About Base One
This newer and softer version of the Base One brush works liquid and cream products of sheer to medium coverage with an airbrushed finish and without irritating your skin. It has mainly been designed with the purpose of diffusing cream blushes, bronzers or sculpting products without moving or altering the makeup underneath.
It is bundled with soft natural bristles and topped with a layer of silky nylon fibres. This combination gives the brush stability and movement, it feels very gentle on the skin yet delivers smooth blended results.
“This newer version of the Base One was primarily designed for the application of cream products like blush, bronzer, contour or highlight. The core of the brush is bundled with natural bristles, sokoho goat, the synthetic bristles that extend further are nylon. In comparison to the previous Base One, this updated version is softer and has more flexibility. While the silky nylon bristles will deposit and diffuse the products, the dense core of natural bristles will offer support, blend and help absorb the excess.” - Sonia G.
Why It’s Special
- These newer nylon bristles are ideal when paired with cream products, they allow a soft gradual application that can be easily built in intensity.
- Each brush is handbound by master artisans in Japan using traditional brushmaking techniques for unparalleled performance and craftsmanship.
- The sturdy handle is made from dense, sustainably harvested maple wood and coated with four layers of pigment and lacquer for a rich, dimensional finish.

This brush is so underrated!
I haven't been using any sponges since I received this brush. I don't feel like using animal hair brush for foundation especially liquid foundation initially, but I saw in description that this brush mixes goat hair and nylon, I think Sonia G will show me the magic and she did!!!This brush is extremely soft and precise in the top, it's softer than any synthetic hair I've ever seen. And it can not only replace sponges but also fingers. And I think the precision it offers is better than usual sponges' pores. It absorbs liquid foundation evenly and give out products evenly in a very thin layer. It applies foundation super fast as any other Sonia G brushes do regarding efficiency. And the size is also fits undereye and eyelids. Products that I haven't been using since purchased like Kat Von D lock-it foundation and Charlotte Tilbury liquid highlighter, Base One saved them!!! It's really a game-changing brush. In addtion, I don't know the technique but this brush weirdly dries out quickly, faster than usual dense synthetic foudantion brush (I own a Mac 170).3 found this helpful.Melissa L. May 23, 2021
Soft and functional
I was never one to use sponges, so I went from fingers to brushes. This one is my favorite. It is so soft and doesn’t feel scratchy like the koyudo fu-pa. Blends in my foundation without leaving streaks either. I’m never turning back.1 found this helpful.Melisa Y. May 21, 2021
I’ve waited many many months for this to be restocked. So when I finally got it recently (the newer one) of course I couldn’t wait to use it (did not even wash it)! Maybe I am using it wrong? It applies my foundation streaky. I’ve tried washing it a few times, tried using it with a few different types of foundation (from creamy to matte to lightweight etc) but I just can’t get it right. That aside, it’s really soft and a very beautiful brush. Handle size and weight is right. Just need to figure out how to use it correctly. I truly love all my Sonia G brushes and they’ve all performed beyond 5 stars. Sorry to give this one 3 stars and not 5.1 found this helpful.
