This double-ended foundation brush builds and blends your base to new levels of perfection.

Use the big rounded side for all-over buffing, the sharp pointed tip to get into tiny crevices, and the flat end to breeze through your baking and contouring routines. Always use damp for the most airbrush results, and don’t forget to wash it every time you use it. It also works perfectly for baking.
