Foundation Buffer 111
Are you looking for a makeup brush that delivers flawless and airbrushed results when applying your foundation? Look no further than the Foundation Buffer 111 brush, a must-have addition to your beauty regime. The brush is designed with densely packed, high-quality, professional-grade nylon bristles that effortlessly blend foundation for a smooth and even finish. You can easily achieve a seamless and natural look with the Foundation Buffer 111 brush’s superior blending capabilities, always ensuring that there are no visible streaks or lines on your skin. Let's walk you through the process of using this cruelty-free foundation brush to create a smooth and airbrushed complexion:
- Prepare your skin: Before you begin, ensure that your skin is cleansed, moisturized, and primed with a suitable primer. This creates a smooth canvas for your foundation.
- Dispense your foundation: Squeeze a pump or a small amount of your preferred liquid or cream foundation onto the back of your hand. This allows you to control the amount and prevents any excess product.
- Dab and load: Gently dip our Foundation Buffer 111 into the foundation on your hand. Use a dabbing motion rather than dragging the brush to avoid damaging the bristles and ensure an even distribution of product.
- Apply in speckled motions: Starting from the center of your face, such as the nose or cheeks, apply the foundation using speckled or dotted motions. This means lightly pressing the brush against your skin in an up-and-down motion. The densely packed bristles of our Foundation Buffer 111 help place the product evenly.
- Blend and buff: With the foundation applied in the center of your face, gently blend it outwards towards your hairline and jawline. We recommend using circular motions to achieve that natural finish. Our Foundation Buffer 111 excels in blending and buffing and acts as a magic wand.
- Build as needed: For more coverage, repeat steps 3 to 5 to build up the foundation. Our Foundation Buffer 111 brush allows you to layer without cakiness, giving you the flexibility to achieve your desired level of coverage.
- Set your makeup: Once your foundation is flawlessly applied, set it with a setting powder to help it stay in place all day.
