Looking for a versatile brush that lets you apply your powder easily and with precision? Try a kabuki brush! It will give you a natural makeup look as well as full coverage.
Kabuki is a big, dense brush with long hair and a short handle. Kabuki brushes are great for mineral, loose and compact powders and offer the following benefits:
- They fit into your hand perfectly.
- Their soft hair is gentle enough for sensitive skin.
- They offer natural results without using too much product.
Kabuki brushes derive their name from a genre of traditional Japanese theatre where the actors wear so-called Keshō – a very thick layer of makeup. A kabuki brush is mostly used to apply white rice powder which forms the base of the look.
Taking Care of Your Kabuki Brush
Kabuki makeup brushes should be cleaned once every 7 to 10 days. Cleaning your makeup brushes on a regular basis is important for the following 3 reasons:
- They will last longer.
