After sitting in one a few Luxury Makeup masterclasses, I noticed that none of the leading makeup artist used a buffing brush to buff foundations into their models skin and when I queried them about it, it always came back to one thing; Control. Though you get a more natural effect with a buffing brush, sometimes tipped foundation brush might be just want you need to get a smooth, even layer of foundation and obtain a more seamless look.


You already know that I’m a luxury brush addict so when I decided to go and buy a new foundation brush, I had to go big or go home. I decided to pick up the Estee Lauder Foundation Brush  (RRP £29.00) which is a sleek little thing with tapered brush head which easily paints along the contours of my face. I knew I would love this brush as I absolutely adore all my Estee Lauder brushes and I’m hoping to get a minimum of 5 years from this brush (because I need to justify the amount of money I spent on this brush when my mum sees this post)
