From the time I started modeling in my teens to current day, I must have owned about ten sets of makeup brushes. Maybe even more. Among them are four brushes that have lasted decades long - 2 from MAC and 2 from Shu Uemura. The others have either been thrown away due to broken handles, loose fibers, or simply ineffective in use.
I probably should have purchased a full MAC or Shu Uemura set. Unfortunately even when I was earning as a model, I could not justify the exorbitant cost. But if I had known it would last for many years, perhaps even forever, then the cost per use would easily have been justified.
However, I was stubborn. There must be other brands that can offer the same quality but can make it much more affordable. I wanted a prudent and smart solution. And when I chanced upon a beautiful set of brushes in my social channels, I realized I found the answer in EIGSHOW brushes.
EIGSHOW is a beauty tools brand whose name is an acronym that describes its target customers - Elegant, Intelligent, and Gorgeous beauty enthusiasts. It started with a group of professional fashion and beauty insiders, from makeup artists, influencers, and creatives, who decided in 2013 that the market needs a high-quality makeup brush line that is priced inclusively to make it affordable to everyone.
3 reasons why EIGSHOW brushes are a must in your makeup collection
1. The craftsmanship and quality is at par with popular and well-known brands. Comprehensive information on their materials and sourcing is explained here: https://eigshowbeauty.com/pages/our-material

3. The design and details of the makeup brush sets and individuals are aesthetically pleasing and sleek. From the carefully selected brush bristles, the natural wood handles that are aged and polish, to the thick copper ferrule that is made to last, these brushes are very attractive to use. The sets are accompanied by meticulously crafted carrying cases that have useful details, such as side pockets and easy-to-clean vegan materials. The product designers know its customers want nothing but the best in function and presentation.
