"This is one of my favourite brushes. I use this brush under the eyes to create a smooth, creaseless finish. It is ideal for applying my favorite under-eye loose powder. My actors love the soft, silky, smooth feel of this brush."
"Blend, Blend, Blend…This is another one of my favourite blending brushes. I use a clean BOM-44 under the eyes without any product, to soften and blend right before my actress's close up. I also like to use it to add a wash of undefined color across the eyelids."
"This is the ideal brush for chiseling and contouring. I use this under the cheekbones and around the jaw to sculpt and square the jawline. The perfect angle brush for powder contour."
"I am a sucker for a duo fiber brush and this one is ideal! I use this to stipple a final pop of powder cheek color exactly where I want it to be. I also love to use this with pressed powder products to reduce shine in specific areas."
"I am so in love with this brush. On my last show, this was the ideal tool to apply the perfect 1940’s red lipstick to my actresses. This brush has the ideal space to fit into the natural contours of the lip to shape and define, giving you a clean finish. I LOVE ❤️ 💕 this brush."
"A powder brush like no other. I am such a fanatic about my setting and finishing powders and this is the perfect brush to use with both. I use this brush to simultaneously dust off excess and blend loose powder to give me that smooth airbrushed look. I will also use this powder brush to apply pressed finishing powder to complete the final look. An ideal blending tool."
"The BOM-200 is my ideal foundation brush for a smooth, flawless application with all of my favourite foundation products."
"This brush is perfect for applying cream blush to the apples of the cheeks for a soft glow or foundation application."
