In Part I, Angela Levin (the makeup artist Chanel trusts with their celebrity clientele) demonstrated how to blend, line, and otherwise enhance our eye areas, and now for Part II (and a bonus—yes!) she demonstrates why kabuki brushes exist. Listed below are a few notes for reference, but watch the videos for the exciting live-action loading and application demonstrations of five non-standard-issue face brushes:
-A combo-bristle blending foundation brush is great for creating a diffused, thin veil of coverage—use circular motions for application.
-The angled powder brush can be used for face powder or for bronzer application. Load both sides and sweep back-and-forth across skin.
-The fan brush is great for subtle contouring.
-Clean your flat, stiff foundation brush after applying the foundation but before blending it out. That way you're not just pushing product around.
-Chanel's Retractable Kabuki Brush is perfect for touch-ups because it closes, saving leftover powder from the initial application for midday dustings.
