Earlier this week I had the chance to attend the breakfast launch of a new makeup brush ranges, which benefits the Look Good Feel Better.
Those of you that follow me on snapchat might have seen snippets of it already, as I featured the event live that day.
It was a lovely morning connecting with others in the industry and learning about the importance of makeup when undergoing cancer therapy.
The brushes are from amazing quality, especially for the price point. I am using mine already in my professional makeup kit and really love how extremely soft they feel.
they also look really nice and sleek. I definitely recommend them for everyone looking for affordable makeup brushes or for pro artists that want to add to their collection.
They are synthetic brushes, free from any protein component, which makes them hypoallergenic and cruelty-free. The handles are weighted and feature chrome ferrules,
which really makes them look professional.
The shapes and sizes are very usable too, it’s a full collection covering anything you would need at home, including a great sponge (similar to the Beauty Blender)
I am super happy with them so far, so if you are in Australia, go and check them out. You will find them within Priceline Pharmacy.
About The Charity
15% of the sale goes to the charity to help raise money to provide support for women with cancer.
Look Good Feel Better is a global cancer support charity, they host makeup workshops to help women feel more confident and better when undergoing their treatments and coping with hair loss and skin problems.
It was really interesting learning more about their work.
Besides the lovely volunteers, there was also a beautiful young woman, Alex. She shared her story about her personal journey with cancer. Listening to her made it obvious, how such a small thing like skincare and makeup can make such a big difference for everyone that is ill. Alex said she lost more than her hair. She felt as if she was losing her identity and feminity. Getting the chance to learn how to apply makeup, gave her back some confidence and joy. She was able to see herself again and created a new identity with confidence.
Look Good Feel Better was founded by the cosmetic industry in Australia and unfortunately uses conventional makeup brands, containing many questionable ingredients.
The work of the volunteer makeup artists is nonetheless remarkable, they make a big difference in the patients confidence. I would really love to see them focussing on toxin-free makeup brands. Giving out higher quality products to the patients in the makeup kits they provide would be a huge improvement. Avoiding synthetic fragrance and other unnecessary harsh chemical ingredients is certainly important to promoting health.
My own humble opinion:
Keep up the great and important work, but do your research and partner with brands that are healthy and safe to use. The brushes are a great start and an amazing product to help raise funds.
