I was pleasantly surprised to know that local mineral makeup distributor LovingMinerals.com has designed their own kabuki brush aptly named Handy Kabuki! Unlike the normal short handled kabuki brushes, I found the brush head slightly less compact and dense – and that is a GOOD thing!
You see, a slightly more pliable brush head means that it will not apply powder as thickly as a regular dense kabuki brush, and it can be applied towards a myriad of uses. I can use this one Handy Kabuki to do my whole face! Let me tell you how 🙂
Handy Kabuki for powder foundation
If you use mineral powder foundation, this operates the same way as the regular kabuki brush. You swirl the powder, apply and buff it into your skin.
If you use a kabuki brush for compact powder (as I do) you do the same, swipe the powder, apply and blend.
The Handy Kabuki applies powder with sufficient coverage yet not too thickly so you don’t end up with blotchy powder coverage. Blending is a breeze because its so soft on the skin. The brush head feels about as soft as the Everyday Minerals long handled kabuki but at the same time, feels slightly more substantial. I found that my EDM flat top brush has started splaying which is starting to bug me.
