Application technique 5: Kabuki Brush
A lot of people are familiar with kabuki brushes. They are pretty much an all purpose makeup staple. They can be used for mineral foundation, loose powder, blushes, bronzers and even liquid foundation.
The flat top kabuki brush is the one most people use for liquid foundation application, and similar to a stippling brush, they can offer a really flawless look.
The application of liquid foundation with a kabuki brush is pretty much the same as with a stippling brush, however the difference is these kabuki brushes tend to be a lot more dense that stippling brushes.
They come in many different shapes and sizes for different purposes such as flat top for liquid foundation, large buffing brushes and smaller angled brushes for contouring.
If you haven't tried kabuki brushes for liquid foundation, I suggest you grab yours and give it a go!!
If you apply foundation with a stippling brush, it's very similar to this, the coverage is buildable and the end result is flawless skin. It really helps to cover acne and scars.
However, I do suggest dotting the product directly onto your face and then blending or stippling with your kabuki brush because they can sometimes pick up a lot of product.
For powder foundations, kabuki brushes are a popular method of application. They are able to really work the powder into the skin and blend it evenly.
Usually you swirl the brush in a bit of product, tap off the excess and buff onto your face. The powder gets worked into the brush and it delivers the right amount of product, making is quite buildable and avoiding a cakey look.
