A few months ago, Make Up For Ever introduced their new range of 75 Artisan Brushes, all synthetic from a variety of non-natural fibers. According to MUFE Creator and Artistic Director Dany Sanz, the brushes are a technological breakthrough for MUFE as these fibers are close to the silky softness that natural hair brushes offer.
Exclusively hand-made by highly qualified specialists, very single brush of the MUFE Brush Collection requires 25 different production steps, involving 30 people in each hand-crafted manufacturing process. The brushes are then submitted to over 50 quality checks before they are released to be sold internationally. Each brush is a unique creation and by combining significant features (fiber type + diameter + density + shape), it enables a multitude of combinations of tufts which allow specific, multiple and diverse make-up applications.
These brushes come in assorted shapes and sizes – trapeze, tapered, square, fan, flared, round, pointy and angled – to allow for optimized control in applying, blending, sculpting, shading and lining of make-up. To ensure that each brush will be instantly recognized as a MUFE brush, Dany specifically chose exclusive bi-color fibers for the brush head, black for the tip and deep-red brown on the bottom. Brush bristles are also sculpted and positioned with great care, to ensure that softness and performance of each bristle is maintained.
The Classic Kabuki #124 Powder Kabuki is an all-time favourite. This all-rounder brush applies fine powders like HD Powder and powder foundation in a diffused fashion for a bonafide airbrush effect in seconds.
The Blusher Blender #158 Double-Ended Sculpting Brush – use the angled end to achieve a sculpted blush placement for a slimmer and uplifted appearance and follow with the fluffy end to blend away harsh lines and diffuse the glow. This is the ideal sculpting and highlighting brush.
All the brushes are unbelievably soft for synthetic brushes. You’ve got to see and feel them but once you do, you just might fall in love with every single one of them.
