From today’s You magazine, in a piece entitled “21st century problems? There’s a MENTOR for that…”
I was browsing in Primark Oxford st and checked out their new beauty products which apparently have had a recent significent financial investment.
I was really impressed with their makeup brushes which I then bought for a transgender MTF client so she could experiment with her newly learnt makeup application techiques, taught by me, with these brilliant inexpensive makeup tools.
The brush prices ranged from £1-£2.50 and were excellent in both texture and balance between softness and firmness for application and blending away.
The key to a good make application is blending and blending away.
Its not all about countouring as seen in so many airbrushed insta MUA posts.
It’s so important to be able to blend away, especially for a trans girl who may still be covering her remaining beard growth during her laser/electrolysis/hormone treatments with layers of concealer products, foundation and powdering to set.
However blending away is important for all girls whether it’s eyeshadow, foundation, concealer or blusher.
The brushes shown here include double ended brushes:
Angled eyebrow brush
Eyeshadow and concealer brush
Apply and blend brush
Foundation and concealer brush
Powder and finish brush
And an artist palette of eyeshadows.
Great makeup tools for starting out.
Total £29! ( i doubled up on some of the brushes for my client)
Chatting to Eddie about female insecurities. More women are waking up and putting make up on straight away and refusing to leave the house without make up on – why do women feel the pressure to look done up, and what can we do to make women feel more comfortable in their own skin?

Alex did a Q&A with the hilarious stand up comedian Dominic Holland @dommoholland who just happens to be the dad of Spiderman Tom Holland @tomholland2013
Dominic is soon to be performing at the Edinburgh Festival.
Such a fun evening. However it was just like sitting in a sauna fully clothed. .
