  • From flat-top kabuki brushes to silicone sponges, there are almost too many tools to apply foundation.
  • The Sephora Collection PRO Flawless Airbrush #56 is a basic, non-gimmicky foundation brush that gives you a seamless finish with your favorite cream or powder products.

There are so many options for applying face makeup these days, from sponges to silicone sponges to oddly-shaped brushes that claim to give you an airbrushed finish. But regular old foundation brushes shouldn’t be overlooked.

Even within that category, the possibilities are seemingly endless. There are flat-top kabuki brushes, paddle brushes, angled brushes, round brushes, and electric brushes. How can you choose just one? And what’s the difference between them all, anyway?

A lot depends on what kind of coverage you prefer and what your makeup application goals are, but you don’t need to amass a huge collection — one brush can work for the majority of base products.

I tend to apply light BB creams and skin tints with my fingers and use brushes for medium or higher coverage. A foundation brush can also help blend out stubborn cream products. If my makeup is starting pill up from the warmth of my fingers, I’ll switch to a brush to get rid of any weird clumps.
