Makeup Brush No. 1: Foundation Brush The brush: If you are applying liquid foundation, you want to choose a synthetic brush, as synthetic hairs soak up less product than natural hair, says makeup artist Landy Dean. If you want to layer your foundation for more coverage, makeup artist and author of "Beauty Rewind" Taylor Babaian says to choose a brush in a half-sphere shape, like Shiseido Foundation Brush, $30. If you just want a light layer of foundation, use a flat top brush like Sonia Kashuk Kashuk Tools Synthetic Flat Top Multipurpose Brush, $15.79.
Why you need it: Using the correct brush blends and buffs foundation into the skin, resulting in a smooth, airbrushed finish.
How to use it: Squeeze your foundation onto the top of your hand. Dip the brush in, and then buff it into the skin using circular motions. Start from the center of your face and work toward your hairline.
