        I use this brush to apply foundation and I love it. It's so easy to clean, and the best foundation applicator next to beauty blenders.

            I needed to replace my foundation brush and picked this because of the price. It is not a bad brush but definitely not as good as the high dollar ones. I do recommend it for general use though especially if you are on a tight budget

                          Hi Lauren,

                          I think this would be the perfect brush to apply a face mask. It's flat, which is what you want in order to apply evenly and around contours. It's bristle material is a bit smoother and not as fluffy, plus the bristles are densely packed, so you're able to control where the product goes.

                          Hope that helps! Have fun!

                          A:

                          Hi Cherry Pie,

                          What a great brush you've picked for a first one! This is one of my favorite brushes to use with foundation, mainly because of the size & shape and how well it works. Apply your liquid or cream foundation with broad, even strokes, and focus additional product on areas you might want to cover (blemishes, brown circles, redness). Use the brush to blend any lines. Because of the cut and type of bristle, this brush gives you a nice amount of overall foundation.

                          Cleaning it is a breeze - we recommend cleaning your brushes every week or two, depending on how often and how much you use it. We make two great types of cleaning products, specifically for brushes. The first is an eco-friendly brush shampoo: http://www.ulta.com/makeup-brush-cleansing-shampoo?productId=xlsImpprod13501085. This is great for that deep clean. Work up a lather using your brush and rinse until water runs clear. To dry, I usually fold up a bath towel and arrange the brushes with the brush tip pointing down and the handle raised so slightly (this directs the water out of the ferrule (which is where the glue is that holds the bristles together)).

                          We also have a great product for those in between cleanings - makeup brush cleansing cloths: http://www.ulta.com/makeup-brush-cleansing-cloths?productId=xlsImpprod13731033&sku=2297112&_requestid=2364993. These are great for a quick swipe and clean between applications.

                          Thanks - hope that helps!
