Hello beauties! Wayne Goss is at it again, this time, bringing us his amazing eye brush collection, The Eye Set. If you've read my RAVE review on The Face Set, you may be surprised that I'm even more excited about this set. Truth is, these eye brushes are so smart and expertly-made that they truly cut the eye makeup time in half, making that intimidating smokey eye an easy-peasy, every day staple.
Read on for my FULL review, Tutorial, and a bonus OOTD below!!
Created by international makeup artist and YouTube superstar, Wayne Goss, the Eye Set brushes are anything but ordinary. All WG brushes are numbered instead of named to promote individual artistry and customization, yet they are fit to tackle just about any technique and application. Because they are so smart and well-made, these brushes are able to produce the most seamless results in record time. Tried and tested by moi :)
- Hand-crafted by 20 skilled artisans in Kumano, Japan (a region known for creating makeup brushes for over 200 years)
- Made of feather-soft, uncut natural fibers that are sourced 100% cruelty-free
- Uses brass ferrules to hold the bristles and sturdy hornbeam wood for the handles
Price: $148 per set. The brushes will go on individual sale in late May, pending availability.

Wayne Goss, The Eye Set Review & "City Smokey" Tutorial using Naked 2 Palette
- Brush #17 is perfect for applying all-over color using powders or creams, as well as highlighting under the brow. This brush is larger than most eyeshadow brushes and can pack on lots of color, saving time and cutting application in half. I love it for its super fine edge and sturdy bristles that create a clean, sharp line -- great for cleaning up the brows.
- I'm using Naked 2 Palette "Foxy" eyeshadow to highlight and clean up my brow bone area.
- I'm applying "Tease" eyeshadow to the crease using windshield wiper motions, then cleaning the brush and blending the color upwards, using small circular motions.
- I'm applying "Busted" eyeshadow directly to my natural crease (fold) using a few windshield wiper strokes.
- I'm applying "Blackout" eyeshadow to the "outer v" and blending it with the crease shadows. Next, I'm mixing the remainder of what's on my brush with "Tease" eyeshadow and lightly lining the entire lower lash line for a smokey effect.
- I'm applying "Verve" eyeshadow to the blank portion of my lid and also using the fine edge to outline the inner corner.
"City Smokey" for a City Gal :)
