For optimal results, dip the Kabuki brush into your beauty product of choice and tap off any excess powder or product on the side of the container to avoid applying too much. Use the brush to apply the product in a stroking or circular motion over your skin. This circular motion helps to distribute the product evenly and blend it seamlessly into your skin. For loose powders, you can also use a swirling motion to pick up the product and apply it evenly on your face or other parts of your body. To achieve a flawless finish, buff the brush in circular motions over your skin to blend and soften any harsh lines. After each use with a liquid product, it's important to clean your Kabuki brush with a mild soap or brush cleanser. Rinse thoroughly and reshape the bristles before letting it air dry. In order to continue to use the kabuki brush optimally, it is advisable to open the packaging at the top (the side without text). This keeps the brush intact and in optimal condition.
