At Hakuhodo the name "Fude" is used to denote a brush.
The hair tip is the most important part for a brush, maintaining it takes lots of skill. Other brush manufacturers lose the hair tip in the production process, cutting all their bristles to the same length. At Hakuhodo we use skilled craftsmen who are able to create a makeup tool keeping the most important element, the hair tip.
This is the reason why we continue to use the name "Fude".
Here at Hakuhodo, we take advantage of the hair tip and the entire surface of the bristles is arranged three-dimensionally.
This hair tip is vital for a fude.
Our fudes offer you perfect control which allows you to freely draw lines of different thickness and tone.
Glide the fude gently and freely on your skin, this helps you achieve a flawless finish.
If used properly, a fude will last longer.
