The BEST makeup brushes Kalamakeup can offer
After an extensive and comprehensive research for the best makeup brushes throughout the last decade of being a makeup artist, I have finally come across the softest and most long lasting brushes created by the most skilful craftsmen in Japan.
Trust me, I have bought more than a hundred brushes from different high end brands and countries, such as London, New York, Paris, Korea, Taiwan, etc. However, I have never experienced such soft and yet durable brushes until I met "them"!
In order to ensure my clients and students to experience and possess such high quality of extremely soft makeup brushes, I decided to order and sell them under the name of "Kalamakeup".
If you ask a professional how to judge whether a makeup brush is good or not, he/ she will tell you the most important part of a brush is the tip of the hair. And of course, the type of hair which the brush is composed of is also a crucial factor.
A perfect hair tip allows you to freely draw lines of different thickness and tone in excellent control. You can glide it gently and freely on your skin to achieve a flawless finish. It helps makeup application easier, enables the makeup to last much longer and also avoids any irritation on the sensitive skin.
In the cosmetics industry, most brush manufacturers lose the hair tip in the production process as they use the method of "laser cut". This is a technique which they cut and trim the edges/ tips of their hair to achieve the desired shapes and style so as to provide optimum application of a certain cosmetics product.
However, there are a few disadvantages of using this laser cut method. Due to the lack of accuracy with which the hair can be shaped and the fact that the tips of the hair are cut away, the brushes become more stiff and structured. For people who have sensitive skin, these brushes might cause irritation on their skin. Moreover, makeup application is comparatively less flawless and not as long lasting.
Amazingly, all the Kalamakeup brushes I ordered from Japan do not rely on any machine manufacturing, they are all hand-crafted by the most experienced and skilled craftsmen.
Furthermore, some of these brushes are made with blue squirrel hair which is by far the softest hair you can find among all the other types of hair.
