      Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

      I used this brush to apply Bare Minerals power even though the box reccomends it for creme or liquid foundation. The brush applied the amount of coverage I needed for my dark spots. The only thing I didn't like is it has a very long handle ot suitable for everyday travel.

              Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

              I was SO EXCITED for this brush. Everyone raves about it. However. after using this brush a few times, it started shedding. When I say it started shedding I mean the hairs come out like 10- 20 at a time. When I put my foundation on, it leaves at least 5 on my face and causes the worse streakiness. I had higher hopes. I like the idea of it and may try the same brush in a different brand.

                Can you use this brush for powder products such as blush or bronzer?

                  A:

                  This brush is best for all-over application and blending of foundation, though it can be used to apply and blend blush and bronzer to broad areas of the face such as the apples of the cheeks or to contour the cheek bones. We also suggest Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, which can be used in endless versatile ways including concealing and contouring:

                  A:

                  Either brush is ideal for this use! Expert Face Brush is designed to apply and blend cream and liquid formulas such as tinted moisturizer and cream/liquid concealer, while Stippling Brush is compatible with all formulas, cream/liquid or powder.

              • Q:

                I saw a makeup tutorial online where the poster used this brush to apply Bare Minerals original mineral foundation. Is this brush mainly used for liquids and creams or can it effectively be used for mineral makeup and deliver a flawless and beautiful look?

                  This brush is designed to apply and blend liquid and cream makeup formulas, though you can certainly experiment with application of other powder formula products. Feel free to watch Real Techniques founder and makeup artist Sam Chapman's tutorial video here:

                  A:

                  We recommend cleaning your brushes at least once weekly (more often if you have acne-prone skin). Use a brush shampoo or mild hair shampoo, and work into the bristles to create a lather with cool water. Rinse until the water runs clear. Lay flat to dry. You can also spritz your brushes with brush cleaner spray in between uses to keep them clean in between shampoos.

                  A:

                  The Expert Face Brush is for a lighter application of foundation and/or powder. The densely cut bristles and use of a "buffing" motion really push the foundation into the skin, leaving lighter coverage overall.

                  The angled cut of the Foundation Brush allows you not only to really get into the crevices of your skin, but it enables you to build the coverage that you need. The sweeping application also provides for more coverage than the Expert Face brush since this brush wouldn’t be used to buff the foundation/powder into the skin. Overall, this allows for more precise application of your foundations or powders.
