You would be forgiven in thinking that this post is going to be about Stobo Castle, but no it is instead a post on a make-up brush I purchased while I was there this year. This guy here -
I hadn't heard of the brand Mii before as it seems to be only available in salons, but they have a website you can view here. They also have hand little tutorial videos, which let's face it are always fun!
When I was training to become a make up artist at the very wonderful Academy of Make-Up (if you fancy a career in make up, the courses they offer are amazing - not to mention the aftercare programme which is fab), I became obsessed with foundation brushes. I don't think I had fully appreciated, the different finishes you can achieve from different brushes. My favourite brush that I used during my time at The Academy of Make-up was a buffing brush to smooth over foundation. While this brush from Mii isn't a buffing brush per se it does provide a bit more buffing than a flat foundation brush. I would say that this brush sits happily between the two. I like using this brush when I am rushing to apply my make up - as means everything is blended in rather quickly with no mess. It also has a nice pointed shape, which makes it good for a round about the nose.
I love this brush - it's such an unusual shape, has anyone else got a foundation brush like this? And on another note - how are we pronouncing this? In my head I'm doing a kinda mmmmmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee thing, but I don't think that is right, I think it is very wrong indeed.
