"The super soft, paddle shape of this brush allows me to apply and blend foundation on the face with ease. The size also makes it perfect for quickly blending and filling in body makeup when I’m creating a full body character."
"The flat, duo-fiber bristles of the BOM-255 is great for stippling powder and alcohol colors to create a subtle texture on the skin. The size of the brush lets me get into tight areas but is big enough I can cover a lot of area quickly."
"I love the size, feel, and taper of this brush for applying eye shadow or blending contour powder wherever I use it. It is also great for getting no-color powder onto prosthetic edges around the eye socket."
"The angled ferrule of this brush makes it a must have for your makeup kit. The angle makes getting into tight areas a breeze. It also works great for applying prosthetic adhesive in difficult areas like edges around the eyes. I have several in my kit and keep some specifically for glue application."
"This is my go-to brush for very fine details. It’s perfect for applying liner to define the eye but the soft bristles of the brush holds alcohol activated makeup very well and is great for creating very small capillaries or details like freckles or age spots."
"Like the BOM-481, this is a great brush for detail work and works great with alcohol makeup. The tapered tip and soft fibers of this brush allows me to create line details that can vary in width as I apply them. This is especially helpful when applying veins and mottling."
"I love this duel-tipped brush for working on eyebrows. The angled brush works perfectly to fill in or define the brows with powder and the bristle wand is great for shaping the brows. I also use the bristle wand on short facial hair and to apply temporary hair color in sideburns and facial hair."
