Editor's TipEditor's Tip

Synthetic bristle brushes are best for cream and liquid products because they distribute the makeup evenly without absorbing too much. Use this with Smashbox’s Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Foundation for a camera-ready look.

Birchbox Breakdown

A staple in any makeup bag, this sturdy red and black foundation brush makes applying makeup effortless. The extra soft synthetic bristles deposit your foundation without wasting any and offer an even, full coverage that will have everyone noticing your perfect complexion.

How it Works

Extra soft synthetic bristles distribute liquid foundation evenly across skin for a flawless finish and even coverage. The medium size is large enough for quick coverage but small enough to get into tight spots around eyes and nose.

How to Use

Pump a small drop of liquid foundation onto the back of your hand and pick up a small amount with the brush. Starting from center of your face, blend outwards with even motions. Continue blending into hairline and past jawline to avoid unsightly lines.

Great Foundation/BB/CC Cream Brush!
Purchased

I was shopping at Nordstrom recently and was looking at Chanel brushes, and the counter person told me the Smashbox one was their favorite and way better. I didn't end up purchasing it then, but am definitely glad I got it here! Great all purpose blush, blends and applies evenly, works great with my CC creams, BB creams, as well as heavier foundations.

Awesome

Love love love this foundation brush - very soft bristles, but thick enough to give you the control you need. Recommend washing every other week or so. Very impressed by this brush!

Great brush

Couldn't ask for better brushes. I am addicted and have gotten rid of my others. Worth the money. Good coverage and soft.

Great brush!

I've been using the Smashbox Cosmetics Studio Skin Foundation Brush #13 for almost 4 years now - I love the way it applies foundation evenly and smoothly. When it starts to feel like the makeup is building up, I just gently wash it with shampoo and it's as good as new. I couldn't go back to applying foundation with my fingers - it's just so much nicer with this brush!

Great Brush!

My best friend gave this to me last Christmas. It's one of my most favorite brushes because it evenly distributes the liquid foundation without streaking. The bristles are soft but firm; good quality!

Amazing!
Purchased

I just recently began using brushes more for my foundation and this one is amazing! It really makes such a huge difference using a high quality brush to apply foundation. So far I've used it with BB cream and with MAC cream foundation and it was perfect for both. Highly recommended.

Great brush for everyday use
Purchased

I now use this brush everyday. My only complaint is that it's not very heavy, and I prefer brushes with a little more weight in the end. Functionally, though, it's fabulous. I love the feel of the brush on my face, and I love the red color!
