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.

          I use the product to buff and smooth out my foundation, as well as buffing out my contour and blush. I enjoy using this brush because it can be used for many applications. The brush itself is soft and comfortable on the skin, and so far I don't have any complaints on the product.

              I bought this makeup brush for more precision in blending foundation. I have used it to blend powder make up (face, blush and contour).

              I bought this brush to try with my Bare Minerals foundation and it doesn't seem to apply as easily as the BM brushes do. It's been a let down for the use I bought it for.

                        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:
