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.

    Bought this brush to use with my foundation and I like it better than the traditional "paintbrush" brush. This one I apply and use in circular motions.

        Incredibly soft, very well made brush. It seems to be holding up. Easily compares to the higher priced luxe brands.

            Comments about ULTA Buffing Brush:

            I bought this because I was using my IT for Ulta foundation brush every day. With daily use and regular washing, I didn't want to wear it out too quickly. I was hoping this brush would be a stand-in a couple days a week, but that's not what happened. I actually PREFER this brush over the more expensive IT brush! I use it to stipple on my BB cream and then blend it out. It looks so natural! The bristles are soft and there's NO shedding! I washed it a few times already and it rinses clean and dries pretty fast. I am looking forward to trying more Ulta brand brushes.

                  • Q:

                    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

                      A:

                      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.

                      A:

                      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:
