Ask a Question
The Ulta Buffing Brush can be used for a variety of makeup applications but is ideal for mineral and face powders. Use Ulta Brush & Sponge Cleaner to regularly clean your brushes.
Gently buff your powder onto your face working from the center of your face outward and upward using small circular motions. The smaller the circular motions, the more of an air-brushed look you will achieve.

This brush feels great...but I can't get the flawless results I'm wanting with it. Not sure if its the products I am using or the brush.

        This is an excellent brush for the price. I use it with the BareMinerals matte loose powder. Buffs it on way better than the cheap brush they sent in the kit and is way softer. Will definitely buy it again.

                Blushes and bronzers go on so smooth and it does not take a lot on the brush to get the color I'm looking for. A little goes a long way basically. The brush is pretty dense, but very soft.

                          I am purchasing the Ulta Contour Palette & Ulta brushes to go along with it. When browsing thru the brushes I noticed that the Ulta Highlight Brush was completely sold out & unavailable. Can I use the Buffing brush to apply my contour highlighting powder & if not, which other brush would you recommend me using besides the Highlighting brush thats currently unavailable? Thank you I ❤ Ulta

                            This brush can produce either medium coverage or full coverage. The smaller the circular motions you buff, the more coverage and more airbrushed finish you will receive.

                            Rather than this brush, which is ideal for powder formulas, instead we recommend using the ULTA Angled Foundation Brush with liquid and cream products such as BB cream. This is a firmer brush, with more compact brush hairs that will apply liquid and cream products much more evenly and precisely:
