Buff your way to airbrushed complexion perfection with the Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush! The perfect complement to the Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation, this soft, versatile, cruelty-free brush allows you to flawlessly apply powder foundation like a pro. Just gently press the perfectly-sized brush into the custom mesh sifter on the Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation for clean and easy application every time. Vegan friendly.
To apply Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation, gently push the Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush into the mesh sifter - no shaking necessary! Tap away the excess and then buff the moisture-rich powder onto skin in circular motions until desired coverage is achieved.

To clean brush: Run the bristles of the makeup brush under warm running water, avoiding the handle. Apply a small amount of shampoo to bristles and work into a light lather.

        Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

        I believe this is a foundation brush. I have not tried it for foundation as of yet however I can tell that it would work beautifully. What I HAVE tried this for is bronzer and contour/blending and this brush just blends like a dream! It's compact so it's perfect for travel and the design of the brush makes it VERY easy to clean. I would give it ten stars! If you're searching for a blending bronzing brush or contour this is all you need!

          Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

          To be honest I was hesitant to buy this brush because its quite expensive but because of the amazing return policy from Ulta I bought it along with the Tarte foundation. I've only used it with powder foundation so my experience is with that only. The bristles are so soft to the touch and when using it on my face. I haven't seen any fallout yet. I have washed it using warm water and liquid brush shampoo cleaner. It takes a little over night to complete dry. I've had it for about six months and its like brand new. I love the elegant look and that it stands on its own. Worth every penny.

                This brush works very well for buffing your foundation to a smooth finish. The bristles are, soft but dense and the brush is designed in a way that gives you complete control over its movement and pressure.

                          This brush was designed specifically for use with Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation, but it works well with any and all pressed or loose powder formulas. For liquid formulas, we would instead recommend The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush (Item #: 2241952), which is designed to best apply liquid foundation:

                          Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush features dense bristles to provide fuller coverage, so we typically don't recommend it for bronzer or blush application. A better suited brush for bronzer application may be the The Slenderizer Bamboo Contouring Brush:

                          This brush features densely packed, firm bristles that make it ideal for fuller coverage such as with foundation. For setting powder application or sheer application of products, instead use a fluffy brush with less dense bristles such as IT Brushes for ULTA Live Beauty Fully Flawless Powder Brush #202:

                          A:

                          Once weekly, use a gentle hair shampoo (such as baby shampoo) or brush shampoo, and using cool water, gently work a lather into the bristles. Rinse with cool water until water runs clear. Lay flat to dry. You can also use a brush cleaner spray to spritz your brush in between uses to keep it clean until its next shampoo (recommended for acne-prone skin).
