Koyudo Three Beauties of the World, Yang Guifei (RSNY-2)
This special new limited-edition release (just 100 brushes) by Koyudo, "Three Great Beauties" features three brushes, each inspired by a different woman: Cleopatra, Yang Guifei, and Ono no Komachi. Each brush is produced individually, entirely by hand, and no two brushes are identical in design. Each face brush has its own story to tell, and the moment you pick up the brush, your own story begins.
Brush length: 160mm
Bristle length 54mm
Bristle shape: Round
Bristle material: Saibikoho Goat
This brush is inspired by the famous Chinese beauty, Yang Guifei. Just like Yang Guifei herself, this brush expresses an ethereal sensuality. The red handle represents the color of tears that she is said to have shed in her childhood, and the white coat color represents dazzling beauty.
A unique collaboration of masters
Behind the brushes is an unprecedented collaboration of three masters in their fields: Hiroto Rakuso, one of Japan's premier gold leaf artists; Yoshiaki Nakano, an internationally revered senior makeup artist; and Yoshiki Uematsu, one of Japan's leading brush artisans working in the town of Kumano in Hiroshima Prefecture.
The story behind the collection
Nakano, who has often visited Kyoto for business over the years, was deeply impressed by the art and cultural assets of the ancient city. Through his friendship with Hiroto Rakuso, a unique foil artist born in Nishijin, Kyoto, known for his unparalleled sense and skill, Nakano developed a deeper connection with and understanding of these traditional crafts.
Nakano has often visited Rakuso's atelier in Kyoto, where tradition and modernity thrive. He believed that traditional techniques he witness could be used to create something far beyond my imagination. The result would be a work of art that embodies the worldviews of both artists, designed to surprise and captivate all who see it.
As a makeup artist, Nakano's choice in product was naturally the world of beauty: a cosmetic brush made in the famous brushmaking town of Kumano, Hiroshima Prefecture. Awaiting the collaborators there was Yoshitaka Uematsu, who entered the world of brush making at just 18 years old. The three, who share a sensitivity as artists and a passion for handcrafting products with a deep sense of value, decided to collaborate. They began making a prototype immediately, a combination of the craft of gold leaf and brushmaking.
In addition to the color of the foil and brush, the three parties pursued the feel and comfort of the brush, not allowing any compromises. To create the perfect brush, there were many discussions, and made many prototypes. Finally, the brushes in the "Three Great Beauties of the World" collection were born.

Why Japanese Makeup Brushes?
Handmade by Artisans
From selecting the finest bristles and hand-bundling them into shape, assembling the brushes, and applying decorative elements.
Centuries of History
Japanese makeup brushes evolved from the traditional craft of calligraphy-brush making, which dates back hundreds of years.
Uncut Bristle Tips
Rather than being cut by machines into shape, Japanese Fude bundled in molds to take advantage of natural fine tips.
The finest natural bristles, innovative synthetic fibers, wooden handles, and traditional finishing techniques like lacquerware.
Uncut bristle tips are known to make a difference in product pick-up, softness on skin, and a smooth, even application.
