So many people still don’t use a brush to put their foundation on. It’s not wrong, really. But what’s the reason for not doing? Many think it’s quicker to use fingers, don’t have time to be messing around with a brush, or generally don’t have a clue which foundation brush to select from the 5628471 different ones in Boots.
Well, let me me tell you this, if you apply your foundation right, with a good brush, you will a) find your face stays on SO much longer, b) get a much smoother & blended finish, c) won’t mix the oils from your fingertips with your foundation. Yum.
First up, let me show you my worst foundation brush….
It applies product too heavy and leaves like paint stripes on the skin. No from me.
I have 2 that I absolutely love. My favourite being the Buffing Brush from the Real Techniques Core Collection. This brush is amazing, you buff your foundation in to your skin, and get the most flawless finish. The second you have the brush in your hand you automatically know what to do with it. It is SO fast and so easy! LOVE.
Second fave is the Duo Fibre brush from Real Techniques also. This is a copy of the MAC 159, but at 1/3 of the price, it’s fab! You can buff, stroke, blend your foundation on so it resembles real skin – something about the duo fibres.
If you don’t have a brush, try one! The Buffing Brush will change your foundation life! I bought my mum one because she has always used her hands & she absolutely loves it, AND her foundy looks so much smoother.
It’s a no brainerrrrr xxx
