So today, we’re talking foundation brushes–why it’s worth investing in a good one, what to look for and how to take care of them.
First and most importantly, you get a great blend with these brushes. These guys blend a liquid foundation right into the skin for a natural, dewy look.
I also love that they come in a set of three–one for foundation, one for creme blush, and the smallest for concealer, which means there’s no need to clean off the brush between foundation and creme blush or concealer. You’ve got one for each!
The handles are ergonomic and super soft to hold.
They’re 100% vegan, dermatologist-tested and the bristles are incredibly soft, too.
When using a brush for liquid foundation, I always apply a small amount of foundation to the back of my hand–about half the size of a dime–and then lightly dip the foundation brush into it, tap onto my skin, and buff in circles.
Applying foundation little by little in this way allows you to build up coverage to whatever level you prefer–from one layer for a light and natural look, to several layers for heavier coverage.
Although many makeup experts say it’s fine to clean brushes once weekly with some good soap (and I do that), I also like to do a light, brush-off clean each time I use them, when possible.
Take an unscented baby wipe and drag the bristles back and forth across it until it begins to wipe clean; or use this super affordable daily makeup brush cleaner from e.l.f. Just spray this on a paper towel or old rag, then wipe the brush back and forth across the wet spot until it’s clean.
If you’re looking for a budget option incredible foundation brush, I would absolutely give these a go. They’re well made, do the job right and also look great on your vanity.
