Our Custom Brushes

With over a decade of experience and deep understanding of the importance of the right tools for makeup application, we have developed our own makeup brushes. Handmade in Japan and the brush hair is made of the highest quality of squirrel, weasel and goat hair. Hair is hand picked and no laser cutting technology is used which ensures the brush hair is extremely soft and will not cause any allergic reaction to your skin. These brushes make application easier and make the look last longer. Four brushes provide you with a perfect solution for a full makeup application including loose powder, blush, eye shadow, highlight, concealer, contouring and blending. They will last for 8 to 10 years if well taken care of. In addition to the four brushes, we will also include a small brush pouch so you can take your them with you wherever you go. The pouch is available in metallic black or brown. Please reach out to us for more info.
