The DMKC Small Foundation Brush is a smaller version of the Large Foundation brush. Designed to be used as a Foundation (creme type), this brush is made with a bronze handle. The hair in the brush is not the typical inferior quality Takalon but the finest synthetic hair available: Toray. Synthetic Toray hair is the finest bristle for Creme or wet makeup because of its spring and durability. This brush will not fray like Takalon Brushes do. Takalon Bristle brushes are inexpensive brushes mainly used for artist brushes and are not recommended by brush designers and engineers as a favored cosmetic brush. When you feel the Small Foundation Brush you notice a perfect balance in your hand for professional application and a luxury soft bristle you will not feel in any other brush. The Small Foundation Brush is packaged in a clear acrylic tube which protects the brush between usage. We recommend DMK Non-Flammable brush cleaner as safest and best brush cleaner to remove any makeup, and will leave your brush cleaned and sanitized.
