  3. 'Just because' set

Beginners set (budget friendly)

If you’re going through the early stages of makeup brushes, we would recommend brushes that are affordable, with directions written on the packaging on how to use them. LAB2 have a great selection of brushes with prices starting from £4.99, and So Eco brushes are fab too. Not only are they affordable. They’re ethically sourced, eco-friendly, and come in recyclable packaging!
