MUFE Artisan Brushes - Why brushes not fingers?

Dear Friends

It has been quite some time since I blog. Today I am going to talk about MUFE artisan brushes.
Do you prefer using brush or finger when you do your makeup? 

Make Up For Ever (MUFE) has launched 75 artisan brushes a few months ago. Although the brushes are made from 100% engineered non-natural fibers, they are as soft as the feel of natural hair.  I am really impressed with the look and feel of these brushes. No wonder the creation of these brushes is considered as a brush revolution!
The MUFE artisan brush collection has so many different types of designs - tapered, trapeze, square, fan, flared, round, pointy and angled to allow optimum control in applying, blending, sculpting, shading and lining of make-up.

We were very lucky to have Ms Erika Saenz, Regional Educational Manager MUFE South East Asia to walk us through the features of the brushes.

There are 3 types of bristles on Artisan brushes:

1. Straight

2. Wavy

3. Straight and wavy

 Before that, I have no idea that there are so many different textures of bristles.

My understanding of the 3 different textures of hair is:

Straight hair – to pick up more colors for more defined application

Wavy hair – suitable for application of loose powder

Straight & wavy – to achieve the in between effect


The unique features of MUFE artisan brushes:

1.       Premium craftsmanship – each brush is hand-made by specialists

2.       100% engineered fibers for skin comfort

3.       Ultra-resistant and humidity-proof – made from brass base with 3 top coating of nickel with gun metal lacquer

4.       Made with eco-certified wood

5.       A 2-in-1 accessory – each brush has a beveled tip bottom that is designed to mix 2 shades of liquid foundation to achieve the perfect tone.
Why brushes, not fingers?

1.       Precision - Unlike fingers, brushes can distribute colors more evenly

2.       Coverage – You can control the amount of products

3.       Buff & Blend – Can achieve a smoother and more natural look

4.       Save time & Money – Fingers tend to pick up more product and create wastage

Ms Erika also did a makeup demo on a model. The makeup was applied using fingers on half of the face while the other half, Ms Erika used the MUFE brushes. It is very obvious that the side where brushes were used looked more even toned and defined.
The makeup on the right was done using brushes. The color is more intense and well blended.

There are a few MUFE brushes that I think is very versatile and worth to invest in. Here are my recommendations:
  • #260 Bent Eyeliner Brush - it is an angled brush (30 degree angle) that is designed for applying eyeliner to its precision. It is able to draw a 1mm line with precision.
  • #128 Precision Powder Brush – A hybrid between a brush and a puff
  • #124 Powder kabuki – it has straight and wavy fibers to apply HD powder and powder foundation for a bonafide airbrush effect in seconds
  • #158 Double-Ended Sculpting Brush – Use the angled end to place your blusher for a slimmer and uplifted appearance followed with the fluffy end to blend away harsh lines.
  • #204 Double-Ended Shader & Smudger Eye Brush – This brush will help you to achieve smokey eyes in minutes
  • #154 Buffer Blush Brush – For stress free application of liquid foundation as it can create a poreless finish

If you don’t own many brushes, you may consider investing in MUFE artisan brushes. Just get the basic few that I have listed above and you will enjoy doing your daily makeup with fabulous result. The price ranges from RM37 – RM235.

Since Christmas is coming soon, you might as well get yourself some MUFE artisan brushes that can last you for a long long time.
