Prior to the release of the LUXIE Expert Artist Kit, celebrity MUAs share insider beauty tool tips on how to create a flawless face like the pro’s
Campbell, CA – (February 24th, 2021): Every makeup artist knows: a flawless finish starts with the right tools. Prior to the anticipated release of their 20-piece Expert Artist Kit, LUXIE asks top industry pro’s to reveal the go-to beauty bag essentials they rely on to create the hottest celebrity looks. Since the 2014 premier of a first-ever vegan, high-performing makeup brush, LUXIE has earned a global reputation for proving the impossible with an expanding collection of ultra-soft synthetic, hypoallergenic brushes, sponges, and premium beauty tools. On the heels of its 6th anniversary, the female-founded beauty brand consults with some of the biggest names in beauty to craft the LUXIE Expert Artist Kit, empowering makeup lovers of all skill levels to recreate any trend with insider-favorite pieces at their fingertips.
“My top five makeup brush picks in this LUXIE set start with the 530 Flat Top Kabuki Brush,” says celeb MUA, co-founder of Regard Magazine and 25-year hair/makeup expert Valerie Noble. “I’m a big fan of using a brush to apply foundation, so you use less product and get flawlessly blended results.” Next, Noble recommends the 502 Large Powder Brush to set foundation or blend bronzer over face and neck; the 520 Tapered Face Brush for dusting cheeks with blush or highlighter; the 213 Eye Shading Brush to apply and blend the perfect eyeshadow look; and the 223 Short Shader Brush to conceal under-eye dark circles or prime the lids for color.
“On set, I can’t waste time searching for the right brush – I need an arsenal of quality tools ready to go,” says Vogue-featured Makeup Artist Anthony Pazos. Trusted by A-listers like Khloe Kardashian and Beyoncé, Pazos turns to the complete LUXIE Expert Artist Kit for tools that create lasting impressions, but points out these must haves: the 520 Tapered Face Brush for bronzers and blush; the 530 Flat Top Kabuki Brush to buff on cream, powder, or liquid foundation; the versatile 213 Eye Shading Brush for applying shadows and concealers; the 215 Small Angle Brush to line eyes with liquid or powder shadow; and the 522 Tapered Highlighting Brush to accentuate cheekbones, nose, and brow.
“When choosing my go-to tools, versatility is key,” shares Lynn Simpson, owner of Delilah Beauty and the sought-after celebrity Makeup Artist known for her work with celebrities like Jessica and Ashlee Simpson. Her top five brushes include: LUXIE’s versatile 532 Round Top Kabuki Brush for liquid or cream foundations and powders; the 504 Large Angled Brush for precise application of blushes and bronzers; the 217 Pencil Eye Brush (her ultimate favorite) for applying shadows to the outer or inner eyelid and creating that perfectly smudged smoky look; the 231 Tapered Blending Brush for blending, contouring, and applying eye color; the 223 Short Shader Brush for building rich cream or powder color on the eye and applying concealer.
Engineered for efficiency, the LUXIE Expert Artist Kit features 20 pro-favorite signature rose gold brushes conveniently organized in a slim zippered shell complete with 24 brush pockets and 2 large storage pockets. Access all your essentials anytime, anywhere – an elastic safety loop ensures comfortable travel and a chic belt allows you to wear on your waist artist-style for fast, easy application.
