MY MAKEUP BAG ESSENTIALS

ARTIS BRUSHES

The Artis Brushes are the sexiest looking brushes we have ever seen. They are simply beautiful. Each brush is made with the brand’s revolutionary CosmeFibre® filaments for the perfect finish and has a grip pad at the handle for ease. Named after the Latin word for skill, these ergonomically designed brushes perfectly fit fingers and hands, while the fibre bundle tips complement facial contours making it easy to get a professional finish. We absolutely love the aesthetic and philosophy behind the brand and think it would make a gorgeous gift for any makeup lover!

T3 HAIR CARE

Part tech start up, part beauty venture, in 2003 we pioneered the first luxury hair tools. From one idea – tourmaline-powered hair dryers – we’ve evolved into a brand synonymous with high-performance, styling efficiency and, most importantly, reliably beautiful hair. Combining elevated aesthetics, meticulous engineering and cutting-edge technology to overcome daily hair struggles for millions of women around the world.
