Our Top 6 Must Have brush set includes a Flat top Kabuki Brush, a Powder brush, an Angled Blush brush, an Eyeshadow brush, an Eyeliner and a Blending Brush
The handles are made of wood, and the bristles are made from goat, pony or synthetic hair depending on the brush type.
It’s normal for the brushes to shed some hairs in the first few uses. When you receive your set, we recommend carefully washing with shampoo and drying the brushes. After a washing and a few uses, they will stop shedding hairs and be perfect for precise makeup application.
We recommend carefully washing with shampoo and drying the brushes.
Washing your KESHIMA™ makeup brushes frequently can help keeping your brushes clean and the brushes will stay soft and lush! Makeup brushes can often harbor lots of dirt and bacteria, which can be easily removed. You need just five minutes a week and your makeup brushes will stay fresh and new much longer.
- Start with running the brush under hot water with the hairs pointing downwards to rinse off any caked on make-up. Do this for a minute, holding the brush at a downward angle, so that the water runs down the bristles rather than back along the handle
- Next use a mild shampoo or liquid hand soap or make-up remover. Squirt a little soap on your fingers and apply it to the hairs from ferrule to hair tips. Gently squeeze the hairs from ferrule to hair tips, lightly massage it in, being careful not to scrub. Rinse and repeat until the water runs clear. Make sure when you are rinsing to keep the brush hairs pointing down.
- Run the brush under hot water once again to rinse. Squeeze the bristles lightly between thumb and forefinger from the base to remove any excess water.
- Last brush them off a little on a clean paper towel and lay them to dry ON THEIR SIDE on a paper or regular towel. Never leave them to dry brush hairs up in a brush holder. Lastly, let brushes dry completely before using. Each brush have a different time to dry depending on size and brush density.
- Dab a small nickel size amount of the liquid product (such as foundation), onto the back of your non-dominant hand (or the hand that won't be holding the brush). If you prefer, you can use a palette instead. It's recommended to use the back of your hand as it warms the foundation and mixes with the natural oils of your skin, allowing for easier application.
- Another way to apply is to dab the liquid product onto your face first using your fingers. Spritz some water (some people like rose water, but regular tap water is fine as well) onto your brush.
- Dab the brush quickly and gently into the product a few times, just enough to thinly cover the bristles. (Skip this step if you used your fingers to dab on the product.)
- Using the same quick and gentle dabbing motion, dab the product evenly and thinly from the bristles of the brush onto your face. Many people like to start from the center of their face (the nose) and work outwards (hairline, ears, neck).
If using a powdered product, repeat the same as above. Blend out using an upward motion.
- Repeat step 3 until you've achieved the coverage desired.
If using powder foundation, dab the brush with the product and tap off the excess.
Stippling brushes are quite versatile, can be used to apply both liquid and powdered products, and are used for when you want a sheer, natural look. This means that only a thin amount of product is needed when applying, and it is easily buildable. Also, keep in mind that the product only needs to be applied onto the white bristle section of the brush, as these bristles are really what brings the look together.
If using liquid products:
- Squeeze a dime sized amount onto the back of your non-dominant hand and then gently dab the foundation with the brush to pick up the product. Make sure that the white bristles that are picking up product, as they are what will bring the look together.
- Lightly begin patting the brush with the foundation onto your skin, tapping on the face over and over again overlapping taps. This is called "stippling." Do NOT apply by buffing in the product as some suggest in technique videos, that is for flat top kabuki brushes.
- Lastly, swirl the brush gently onto the skin to blend everything together. The most important part about this is to make sure that only the white sections of the bristles are moving when blending, so this means use a very light touch.
If using powdered products:
- Swirl a small amount of powder onto the white section of the bristles and tap off the excess.
- Lightly sweep the powder onto your skin. If you have concealer on, you may want to pat those areas first before sweeping the powder on.
