Three Good Reasons You Should Get One
The foundation brush provides an easier, more precise way to effectively blend liquid or wet application foundations ... its faster too. The illusive 'flawless finish' can be in reach for the amateur with a little practice.
Three Reasons You Should Consider A Foundation Brush:
The paint brush styling of the brush is a familiar action for most people and with a little blending practice, easy to master. TIP: Use a Q-tip to apply the foundation, then blend out with a brush changing the stroke angles for more effective blending. Fingers and/ or sponge can help the final smoothing and blending into the skin.
Qualities to look for?
Beginner or veteran, you will need an application strategy. Dot your foundation with a Q-tip and blend, one zone at a time, till you get a handle on how much coverage you want, the amount of foundation you will need to create that coverage, how much to dispense per zone and the blending required for it. Your ultimate goal is, of coarse, an undetectable finish.
Medium length handle, soft but firm, flat
bristle head, and in this case, the hair can be synthetic or a mix of
synthetic and natural bristles (natural bristles are more porous and
can absorb too much product which is not ideal for liquid
TRY Bobbi Brown's Foundation Brush as a top pick.
Another great, but in this case a little more budget friendly example... Sephora Collection Double Ended Perfect . What's so great about this Sephora brush?
