The Edit


New year, new brushes: the Illamasqua makeup brushes you love had a glow up. We transformed our offering to a fresh collection of vegan, cruelty-free and professional-grade brushes.  

Dare to play with 18 new professional makeup brushes and three brush kits made from ultra-soft100% vegan materials. More importantly, they’ll help you apply, smooth, shape and blend like a pro. Not sure where to start? Our guide to finding the right makeup brush will help. 

Reimagined and expertly curated by our Director of Artistry Pablo Rodriguez, these professional-grade tools are tailored for makeup application on face, lips, brows and eyes 

Covering the makeup brush essentials for everyone from beauty enthusiasts to seasoned makeup artists alike, these brushes are an upgrade to all makeup kits. Pablo attributes the efficacy of these new brushes to the dedication to both technology and our cruelty-free brand pillar.  

“The new-technology and cruelty free bristles are super soft to touch and highlight the high performance of the products.” 

Face Brushes

With a focus on two categories, our Face Brushes help apply makeup like a true pro. Designed to buff, contour and conceal, the ultra-soft bristles make application a breeze. Plus, our NEW Foundation Brush is guaranteed to become a fast favourite.

Eye Brushes

Our Eye Brushes are tailored to create the eye makeup look of your dreams, covering all of the blending, defining and shaping bases. 

With a focus on minimal design and distinct details, these brushes are made for performance, thanks to their square-handled tips and glossy, lacquered finish.  

Brush Kits

These details carry over into the three brush kits: essential, face and eyes. Housed in a height-adjustable brush canister ideal for storing brushes of all sizes, these kits are a curated collection of everything you need to create the look of your dreams.

What’s even better, the cannister is easy to wipe clean – a makeup lover’s dream. 

Despite the new brushes being expertly-curated and reimagined by Pablo, the professional makeup artist and director of artistry does have favourites in the collection.  

My favourite is the Highlighter Brush – its fan shape beautifully blends the product into the skin and creates a worldly glow… the Blender Brush is another favourite of mine. It is the ideal tool to blend every little detail to perfection – probably the last brush you use after your makeup is finished. I call this one ‘the perfecter’.” 

Available now on, our new brushes will inspire you to create and express yourself using the very best in professional-grade, vegan tools.
