I started to collect Louise Young brushes a long time ago, my boyfriend helped me and was ordering them for me as presents for my birthdays, I can show you the LY brushes I own today and compare them with other similar brushes that have now joined the group.
Louise Young brushes are easy to get online, I know that in London you can get them in Fenwick and maybe also in Harvey Nichols but I am not sure about that last one.
I thought it was just the perfect timing to also show you the palette. Yesterday I attended a nice little makeup training class in Geneva together with 5 utterly funny girls, the makeup artist created one look on each of us, we “just” had to do the other eye…
First the makeup artist asked us what kind of looks we loved to wear, I told her I loved neutral with a twist, a pop of color blended with a neutral look or a little daring accent but still appropriate for my age. Then she selected a brick red for me ! That’s really strange because I love that color but I never told her and she never saw me wearing it. The brick red she applied on my crease was perfect, luminous and flattering, I absolutely loved the look. I remembered having this Louise Young palette at home so I wanted to try it today. Unfortunately that didn’t went so well. The black was a nightmare to blend and the brick is nice but not luminous enough in my opinion, same for the cream shade. But let’s start with the Louise Young brushes and we will come back to this topic later on
The LY cosmetics
These are the ones I own today :
I think she only has one makeup palette but she has many other brushes that you can check out on her website.
