This time last year I gave in my notice at Bare Minerals and prepared to hang up my brush belt and return to office life. Whilst I hated the first office I worked in I’m now very happy at Debenhams Head Office but I really do miss my brush belt and working with make up. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw this Nanshy Brush Belt at Pro Beauty for the bargain price of just £10, instead of it’s retail price of £25.
I’m sure you’re all thinking if you’re no longer a make up artist what on earth do you need a brush belt for? And the answer is simply because I love playing with make up, and it’s a handy way to store and carry your brushes. I didn’t have the best make up training so I had to rely on tips from friends, watching YouTube tutorials and making everyone my guinea pigs.
Whenever I go to do my make up I always have a pile of make up brushes lying around, and I even manage to put one down and then it disappears and I have to hunt for it. Tell me I’m not alone in this! Wearing a make up belt takes me back to my days on counter and I instantly feel more confident and professional in myself. And how beautiful do my Spectrum brushes look in there!
I love the design of this brush belt, how it’s so simple with the quilted faux leather and the delicate silver studs give it that little something to make it pop. This fits over 30 brushes plus has room for other beauty tools, and I can’t wait to try it out for the first time when I do my sister’s make up for the prom in a couple of weeks. Until them I’m always on the lookout for some new guinea pigs to practice make up on, specifically eye make up. Last year I finally mastered the smokey eye, which Timehop was nice enough to remind me of the other day, but I’m always looking to keep up what I do know and experimenting with other colours and looks.
