FAST FACTS: Part of the Makie series and features a Kaga Maki-e floral design on the lacquered handle; made with 100% high quality blue squirrel hair; sweeps pigments onto skin for a natural finish with a slightly flattened tip; delivers sheer coverage with super-soft yet flexible bristles; works with loose and pressed powders
PERFECT FOR: Using with setting powders
Beautiful and well made!

”Needless to say that this brush is so stunning and soft! Ok so on the practical side… Pictured below are Chikuhodo Z1, MK2, Hakuhodo S103 and Wayne Goss brow brush. This brush is flat and not as dense as Z1, therefore it is good for pressed powders, and because of the density and shape, it does not pick up too much powder, and the flat shape helps getting into corners of your face, i.e. chin and sides of the nose. This brush gives a sheer coverage and will be great for people with normal to dry skin, because it doesn’t give you too much powder to dry your face out or get caky [sic], but you still get to set your make up. I also think it will be great for summer when setting make up with powder because of how sheer the coverage is. Due to its shape, I wouldn’t use a “swirl” motion when using this brush. I find the best way to use it is to lay it flat in the press powder, both sides, and then lay it flat on the skin, either using a patting motion or drag gently and slowly.”
