The Essential Eye Brush Kit

With my wedding just a little less than three weeks away (eeek!! I can’t believe it!!), most of my down time has been spent working on wedding related things. I’ve come to rely on a simple makeup routine—one that requires just a few products that last all day or I can take with me on the go. Enter: EcoTools Essential Eye Set, which includes a large eye brush, angled crease brush, petite eye shading brush, highlighting brush and smudge brush. Combine this brush set with one of my favorite eye palettes in my arsenal—my Urban Decay Naked 3 (I love the romantic shimmery and matte rose shades) and my makeup arsenal is complete. Check out this eye look I created for my Parisian themed bridal brunch…

Love my eye look? Here’s a quick breakdown of how you can achieve this eye look using this essential eye brush kit, priced perfectly under $8:

I used the large eye brush to blend a base shadow (Limit) over the entire eyelid. I then applied Nooner, a slightly darker shade along the crease using the angled crease brush (it adds just the right amount of definition to the outer crease of my eye) while the petite eye shading brush is perfect for an accent color. I use the highlighting brush to accentuate the brow bone (using Strange, a pure crème white) and the inner corners of my eye. As a quick and final touch-up, I smudge the Darkside shadow as eyeliner along the lash line for a smokey finish. I finish with a couple coats of mascara and voila!
