Our Inspiration & Brand Ethos
The inspiration behind the business comes from my professional make-up background: with so many options on the high street as well as online, and with many brush sets simply too complicated with either far too many brushes, or sets with a small selection of the essentials, most people don't actually know what to do with them or where to even start!
This is where our brushes and tutorial product/service comes in, perfect for those wishing to gain confidence in applying their own makeup or simply update their look while picking up some invaluable tips & techniques.
What will we use the funds from the Project for?
To develop our online tutorials & website further to provide a complete service to our clients under one roof (our website).
Fund further web design to make the improvements needed in order to develop our masterclass group tutorials & also bring the online tutorials within the website itself other than using Skype.
More online promotion as well as press marketing to build brand awareness.
To build & develop our existing team of Pro Expert MUA's to a UK wide as well as US & further (online tutorials will be available worldwide).
We are also working on increasing the ‘Brush Range by including new designs to expand the business.
Introduce our branded Make-Up Bags (the first design which is included in our Kickstater) & then work towards a full range to compliment the brushes.
Our Palate Range in currently in the design stage where will offer clients the option to create their own Bespoke Palate including recommended colours for eyeshadows & blusher as well as contour & eyeliner products.
With the minimum funding of £5000 we can develop our first make-up bag design as well as develop our website to improve online tutorials & our shop. We can also build on our online presence with further marketing as well as press for brand awareness. Also build on our Pro Expert Team to a full UK wide reach.
With successful funding we can begin the development process for all the above to bring this into fruition.
With furthermore we can begin to develop the brush range by bringing in new designs that are in the pipeline as well as further make-up bag/accessories to our make-up palates too.

Risks and challenges
We always do run the risk of delays with the manufacturing process as well as shipping issues.
However we have minimised these for our Kickstarter Project, as our brushes are ready to go as soon as the project has finished!
It is our new make-up bags that are currently in production to be funded by our project, however we have been assured that these can be shipped to allow our turnaround by April.
