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.

    Comments about ULTA Buffing Brush:

    I have used sponges, flat foundation brushes and my fingers to apply foundation. I figured I'd try the latest buffing brush. It really does make a difference! My foundation goes on quickly and evenly -- gives an airbrushed look as promised! It's now my go-to brush every day!

          Switched form the original flat foundation brush to this after watching a million foundation tutorials. It's way better. Allows you to work fast and use both dabbing and circular blending.

              I usually use a sponge because I have dry skin but this is amazing!! I never thought a brush would work so well!! Does get messy having to get make up out on your hand and then apply with the brush.

                      ULTA Buffing Brush features densely packed bristles, similar to a kabuki brush.

                    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

                      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:
