      Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

      I bought this brush to apply my MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. I tried the Real Techniques sculpting brush, but it did not apply the Studio Fix Fluid foundation that great. The expert face brush helps to apply my foundation so smooth and almost looks air brushed! Def recommend it to a friend, especially with how thick the Studio Fix Fluid foundation is

                          When using with liquid foundation will this give you a more light to medium coverage? Or a medium to full coverage? Like are the bristles really stiff or fluffy at the top?

                            Hi Sopho,

                            This is one of our most awesome and amazing brushes that we have in this line - it's actually our #1 selling Real Techniques brush!

                            The bristles themselves are dense and short, which gives you very targeted coverage (more medium to full).

                            If you're looking for light to medium coverage, the other brush I might recommend comes in our Flawless Base Set (it's the larger Buffing Brush). I actually use that brush every single day - I like it because its bristles are a bit longer and not as dense, which gives me the really natural look I like. You can find that kit here:

                          Just wondering how dense this brush is. Sometimes brushes just push product around your face rather than blending it. I want to use this brush as a post-setting powder blender. Would it be good for that or do you have a better brush for that purpose? Thanks!

This brush is perfect with all different kinds of foundation types: sticks, creams, liquids, mousses, etc. And the great thing about Real Techniques brushes is that you don't have to pay a lot of money to get a truly awesome brush that will serve you well!

                            One other brush that I *love* when I'm doing contouring or blush is our Real Techniques Sculpting Brush (http://www.ulta.com/sculpting-brush?productId=xlsImpprod11861065). The bristles on this brush are very similar to the Expert Face brush, but I love how they are cut at an angle, so you can really work to highlight and enhance your cheekbones.

                            Either way, I think you will be happy with the brush's performance!

                            Thanks!

                            Hi Champagnemelii,

                            Awesome question! Cleaning your brushes is so important to keep them in good quality, and to keep getting the performance you want out of them.

                            I'm slightly obsessive when it comes to cleaning my brushes. For the ones I use daily, I clean them every week. For the ones I use not as often (like my eye brushes, or if I don't do contouring regularly), I clean them every 3-4 weeks, depending on use.

                            Basically, it depends on how often you use your brushes and how much product you use on them. I'm pretty heavy on foundation, concealer, powder and blush - so those 4-5 brushes, I clean a lot.

                            If you have a sponge, like our Miracle Complexion Sponge, you want to clean that every week, even if you're not using it a lot. You also want to replace it every 60-90 days.

                            We have two great cleansers: the first is from Real Techniques and it's a more heavy-duty cleanser for those brushes you use a lot. You can find it here: http://www.ulta.com/deep-cleansing-gel?productId=xlsImpprod13121017

                            We also have a cleanser from our sister brand, EcoTools, that's a bit gentler and has more eco-friendly ingredients (I use this one all the time): http://www.ulta.com/makeup-brush-cleansing-shampoo?productId=xlsImpprod13501085&sku=2297645&_requestid=543623

                            EcoTools also makes these cool makeup wipes for in-between your deep cleans. You can find that here: http://www.ulta.com/makeup-brush-cleansing-cloths?productId=xlsImpprod13731033

                            Hope all that helps!

                            Hi Make-Up Newbie,

                            Great question! This brush is one of our best sellers mainly because it is perfect for just about every kind of foundation. So, yes - this would work well with an airbrush foundation!

                            Thanks!

                            Hi Meagan,

                            This is one of our most popular brushes and works very well with just about every foundation. It blends absolutely beautifully, which is the most important thing a foundation brush can do. I think you'll be very happy with how this works.

                            Thanks!
