Brushes For Foundation

Before I go into all the detail I just want to add that these brushes I’ll be talking about are wonderful for applying liquid foundation. Powder foundation will be in another post along with some tips and tricks! 馃檪

Over the past few weeks I’ve received a lot of emails from you asking for advice on different make-up products, brushes and one that keeps popping up is how to apply foundation so I thought a good way to start would be on the brushes I use for liquid foundation.

Brushes For Foundation

For some reason we get taught to apply our foundation with a normal foundation brush, in the pictures above it’s the one that looks like a paint brush.

I haven’t and never will understand why – it doesn’t blend foundation into the skin, it just leaves you looking like you’ve painted your face and that’s definitely not a look to go for.

I only use the foundation brush for dotting foundation onto my skin – that’s it!

The brush I use to blend my foundation is the flat-top brush as seen in the pictures above – sent to me by Nanshy.

I stipple and buff the foundation onto my skin (after applying primer) for a lovely, smooth look.

By stippling and buffing your foundation onto your skin it just blends so much better, by working your make-up into your skin like this you’ll also find it lasts a lot longer during the day.

Buffing is the main thing to do, by buffing your foundation onto your skin it gives you a lovely, smooth look and instantly makes your skin look healthier which in turn will make all your make-up look great.

A great base gives you a great face! 馃檪
