A childhood interest for art and design grew into a passion for all things beauty. Currently, I’m still smitten.

It's that time of year again...The holiday brush sets from MAC COSMETICS are in stores now! 

The Essential Brush Kit has all the basics for beauty in a super cute zippered pouch...the 190 Foundation Brush, 129 Powder/Blush Brush, 275 Medium Angled Shading Brush, 266 Small Angle Brush (my favorite for liner and defining brows) and the 226 Small Tapered Blending Brush.

The Mineralize Brush Kit ideally has all the tools you need to give good face...with mini versions of the 187 duo Fibre Brush (great for powder blush or liquid foundation),130 Short Duo Fibre Brush, 286 Duo Fibre Tapered Brush and the 282 Duo Fibre Shader Brush.  Housed in an oblong zippered bag with two compartments and each brush is the perfect shade of peach to match.

Finally, The Advanced Brush Kit delivers professional results with 167 Bronzer Brush, 168 Large Angled Contour Brush, 239 Eye Shader Brush, 217 Blending Brush and 212 Flat Definer Brush.  The pretty pink set is the perfect size to keep in your bag for every day.

We all know how much individual brushes cost.  So take advantage of this deal of $49.50 for each set that comes with the makeup case.  Get it at MAC or NORDSTROM Stores.


Nordstrom Exclusive: The Pouch Brush Set

NORDSTROM’s Pouch Brush Set features an assortment of brushes that comes with a sleek little quilted pouch. There’s a brush for all your basic application needs. The set includes seven synthetic brushes: face, blush, foundation, concealer, two shadow brushes and an angled eyeliner brush (for winged liner or defined brows).

Buying each one could cost over $100 if purchased separately. These brushes are soft, durable and travel friendly. Preserve your brushes with regular cleanings! At least once a week, use a gentle brush cleaner or warm soapy water (Dawn dishwashing liquid works per celebrity makeup artist, Sam Fine) to avoid shedding and built-up bacteria. The skunky black and white bristles conveniently show how well you clean each one. Not bad for $35/NORDSTROM exclusive.
