The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush

Item 2241952

Find in Store-

A revolutionary foundation brush that is not only supremely soft, versatile and durable for use, but also made of sustainably harvested bamboo.

This foundation brush flawlessly blends and buffs makeup for a perfectly airbrushed effect. Vegan friendly.
Dispense a quarter-size amount of foundation to the back of your hand. Pick up a small amount using the Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush and brush onto your skin, starting at the center of your face and blending out. Achieve a flawless, even complexion by soft circular buffing sweeps.

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. Rinse bristles thoroughly under running water and continue rinsing until water runs clear. Gently squeeze excess water out of bristles and place on a level surface to air-dry before next use. Clean brush as often as needed.

      I love this brush. So soft and works beautifully with the Tarte liquid foundation. Provides a beautiful, even application. My only complaint is that I wish it were a little smaller.

        This is great for the Amazonian clay foundation the only drawback is that the brush is so big it's hard to get under the eyes and can use up alot of product.

            I love this brush! I use it with the Tarte Amazonian Clay and I get a flawless finish. You can build up your coverage with this brush without using too much product. Plus, your face doesn't look cakey at all. Yes, it is a little expensive but definitely worth it.

            Comments about Tarte The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush:

            I was skeptical at first when I purchased the Amazonian Tarte Foundantion they advised me to buy the brush so I did. First impression was WOW the foundation consistency is thick so full coverage and this just evened it out, so smooth and very soft bristle brush. I absolutely love it! I would recommend the brush if your buying the foundation. Must try!!

            The brush was purchased at Ulta.

              This brush is really great for blending out liquid foundation. I use it the most for aerosol foundations like the Dior Air Flash. The density of the brush is what makes it blend out product properly. I would highly recommend this brush for anyone looking for a new foundation brush.

                This brush was recommended to me by a friend as I saw her apply her make-up. This works with most foundations and I can even apply my powder with the same brush right after. The brush doesn't clump up and is so easy to clean. The brush goes back to the original form even after cleaning. It applies evenly and doesn't absorb your foundation. Seriously the best brush ever!!!

                Delivery was fast and was in great condition when I received it.

                  Can I use this brush with the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea water foundation? I was wondering this since it's a watery fluid. Or should I just get the brush that comes with the foundation?

                    This brush features cruelty free, ultra-plush bristles ideal for applying liquid foundation formulas like our Amazonian clay full coverage foundation SPF 15. The airbuki brush features more dense & compact, cruelty free bristles that are great for buffing on weightless powder foundations. The airbuki brush was also designed to fit perfectly in the applicator of our Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation.
