How do I choose a foundation brush? Your brush choice depends on the type of foundation formula you’re using. As a general rule of thumb, it’s advisable to stick to natural bristles for powder, and synthetic bristles for liquid products. This is because synthetic bristles tend to soak up less product, hence there’ll be less product wastage.
Can you use any makeup brush for foundation? Thick bristles can create a streaky finish to your foundation, while thin bristles will help you get an even coat. For this, you can use any makeup brush you have. It doesn’t even have to be a foundation brush as long as its bristles are small.
Which brush is a foundation brush? Foundation brushes tend to be flat or rounded and densely packed so that they can buff and blend product into your skin smoothly.
What shape is a foundation brush? DOME OR ROUND: This is the perfect do-it-all brush, especially if you switch between liquid, cream, and powder foundations, says makeup artist Erica Whelan. The top of the brush head curves to form a rounded or domed shape, and tends to have short or medium length bristles.
