Artis Brushes are known s some of the finest makeup brushes in the world. They are not your ordinary makeup brushes. Artis Brushes has ergonomic handles that allow for the direct application of product to the face as opposed to a twisting motion of the hand as most makeup brushes do. They are affectionately known as the “Rolls-Royce of Makeup Brushes”. Artis is the Latin word meaning: "skill, method, technique, conduct, character." Artis Brushes were created because makeup brushes never evolved from the watercolor paintbrushes that they copied from the art world. Artis is dedicated to the creation of the modern cosmetic and makeup brush. By inventing new orientations, methods, materials and designs, Artis can enhance the application of makeup and makeup products not only for professional makeup artists but for all makeup users. Their mission is to become a premier designer, manufacturer and multi-channel retailer of Artis beauty tools and products worldwide. Artis aspires to define a global standard for efficient, ethical and aesthetically beautiful makeup brushes, beauty products, serves and information.
I tried one of their brushes recently, the Circle 1 Brush, part of the Elite Mirror Collection. This brush is ideal for several purposes. The patented brush works for applying lip products such as lipstick, concealer and small amounts of direct eye shadow. The Circle 1 Brush has a tilt from the handle and a round fiber bundle which ends in a flattened surface that simulates the shape of a lipstick bullet tip. It can also be used for a more precise edge if desired. The Circle 1 Brush will apply small areas of concealer to help cover spots. It is also good for applying eye shadow to the lid, for smaller areas. Artis Brushes are made exclusively with CosmeFibre, a revolutionary engineered fiber made for applying cosmetic and makeup products.
It took a little bit of getting used to this new style of brush. Artis Brushes are definitely different than other brushes I have ever used. As I mentioned, they are ergonomic and in the style that your hand should be using. Applying makeup with the handle is a breeze but goes against all the years of what we have been doing. I liked the handle once I got used to it. I prefer applying lip products with the Circle 1 Brush as it has the dense fibers needed for applying lipstick and lipgloss. However, it does work well for applying eye shadow too. I tried it that way and it works well for applying eye shadow on my small lids.
The Artis Circle 1 Brush retails for $35.00 and can be purchased online at www.artisbrush.com. Online there are various brush collections and sets that are available for purchase. They have a great number of brushes available. I think you will be very happy with the types of brushes and styles. They are brushes that you will keep for life, if taken care of and kept well.
Until Next Time~
