Make Up Brushes – The Essentials!

main image


Hi ladies… and guys if you’re reading this looking for Christmas gift inspiration!!

On a daily basis I get emails asking about what make up brushes do I recommend. As you all know by now, all I use is Blank Canvas, the selection, quality and value for money can’t be beaten. Gone are the days I’d pay silly money for just one make up brush and find myself picking hairs off my face!!

I’ve written about my favourite individual brushes before, see here. That was ages ago now, so today I wanted to make some recommendations for people’s different requirements.


My main query about brushes is from people who want the basics. I recommend the 5 piece set #1 (see here)- this is a small set that will do anyone for everyday use. This suits a beginner, a teenager or anyone who isn’t too sure where to start with their brush collection.


It contains my favourite *F20 flat buffer brush- everyone needs this foundation brush to achieve a flawless looking finish.


You’ll also get the *F21 angled contour brush. I use this brush everyday for blush, cream blush or to contour. (I actually have a few I love it that much!)


*E23/24 double ended Eyeshadow brush, this is perfect for everyday application.


*E25 Eyeshadow brush for blending.


*E30 double ended eyebrow brush & spoolie – this is nearly the most important brush in my kit because I love brows so much. This is perfect for applying shadow or gel onto your brows and using the spoolie to brush it out.

It comes with a free case too so it’s ideal for anyone who wants to carry their brushes with them in their bag or for traveling also.

It costs €49.99 online from

My discount code ‘PIPPA’ will give you 10% off any order over €15.

I hope this has been helpful to you.

Much love
