Glam By Manicare® Professional Cosmetic Brushes
The Glam By Manicare® Pro series is inspired by professional makeup artists with a passion for quality tools that deliver expert results. This series is designed for flawless application thanks to the revolutionary NANO bristles for ultimate softness and superior performance. Each cruelty-free brush is designed to absorb less product, resulting in smooth and even application and less make-up waste over time.
F1. BLENDING FOUNDATION BRUSH
It's all about the base. The Glam by Manicare® Pro F1. Blending Foundation Brush has densely packed ultra-soft NANO bristles which are designed to blend foundation flawlessly with minimal product absorption for an airbrushed, expert finish.
To apply: Apply liquid or cream foundation in circular motions all over the face with the brush, then finish with dabbing motions for a seamless and streak-free result. If you need to, it’s also perfect for buffing in pressed powders after your liquid products.
Beauty tips & tricks: This is a dual-fibre blending brush, so it's designed to sheer out full coverage foundation for a natural, dewy look, but it can also build up your base into full coverage for those days you need to cover up blemishes or pigmentation.
S1. SCULPTING BRUSH
I came, I saw, I contoured. This is the ultimate brush to define and enhance your natural features by adding bone structure using bronzer or darker shades. The Glam by Manicare® Pro S1. Sculpting Brush has curved ultra-soft NANO bristles which are uniquely designed to adapt to facial contours for a professional finish.
To apply: Glide the brush under the cheekbones towards the tip of the nose, then lightly apply remaining colour on the brush under the jaw, along the hairline and on the sides of your nose - then blend blend blend. It can be used with powders or creams!
Beauty tips & tricks: Suck in your cheeks as you apply for the most natural way to define your cheekbones. To achieve a more natural contour, we'd suggest going only two shades darker than your natural colour.
P1. SETTING POWDER BRUSH
Set the stage. The Glam by Manicare® Pro P1. Setting Powder Brush has flat, dome-shaped NANO bristles which are designed to easily glide under the eyes for a buildable application using loose and pressed powder-based products.
To apply: Press the brush onto the powder and gently flick the brush or tap against the side of the pot to remove any excess product. Use gentle sweeping motions for lighter coverage to set under your eyes as well as on cheeks, nose, chin and forehead. You can also use dot and release motions to build coverage and mattify areas prone to oiliness.
Beauty tips & tricks: The dome shape of this brush is perfect for baking under the eyes by applying translucent powder to set foundation and concealer underneath eyes and then lightly dusting off. Setting powder is an essential for oily t-zones and ensuring that your make-up stays in place all day.
H1. HIGHLIGHTER BRUSH
You glow girl. Highlight, strobe and add a luminous glow to your make-up look with the Glam by Manicare® Pro H1. Highlighter Brush. It features tapered flame-shaped, ultra-soft NANO bristles for easy application of luminous accents to the high points of your face.
To apply: Sweep highlighter on areas where light would naturally hit it including the tops of cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, your cupid's bow (the dip at the top of your lip) and underneath the brow. Blend softly for a natural, dewy finish.
Beauty tips & tricks: Cream and liquid highlighters are best for dry skin and powder highlighters are better for oily skin - but both products can be used with the Glam by Manicare® Pro H1. Highlighter Brush. You can also apply highlighter to the corners of your eyes to really make your eyes pop.
ESSENTIAL EYE BRUSH SET
All eyes on you. The Glam by Manicare® Pro Essential Eye Brush Set includes 4 essential brushes that will take your eye looks to an expert level using the best tools and techniques. The set includes the E1. Tapered Blending Brush for soft colour transitions, the E2. All-Over Shader Brush to blend and layer shadows, the E3. Precision Shader Brush to add depth and contrast and the E4. Pencil Brush for detailed shadow application. Each brush is crafted with ultra-fine nano synthetic bristles for smooth and even application.
To apply: Use the E1. Tapered Blending Brush to sweep over your base shadow, soften harsh lines in your crease and seamlessly blend out multiple colours of your eyeshadow. Use the E2. All-Over Shader Brush to sweep a darker shade in the crease to add depth. The E3. Precision Shader Brush can be used to pack shadow on to the eyelid or also add a shimmer or contrasting colour. Use the E4. Pencil Brush for thin lines, to smudge eyeliner along the lower lash line for a smokey finish or to dab a light or shimmery shadow in the inner corners to really make the eyes pop.
Beauty tips & tricks: Complete your eyeshadow look before you apply your foundation so that you can easily clean up mistakes and create looks with cleaner edges. We’d also recommend using an eye primer on eyelids as an eyeshadow base to neutralize discoloration, make it last and create an even, blank canvas for your eye makeup.
Eyeshadow tips & tricks: If you want a more intense colour pigment, we’d suggest slightly wetting your brush before you use it or spraying a make up setting spray directly on to the brush.
C1. MICRO CONCEALING BRUSH
The best way to get that “no make-up make-up” look. Conceal and blur imperfections and correct and brighten dark circles with the Glam by Manicare® Pro C1. Micro Concealing Brush, a duo fibre paddle-shaped brush with ultra-soft NANO bristles. It’s designed to give a flawless natural finish to dark circles under your eyes, over blemishes and to conceal redness with cream or liquid concealers.
To apply: Add the concealer or foundation straight onto the brush. For blemishes, use light pressure to dot the area and then blend out. For dark circles, apply to the under-eye area in a triangle shape and blend.
Beauty tips & tricks: Use a concealer that’s one or two shades lighter than your foundation underneath your eyes to highlight your face and make your contour more defined.
GLAM BY MANICARE® PRO INSTANT BRUSH SANITISER
Keep it clean. Save your brushes from germs and a build-up of make-up in one smooth, quick and easy step with the Glam by Manicare® Pro Instant Brush Sanitiser. It's a quick-dry antibacterial spray that instantly sanitises brushes in between use, strips away oil and gets rid of any product build-up... all-in-one. It eliminates 99.9% germs instantly for better skin hygiene.
To apply: Spray the sanitiser directly onto the brush head and then sweep over a tissue or towel until bristles are clean. There's absolutely no need to rinse, just let the brush air dry for 1-2 minutes before using.
Beauty tips & tricks: This multi-purpose professional spray helps to prevent skin breakouts whilst prolonging the life of your brushes. It also makes sure you always have a flawless makeup application every single time and improved brush performance so it feels like you're using brand new brushes each time you do your make-up. We'd suggest using this spray after each use of your brushes to prevent contamination.
