The Ulta Buffing Brush can be used for a variety of makeup applications but is ideal for mineral and face powders. Use Ulta Brush & Sponge Cleaner to regularly clean your brushes.
Gently buff your powder onto your face working from the center of your face outward and upward using small circular motions. The smaller the circular motions, the more of an air-brushed look you will achieve.

        I use this with the L'Oreal cushion foundation, it works very well. Had been using IT cosmetic brush that I loved but after a couple of washes all the hair started coming out of it. This one's way better value for the money.

          I use this brush to buff out my Clinique chubby stick contour, and it works amazing! I also use it less frequently to buff out ny highly, and again it works perfect. Really happy with the brush! The brisels are very soft and haven't seen any brisel loss.

                  • Q:

                    I am purchasing the Ulta Contour Palette & Ulta brushes to go along with it. When browsing thru the brushes I noticed that the Ulta Highlight Brush was completely sold out & unavailable. Can I use the Buffing brush to apply my contour highlighting powder & if not, which other brush would you recommend me using besides the Highlighting brush thats currently unavailable? Thank you I ❤ Ulta

                      A:

                      This brush can produce either medium coverage or full coverage. The smaller the circular motions you buff, the more coverage and more airbrushed finish you will receive.

                      A:

                      Rather than this brush, which is ideal for powder formulas, instead we recommend using the ULTA Angled Foundation Brush with liquid and cream products such as BB cream. This is a firmer brush, with more compact brush hairs that will apply liquid and cream products much more evenly and precisely:
