The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush

Item #: 2241952

Ask a Question
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.

      Comments about Tarte The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush:

      Before this brush, I used the Beauty Blender to apply all of my foundations. I still love the BB for powders, highlights, blush, etc., but I've absolutely loved using this brush for foundation! I use the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea water foundation, and find that this brush applies it so evenly leaving my skin with an airbrushed look. I also used it with the Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation, and loved the application with that as well. Totally recommend!!!!

          I love tarte products for so many reasons. They are all cruelty free and treat your skin fantastically. This brush is no different, and spreads the foundation evenly. I use it with my Amazonian clay foundation clay, and it goes on so smooth. Love this brush! Just an overall great product!

                  I had the brush for a couple months and at first the bristles started falling out and sticking to my face and then couple months down the road it falls apart. Brushes shouldn't fall apart after a couple of months especially if you don't use it everyday. So disappointed.

                          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?

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.
