About 5 inches - it should fit in your makeup bag. I especially like the smaller size because it's easier to hold and apply my powder in circular motion over my face.

I guess it depends on the size of your makeup bag...? It isn't really long at all. The whole brush is less than 5 inches.

I don't have the brush with me at the moment - but I would say it's about 6" long, maybe a little more. It's not a long brush. It's very thick though - the handle is probably 1" - 1.5" diameter.

I am a fine artist and treat my makeup brushes as kindly as my art brushes. 1st NEVER use warm or hot water or harsh detergents as this loosens the bristles from the ferrule (the metal part around the base of the bristles). Using cool water and a small amount of mild shampoo, gently brush the bristles back and forth on the palm of your hand. Thoroughly rinse away from the ferrule. Lightly reshampoo the bristle. If makeup is still visible in the suds repeat the process until the water runs clear. Due to the heavy amount of bristles, this may take some time. Be patient and gentle. Reshape the bristles while gently squeezing out the excess water. Lay the brush flat on a towel to dry near a heating/airco vent but not directly in the air flow to dry.

I always use a little warm water and gentle (all-natural) dish soap, or brush cleaning soap if you have it. Soak the bristles, pour a dab of soap in your palm, and work the soap into the bristles, rubbing in your palm and with your fingers. Rinse and repeat until the water runs clear (no more makeup in the bristles)!

Natural hair brushes seem to work really well if you wash them with shampoo and condition them (yes, with your hair products) before initially using them. It helps keep the bristles from falling out as quickly as well as helps to keep them soft. After that, I usually shampoo the brushes that I've used every week and then lay them out to air dry overnight. In between washings I'll just use brush cleaner between colors. Also, sometimes bigger brushes like this one will need a little longer, so plan accordingly :)

To clean it, I soak the bristles (not the metal part) and I put a little bit of sulphate-free shampoo in my hand, and swirl it; continue until rinsing it comes clear!

Use a small amount (pea size) of mild shampoo like Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo. Gently rub around and rinse. I let mine air dry overnight and it's good to go next day.

I wash it in hot water. Fill a narrow glass with about an inch of hot boiling water and a small squirt of antibacterial soap. Let it soak a few minutes. Repeat until the water runs clear. Then do a thorough rinse in the same glass and inch of fresh water until soap residue is gone.

I take the brush and use a flicking motion into the sink to get as much moisture out of the center of the brush. After that, I let it dry on its side on a towel, brushing the bristles once in a while to air the bristles densest in the center. At one point it should be fine to run the brush back and forth on a towel to remove more moisture. It should dry thoroughly in less than 24 hrs.

I don't recommend squeezing or pulling the hairs thru a towel. Just flicking the brush and slowly rubbing onto a towel halfway thru drying will do. Oh one thing, the hairs do smell awful when wet but it will dry odorless, I guess it's the nature of the goat hair.

Great question! You can use a mild shampoo or a "brush cleanser". Do not let the brush soak for a long time in water as water will get into ferrule and cause rust, and hairs to rot and fall out. Work some shampoo/cleanser into bristles, rise and repeat until all make-up product is gone. Hand dry with a clean cloth towel, reshape and dry brush on it's side (do not use a hair dryer on your brushes). Clean brushes keep your colors true, saves your skin from break-outs and the brushes will last longer too. Some suggest to wash your brushes once a week. There are lots of videos on the Internet to show you how.

To clean all of my makeup brushes, I use a facial cleanser. Makes sense right? You use it to wash the makeup off of your face, so why not on your brushes?! :) Washing your brushes is one of the most efficient ways to increase the life of your brushes.

If i am spot cleaing this brush, i will spray some brush cleaner onto a terry cloth towel or a sturdier papertowel that wont shed and swirl the brush lightly in circular motions, back in forth, up and down. reshape the bristles. set it down on its side with the bristles hanging off the edge of the table, counter, etc. If sink cleaning, i will hold the bristles under the faucet making sure the farrel doesnt get wet, sqeeze a tiny drop of antibacterial dish soap or brush cleaner into the balm of your hand and swirl the brush around your palm. It will lather up and you will see the makeup mixing with the soap. Continue to swirl under the faucet (careful with the farrel) gently ring the water out, reshape, then let dry like when you spot clean

The Platinum version's bristles felt slightly silkier to me than the brown bristles. Also, the white hairs on this version really help me see how much pigment I'm picking up.

I tried both brushes in the store and it was like night and day. The regular brush (#4) I think, when I used it, looked just like any other, cheap bronzing brush. When I used this one it looked perfect! I knew I had to buy this one despite the increase in price.

The difference between this pro brush and our classic brush is that this brush has higher grade goat hair, which will provide the face with a smoother and more even application. Generally our Pro brushes also have longer handles than brushes in our classic collection, which makes them ideal for professional artists.

I use it in a sweeping motion over the cheeks and towards the ears, a little over the nose, and then apply whatever's left on the brush in a circular E shape (forehead, cheeks and chin) on each side. It's probably easier to explain by showing.

I use it as I would use a blush diagonally across my cheeks to almost the hair line. I then brush some on my temples, down my nose and along my jaw line.
