Coming to the type & purpose & USE of the makeup brushes!
FOUNDATION BRUSH-I never felt the need of any foundation brush before. But trust me, once you start using it you will never ever turn your back on it! It just gives such a flawless look. A foundation brush should be fluffy & flat.
To use it -Just dip it in the loose powder or bronzers using circular motion, tap off the excess before using it on face & then sweep over your face following the natural contours. Use light Strokes to give a natural finish. OR -use downward strokes -just the touch ups to apply loose powder, this would give a natural flawless look & powder wouldn’t mess up with the facial hairs.
