      Comments about Real Techniques Powder Brush:

      Great brush, very cheap but still good quality. It is super soft and is great for applying powder. The only down side to it is that it has static on the brush. This is kind of upsetting so I just have to move my hair all the way out of the way when I am applying makeup. Work the money though

                    • Q:

                      Would the brush work well to buff self tanner onto the face and body since it's rather large and has synthetic bristles?
                      Asked on 4/28/2016 by Miya from Charlotte, NC

                        A:

                        Hi Miya,

                        Such a great question! That Powder Brush is one of my favorites!

                        As much as I love it for things like powder, bronzer, blush, etc, I actually would recommend that you use a brush with shorter, denser bristles to apply self-tanner. That is going to give you a bit more control and will enable you to really buff the product into your skin.

                        My top recommendation would be the Buffing Brush that is found in the Core Collection (that is Ulta Item # 2229998). That is my absolute favorite Buffing Brush ever! I honestly don't think I could live with out it! :)

                        The other one I would recommend (if you don't want to buy the set) is our Expert Face Brush (Ulta Item # 2244502). That is one of our best sellers and I think you would love it.

                        Either of those two brushes would be a great tool for you to apply self-tanner.

                        Thanks - hope that helps!

                        HI Nat727,

                        The great thing about our Real Techniques brushes is that they are designed to be the ideal tool for whatever look you are going for.. The Powder Brush has synthetic taklon bristles, custom cut and crimped for ideal pick-up and release of most powders. The brush enables you to build and blend to your optimum coverage level, from either a natural, soft-powder look to a flawless, airbrushed finish.

                        Thanks!

                        Hope that helps!

                        Hi Bengalibarbie,

                        Such a great question! The wonderful thing about almost all of our Real Techniques brushes is that they have multiple uses. So, to answer your question, yes! You can use this for powder foundation, but also to apply bronzer.

                        I actually use mine to apply bronzer since it is so plush, it gives me that sun-kissed finish that I want.

                        Thanks!

                        A:

                        Hi Princess,

                        Great question! Contouring & Sculpting are so on trend right now! I hadn't been asked this question before, so I went to our experts, Sam & Nic Chapman, the sisters behind the Real Techniques line, and asked them.

                        This Powder brush has quite a large, plush brush head and may not be the best brush for working to get the sculpted look you are going for. In terms of applying contour powder (and blending), I would recommend something with a smaller head, and possibly something with a bit more angle to it.

                        You could look to use our Sculpting Set (http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod12191293), which has the amazing Sculpting Brush (for contour product application & great blending), a Setting brush (for highlighting) and a Fan Brush for powder application, precision contouring and some blending.

                        You could also look to use the Contouring brush in our Core Collection (http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod3220069). This brush is ideal for applying contour product as well as blending. Plus, it comes with my absolute favorite brush in the collection, the Buffing Brush!

                        Hope all that helps! Thanks again for a great question!
