Item 2241952

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 use this with my Too Faced - Born This Way foundation. It applies beautifully, no mess, streaks, cakiness or unevenness to my skin. This is the only brush I use for foundation now.

      Comments about Tarte The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush:

      So many beauty bloggers recommended this brush but it's not really a favorite. It applies liquid foundation kind of streaky but it does okay with powder. Maybe I'm using it wrong but I doubt it lol

      I splurged on this brush because I just felt like I needed to have it. It is well worth it, it's nice and big so it's a really quick way to apply your foundation quickly if you need to. It leaves a beautiful finish, one of my all time favorites for foundation

            • Q:

              I use the Tarte Hybrid Gel foundation and typically use a beauty blender to apply it. Would this brush work better with that type of foundation? Will it cause it to look streaky?

              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?
