Hey everyone 👋 let me start by saying that this isn’t just my favourite brush to use when applying foundation cause I also use this brush to buff out my concealer, colour corrector & anything else I apply to the base of my make up. Its just such a versatile brush made with amazingly densely packed bristles, that leave a flawless finish behind. So if you wanna know more keep on reading 👇
“Be original, Be natural, Be good”
For those who may not have come across this brand before their motto is wanting to make people feel beautiful, not just look beautiful & they do this by making sure they use nourishing minerals in all their products 👌. Now I’m sure the mineral elements are more so in their foundations etc (actual makeup 💄 ) rather than their makeup tools, but you can immediately tell that they put time & effort into using GOOD materials/ingredients for their products.
Bristles tighter than a group of friends 😅
Just look at her 😍 …do you see what I mean about the densely packed bristles? Somehow it works so well in giving a SMOOTH even application, to a very BUILD-ABLE coverage. It also doesn’t pack products on too heavily so you won’t end up with a cake face 🎂… I mean unless you wanna be cake faced 🙋, then you go ahead & cake up your face babygirl 😘. This brush was actually my first purchase of “getting proper makeup stuff” I remember the day so clearly! I walked into Debenhams to get a foundation & ended up choosing the Estee Lauder Double Wear, which you can read my thoughts on here . I then asked the lady how I should apply it, to which she recommended the BareMinerals brush. I spent just as much on this brush as I did the foundation 💸 Can you believe that 😱
The reason why she recommended me to use this brush 🖌 instead of a flat foundation brush is cause I suffered from acne throughout my teens & the acne scarring left like little indents on my skin (if you suffer from the same thing you’ll know EXACTLY what I mean) but yeah so these bristles would apply the foundation on the surface of my skin as well as those indents to get an all over even application 🙌 I think her exact words were that the brush would apply foundation in all the bumps! haha
Precision Face Brush
So this whole time I actually thought this was a stippling brush but its actually the Precision Face Brush… which does make sense now that I think about it cause it clearly says it on the brush *facepalm* On their website they state that:
This professional brush allows you to get the exact build able coverage you’re looking for. Silky synthetic bristles are angled to fit the contours of your face for precise medium-full coverage.
Can I just say that I don’t really know much about brushes, so I didnt know the brush was made of synthetic hairs until this very moment 😅… I don’t even know if thats a standard with brushes or not? 🤔 I just know that I bought this brush in summer 2014 🗓 & so far I’ve had NO fall out from it 🙌 & the bristles themselves still feel so soft too! Now just imagine how many times I’ve washed it, paying for quality definitely pays off. If I’m completely honest I don’t use specialised brush cleansers to wash my brushes 🙈 I know, I know thats a crime to some of you but I use a hand wash… yeah thats right I use this one & I can honestly say it provides such DEEP cleaning & to this day the brush still applies foundation the same exact way it did when it was brand new!
How do I use it?
Well, considering I thought it was a stippling brush this ENTIRE time I used stippling motions, which made sense to me cause I just wanted to get coverage in all the indents my face had & this worked extremely well for me, aside from the fact that my arm got tired & I was constantly being made fun of for hitting my face repeatedly haha 😅 but atleast I got a coverage that LASTED all night long ⏱. Up until I bought this brush I always used those little triangle cosmetic sponges from Boots, which don’t get me wrong are awesome ( & yeah I was using sponges WAAAAAY before beauty blenders were a thing 💁) but shifting over to the brush was a decision which I never regretted!
