I’m always getting questions about my favorite brushes and how my makeup looks flawless. Well, part of the reason my makeup looks the way it does is because of the brush I use: To apply my foundation, I always use a flat kabuki brush. Here’s a little breakdown of the kabuki brush and why I find it so amazing!
When you look at a kabuki brush, you can instantly tell it’s different from other brushes in that the hairs are much more tightly packed together and there’s a lot more of it than most other brushes. A kabuki brush is very dense, allowing you to “buff” your makeup into your skin. Using my kabuki brush to make small circular motions, I buff my foundation onto my skin allowing it to create a smooth and seemingly flawless appearance. The density of the kabuki brush is what allows you to use this buffing technique in order to get such a nice finish!
I would recommend using a kabuki brush for more of the medium to full coverage stuff like liquid and cream foundations. I’d skip it for something like a tinted moisturizer.
I’ve had plenty of other kabuki brushes that I’ve loved, but the one I’m currently obsessed with and use almost every day is the Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki brush. First of all, I love the sleek black handle, and secondly, it’s synthetic! Synthetic fibers are always great for liquid and cream makeup… I absolutely love this brush! And the size is perfect; sometimes kabuki brushes tend to be too large to use in the more hard-to-reach areas like your nose and under eyes, but the Sigma F80 is just the right size to get my whole face!
