This beautifully crafted Kumadori Contour & Highlighting Brush harmonizes the beauty of Kabuki theatre with the superb craftsmanship of professional makeup tools. The natural fibers lightly deposit pigmented powders while the hand-cut shape offers ideal control and precision for specific contour and highlighting areas. Ku·ma·dor·i (隈取) is the Japanese stagecraft tradition in ancient Kabuki theatre. A makeup technique used to express the qualities of overflowing power and emphasize the individual personalities of each character with its own colored pattern. The purpose of the Kumadori is to emphasize the facial expressions rather than to hide them.
