The Bdellium Tools 777 brush is an all round eye-shadow brush, perfect for applying shadow across your entire lid. You can use this to apply colour over your lid, as well as adding highlight to your brow bone. This brush is also perfect for adding a pop of colour on to the center of your lid to finish off a look.
The Bdellium Toolas 716 brush has the perfect shape for creating a smoky look around the inner corner of your eye. You can use this brush to subtly apply a lighter shimmer shade, opening up your eyes and making them appear bigger and brighter.
The Bdellium 781 brush is a crafted brush shaped for applying colour to the crease of your eye. This brush works perfectly to apply a darker shade through your crease without making a mess or altering the paler shades used more towards the inner third of your lid. It’s also great for using your darker shadow shades to subtly line your lower lash line.
The Bdellium 769 brush is a sharp angled brush for contouring with intense colour. You can use this brush to apply a darker shade on the outer crease of your eye, and it works perfectly to blend shades through making your eyeshadow look effortlessly and professionally put together.
The final brush in the set is the Bdellium Tools 760 brush. This brush is perfect for lining both your upper and lower lash line and can be used to create anything from a slim, subtle liner to a more wide, intense winged liner. You can even use this brush with cream and gel products as well as powder!

We’ve been so inspired by the beauty looks featured at London Fashion Week… here’s our picks of the AW13 beauty trends with tips on how to recreate them…
Bold Red Lips
It’s never really gone away and we’ve never stopped loving it. Contrast against a barely there pale complexion and nude eye. Get the look with Lime Crime Retro Futurist or Velvetines Suedeberry when it’s back in stock (we’re waiting with baited breath!) here
Pick a colour, any colour, so long as it’s rainbow bright - and the shape to aim for is long with squared off or oval tips. Our pick’n’mix includes hot pink Priti NYC Bovey Belle Carnation. yellow NCLA Dirty Martini, lilac NCLA As If! and Barry M Spring Green. All available here.
We loved these happy go lucky lips paired with Jasper Conran’s catwalk looks, which immediately made our thoughts turn to OCC Lip Tars. We’re thinking Harlot or Trollop will fit the bill… how about you? Choose from original, new (with brush) or Metallurgy (metalllics) here.
Which is your favourite from these looks or other LFW beauty trends?
