Drugstore Dash: EcoTools Brush Set

EcoTools Summer Look - Politics of Pretty

I’ve been on the hunt for easy, portable makeup brushes. Next week marks my first business trip for my full-time gig—I’m going to Boston! With that said, I’m trying to pack as light as possible (which, if you know me, is no easy feat). When I was on vacation earlier this month, I only ended up using four products out of the 40 I packed. Need I say more?

This month, EcoTools sent me their five-piece Lovely Looks Brush Set, a must-have for traveling beauties like myself. This box includes a powder, angled blush, foundation, shadow and flat eyeliner brush—essentials for a start-to-finish makeup look for day or night. I love how soft the bristles are (seriously, I’m stroking them as I write this post).

My summer makeup routine has been pretty low key—I always opt for a trusty tinted moisturizer with SPF, mascara, a neutral creamy shadow, and a cream-based blush. In my opinion, the angled blush brush is the star product in this set—I’ve been trying to achieve that natural summer glow and the angled brush makes it easy to attain a natural rosy cheek for cream or powder blushes. Using these sleek travel-friendly bamboo brushes, I’ve been able to pull off an breezy summer makeup look thanks to these finishing products, perfectly priced under $15.
