Make-up brush set and sponge

The twelve brushes, which include a contouring brush, foundation brush and mini masterclass set, have been developed by beauty industry experts. They feature weighted sleek black handles and hand-made precision cut brush heads with super soft talkon bristles for a professional feel, as well as being allergy free and suitable for sensitive skin.

"These brushes are of an exceptional quality and the breadth of the range is excellent," says make-up artist to the stars Caroline Barnes. "They are affordable too, making them appealing to both professional and non-professionals. Make-up can have a huge impact on women’s confidence and I’m a big supporter of the wonderful work that Look Good Feel Better does to help cancer patients regain a sense of normality.”

With prices starting at an affordable £6.99, an 8-12 per cent donation will be made from the sale of each brush and set – Bespoke Europe have themselves generously guaranteed a minimum donation of £30,000. The money raised will enable Look Good Feel Better to expand their programme of workshops to help women suffering from cancer.

"We are really excited about the launch of these new brushes, not only is there a brush or set for everyone but they look and feel fabulous too!" says Sarah Jane Robertson, the charity's Executive Director. "The money raised will help us expand our reach through our confidence-boosting Workshops, Masterclasses and self-help materials.

"Over 165,000 women receive a cancer diagnosis each year and we want to ensure that all of these women have the opportunity to benefit from our services."
