With a MAKEUP FOREVER Artisan brush in my hand I feel like a true artiste. My face is anything but a smooth canvas, but you wouldn’t know is based on how these bristles glide smoothly over its contours. These brushes are in a league of their own!
“This brush is an extension of the hand and is a fundamental tool for a makeup artist, whether he is a professional or amateur makeup artist, his canvas is the face.” –Dany Sanz
MAKEUP FOREVER’s introduction of 76 cutting edge brushes makes it the most expansive luxury brush collection available on the market. This extensive set ranges from everyday must-haves to highly customized tools to create the most intricate artistic effects. Dany Sanz perfected each and every brush throughout a five year process that involved testing a variety of synthetic fibers that mimic the silky softness of natural hair. She consulted with renowned brush manufacturer Raphaēl on the island of Mauritius to create specialized brushes that require unparalleled craftsmanship. The construction of each brush involved 25 stages and 30 people from start to finish, including the tedious task of setting the each hair in place with tweezers instead of scissors.
What further differentiates this brush collection from any other is the specific fiber technology that exists in several diameters and types: wavy or straight. When fibers are straight, application is more generous and precise, while wavy bristles are more splayed, allowing for a lighter and freer application. A unique combination of the two fiber textures gives infinite creative possibilities.

Pictured above are brushes #150 and #240. #150 has replaced my usual blush and powder brush. It has the perfect angle to catch the cheekbone for a contour or precise application of colour. It is also perfect to dust my Laura Mercier Invisible Finishing Powder along my T-Zone. #240 is a compact shader brush that can be used with eye shadows and pigments in either a swiping or patting motion, depending on the desired colour pay-off thanks to its hybrid straight and wavy bristles. The flat top is also wonderful for defining the crease and the lower lashline.
