Mary O’Donnell: Brushing Up On Beauty

Posted by


rsz_mary_odonnell_xIN the last few years make-up application is all about the brushes.

Three years ago I got my first Blank Canvas brush and three years later I still use it. It was the company’s first brush and now the range has grown to include a contour palette and liners .


They see the face as a “Blank Canvas” where we use professional make up and tools to enhance the natural beauty already present.

Make Up is an art in itself and a medium to express your personality, confidence and inner beauty.


Blank Canvas Cosmetics was founded in 2011 by Una Tynan.  They frequently add new products to their range which has grown extensively in three years.

Most recently, they-added eyeliner pens Borderlines and Winging It to theirlarge range of products.

BC are working on a number of exciting products which will launch mid 2015. One of their projects is an exciting collaboration with Pippa O’Connor launching this summer.

Their professional brush range has-grown dramatically with over 60 styles of brush tools to choose from.

Their brush range contains an extensive range of natural and vegan friendly fibres. Since launch, they’vebuilt a loyal fanbase worldwide with 100,000 followers onfacebook.

They come highly recommended by their loyal customers, make up artists, bloggers and have the amazing, Kerry-based Youtube sensation Sinead Cady as their online brand ambassador.


Their aim is simple. They strive to develop and producesuperior quality products at an affordable price.  They pledge to continue to create beauty innovations that their-loyal customers will love.

To start I would recommend the 5 piece set as it includes.

HOT PINK F20 FLAT BUFFER BRUSH (HD FACE COLLECTION)  – The hero bestselling brush for foundation and powder application- multi purpose brush, brilliant for all skin types.

Even for dry to normal skin because the stippling effect doesn’t push the dry skin around ones’ face. All ages love this brush.

F22 HD DOME FACE BRUSH in METALLIC PURPLE (HD FACE COLLECTION) for cream/powder blush/foundation- great for normal-combination skin

E26 Blending Brush for eyeshadow application and blending. If there’s one brush to have in your brush arsenal, this is it. It ‘s flat shape is great for application but it’s dome fluffy shape is also brilliant for blending.

E27 Cute Mini Detailer  Great for detailing work around the eye/ small lids.

E30 Double Ended Brow/Spoolie  Another bestselling brush, ideal for brow grooming. Whether you like your brows groomed to perfection or you want to simply run some eyeshadow through them, the E30 is perfect. It’sangled end is also great for gel or cream eyeliner.
