If you are looking for beauty stocking fillers for Christmas, I think I have stumbled on one that is both affordable, practical and comes in a rather cute tin, Shadow Switch, from the up and coming beauty brand Beauty Essentials is a dry brush cleaning tool that allows you to clean your brushes by just sweeping them over the sponge. This means you no longer need to use a new brush when you are using different colours, and allows you to travel light – no need to take a host of brushes when you are traveling on holiday or going away for the weekend.
The Shadow Switch allows you to use a single brush even when adding more that one colour to your eyes or face. It offers a quick and easy, and also hygienic way to clean and preserve your brushes, one that involves no spray or solution. It works, even when you are using darker, more pigmented colours – they still disappear once the brush is swept over the dry sponge. I really like the fact that this allows you to put your make up on in a speedy fashion, there is no need to be searching for a clean brush to add a new colour, a very quick sweep and the brush is clean and ready to be used again.
How to use.
- Choose a colour.
2. Sweep the brush around the dry Shadow Switch sponge.
3. The Brush should be clean.
4. Now choose another colour.
This is all you need to do your eyes, and you could also use this if you are using different blushes to contour and bronze.
Shadow Switch is available at Sephora, and online at Amazon, where you can currently pick it up for just £5.99. As I mentioned earlier, I think it would be a great stocking filler for a beauty lover, or could be added to a larger beauty hamper.
