sponge or kabuki brush

Post by billiebcc on Sun Mar 18, 2012 2:41 pm

When you put the background layer down, do you outline first and then do the background? Or do you do the background first?
Also do you sponge or use a kabuki brush? If you use the kabuki bush do you just buy the regular ones for foundation makeup?
Sorry I couldn't seem to find these answers, I did search.

Thanks!

Background first for me and typically sponge. Kabukis can be great for large areas and small number of clientele but I like using one sponge per face at events.

For bellies, I like to outline the design with white paint then do my background around it. I don't like too many layers.



I'm a sponge girl for bases. Not used a kabuki much. Found them a bit streaky, but that might be the quality of the brush I have.

I like to sketch out the design in white paint and then fill in the first layer with sponges. If it is a very large, time consuming layer of one color, I will reach for the kabuki brush. I am able to get an effect pretty close to airbrush with the kabuki, applying in a circular motion.
For face painting, I always use sponges. I did meet a face painter who absolutely loved her mini kabukis though.

I used a Kabuki for these oriental themed shots. Technically NSFW.
