Back when Dior and Schiaparelli were the queens of couture design, makeup and cosmetics were an art form all to themselves. Pigment rich colours in lips were the rage and makeup had a finish like it had never seen before. Makeup brushes at the time were made regionally within their own country as the global marketplace was decades away. Everything was hand crafted and made with care and attention - and it showed. Things Lasted. They looked Beautiful - and they are still looking beautiful today in many cases.
Growing around this philosophy, Siân inherited her first set of makeup brushes from her late father - a film makeup artist.. Some of them were over twenty years old.. Beautiful Dior brushes, Max Factor and Kolinsky sable brushes too, and she used them into the first years of her makeup career.
LBC makeup brushes are hand made in the UK and USA. We do not mass produce large quantities to manage quality. They are made by some of the longest existing brush makers around, who are craftsmen and women. Siân wants to give the best quality possible that she can to enable people to once again hold works of art in their hands as they create works of art on their faces, or faces of their clients, and with this in mind LBC Classic Collection makeup brushes are made from Premium Grade, Unblended, European Sable, Pine Squirrel and Blue Squirrel.
