Wilma Holmqvist is one of the biggest youtubers in Sweden. She couldn’t find any makeup brushes that were both high quality and price worthy on the market, so she decided to make her own line. She engaged her followers in the process to make the best brushes possible.
The result was Hickap. A set of 13 vegan makeup brushes, made of high quality synthetic bristles. You can use the brushes with powder, creams and liquid products. They won’t absorb any of the products used while applying, which makes your products last longer.

How to wash the brushes
The surface of the bristles is antibacterial treated, which makes it easier to clean the brushes and keep them fresh for a long time. Since the brushes are vegan, you can easily wash them with soap or dish soap, and then rinse with lukewarm water. Try to avoid getting water inside the shaft, since it can dissolve the glue. To dry the brushes, lay them on a dry towel, with the shaft up, to avoid water to run in.
The brushes are very soft and it feels lovely to use them on your skin, especially the Powder Deluxe brush. Applying your makeup feels like a gentle massage. Overall, the brushes are easy to use. They pick up a good amount of product and not much, basically nothing, falls off. While washing the brushes, the makeup is rinsed off easy. The bristles dries quickly, and the brushes with the most bristle hair can be used again after just after a couple of hours. The Complete Set is perfect for both the beginner and the professional makeup artist. It has all the essential brushes you need for both the everyday and glamorous looks.
