Buff your way to airbrushed complexion perfection with the Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush! The perfect complement to the Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation, this soft, versatile, cruelty-free brush allows you to flawlessly apply powder foundation like a pro. Just gently press the perfectly-sized brush into the custom mesh sifter on the Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation for clean and easy application every time. Vegan friendly.
To apply Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation, gently push the Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush into the mesh sifter - no shaking necessary! Tap away the excess and then buff the moisture-rich powder onto skin in circular motions until desired coverage is achieved.

To clean brush: Run the bristles of the makeup brush under warm running water, avoiding the handle. Apply a small amount of shampoo to bristles and work into a light lather. Rinse bristles thoroughly under running water and continue rinsing until water runs clear. Gently squeeze excess water out of bristles and place on a level surface to air-dry before next use. Clean brush as often as needed.

Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

love the finish this brush gives, but it doesn't blend very well. great for better coverage though. i have a lot of acne scars and it did well to just dab powder on those areas and cover them completely.

    Comments about Tarte Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush:

    This is by far my favorite brush to use. The brush head is densely packed, incredibly soft, and it seamlessly blends out my liquid foundation.
    I waited to review until I washed it and it came out the same as new.
    My only issue is that the handle's too wide and short to be completely comfortable if I need to buff anything out more than usual. Fortunately, it works perfectly with my everyday foundation.

        I love all my Tarte brushes — I predominantly use this with my powder foundation, but I've also found that it's great for the final blending of my shape tape concealer.

              I use this with my Baremineral foundation. It applies easily and gives you full coverage. Finally found the one after buying several other foundation brushes including 2 tarte, several real technique and a couple of IT brushes.

                What is the diameter across the top of the brush? I recently invested in a very expensive Kabuki brush that is too large to fit in my powder container.

                  A:

                  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 The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush (Item #: 2241952), which is designed to best apply liquid foundation:

                  A:

                  Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush features dense bristles to provide fuller coverage, so we typically don't recommend it for bronzer or blush application. A better suited brush for bronzer application may be the The Slenderizer Bamboo Contouring Brush:

                  A:

                  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:

                  A:

                  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).
