In December, I purchased the Eleanor Dorn Eye Set, a handy brush kit including 6 eye brushes and a storage cylinder for $80. Firstly, I love the appearance of the brushes - they have black handles and glossy black ferrules, with 'Eleanor Dorn' embossed on one side and the brush number embossed on the other side in gold. The black and gold colour scheme is just so classy, and it's nice to have brushes that aren't the standard silver ferrule with black handle. The black and gold also extends to the storage cylinder - it's black with Eleanor Dorn Makeup embossed on the top in gold. I actually really, really like the storage cylinder as well - it's great for travel, and while you can use the two halves as brush holders, I prefer to keep all of my eye brushes inside the closed cylinder to protect them from dust. All of these brushes are natural bristle brushes, save for the Brow Brush.
#7 Tapered Crease Brush for contouring and blending eyeshadow
A small, slightly tapered brush with black bristles. It's soft and dense, and is just the right size for my eye crease. $16
This brush reminds me quite a lot of the MAC 239 - both are flat, rounded brushes designed for packing colour onto the lid. It's soft, yet firm in exactly the right way. It's the same width as the 239, but slightly shorter and slightly less firm. $15
Definitely not as firm as the Medium Fluff brush. I've been using this for eyeshadow primer so far. Looks a lot like the Wayne Goss #18 brush, however I don't have both to compare. $16
This brush is small, soft yet quite firm. Lately, I've been using this to apply an inner corner highlight - it's the perfect size! $14
This has been my go-to gel eyeliner brush! It's a bit larger than the brush I was using before (Crown C160 1/8" Angle Liner) but still allows me to draw a sharp, opaque line. $14
Also known as a spoolie brush. This is perfect for brushing brows into shape, and blending product into brows for a more natural look. I use this pretty much every day - even if I'm not wearing brow makeup, it tidies my brows really well. $14
These brushes are available nationally and internationally from Eleanor Dorn.com. Follow her on Instagram and Facebook for updates and tutorials!
