If anyone ever asked how I apply my foundation I’d instantly say, “Fingers!” but in recent years that’s not the case! I’m actually an avid concealer brush user lately. One of my favorite concealer brushes cost all over $3 bucks! It’s the E.L.F. Studio Concealer Brush. You can’t blend with it but it is an excellent flat head brush that works a treat to “paint” concealer into place and also acts to sheer out thicker, creamer formulas.
Another great one? The Sephora #57 as well as the Marc Jacobs The Conceal Full Cover Correcting Brush. I use one of these two to blend my concealer and truly they do an excellent job perfectly and smoothly out concealer to an airbrushed finish.
Here’s a look!
Having recently purchased Kat Von D’s new Lock-It Creme Concealer I was tempted to also indulge in her Lock-It Edge Concealer Brush ($24). This has an interesting sculpted brush head that delivers a 360 degree, precise blending technique. It was created to fit right under your eyes but can also be used to blend areas on your face as well! I haven’t tried it yet because when I saw it in person it looked a little big for my eye area but I’m hearing such good things I think it’ll come home with me soon!
Now the Urban Decay The Finger Brush ($26) is actually the brush I’m most interested in. This one has a way smaller head than Kat’s version and apparently it gives you the same technique and blending abilities that your finger would but with a way better airbrushed finish. The smaller head allows for a strippling blending technique that gets concealer smooth and flawless!
Do you typically use your fingers to apply foundation?
Or is there some special tool or brush you prefer using?
I’m a combination of both myself! Fingers and brush are used to get the job done here!
Both the Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Brush and Urban Decay Finger Brush are available now at Sephora.com.
