Foundations brushes are perfect to apply foundations and concealers faster, while getting more coverage. The best full coverage foundation that works well with a foundation brush is a liquid formula like the Can't Stop Won't Stop matte foundation. It’s also the best foundation for oily skin to apply with a brush since the foundation quickly sets for an all-day matte finish. Apply the foundation in small sections onto your face with stippling motions to get max coverage.
How to clean a foundation brush?
First wet the foundation brush under warm water. Then add brush cleanser onto your palm and swirl the brush with circular motions. If you don’t have brush cleanser, make your own by mixing dish soap with conditioner. Liquid formulas, especially waterproof foundation formulas, are tougher to clean, so continue to swirl the brush until the water runs clear. In between deep cleans, use a brush cleanser spray like our On the Spot to quickly disinfect your foundation brush after each use.
How to know what foundation is right for you?
Finding the best foundation for you depends a lot on your skin type and the kind of finish you’re looking for. The best foundation for dry skin keeps the skin looking hydrated while covering dry spots instead of emphasizing them. For moisture, try the Total Control Drop foundation. It’s a great foundation for dry skin since you can mix in your favourite face oil with the foundation! Or if you’re on the oilier side, try a liquid foundation with a matte finish. If you prefer using powder, the best powder foundation to keep your face shine-free contains mattifying ingredients, like the Can’t Stop Won’t Stop pressed powder. Once you discover a formula that works for you, figure out your foundation match by testing the foundation on your jaw and letting it oxidize. Whatever shade is the closest to your skin tone is the shade you should go for.
