        This is an amazing brush. I use it for buffing, bending, applying powder and liquid foundation, highlighting, as well as applying blush and bronzer. This is truly an amazing brush that does everything seamlessly. Its soft and it retracts, so great for travel. I have combination skin and whenever I used other brushes, the dry areas of my face would look very uneven and would leave dry spots very visible. This brush smoothes everything out and my face looks even throughout my whole face. I looooove this brush! Btw I am 38 so my skin is not some 20 year old flawless skin that just about anything would work on. So I am very impressed with this brush. This is the brush that I'll basically take when I travel and nothing else :)

              This brush applies my powder foundation so evenly, and I love how soft it is. I also love the fact that I can put the top on the brush, stick it in my makeup bag, and not worry about excess powder getting everywhere.

                        Hi Laura,

                        This kabuki brush would be an amazing brush for powder foundation because of how lightly packed and fluffy the bristles are - they would give you that light, but flawless coverage.

                        For liquid foundation, I would tend to use a brush whose head is more dense and compact. One brush I love within EcoTools for liquid foundation application is the Buffing Brush, shown here: http://www.ulta.com/buffing-brush?productId=xlsImpprod4260025

                        Thanks!

                        Thanks!

                        A:

                        Hi Abbey,

                        I do love me a kabuki brush for a lot of different things, and it would be an amazing brush for a bronzer because of how lightly packed and fluffy the bristles are - they would give you that natural glow you're looking for.

                        However, I probably wouldn't recommend it for contouring - you need something with a bit more precision and something that has a bit more of an angular cut. My best recommendation is a brush from our sister brand, Real Techniques. We make a Sculpting Brush in that line that is absolutely amazing for contouring - you can find it here: http://www.ulta.com/sculpting-brush?productId=xlsImpprod11861065

                        That has the angles, the smaller cut bristles and the dense packing that is perfect for creating a fierce contour!

                        Thanks.
