          The beauty blender is very soft. The blender holder helps keep it clean. The brushes are very soft and I like the shape they are in.

                      New to all of the make-up ins and outs, so don't have many tools for applying. This is the perfect set of foundation and blending tools for a "newbie" as myself. Very soft and versatile, multi-use brushes.

                          Hi MrldCtyGirl,

                          At this time, the drying stand does not have drainage holes in the bottom. What I recommend doing is rinsing it out with hot water about 1x/week and letting it dry upside down.

                          Thanks!

                          Hi Evelyn,

                          Yes - the larger brush is actually our Expert Face brush, which is perfect for foundation blending and application.

                          Thanks!
