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:

    I am over 50 and have very uneven skin tone. I used a foundation brush, but never really got the smooth coverage I wanted, until I used this brush head on my Clarisonic. I would definitely recommend this product.

        Comments about Clarisonic Sonic Foundation Brush Head:

        Saw this on Tati Westbrook's site and she kept using it over and over again, so I thought I would use some of my points to purchase it and give it a whirl.
        I wear BB or CC creams daily and foundations on special occasions primarily because I don't enjoy the appplication (with a brush or sponge). This definitely changed the game for me! Application is super easy, evens out my skin and coverage. Be warned - you do not need as much product on your face with this brush. Go light with cream or liquid foundation first, and build up as needed. I'm super pleased with this product and would repurchase again!

          I was extremely exited to receive this !! It was easy and fun to use . I've used it daily since it came in the mail. I like the application and thought it would save me time in the morning getting ready. I'm not sure it has. Yes I would recommend and will buy again. It blends well using liquid and then powder foundation. I will be buying a second one for my broncer and highlighter.

          Comments about Clarisonic Sonic Foundation Brush Head:

          I like it. Make me more prone to clean it eveyday. Because it cleans out effortlessly compared to standard foundation brushes. I haven't had issues using one attachment to do foundation contour ans highlight. I turn it and put it to a paper towel. That cleans it enough between each applications. Really the only bad thing is a couple days after finally deciding to buy it. The points go up to 5x on it. So kinda disappointed about that. It's does cause streaking but just gotta get the feeling of it. Let it work it in and they seem to smooth out.

            This brush dramatically cuts my makeup application down. Who doesnt love extra time in the morning? It applies smoothly and flawlessly. It also wastes less foundation since there is almost none left on the brush After application. I really love this product. I would say its even a reason to go yourself a Clarisonic if you dont already have one.

              This is the best brush ever. It gives you the best flawless finish. I had seen some good reviews and some bad ones on YouTube but, I still went ahead and bought it. It was the best money I have spend on a brush for sure. I'm considering getting a second one just to have it as a back up.

                  Just curious, what setting is best to use with this for the smart profile? 1,2,3, or 4? The brush feels a bit weird when using it aorund the nose, and is a bit streaky. Just wondering what the ideal speed is.

                    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! :)

                • Q:

                  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?

                  I have the Mia 2. What speed do you use to apply foundation with the Sonic Foundation brush head? Also, does the makeup splatter at all during application? Finally, I am using a liquid foundation with sheer to medium coverage. Do I put the foundation in the palm of my hand and then dip the brush in it?

                    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?
