Kabuki brushes

Post by gulaben on Wed Jul 11, 2012 10:48 pm

I remember people talking about kabuki brushes a few months ago, and i've now seen them for sale near where i am. Are they worth getting? And what are they used for?

I adore them for fast body art coverage, and they go on soft and even, but they are a pain to wash out. They hold so much paint!

I LOVE kabuki brushes for bodypainting! I don't get the very expensive ones though, I bought mine at the Make Up Artist Design show in Germany, for about 5 to 7 a piece.

They are indeed a pain to wash out, and you have to let them dry for ages, or they start smelling horrible, and you have to wash them all over again...

I love them. Mostly use them for covering bodies, but i can do a quick, even base of white on a face in no time at all. I do have the fancier ones that Vargas sells (Royal & Langnickel)... sooo soft.

For drying, if I don't have time to let them air dry all the way, I swirl them on a hand towel. It won't completely dry them, but it does take a lot of the water out of them.

Love them! So soft and kids don't flinch from it when applying around their eyes like they do with the sponge.

Useless for me... seeing as all brushes have to be cleaned and sanitized between people. No way to use them for FP.

I have a couple that were a gift but actually haven't tried them... I am pretty fast with my giant sponge and I use cream paints or liquids for body painting.

I mean to try them... really Neutral

I have 3 or 4. I use them primarily for body basing when I'm not airbrushing. I really only bought them because I like saying "kabuki"... over and over again. It's therapudic when wearing stickly lipgloss... affraid

I love my $3 ELF long-handled kabukis. They're excellent for laying down a quick white base for skulls and seem to bug little boys less than sponging. I also use them for body painting. And, I use my own to apply my foundation.
