the bristles are extremely soft. My favorite of the set has to be the slanted contour and flat foundation brush, they are sturdy enough to apply enough product – I hate it when a brush is so flimsy you can barely apply any product on your face, because the brush hardly picks up any product. Not the case with these ones. Fun, pretty and functional. Also quite affordable! I think it’ll make great greats as well; and best of all, the collection is vegan and cruelty free. The shop also offers free shipping worldwide.
There are also many other type of gorgeous makeup brush sets at StyleCandies, if mermaids are not your thing, they are beautiful diamond, psychedelic and metallic coloured makeup brush sets!
