              This is my second, backup brush in case the first should ever wear out (its not showing any signs)! I use it nearly everyday with liquid foundations and I love the way it buffs the product thoroughly into my skin. No streaks!

                    Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

                    I picked up this brush for my foundation but it left it looking very streaky and it was just moving the product around my face without blending it. I picked
                    up the contour brush and I like it better because the bristles are packed tightly together so it blends out my foundation perfectly.

                        A:

                        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 there,

                        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!

                        A:

                        Hi Butterfly,

                        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! And one of the main reasons why is because it is so multi-functional. Not only can you use it for foundation, blush, etc, but it is one of the best blending brushes we have. So, yes, this would be great for blending out contour/highlight.

                        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 all4Him,

                        Great question. This is one of our best selling brushes and is perfect for just about all types of liquid, cream, mousse and cushion foundations. The cut and density of the bristles blends most foundations in perfectly. I think you will find this brush to be good to use!

                        Thanks!
