For the most effective use of your reusable makeup pads, here's a simple guide:
- Before using them for the first time, give them a quick wash.
- After using, clean them with warm water or toss them in the washing machine on a gentle setting.
- To dry them, place them on a radiator or use a hairdryer if you're in a hurry.
- When dealing with stubborn eye makeup, hold the pad over your eyes for about 10 seconds before gently wiping off your makeup.

The Mini Eye Brush Set
The Mini Eye Brush Set includes The Eye Shadow Brush, The Blending Brush, The Eyeliner Brush, The Pointed Detail Brush, and The Angled Detail Brush. You might be asking yourself, "How do I properly use these brushes?" Let us help you out:
- The Eye Shadow Brush: sweeps powder over the eyelids. Typically, you will apply the eyeshadow colours you want and then blend the eyeshadows together with the brush for a seamless look. Blending is a key aspect of creating a seamless and professional-looking eye makeup look. Whether you're aiming for a subtle daytime look or a dramatic evening makeup, this brush helps you achieve the desired effect.
- The Blending Brush: blends eye makeup with the velvet soft brush. After applying your eyeshadow, take The Blending Brush and gently sweep it back and forth along the edges of the eyeshadow. The soft bristles will blend the colours together. The key to mastering this art of blending is to use gentle, controlled brush strokes with The Blending Brush. Focus on the areas where different eyeshadow colours meet, such as the crease of your eyelid.
- The Eyeliner Brush: blends and blurs eyeliner for a softer look. Using the brush, you can blur the eyeliner line by moving it back and forth along the eyeliner, softening any harsh edges. This technique can make your eyeliner appear less defined and more blended.
- The Pointed Detail Brush: creates cat-eye wing looks and blends with precision. The sharp point of the brush is excellent for achieving a sharp and defined wing. You can use the brush to refine the shape and size of the wing until it's just right.
- The Angled Detail Brush: the angled bristles are perfect with liquid eyeliner. The fine tip of The Angled Detail Brush allows you to create detailed and intricate designs. This is great for adding precise details to your eye makeup. If you make a mistake or need to clean up your eyeliner, the angled bristles can help you correct and perfect your lines. You can use a bit of makeup remover on the brush for touch-ups.
This brush set is all about creating intricate eye looks, and it's a game changer. The brush set's ethically sourced and PETA approved bristles will redefine your makeup routine. These brushes are long-lasting and are also made from sustainable wood. No more compromising on your principles for the sake of beauty.

One Brush-Two Lives
It’s time to take care of our planet and our old makeup brushes. Makeup brushes are incredibly difficult to recycle on your own. Otis Batterbee’s One Brush-Two Lives program is a sustainable way of discarding your overused brushes. Once your Otis Batterbee makeup brushes are at their wits end, send them back and we will recycle them for you. Otis Batterbee is committed to making sustainable choices to encourage living healthy, clean, and beautiful lives.
Makeup brushes are notorious for ending up in landfills and not being able to be recycled properly. Makeup brushes are often made from a combination of materials, such as plastic, metal, and natural or synthetic bristles. These mixed material makeup brushes are harder to recycle due to the recycling facilities having specialized processes. There is no specialized process for makeup brushes specifically. Contaminated materials can be difficult to recycle because residues can interfere with the recycling process. For example, makeup residues on brushes can contaminate other recyclables, making them unsuitable for recycling. Let’s stop the landfill and let’s start a more environmentally conscious beauty routine.
