Hi guys, today I am going to be reviewing a Zoeva En Taupe set of make-up brushes specifically designed for your eyes. These make-up brushes are created by a German company called Zoeva. I love the quality and designs of their products, so I’ve decided to tell you more about make-up brushes that I’ve tried already! The En Taupe eye set has six individual brushes ranging from small detailed brushes to larger blending brushes. One of the reasons I love Zoeva so much is that their sets always come with a beautiful bag to keep all your brushes safe and clean. This particular set has a brown leather look zip bag. I think En Taupe make-up brush set with the matching bag is perfect if you are on the go and need to create that flawless makeup look. You may remember seeing my previous blog and vlog post Golden Goddess, where I show you an eyeshadow palette also from Zoeva.
What are the brushes in Zoeva En Taupe set and how do I use them?
The first brush is called Wing Liner 317. This particular brush is ideal for wet products, such as your gel liner, brow liner and lipstick. This brush has a strong structure and a sharp line. Perfectly designed to create a strong defined line along the tops and bottoms of your eyes. Not only can you use this product for creating that red hot cat eye look. You can also use this brush on your lips and brows. Use on your lips for a defined cupids bow and below your brows for that high arch defined brow.
Beauty Tip: always stick to using your brushes for the same products, i.e if you use this brush for gel liner don’t start using a powder eyeshadow with it. It can spoil your brushes.
The second brush in Zoeva En Taupe set is the Brow Line brush 322. This brush allows you to achieve a soft line around the eyes enlarging the eye area. Perfect for a precise under eye line. This brush has a straight edge (*not at such an angle as the Wing Liner). Making it easy to achieve a precise straight line.
.The Luxe precise shader 238 does exactly what it says on the brush. Ideal for shading and highlighting. Use this brush on all the smaller areas of your eyes. For example, in the inner corner of the eye, when you are applying highlighter; under the brow area and the cupids bow. This delicate brush is just the correct size to tackle smaller areas of your eyes. This allows you to add details to areas that only a brush like this can get to.
The Luxe Crease 228 is my absolute favourite brush! I love this brush as it allows me to blend all my eye make-up together. Now I don’t know about you, but I find that the reason eyeshadow looks flawless is due to the trick of blending (*shhhhhh only you can know). Blending your make up softens your overall look and gives you flawless photo ready eyes you’ve always dreamed of! The trick for me is to use circle motions along side a back and forth motion when blending. This allows the entire eye shape to be blended. I also use an eye blender brush from Smashbox. Although I love that brush a lot (*!!!), I do find that Luxe Crease 228 is a little smaller in size allowing better access to the eye area. This brush is also much more affordable and the quality is on an equal level.
The Luxe Soft definer 227 is the perfect brush for you natural day looks. This brush will apply just the correct amount of eyeshadow for your perfect natural no make-up make-up look. I’d recommend using this brush for highlighting and contouring specific areas of your face, such as nose and cheeks.
The last brush in Zoeva En Taupe set is the Luxe Pencil 230. This brush is great for applying your darker eyeshadow shades to the outer corners of the eye. This detail brush is perfect for changing your look in a second. You can go from day to night simply by using this brush to add definition to the outer edges of the eye (*hello sexy).
Overall, for me the Zoeva En Taupe eye set has thought of everything! I would always say that your first point of call, when kitting yourself out with make-up brushes is the eyes. Not only can you colour and shade your entire eye area but you can also use the brushes on your entire face (*what a bargain)!
Where can I buy the Zoeva En Taupe eye set?
You can purchase this make-up brush set online at Zoeva or check out Zoeva collection at beautybay.com.
How much does Zoeva En Taupe cost?
As the company is German the prices are in Euros, however I have translated the price into pounds for you. €42.00 which equals £31.87 (*thats only £5.31 per brush!)
I found that this company is extremely well priced as some of the other luxury make up brand brushes can start from £18 for one brush. I hope you have found this review useful and will help you make the right decision for you when choosing your new make-up brushes.
