Chikuhodo MK-12 Portable Cheek Brush, Maki-e Series
This product is currently sold out.
Functional and fancy, the MK-12 Cheek Brush is about the size of a tube of lipstick when retracted. The case is decorated with a pretty cherry blossom flower design. The bristles are a combination of grey squirrel and horse, meaning they’re very soft and not at all scratchy, but make them an affordable little treasure.
This brush is ideal for applying blush and highlighter over cheekbones, adding a little radiance and definition to decolletage, and touching up T-zone throughout the day with a dust of powder foundation.
Chikuhodo collaborated with prestigious lacquerware brand Yamanaka-Shikki to produce the stunning range of Maki-e brushes. The brush body is made with the traditional Japanese gold and silver lacquerware techniques. Lacquerware is traditional craft of Ishikawa prefecture, and Yamanaka-Shikki have been producing their premium-quality, certified Royal Warrant goods for around 450 years.
