When it comes to my make up brushes I’m very fussy and I believe in investing in quality so I want to ensure I look after them the best way I can.
I came across these Brush Guards after searching for travel things last time I went on holiday.
They are actually rather brilliant and I use them all the time! Either for drying my brushes after a deep clean to make sure they dry without becoming frizzy and to keep their shape, or whilst travelling so the bristles don’t get messed up.
They come in various sizes and my favourites are the shadow/liner size as they are the smallest but the best, in my opinion. They work with most brushes from tiny to medium sized and they keep the bristles in place the best.
I have 1 Shadow/liner pack which contains 10 guards and 2 variety packs which contains one shadow/liner guard, two small blush brush guards, two medium guards, suitable for foundation brushes and one large guard for a powder or kabouki brush.
I have pictured the guards on some brushes just too give you an idea of how they work.
The MAC 219 & 217 have the shadow/liner brush guards on. The Sigma F35 and The Sephora Pro Contour Brush have the Small Blush Brush guards on. The Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and the Louise Young LY34 Brush have the Medium Foundation brush guards on.
I don’t feel the Large guards are suitable for any of brushes as the other ones fit them just fine and keep the bristles compacted so they keep their shape better.
Overall these have been a brilliant purchase as they have really helped keep my brushes in great condition. Before I had these I used to let my brushes dry and they would be a bit bushy and misshaped but the mesh guards keep the bristles compacted and they dry in their original shape. I love using these with my more pointed brushes i.e, the Sigma F35 or the Charlotte Tilbury Powder & Sculpt and the MAC 217/224 brushes.
You can get Brush Guards from Amazon (most choice), Cocktail Cosmetics or Love Make up. US residents can get them here.
Have you tried these and what do you think?
