The Make-Up Brushes That Experts Swear By

All good make-up artists will tell you it’s worth having the right tools to hand. For that reason, it’s worth knowing about MYKITCO. – the affordable, well-curated range of brushes created by renowned beauty pro James Molloy. Designed with both form and function in mind, the brushes promise a flawless finish every time. Here’s what you need to know, including the four new sets we love.

Created in partnership with MYKITCO.


Make-up master James Molloy is a big advocate of brushes, and with MYKITCO. he’s created a brush range that’s fuss free, easy to use and affordable. Having worked with some of the biggest names in the industry – think Jourdan Dunn and Stella McCartney – he has put customers at the forefront, learning what people need from their tools, then putting these demands into action.

Launched in 2015, the brand is now a firm favourite among industry insiders and top make-up artists, including Tania Grier, Zoe Taylor, Mary Phillips, Cat Parnell and Lisa Potter-Dixon. It’s also a frequent award winner.

You can buy the brushes singularly or as sets – the latter often works out as a better investment and given they’re such high-quality, you’ll have them for years. Plus, there are bags and accessories on offer to help you complete your kit.

Why The Brand Stands Out

Let’s start with the quality – the bristles of every brush are expertly bundled in a way that creates extra density, while maintaining a soft, fluffy shape. That means the brush holds onto the product for flawless application and finish. The lacquered handles also give you a solid grip for precise results. Each brush is tried and tested by industry professionals, so you can be certain you’re getting the very best – nothing is launched until James is certain it’s of the highest quality. Every brush is also multifunctional: use them with creams, liquids and powders – there are no limitations.

There are two colours available. The grey brushes are the ones to shop if you’re seeking a classic set of essentials, while the blue tools offer options for those with more specialised make-up needs.

Affordability also sets MYKITCO. apart from the crowd – prices start from just £11.50, which is impressive given the quality and unparalleled design.

The Latest Brush Sets To Invest In

My Essential Brush Set
Worth: £113.50
Costs: £75

Inside this new set you’ll find eight brushes which will cover your everyday needs. There’s everything from a concealer to contour, foundation and brow grooming brush inside. The latter is one of our favourites for its sturdy comb that whips arches into shape and keeps them defined and well-groomed. Also here is the brand’s bestselling My Smoothing Foundation Brush, which is known for its curved shape that not only offers seamless blending but gets into every nook and cranny for even application.

James created this set of 12 brushes for make-up fans who are ready to commit to a full set of tools. It contains all the brand’s bestsellers – from detailer brushes to face and eye tools – including its much-coveted My Feliner brush, which creates the perfect cat-eye flicks every time. Each brush works nicely with all formulations – be they powders, creams or liquids.

A note from James…

“I launched MYKITCO. in 2015 alongside my partner Alex. I noticed a gap in the market for affordable, professional tools and accessories made by a professional artist. I believe everyone should own a good set of brushes, but if you can only invest in one right now, my favourite from the MYKITCO. range is the My Flawless Face Brush. It works with foundation, powders, cream blushers and even highlighter. It’s the brush to have in your make-up bag.”
