Blending Contour: Apply dark shade along the jawline and hollows of the cheeks. Apply light shade to the high points of the face, like the tops of cheeks and bridge of nose. Then turn on the Clarisonic. Starting at cheek, move device gently in circular motions. Blend forehead and then nose and chin area. It is not necessary to rub or apply pressure.

To Quick Clean: Use a daily brush cleaner to spray and instantly wipe off on a tissue in between uses.

To Deep Clean: Remove the brush from handle, wet and lather with a brush shampoo, foaming facial cleanser or mild hand soap. Rinse and repeat as needed. Reattach to the handle, place the brush head onto a towel and power on device to remove excess water. Reshape the bristles and air dry.

      Comments about Clarisonic Sonic Foundation Brush Head:

      Where has this been my entire life?! I wake up super early for work and because of this I'm able to get a flawless coverage in seconds. Something that used to be really difficult when you're barely awake. Plus...I don't waste any makeup since it takes such a small amount. I can't say enough good things about this. It's now a part of my daily routine and I don't know how I've come this far without it. it does take a few tries especially to get used to using so little product but once you've got it...its definitely a life changer.

      I love my clarisonic but these was a total waste. This brush did not work at all. sheds like a dollar brush. Left my foundation unblended and it looked caked. I would rather buy a beauty blender. You tube has hyped it a lot i don't know why ?

        Comments about Clarisonic Sonic Foundation Brush Head:

        I am a perennial (50-something), so smooth, even-toned skin is very important. A sales associate showed me the Mia Fit Clarisonic and told me about the brush option to apply makeup. Where has this been all my life? I never used Clarisonic before, but now I'm hooked on it for cleansing and applying foundation. With the brush, I can mix foundation tones and create one that is closest to the color of my skin. It's much smoother b than applying with fingers and a sponge.

            Comments about Clarisonic Sonic Foundation Brush Head:

            Youtube made me buy it. Watched Amanda Ensing and Tati review this product and they raved about it. I bought it thinking it could save me some time trying to achieve that flawless application that we all knows takes a little bit extra time to achieve, but this product isn't what I had expected. Yes, it can shave a few seconds off your routine, but I found I could get as good of results but better w a damp beauty blender and brushes.

            Why I returned it:
            1. Brush vibrates, doesn't spin. I bought it thinking it vibrates and spins. Nope, only the outer portion of the brush vibrates.

            2. Wrist got tired pushing my Mia 2 around my face trying to blend the makeup while the brush vibrated the makeup into my skin. You must be very precise w pressure. Too much smooshes the makeup into one spot. Too little and the makeup doesn't get blended properly. Difficult to maneuver Mia 2 into tight spaces.

            Overall, I can achieve a more flawless look w my damp beauty blender and a good foundation brush. I can also get into those tight spaces around the face better. For me, it wasn't worth the hype.

              Okay I really wanted to love this product because so many people did but when I used it it shed non stop. I had about 10 hairs on one cheek from application. I couldn't even finish the rest of my face because it wouldn't stop shedding. I also found that it didn't spread out my foundation very well. My face felt cakey and it did not look good at all. I much prefer my beauty blender.

              Comments about Clarisonic Sonic Foundation Brush Head:

              I find myself not using my clarisonic as much as I probably should but was happy to have this as an answer to an expensive product. I like that the brush head is compatible with any clarisonic brush and that it does not soak up a lot of product. I use this with my foundation and notice that I need a smaller amount to get an even coverage and that it works even better on cream contour sticks. I have been reaching for this ever morning over my beauty blender. I will say that I do try to over moisturize my skin prior to makeup application so I probably would not recommend this to someone with sensitive skin or overly dry skin. Also, while I have not tried it does say not to use with any type of powder and I would say it would probably turn into a disaster if you tried. Overall, the product is soft, good quality and I will continue to use throughout the summer

                I'm incredibly impressed with this! I have used a beauty blender for years and didn't think it got any better than that! This new clarisonic foundation brush is brilliant. The end result is an airbrushed perfect finish! It blends perfectly and buffs it right in within 60 seconds! Clarisonic knocked it out of the park with this invention. I hope they create more makeup brushes. In fact it is so good I bought a Mia just for my face cleansing routine in the shower and use my 2nd Mia just for foundation. Buy this you will love it!

                  I have really dry skin and worried this would cause micro exfoliation and be streaky, so I was amazed when I got such a smooth and even application. It makes a tiny bit of foundation go a long way. I love it!

                  • Q:

                    Soo... since I have to switch out the heads every time I want to clean my face versus use the foundation brush, that means the collective run time timer on my brushes won't be of use to me anymore then huh? After the 180 minutes or whatever it is when you're suppose to put on a new acne brush head.

                      Hi there, thanks so much for your question. For your cleansing brush head if you are using it for twice per day we suggest changing your brush head after 90 days. If you are using Smart Profile or Smart Profile Uplift and using Dynamic Brush Head or the new Revitalizing Brush Head the brush head contains a chip which the device will read and will let you know when it is time to change your brush head, which is after 180 uses and will not interfere with your Sonic Foundation Brush Head usage.

                      Hi there, thank you so much for your question. It really is your preference of which speed you would use. Depending on your foundation (fuller coverage, thicker, cream or demi - matte) a higher speed will offer fantastic blending too. For the area around your nose where you feel it may be streaky, spend a bit more time in that area to let the brush head blend your foundation completely. Happy blending! :)

                    I have a Mia 2. It gives a certain pulse, so to speak, when I need to go to a different part of my face and runs for a minute total. Do you use this brush in the same order and switch areas like you do with the cleansing brush, or do you just ignore the pulses? Or does this brush not work with the Mia 2?

                      Try using speed two for blending your foundation. Apply your foundation to your skin as you normally would and then use the foundation brush head to blend. Your foundation will spread slightly and then blend into your skin. Keep blending until you feel you have received your desired finish. Thanks for your question!

                  • Q:

                    Hello! I use a full coverage cream foundation and I get ABSOLUTELY FULL COVERAGE when I use a flat top Kabuki brush and stimple/ pat in the foundation onto my skin. When I buff the foundation with a brush I get less coverage and my malasma on my cheeks and forehead (hyperpigmentation) peeks thru. Will this Clarisonic Foundation Brush provide the same full coverage the first go around or will it just blend so well it will sheer out my foundation, causing me to apply more foundation to get full coverage? Will the vibration of the brush work like a stimple/patting application?
