Find in Store-

A revolutionary foundation brush that is not only supremely soft, versatile and durable for use, but also made of sustainably harvested bamboo.

This foundation brush flawlessly blends and buffs makeup for a perfectly airbrushed effect. Vegan friendly.
Dispense a quarter-size amount of foundation to the back of your hand. Pick up a small amount using the Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush and brush onto your skin, starting at the center of your face and blending out. Achieve a flawless, even complexion by soft circular buffing sweeps.

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.

      I decided to buy this brush after watching my favorite YouTube artist, and it was honestly the best decision I ever made. I've used it with three different liquid foundations and it works wonders. Perfect with each.

        Comments about Tarte The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush:

        For the amount of $ I spent on this brush, it should last forever with proper care. Although mine held together for over a year, I was disappointed that the bristles began to fall out and stay on my face. Then, they began falling out in clumps. Wouldn't buy again.

              I watched so many beauty bloggers videos raving about this brush and I find it lacking. I'm 34 years old and I have dry skin so maybe it's just my face and these wrinkle, but I found it streaky and irritating to my skin no matter how gently I buffed out my liquid foundation. Give me a beauty blender any day!!

                Makes application a breeze

                By Mary N

                from Washington

                Comments about Tarte The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush:

                At first I wasn't too sure about this brush and if it was worth the price. Although, as I continued to use it I found myself applying my foundation in no time, I like how it works better with more liquid foundation than thicker ones (which I first used it with a thicker foundation). Applying foundation is so easy and it blends everything out perfectly, it doesn't not leave any streaks behind. I also haven't had any issues with it shedding on my face. This brush is so soft- feels nice to use on your face and the handle is comfortable to hold. I would definitely recommend.

                  I've only been using this for a few weeks so I can't speak to durability but BOY do I love the way it feels! Silky soft on my sensitive skin, smooth to apply foundation or blend, and doesn't absorb a ton of product. Hopefully it holds up well because then I would officially have no complaints!

                      Can I use this brush with the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea water foundation? I was wondering this since it's a watery fluid. Or should I just get the brush that comes with the foundation?
