Perfect Foundation Every-time!

I was recently sent a collection of brushes by www.beauty-boxes.com – They sent me their full collection of brushes to try out. I must tell you I am in LOVE with them! Although have patience! I’m only talking about one in particular today. I will get around to the others in due time.

Today I want to talk about their Flat Topped Powder / Buffer Brush.

I didn’t think this day would ever come and I suggest you brace yourself…. Never did I think that any brush would be better for applying foundation than the duo fibre brushes like MAC 187, but I have to admit it, I can’t hold it in any longer….. I have found my new favourite brush for applying foundation!

This brush applies and blends foundation with ease. I’m not exaggerating when I say your foundation will be FLAWLESS!

The Brush itself is made from the softest Goat’s Hair I have come across and has a sturdy aluminium ferrule. With thick wooden handles, this brush feels like any premium brand brush should.

For best results, I suggest placing your foundation onto your face with with your fingers or another brush then using light circular motions to blend your foundation into your face effortlessly.  The bristles of the brush should ‘just’ be touching your skin, you should not be applying pressure onto the brush. You can of course use the brush to lift and apply the foundation, however, I think this brush performs at its best they drier the bristles.

This brush is not only for use with Liquid foundations though, it is fabulous at blending creams and powders too. In fact, it excels when applying powder. Your makeup will look completely flawless. I am still in shock at the results I get when using this brush.

The brush is priced at £25.45 and is available from www.beauty-boxes.com. I highly recommend you get yourself one of these, you’ll never look back.

If you do buy one (WHICH YOU SHOULD!),  I suggest giving it a light shampoo as it tends to shed some bristles the first couple of times you use it. Also if you are a Makeup Artist, I have trouble with fitting the handle into some of the slots on my Brush Belt, but saying that, I still don’t think you should be without one of these, I just like to give my full and honest opinion.

Let me know how you get on with yours.
