Today it seems like everyone is going Green and making eco-friendly products. I am one of the people who enjoy eco-friendly products. While I don`t HAVE to have them, I still really like them. Recently EcoTools
contacted in regards to trying out some of their make-up brushes!
sent me their Bamboo 6 piece Eye Brush Set
along with their Bamboo Bronzer Brush
! The Eye Brush Set
includes a large eye brush, angles crease brush, highlighting brush, smudge brush and a Hemp & Cotton case with mirror. All the brushes are extremely soft! When using them, they`re unlike other brushes I have used in the past with the softness.
Typically I have use cheap brands of brushes that shed as you use them and fall apart rather easily. Those same brushes also aren`t very soft, they have more of a rough texture where the brushes seem to prick your face as you use them. With EcoTool
brushes the brushes stay together, no more funky brush shedding! Plus, my face isn`t being stabbed every time I choose to wear make-up! Also, I love the wooden handles! They`re smooth and easy to hold!
The brand new ecoTOOLS Bronzer Brush ($9.99) is the perfect tool for
attaining an even and natural golden glow! Â Brush the incredibly full head
of super soft bristles across skin where the sun naturally hits, resulting
in a warm, sun-kissed glow. Â The beautiful, solid bamboo handle is
professionally designed for ease of use and proper application of bronzer
onto the face and neck.
To beat this beauty quandary and to introduce its brand-new brushes for
February 2010, ecoTOOLS teamed up with celebrity makeup artist Meredith
Baraf to bring you the products and pointers you need to create a
professionally pretty face. Â On February 1, ecoTOOLS officially launched
four instructional videos on www.eco-tools.com
so women everywhere can
redefine and re-tool to become a total beauty know-it-all.
The instructional videos offer tutorials for the following looks:

HOW TO USE YOUR ECOTOOL:
STEP #1: Line with a pencil
The key to this look, says Meredith, is continuous blending and smudging.
Start with an eye liner pencil, and apply along the upper lash line - don`t
worry about getting a perfect line, because you`ll be blending it out soon!
STEP #2: Smudge
Go back with the EcoTools Smudge Brush, and sumdge the pencil line up and
outward -this will help smooth out any hard lines.
STEP #3: Â Intesify with shadow
Take a shadow (the same color as your liner) and go back over the pencil to
set and intensify the line with the same EcoTools Smudge Brush. Â The eye
should really be taking on that smoky look at this point!
Step #4: Blend
Using the EcoTools Blending Brush, blend the line upward in order to
gradiate the color. Â You want the shadow to vary in intensity so that the
look is subtle and sexy, not harsh.
Step #5: Highlight
Run the EcoTools Highlighting Brush through a light, shimmery shadow and
apply under the brow and also in the inner corner of the eye for a pop of
brightness amongst all the dark smokiness.
So would I recommend these brushes? Absolutely! These are my absolute favorite make-up tools now and don`t plan on turning back to the cheap stuff any time soon! Get your EcoTools
