      Great little brush and even better price. Cleans up very easy and applies foundation evenly. Very happy. This is the second brush I've bought and plan to make this the only one I buy in the future for applying my foundation.

          Decided to try this inexpensive foundation brush to use with the Laura Geller Double Take Baked Versatile Powder Foundation. Couldn't be happier with the results. Great quality at a great price. I plan to replace all my brushes with Real Techniques.

                            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!

                            This is one of our most versatile and best selling brushes. It's perfect for liquid or cream foundation, it can also be used to apply blush to the apples of the cheeks. Many of our fans use it for pressed and loose powder as well.

                            The most wonderful thing about makeup brushes is that there's no wrong way to use them if you're creating a look for yourself that you love!

                            One other brush that I *love* when I'm doing my contouring 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 Celeste,

                            The great thing about this brush is that it is so multi-functional and can be used for all types of foundation: powder, pressed powder, liquid, mousse, etc.

                            Hope that helps!

                            Hi Nisha,

                            All of our Real Techniques bristles are synthetic, so none have animal hair.

                            Thanks!

                            Hi Leah,

                            This is one of our most popular brushes, and one of the main reasons why is because it is so multi-functional. it's great for all different forms and types of foundation: powder, pressed liquid, creams, mousses, serums, etc.

                            I think you will find that you will be happy with how it works with any kind of foundation!

                            thanks.
