How to Use a Kabuki Brush
For the longest time, I used whatever brush came with my cosmetics when I applied it. After all, that’s the brush they sent so that must be the right choice, right?
Wrong. Generally speaking, cosmetic companies include a generic, not that great quality brush with their cosmetics just in case you don’t have one. It isn’t necessarily the best brush for the job.
Kabuki brush uses
Most bronzers and face powders include a small brush that can be used to apply the powder to your face. However, you will have a much more polished and natural look once you learn how to use a kabuki brush instead.
A kabuki brush is a makeup brush that has a short stem and dense bristles that are generally rounded. These brushes are most often used for mineral powders, bronzers, and blushes but they can also be used with liquid foundation.
What is the kabuki brush for?
This type of brush can also be used to blend together your makeup for a more natural look. After I apply my primer, foundation, and bronzer, I generally use a kabuki brush to remove any excess powder.
Removing excess powder gives you a more natural look rather than a heavily made up look. The rounded bristles make a kabuki brush the perfect choice for blending out your makeup.

Best way to use this brush
To use a kabuki brush to give your makeup a softer look, take the brush and dip it into your powdered blush or bronzer. Gently tap the brush against the side of the container to remove any excess powder.
Slowly swirl the brush onto your face, blending the makeup and taking away any severe lines.
Remember that in order to keep your brush in the best condition, you need to wash it regularly. Once it has been washed, allow it to dry naturally.
Store the brush bristle side UP in a small jar to keep the bristles in the best shape possible.
