For many of us, applying foundation involves a quick push of a pump and application with our fingers. While this may be fine when we’re in a rush, if you want a flawless look that will last longer and make your foundation go further – you’re going to need a brush.
These three tools will keep your look streak-free and will help you make the most of your foundation.
Real Technique has a wide range of brushes in its collection, letting you choose what kind of finish you want. For a flawless look Tanya Burr (make-up artist) advises you use a buffing brush and apply your foundation in circular motions.
The Kabuki brush is especially good for those of you using mineral foundation. The softness of the brush makes powder distribution and buffing simple. The brush also has a retractable top, helping it to stay in good condition for longer.
Perfect for creating a night-time look, this brush works well with cream foundations – letting it glide onto skin without any of the telltale signs of streaking. Giving you full control of exactly how much product you use, so you will never waste foundation again.
