Beauty Blender vs. Foundation Brush: The Foundation Tips Everyone Wants to Know

The question is always, which is better - using a foundation brush or a beauty blender? And which beauty blender brand should I use?

I find a lot of times, women do not understand the benefits behind each product. Today, I am breaking it all down for you!

Are you a visual learner? Me too. Check out my Youtube Channel. I've put together an easy video for foundation application. Remember, if you like my videos, be sure to like, share and subscribe!

The Beauty Blender:

The beauty blender is a great tool to always have in your makeup bag - even if you don’t plan on using it within your daily routine. But for foundation, this tool will give you an even application; however a much lighter coverage than an actual brush would provide. A beauty blender tends to soak up the product a little bit, but the benefit of how well it blends makes it worth it. As described in my course, you must use a beauty blender dampened. A dry sponge will not blend or apply your foundation - instead it will  only soak up the product.

Which Beauty Blender?

The one that I typically recommend is the on brand and original Beauty Blender. BUT Amazon sells a five pack of beauty blenders and they are AMAZING and a tenth of the price of the original Beauty Blender! Grab the five pack from Amazon for $8.99 HERE.

The Foundation Brush:

A Kabuki foundation brush will give you a heavier coverage and a more direct application. It tends to take less time to apply and this is what I go for when I am low on time. For the past ten years, I have continually recommended the Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki Brush. I love this specific foundation brush for any type of foundation, no matter the coverage. It applies perfectly every single time.
