About Sonia G

I am the girl with a zillion brushes and clearly not enough control, extreme when possible, often irrational, forever passionate, only occasionally wise but I'll always care about you.

BLENDER PRO

Blending brushes is an obsession for me and I believe for many! They are so extremely necessary and although we all have our preferences, the most sought for brush for blending is probably this round and slightly tapered type of shape. From all the brushes that I own and used, this is also probably the [...]

CREASE PRO

I always loved this type of brushes and there are so many wonderful ones out there, with this Crease Pro brush I was aiming for a directional shape but with enough splaying out for an application without harsh edges. It's a medium size crease brush with a quite firm bundling throughout the whole length of [...]

WORKER PRO

For the PRO series, the “Worker” is slightly different in shape compared to Worker Two, it also offers a versatile experience as it can cover so many roles and purposes but it is now designed to do it with more precision, also appropriate for smaller eyes. This Worker PRO will mutate into a different brush [...]

BUILDER PRO

The Builders are packing type of brushes, the difference compared to Builder One and Two is that this PRO version builds the intensity more progressively, allowing you to layer and control the opacity with more finesse. The particularity of this Builder PRO is the dense layers of bristles on both sides,  they offer lots of [...]

PENCIL PRO

For the PRO version, I imagined a smaller version of the current Pencil Two, allowing more precision and dome shaped. This shape will help to cover as many purposes as possible and offers an even and reliable application whatever the angle. Useful for: Contouring the eyes Smoking out Intensifying the crease placement Building the outer [...]

NEW BRUSHES!

After the Fundamental set that offers the possibility to do a whole face and eye look, here comes a second and new batch of brushes. With these brushes I wanted to cover specific needs or a slightly different approach to make-up application that I felt was worth experimenting!   I was inspired by my own preferences. [...]

SMUDGER TWO

While the Smudger One is meant to be used only with powders, this Smudger Two can handle both and will shine with more difficult textures like shimmers and metallics. It's purpose is in between a push liner and pencil, offering a lot of control with the application without harsh edges. If you feel more adventurous, [...]

PENCIL TWO

Intensify with precision, design, define the outer v, smudge, highlight... I wanted to give this extra soft pencil as many uses as possible! It's the perfect size to brighten the inner eye area and with its domed shape and high density it can handle anything- whether it’s powder or cream. HOW TO Pick the product, cream [...]

FACE ONE

This was the very first brush I wanted to work on, the most exciting, finding the perfect combination of density/softness/material was so important and this is a brush I was truly missing on a daily basis. I was picturing the perfect mineral foundation brush: With this exact density: it follows the features perfectly, all the [...]

WORKER TWO

Similar brush to the WORKER ONE,  both Workers have similar size specs, the Worker Two fluffs out a little bit more compared to the Worker One, the Two's ferrule is less pinched, so the shape is less flat. The Worker One offers more precision, more strength to pick up product and a more powerful blending, the [...]

SCULPT TWO

With this fan, I was aiming for a super strong tool that could pick up hard textures or sheer products that I love but that I find difficult to build up on the skin. This is the brush if you enjoy a sharp and more dramatic designed contour or highlight, if you need something to [...]

SCULPT FOUR

It's dense, asymmetric, the shorter side offers more precision and strength and drives the application benefiting from the longer side for blending. As a highlighter, it will work best with : formulas that are harder, more difficult to work with and to buid up matte formulas where you want to be able to place, work [...]

BUILDER TWO

The goal was to create a shader with benefits, to build any type of product and bring it -gradually- to the desired intensity. The very dense bundling of the bristles and its fullness up to the tip allow for work at any angle. Browbone, blending, smudging or polishing, this is also the eyeshadow brush that [...]

SMUDGER ONE

I was aiming for a very soft pencil that could deliver a bold placement with powder products. The density at the base offers stability while the thin tip delivers a precise and strong application. It's purpose is in between a push liner and pencil, offering a lot of control with the application without harsh edges. [...]

My blog has helped the Kumano manufactures to have more presence internationaly, it also helped other businesses around Japanese Fude (brushes) to kick start, I have never asked anything in return, never been paid for my reviews, when I started the blog I didn't even know that I would one day be in PR lists and [...]

BASE ONE

I wanted to combine natural and synthetic bristles in a shape and a density that could work with both thin and thick liquids or creams, as versatile as possible. The bristles are quite short, it has firmness and density but it remains supple,  you don't need to put a lot of pressure on the brush, it [...]
