Anatomy of a Brush

ESUM Brushes are hand-crafted from premium, first-cut textures. Ethically sourced hair or synthetic fibers are gathered, shaped and scaled into classic brush shapes for a professional selection.

• Natural to synthetic premium hair
• Diverse shapes, size and texture

large dome diffuser brush head

The ferrule connects the brush head to the handle. It is a platinum-rolled brass which ensures the shape of the brush head as well as creates a balance of weight in the brush between the head and the handle. Consumer quality brushes typically use an aluminum ferrule to reduce cost and weight.

• Platinum-rolled brass metal
• Ensures brush shape

large dome diffuser brush ferrule

Eco-responsible birch wood has been treated with oil. This allows the handle to expand and contract when wet without affecting it’s integrity. Each handle has been designed with a knuckle for a balanced and comfortable grip.

• Cured birch wood
• Ergonomically designed

Brush Hair Types

natural brush hair

Natural hair

Natural hair is chosen based on its texture. The hair cuticle creates the texture and changes the hair’s ability to pickup and lay down makeup.
• A LARGER cuticle delivers a full application
• A SMALLER cuticle delivers a sheer to medium application

synthetic brush hair

Synthetic hair

Synthetic hair is a man-made fiber and has no cuticle. There are two textures of synthetic hair created for makeup:
• TAKLON (T) SMOOTH STRANDS
• VEXLON (V) EXTRA FINE STRANDS
