    Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

    I was looking at high end brushes and then I saw this and decided to give it a try and I am so glad I did! This is now my foundation brush and my first foundation brush and I am very happy with it.
    It is affordable too so I am very happy with that as well.

      Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

      I use this brush every morning to apply my foundation. I love the even coverage it provides (so much better than applying with my fingertips)! It's very easy to clean; I just use a little Cetaphil wash once a week, and viola!

          I was looking for the perfect brush for liquid foundation and I'm SOOO happy I got this! So so so amazing for the price. Foundation goes on perfect when I use this. The only problem is that you definitely can't go too long without washing it

              I was recommended to use this to apply my Urban Decay Liquid Foundation. (i was finding that my skin was needing better coverage and moisture than my trusted Bare Minerals could achieve). I have found that I like this brand better than the Bare Mineral brushes I currently have. I will be replacing my old brushes with this brand when the time comes. :)

                      This is so easy to use! I squirt my foundation onto the back of my hand, then two the brush in it and apply the foundation evenly to my face and neck in sections. It works great and leaves my skin smooth and natural looking.

                        I'm new to makeup and I was wondering what does this brush work well for? As well can you use this brush to apply BB or CC creams? Also do you think it is a good brush to start off for beginners? Lastly, how do you clean this particular brush?

                          This brush is designed to apply and blend liquid and cream makeup formulas including BB and CC creams. It is easy to use and very versatile, so we would say, yes, it is great for beginners! Feel free to watch Real Techniques founder and makeup artist Sam Chapman's tutorial video here:
                          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVoRVmwKwo8

                          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:

                          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:

                      • Q:

                        How would you use this brush to apply the new BareMinerals liquid foundation? Would you place a drop of the foundation on the back of your hand, then dip the brush in it? Or directly apply the foundation on the brush then onto your face? I am confused as to how to use this brush for a liquid foundation since it does not have the reservoir built in like the bareminerals brush does. Thanks!!

                          The best method would likely be to distribute bareSkin Foundation to forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin, then buff and blend with Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, but we recommend experimenting with application to see what works best for you!

                        Does this brush give similar results to the sigma F80 ?
                        I have the F80 and I am looking for a less expensive version of it.
