The Sephora Glossy gets swept up in the ingenious design of this all-in-one face brush.
According to BECCA Style Director Kerry Cole, an artist is only as good as her tools—make that tool. “I was an art major in college and always had one big brush that I gravitated towards because I was able to use it in so many different ways,” she says. “BECCA The One Perfecting Brush is reminiscent of this ‘perfect’ art brush.” Here, she explains why this multitasking complexion brush is all you need to create the perfect base.

“As a makeup artist, I am used to many brushes, but they can be intimidating, not to mention time-consuming, for the average person,” says Cole. “I wondered, ‘Would it be possible to have just one brush that did it all?’ We wanted something unique, but extremely functional—something that truly takes the guesswork out of brushwork.”
“We wanted a name worthy of the brush and one that communicates all the different techniques you can do with this amazing tool. Calling this ‘The One’ is a bold statement, and one we were willing to make, because we truly believe it is the one brush you need for a perfected complexion.”
“It can function as 10 different brushes: foundation, concealer, stippling, powder, blush, contour, bronzer, kabuki, fan, as well as a makeup sponge. Traveling with it is ideal—leave your bouquet of brushes at home, because all you need is The One. The brush can also be used to apply primer, self-tanner, and sunscreen. We’ve even had clients tell us it applies body bronzers perfectly.”
“We chose a high-quality goat hair for its non-porous properties and flexibility—it’s very strong, but extremely soft. The hair allows product to sit on top of bristles rather than absorb it; it picks up just the right amount for a seamless airbrushed application. You never waste or lose product! Each hair is glued into the base of the brush for bendable but firm bristles that are free of dye, so they will not lose shape or softness over time. It’s also naturally antimicrobial.”
“The hairs are densely packed in a 3.5-inch horizontal design—(18 grams in bristle weight compared to 12 grams in average brushes!)—for effortless and even coverage on smaller or larger surface areas. The flat edges fit the linear contours of your face and the rounded corners are for more targeted, precise application. The curved corners are also ideal for blending product.”
“The handle was designed to fit comfortably in your hand and give you complete control. The weight of the brush is in the bristles, not in the handle; this ensures quick and moveable strokes and is easy to grip.”
“To prolong the life of your brush, gently wash bristles in lukewarm water with a brush cleanser every two weeks. Just remember to never submerge the brush in water, to avoid tugging or squeezing bristles, and to lay it flat to dry. Shedding is completely normal with a natural hair brush—you’ve got thousands more so don’t worry if you lose a few!”
