Our brand promise? No more bad skin days
Pressed Powder products: lightly dip the brush into the product and then tap off the excess.
Work the product into your skin with light pressure, holding the brush at a right angle to the face. Use short sweeping motions in half-moon shapes, upwards and outwards. Press – blend – press – blend. Avoid using long sweeping motions. For best results, start from the middle of your face and work your way to the outer edges.
Always start with a small amount of product and the brush. The level of coverage can easily be adjusted from light to full coverage by adding another layer until the desired result is reached.About the Brushes
MAKETHEMAKE's unique brush design, with its extremely dense and textured bristles are made from ultra-smooth Taklon, a vegan synthetic fibre designed to deliver a better user experience than natural hair bristles. Each brush is designed to deliver the perfect amount of product onto your skin. This new technology works the product directly into the skin (instead of brushing it over the surface), showcasing the skin's radiance and creating a natural, flawless finish.
The result is always natural-looking skin, regardless of the desired level of coverage. The application technique and the warmth of the skin in combination with each brush’s design and soft, dense bristles, ensures all makeup products blend seamlessly into the skin.
The coverage level can easily be adjusted from light to full coverage by applying multiple layers of product until the desired result is achieved.
These off-white bristles are packed extremely tightly together to deliver a soft yet precise result, regardless which level of coverage you go for or what products you use. Taklon has a smoother surface than natural hair, making it a more hygienic material due to the surface being harder for bacteria to attach to. This also makes it easy to clean the brushes. The bristles in each brush have different levels of coarseness, making it perfect for picking up the product and dispersing the optimal amount onto your skin.
The special texture of MAKETHEMAKE´s brushes is completely unique and the ‘soft focus’ result on your skin is in a league of its own. The short MAKETHEMAKE brush shaft allows for close, precise application and fits easily into any makeup bag. The flat bottom of the shaft means it can also stand up between applications.Storage and Cleaning
It is advised to your brushes weekly with our Weekly Brush Cleanser and Brush Cleansing Bowl, specially designed for makeup brushes. Be sure to squeeze out any excess water from the brush afterwards. Allow the brushes to dry by laying them down on a towel. By cleaning and taking good care of your brushes it will increase their lifespan and ensure a hygienic application onto your skin.
Between weekly cleaning of your brushes, we advise that you spray the brush with our antibacterial Quick Brush Freshener, designed for make-up tools.
MAKETHEMAKE´s brushes can be stored in our practical Brush Bag when not in use which is both hygienic and protects the brushes and their lifespan. You can also use the Brush Bag for storing other makeup items.
