What brushes do you use for complexion makeup?


OMNIA Professional - BOM-215 Professional Makeup Brush

This is a proper “paint brush” for complexion. The longer fibers remain soft and flexible when wet with liquid or cream products, and the chiseled tip enables broad or precise strokes when you hold the brush at different angles.


OMNIA Professional - BOM-180 Professional Makeup Brush

This is my dream complexion brush. The domed kabuki shape allows me to effortlessly buff and blend liquids, creams and powders when I’m sculpting a face.

Getting a perfect blend can be so tricky! What brush can I use to make sure every detail is right?


OMNIA Professional - BOM-448 Professional Makeup Brush

The mini-kabuki style head of this brush is ideal for blending and buffing under-eye concealer or blurring edges between precisely placed colors where a larger brush would be unmanageable.

What kind of brush is best for all-over powder or bronzer?


OMNIA Professional - BOM-130 Professional Makeup Brush

Most people love a BIG floppy powder brush, not me. I like more control and precise placement. This pointed powder brush is dense enough to feel luxurious, but also tapered enough to allow precise application of finishing powders and bronzers.


Do you have any blush or highlighting favorites?


OMNIA Professional - BOM-110 Professional Makeup Brush

I dislike dense packed blush brushes. I love this brush because it has less fibers, so it gently kisses the complexion and lays down a whisper of blush. It’s also perfect for laying down a halo of highlight on the top of the cheekbone.
