Vueset Containers

My bathroom counter was a mess!  So I thought I would use the Vueset containers because I could not find half of my brushes and items in the morning. I saw a lot of posts with the Vueset containers on Instagram and thought hmmm I need that. So I dug out my Vueset containers and began my organizing.  I used the Star Nova ones for my brushes, pencils, lip pencils and shadows that I use basically everyday. But what I found is that they wereVueset container a bit too shallow. So I posted on Instagram and Vueset responded they had new one that was deeper. So I bought the Bananaman one (cost 22.00) dimensions 9 x 4.5 x 1.25. It holds a lot of brushes and does hold the Artis Brushes, but it does smooth the oval 7 a bit.

So far I do like using The Vueset containers for organizing. I do use the Star Nova for my eyeshadows. They fit a 3 gm jar, the 5 gm jar it a bit too tall, the top does not close. This was a good choice for me for when I have a new color collection, they are all in one place so I can test them out.

Here are my Vueset containers that I use, it does help me find things in the morning. All in all the Vueset Containers are a great option for organizing your bathroom or your kit if you are a Makeup Artist or just like things in order!

Artis Brushes

We are going to review the Artis Brushes, I was talking with some makeup artists that use Artis Brushes  and a lot like them. I have seen Artis Brushes and thought they were kind of nice and different. They looked sort of hard to use. So after talking to some makeup artists that use them I thought I would give it a try.  Well let me tell you they are wonderful! The Artis Brushes do have a bit of a learning curve to them. My favorite one is the Oval 6, if you want a smooth foundation application this is the brush for you. I have tried the Oval 6 with loose minerals, cream and liquid foundations and work beautifully with all of them.  I also have the Linear 1 and the Oval 3, The Oval 3 I use for shadow and you only need  a little shadow for this brush to give you a smooth finish basically in one swipe.  I am still trying to learn the Linear 1 for lining, when I get it to work it does give a perfect line again in one swipe. I can only get the line to go from the middle of my eye to the outer edge, still cannot master the inner most of the eye.  You do have to use their cleaner and brush cleaning pad for these.

I does come with the cleaner and cleaning pad which was a plus. Why is it different: Artis brushes are made with CosmeFibre, a revolutionary engineered fiber made for applying cosmetic and makeup products. Designed to make it easier to apply makeup, the brushes have a familiar ergonomic configuration.

How do I use it: The Linear 1 has a very narrow (about 1mm to 2mm) row of fibers to help concentrate product application in a line, such as along the lash line. This brush can apply a precise line of product along the upper lash line or tucked under the lower lash line. It can also be used to fill in and define the brows and can simulate brow hair lines; or can be used to apply a defined line along the lip or any other part of the face. The Linear 1 brush is very helpful for special effects makeup to create crisp lines and linear shapes.

The Oval 3 assists in shading and blending the products applied to the outside and inside corners of the eye lid and smaller areas of the eyelid. This brush is also useful for applying foundation or concealer to the inside corner area of the eye or on the side of nose by the nostrils.

The Oval 6 is great for applying product to the entire eye lid, foundation to the face, or contouring the cheekbone area. This brush applies blush beautifully to the apple of the cheek and blends it so that the application looks natural.

If you are looking for a great flawless foundation application you have to try at least the Oval 6.
