I recently heard about a 'Stippling Brush' that people were raving about and were advising everyone to get. So once I'd learnt there was a brush out there that I didn't have, I rushed straight out to buy it. Took me a while, as apparently other people in Surrey had also heard about it too as they were out of stock for a good few weeks!
I chose the Real Techniques Stippling Brush as it was reasonably priced at £11.99 and it was suggested on one of the websites I went on. However once I got the brush home I realised I didn't actually know what product it was meant for or how I used it! Ooops. I'm quite an impulse buyer and don't always think about things before I buy - hence why I can write a beauty blog as I've tried most products out there!
After a few searches on Youtube I found a fantastic tutorial by goss makeup artist which shows how to apply liquid foundation with the stippling brush. The fantastic thing about this brush is that there's no shedding of the bristles, its soft and using the technique from the video it leaves my foundation looking amazing! After using this brush I literally get a HD effect with my makeup. You can use this to apply powder or blusher but so far I've only really used it with foundation. Although I'd be interested to see how cream blush looks when applied with this brush!
From the video you can see you don't use the brush as you would with a normal foundation brush and instead you sort of make small circular movements all over the skin until its all blended in. I think that's why this brush gives such a great finish and HD effect.
Now I know what this fantastic brush is used for I'll definitely keep using it and might even invest in another so I've got one for liquid foundation and one for powders.
