If the foundation is unsteady, the structure will collapse. This holds as true to makeup as it does to construction. Without a good foundation, your makeup will simply be straggling on your face. Foundation is one of the key elements of a well made-up face. So it stands to reason that an essential tool in your makeup kit is your foundation makeup brush.
If you have spent your whole life applying foundation with a sponge or your fingers, I would highly recommend that you give the foundation brush a try. Once you do, I can assure you that you will never look back. The finish is exquisite with a brush while only mediocre with any other tool. A brush gives you a polished look that makes you look more presentable, elegant and beautiful.
I use a liquid foundation once in awhile and I used to think that you could not use a brush for that. But I stumbled up on a video on the Internet which showed just how to apply liquid foundation with a brush. And it looked amazing! I have not used my fingers since.
What is A Foundation Brush?
For all you newbies out there, a foundation brush will be flat and tapered.
A foundation brush must be very soft. It should feel like velvet against your skin. Synthetic bristles are better as they do not absorb the foundation like natural bristles. So there is less waste and less caking.
The Importance of Your Foundation Makeup Brush
As I have already mentioned, foundation application is a crucial aspect of your makeup routine. Indeed, all your makeup quite literally sits on your foundation. So you have to ensure that it is smoothly and evenly applied.
Foundation usually comes in cream or liquid form. It is messy to apply. Using a sponge just soaks up all your foundation, leaving next to nothing for your face. And using your fingers isn’t much better. A brush makes your life a whole lot easier.
You simply put some foundation on the back of your hand and dab our foundation brush in it. Smoothly sweep the foundation on your face. You will be surprised by how easy it is and how great the results are.
I used to hate applying foundation. But since I started using a brush, I’ve actually come to enjoy it because it is so much easier now. And because I enjoy it, I’m becoming a bit of an expert at it. It’s basic logic – happiness equals productivity.
The tapered edge of the brush allows you to apply foundation to your needs. So whether you want to cover up a few spots her and there or you prefer full coverage, the brush will expertly aid you in your task.
When it comes to makeup tools, a foundation makeup brush is much easier to maintain than a sponge. A sponge is a breeding ground for bacteria. So when you apply foundation with a sponge to your clean face, you are probably re-dirtying it. A brush is much more hygienic and easier to keep clean too.
