I now own the Hourglass Foundation Brush #2 (purchased at VIB) because of a lady named Christine. I would have purchased the Tom Ford one, but it is not available in Canada yet.

I use tinted moisturizer most of the time, which I prefer to apply with my fingers. On the rare occasion that I wear foundation, I like to use a somewhat dense round brush with synthetic bristles to apply it. I’m interested in trying a stippling brush, though, since I don’t like a lot of coverage on me most of the time.

I like using these to apply my liquid foundation: Chanel Blending Foundation Brush #7, MAC 187, Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, Tom Ford Cream Foundation Brush. 🙂

Lately I’ve been using my fingers! Other than that I use ant of the Sigma Sigmax Kabuki brushes or the Real Techniques buffing, stippling, or expert face. I just use whatever brush is nearest. I wish I could use a beautyblender but with oily skin I find it always makes me look oily in 2-3 hours.

Ecotools big fluffy brush, so my foundation doesn’t look mask like when I am wearing long wearing foundation. I don’t like the painter type brushes for foundation. I like to use my fingers when I have a foundation that is dewy. To blend it all together, I like using a sponge to finish up blending when/where needed!

I use a ecotools flat foundation brush to apply liquid foundation onto face, then use real techniques expert/buffing brush to blend. If somehow the foundation turn out looking too made up, I use damp beautyblender to pad it down a bit.

Depending on what foundation i use i mostly reach for my Chanel Foundation brush, my Shiseido Perfect Foundation brush or my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. Sometimes I just use my fingers to blend, if I want a very natural look.

I apply liquid or powder foundation with my sigma F80 most of the time. If it’s dirty I use Real Techniques buffing brush or sigma F84. Bb Creams only with my fingers.

I mostly use the Real Techniques expert face brush or the RT buffing brush.
These brushes are just awesome!

And for mineral foundation just a random Kabuki that I have had for ages.
