FREE deluxe mini Tarteist Lip Paint w/any $30 Tarte purchase
A revolutionary foundation brush that is not only supremely soft, versatile and durable for use, but also made of sustainably harvested bamboo.

This foundation brush flawlessly blends and buffs makeup for a perfectly airbrushed effect.
Dispense a quarter-size amount of foundation to the back of your hand. Pick up a small amount using the Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush and brush onto your skin, starting at the center of your face and blending out. Achieve a flawless, even complexion by soft circular buffing sweeps.

To clean brush: Run the bristles of the makeup brush under warm running water, avoiding the handle. Apply a small amount of shampoo to bristles and work into a light lather. Rinse bristles thoroughly under running water and continue rinsing until water runs clear. Gently squeeze excess water out of bristles and place on a level surface to air-dry before next use. Clean brush as often as needed.

                          This is our best-selling foundation brush and is super plush & fluffy. It features ultra-soft, synthetic bristles perfect for applying liquid foundation formulas.

                      • Q:

                        lately I've been using the amazon clay liquid foundation and also the the powder foundation (as a setting powder to get more coverage) and i was wondering if i could use this brush for the liquid then the powder right after. will it ruin or wear out the brush? would it still hold all the products? do i need to use two separate brushes?

                          Thanks for reaching out, Brooke! The buffer applies our Amazonian clay full coverage liquid foundation like a dream & works great across other foundation formulas. However, we don't recommend applying both liquid & powder formulas with the same brush as it could cause uneven applications. For our Amazonian clay airbrush foundation, we recommend using it's custom airbuki powder foundation brush. Hope this helps!
