I. Foundation Brushes for a Smooth and Flawless Complexion

1. For your Foundation

When applying a cream or liquid foundation, we need:  Either a large flat brush that's round on the end (Foundation brush) and will blend everything together without leaving lines. Its bristles and shape help you easily blend the product onto your skin for an even complexion!

How to use? Place some foundation on your hand, on the brush or directly onto your face. Put some of the product onto the center of the face and blend it outwards in a back-and-forth movement, remembering to spread it to the hairline, the neck and around the nostrils to make sure that there are no lines.

Another option is to use a Foundation Sponge, which is the ideal accessory to apply foundation and liquid or cream concealers. Its pointed tip means you can be precise in your application: dark circles, around the nostrils... The rounded end perfectly evens out your complexion for a natural and adjustable look.

How to use? Lightly wet your Foundation Sponge and dry it with a clean cloth. Place a small amount of product on the sponge or directly onto your face. Apply your foundation or concealer by dabbing with the sponge. The pointed end allows you to apply your concealer with precision while the curved side evens out your foundation.

To highlight your cheekbones and contour your face, use the Blush Brush to apply blush, bronzer or highlighter.

How to use? After having taken some of your eyeshadow, apply it using back-and-forth movements along the crease of your eyelid, then blend the eyeshadow up to the eyebrow without adding any more product.

3. For the Eyeliner

The Liner Brush is perfect to easily and precisely apply your liner along your lash line.
Suitable for powder, cream or liquid textures, its very fine tapered tip allows the product to be applied with a high level of precision.

How to use? Apply the product from the inner corner of the eye towards the center of the eyelid. Then go from the outer corner to join up the line at the center of the eyelid. To elongate your eyes, you can also extend the line past the outer corner to create a small flick. If you're feeling creative, let your imagination run wild with graphic eyeliner designs in more vibrant colors.
