Last week I posted on some of the new brushes from Tweezerman, so this week I’m focussing on the Tweezerman BrushiQ Foundation Brushes. To be honest, with foundation, I’m a dab-it-on-with-my-fingers person. I wear BB creams a lot and I have to say it wouldn’t even occur to me to use a brush for that. However, with so many new foundation launches, these brushes could not come at a better time because I’ve been able to put them properly to the test.

First up, proper, thick handles that give you exactly the right amount of control – it’s something that you only think about if you really focus in on a brush, but I expect it’s a key issue for makeup artists. The brush that I love is the Flat Top Foundation (third up in the picture) which is £19.95. I put a dab of foundation in my hand and the firmness and flatness of it scoops up all the product in one but doesn’t deposit all in one! If you like a firm brush that drives foundation to a seamless finish, it’s this one, and you need to use circular motions with it to get the best effect.

I’m less a fan of the Flat Foundation Brush, £19.95, but that’s because it feels like I’m painting my face and need to adjust quantity of product – you certainly do get a perfect finish with it but I prefer the speed and efficiency of the Flat Top. The Flat Foundation Brush I think is for those who enjoy the artistry of the base application with a more leisurely approach. Lastly, the Pointed Foundation Brush, £19.95, which falls somewhere between the other two – it’s a half way house between painting and driving.

I can’t not mention the huuuuge Powder Brush, £29.95, again – I’ve never had my face brushed with a small hamster, but I’m guessing it might not feel dissimilar to this. It gives a whisper of powder across the face – which is all anyone needs for setting and perfecting.

As a recap, Tweezerman BrushiQ Foundation Brushes aren’t made with animal hair – that’s a big plus. It’s clever artificial hair (DuPont Natrafil) that does the same job. They’re all HERE on a three for two.
