Inspired by traditional Japanese beauty rituals Kabuki Theater, the NARS Kabuki Artisan Brushes meld heritage with modernity, in both concept and function. Small and flat, the angular design of the Kabuki Ita Brush makes it ideal for controlled application of powder and color. It is also excellent for blending, contouring and highlighting the complexion. Made with very soft Pen Super Goat hair, which is ideal for blending pigments
The shape and design of this NARS brush are perfect for a fool proof contour. I mean as long as you have a general sense for where the contour shadow goes on your face you will get it right using this brush.
You can create a dense angular contour shadow or a delicate blown out shadow with ease. The thin shape of the brush head allows for precise placement and good blendability. This is a must have for personal and professional use!
It does best with a very gentle cleaning.
I've heard a lot of good things about the Ita brush, but didn't really think much of it because I have so many contour brushes already. The other day, I was at Nordstrom and they had it in stock (which was rare because it always sold out). I decided it purchase it and see what it was all about... The other day, I did my makeup using the Ita brush, and oh my god... where has this been all my life?. If you like contouring on a daily basis, this brush is awesome for that. You can make it as harsh as you like, or give it a softer look, your choice. It's awesome. Love!!!
although you might think it's useless because you can contour with a regular smaller brush, I think it is amazing for people who are into hardcore contouring as I am, I have a really round face and contouring whenever I wear makeup is essential and this handy tool makes it so easy and quick! love it and would recommend it.
