Having the right brush is essential for achieving the most flawless makeup application. In this week’s Makeup Wars Challenge, we’re dishing on our favorite makeup brush. Although I have a ton of makeup brushes, my favorite is easily the NARS Yachiyo Kabuki Brush. Read on for more…
Whether in makeup or in makeup tools, versatility is important and the NARS Yachiyo Kabuki Brush is all that and more. When I was in New York this spring for Fashion Week, Cindy, one of the NARS Senior Makeup Artists, showed me how to use this brush and I’ve never looked back.
The Yachiyo Kabuki Brush is made of goat hair and picks up just the right amount of color and deposits it on your cheeks in the most natural looking way. I’ve found it invaluable for using with really bright blush shades, where other blush brushes seem to load up too much color and then give you the “clown face”. Not a good look.
In addition to applying blush, the Yachiyo Kabuki Brush can be used to contour cheeks, a highlighting brush or even as a larger blender brush on the outer portion of the eyelid. The cool wrapped handle adds to it’s charm. Not a day goes by that I don’t reach for it.
