It can be frustrating to find the perfect shade of foundation or tinted moisturizer when you can’t find the perfect way to apply it. While some foundations may be applied with the fingers or even a makeup sponge, I find no better or more flawless application than when I use a “stippling” style makeup brush. The Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Stippling Brush allows for precise makeup application while still providing a soft, airbrushed look to the skin. This under $10 makeup brush gives the perfect finish to the skin without breaking the bank like many higher-end alternatives do. Overall, it’s worth the cheap price and is a must-have in your makeup brush collection!
This dual-fibre stippling brush, created by Samantha Chapman of Pixiwoo fame on Youtube, provides a natural and flawless application of all sorts of makeup products. It can be used to gently “buff” foundation or concealer into the skin (giving you that airbrushed look) or to apply powder or cream blushers or bronzer to the cheeks. The short, flat bristles evenly distribute products while you apply them, making your skin red-carpet flawless. I use the brush to apply my foundation each day – I start by dabbing some product onto my face with the brush before
buffing it into my skin with short, quick circular motions. The effect is not “cakey” or “fake” looking as many other methods of applying foundation can be. The ultra-plush taklon bristles feel great against the skin – not scratchy or irritating whatsoever. The brush stands on its own for easy storage, and the aluminum handle is light-weight and makes the brush easy to hold.
This Stippling Makeup Brush from Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman is key for anyone who wants to apply foundation, blush, bronzer or highlighters (both cream and powder) in way that will make skin look dewy and flawless for that “glowing from within” look!
