Busting Out the Japonesque Makeup Brushes
Do you use the sponge-tipped applicators that come with your makeup? Do you swipe on eye shadow with inferior brushes or use your hands to apply foundation, concealer or blush?
Over the years, I’ve found that 99% of the brushes that come with makeup just aren’t good enough. Your best bet? Buy some nice brushes separately.
(And if you don’t buy makeup brushes separately, you can’t store them in a super cute pink-gravel jar!)
Speaking of nice brushes, I got to try four of Japonesque’s makeup brushes recently.
From the Japonesque Pro line, I’ve tried the Pro Blush, Pro Angled Foundation, Pro Concealer and Pro Eye Detailer – Medium brushes.
Japonesque Pro Blush Brush

The only problem is that the brush is so wide that it takes a bit of maneuvering to get in tight spots around your nose. It gets a…
Japonesque Pro Concealer Brush
No more putting your concealer on with your fingers. The Pro Concealer Brush can do it for you.
But, if you like using concealer over wide swathes of your face, you should probably use the Pro Angled Foundation Brush instead. The small head of the Pro Concealer Brush would take forever if you were using it over your entire face. I give it a…
Japonesque Pro Eye Detailer – Medium
The medium Pro Eye Detailer is a good eye shadow brush for shading and defining.
You can use this brush for regular blended eye shadow application, but it’s a real star when you want a sharp line, such as in the crease. I give it an…
Have you tried any of these brushes? What did you think?
