Foundation brushes and foundation are like butter and toast. They’re good on their own but even better together. Though it’s fine to just use your fingertips (or a sponge), a foundation brush is a great alternative if you want to get a more airbrushed finish (and it’s a less messy experience overall since the bristles are doing most of the work).
As for choosing the best foundation brush? Well, that comes down to a few different factors, like how much coverage you like and the amount of control you prefer during the application. For some, the type of bristles (synthetic vs. not) are also important.
If you’re starting to feel slightly overwhelmed by the options, don’t worry. We’ve compiled the 13 best foundation brushes for every skin type, texture and preference ahead.
