The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush

Item #: 2241952

Ask a Question
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. Vegan friendly.
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.

                I was iffy about the price, but soooo worth it! Applied my foundation super fast and looked airbrushed. Little to no product left on the brush. Great if you want more coverage, sometimes the beauty blender is a lighter coverage. Felt super soft when applying.
                Have yet to wash brush yet, so fingers crossed it holds up well. This will probably be my new go to foundation applicator.

                      • 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?

                          A:

                          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!
