Fero Professional Lip/Concealer Brush
The Lip and Concealer Brush is a synthetic hair flat domed brush with a head that is 0.5cm wide and 1.0cm deep and a handle 16.5cm long, including the ferrule. It is made from fine gold nylon hair with a flattened silver brass covered ferrule (filbert). It is ideal for applying and blending lipstick or concealer to small areas.
Nylon and taklon are the most common synthetics used in make-up brushes today. Unlike natural hair, nylon and taklon do not have the scales or cuticles and hence are not so absorbent and will not trap make-up media the way natural hair will. As such taklon make-up brushes, which are commonly white in colour are commonly used as a concealer brush or liquid cream foundation brush as they are more effective at laying down the product. Taklon is used as a more affordable substitute for sable but lacks durability as it tends to fan out and become stiffer with use, so is less suitable for powders. Nylon is commonly used for eyebrow brushes as it is harder than taklon.
How to clean your brushTo clean your make-up brush you should immerse only the hair of your brush in brush cleaner and agitate.
If you donít have any brush cleaner then you can apply a mild shampoo to your
fingertips and gently shampoo the hair in the direction it lies. You would then rinse gently under running water, making sure that you keep the brush at a slight angle with the hair tips facing downwards.
Do not let any cleaner or water run inside the ferrule, as it will weaken the glue and causes shedding and wobbly handles. Make sure you keep the brush at a slight angle with the hair tips facing downwards,
then press the brush gently in a towel to dry. Leave the brush to dry flat over the edge of a level surface, i.e. desk, overnight, or hang it up with the tip facing DOWN. The hair part of the brush should not
come into contact with any surface whilst drying.
