Brush and Application Tools Explained

Have you ever found yourself confused by the many options and wondering which brushes are best for your preferred foundations, concealers and finishing powders? Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques offers a wide variety of foundation brushes and application tools.  Let’s talk about how to pair your skin care products with the best application tool for you.  The Large Bamboo , Deluxe Kabouki and Large Powder Brush are best for powder based products.  This would include powder foundations, pressed foundations and finishing powders.  These brushes are designed to hold powders and apply them in a light but even coat to the face.  This makes it possible to control the amount of product that is applied.  For the finishing powders where a thin layer is ideal, one application with these brushes is perfect.  With the powder and pressed foundations, the powder brushes allow for repeated layers to give the desired amount of coverage. 

The Foundation Brush  is the best tool for the creme foundations and creme and corrective concealers.  This brush has a flat rounded shape and firm bristles which allow for precise application of crème products and holds up to a heavier product.  The size of the brush gives increased control of the amount of product applied to the face.

Our next brush is the Oval Eye/Concealer Brush. This brush works similarly to the foundation brush with the only difference being the size.  It is recommended for the crème concealer and the corrective concealer. The smaller size of the brush allows for even greater control of the amount of product used and is ideal for covering the more difficult parts of the face such as the nose and eye areas as well as spot treatments. 

The last application tool for the foundations is a sponge rather than a brush.  The Blending Sponge is perfect for the Crème foundation, crème concealers and corrective concealers.  Once these products are applied with the proper brush this sponge can blend the product all over the face.  Its unique shape allows for flat surface blending as well as blending in the creases of the face.  The sponge is firm enough to move the makeup while still being gentle to your skin.  For those of us with limited experience applying makeup this sponge is an easy tool to use and gives a beautiful blended finish every time.

Having quality brushes and tools for your foundation and concealer application is important.  By using the appropriate applicators, you can avoid embarrassing makeup lines and have a beautiful flawless finish every time. We have chosen our applicator tools carefully to ensure the highest quality while being eco and vegan friendly.
