          Gives the most even coverage of powder foundation I have seen. Can use with any powder foundation. Compact size makes for easy travel, even in a clutch purse.

            I bought this because I hated my Bare Minerals full foundation app brush. I felt like that one just didn't put the powder on my face.
            With this brush it does! It gets into all areas of my face! I love it! So glad I found it!

                              This brush is really good because the bristles are short and hold the foundation so well and you don't waste product like you do using a kabuki or regular foundation brush. Love love this brush it is worth every penny.

                                  This brush features densely packed, firm bristles that make it ideal for fuller coverage such as with foundation. For setting powder application or sheer application of products, instead use a fluffy brush with less dense bristles such as IT Brushes for ULTA Live Beauty Fully Flawless Powder Brush #202:

                                  Once weekly, use a gentle hair shampoo (such as baby shampoo) or brush shampoo, and using cool water, gently work a lather into the bristles. Rinse with cool water until water runs clear. Lay flat to dry. You can also use a brush cleaner spray to spritz your brush in between uses to keep it clean until its next shampoo (recommended for acne-prone skin).

                                  This brush was designed specifically for use with Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation, but it works well with any and all pressed or loose powder formulas. For liquid formulas, we would instead recommend Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush (Item #: 2241952), which is designed to best apply liquid foundation:
