WHAT IS A POWDER BRUSH FOR?

A powder brush is a tool used to apply mineral powder skincare and makeup. A high-quality powder brush is the secret to even coverage and a flawless finish that gives you the radiant complexion you desire. Whether you have clear, smooth skin or suffer from breakouts or skin sensitivities, you can build the coverage that you need to feel confident when you look in the mirror.

There are many different types of powder brushes, including:

  • Setting powder brushes
  • Powder brushes for foundation and oil-absorbing powders
  • Brushes for pressed-powder bronzers and highlighters

The most important face powder brush in your collection is a one that’s designed for even foundation coverage—especially if you want to achieve that natural, minimal look that mineral powder makeup is so well known for. Whether you’re using a setting powder, foundation, or one of our mineral powder sunscreens, you’ll find that a powder brush makes application easy.

While there are specific powder brushes for different products and application styles (such as contouring and highlighting vs. a simple layer of sheer coverage), a versatile powder brush is a good place to start. From allowing you to get the right angles to lightly dab blush or bronzer onto your cheeks to make sure no spot is missed when applying your foundation, a good powder brush will make creating a flawless complexion effortless.

IS IT BETTER TO APPLY POWDER WITH A BRUSH OR SPONGE?

Whether you’re using pressed or loose mineral face powders (or both), a brush is typically recommended for easier application. Using a powder brush allows you to create buildable coverage for a flawless, natural-looking finish. In most cases, sponges are better used for liquid formulas, so that you can blend and build coverage for a more dewy complexion.

The flexible bristles on a face powder brush allow you to deposit the makeup evenly across your face in a broad sweeping motion. You can then go back over your face using circular motions to buff out imperfections and create your ideal amount of coverage without your makeup looking packed on—make smaller circles for more coverage or larger sweeping circles for sheer to light coverage. This application technique wouldn’t be possible with a sponge.

Loose powder brushes give you a lot of control when blending and contouring your foundation, highlighter, or bronzer. And when you pair powder brushes with our HD mineral makeup, you’ll see how you can take your makeup look to the next level with a light, breathable application that’s comfortable and natural-looking.

WHAT IS THE BEST POWDER BRUSH?

Choosing a powder brush to achieve the best possible application can be a tough choice. There are virtually endless powder brushes on the market, but they’re not all created equally. If you’ve experimented with makeup brushes before, you know that some can be itchy or harsh on skin, others start to shed and fall apart almost immediately, and some simply don’t provide the smooth, even finish you’re striving for.

A good powder brush has a few key qualities that you should keep in mind when evaluating your options:

  • Soft bristles (to avoid irritation and harsh treatment of your skin)
  • Flexibility (for soft, well-blended application and easy-to-clean bristles)
  • Synthetic material (this is especially important if you have sensitive skin)
  • Well-made design (so that you can use it for years to come)

However, many powder brushes can do it all. Our face powder brushes are available in two styles: the self-dispensing brush and the kabuki brush. Our self-dispenser brush is attached to several of our mineral powder solutions, including our Loose Mineral Foundation Brush with SPF 20 (available in six shades ranging from light ivory to deep mocha) and our Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Brush-on Shield with SPF 50 (available in four shades—fair to deep).

Once you find the perfect powder brush to add to your collection, taking proper care of this new makeup tool is a must if you want to make the most of your investment. One important thing to keep in mind is that it’s essential to clean all of your makeup application tools, including your powder brush. Cleaning your brushes regularly is not only important for helping prevent breakouts, but it’s an easy way to prolong the life of your powder brush.

We have you covered with our brush cleaning wipes, which are specially formulated to clean mineral powder from your brushes. These wipes are a simplified solution to traditional makeup brush cleaning which requires you to wash your brushes with water and soap, then wait hours for them to dry. This routine isn’t necessarily difficult, but it can be inconvenient, especially if you wash your face powder brush on a weekly basis. Follow these three simple steps to clean your powder brush with our wipes:

  1. Hold your brushes upright in one hand and your cleaning wipe in the other
  2. Gently sweep your powder brush in circular motions across the wipe
  3. Repeat on a weekly basis to keep your powder brushes in their best condition and prevent debris from building up and clogging pores

Equipped with one of our powder brushes to apply your face makeup infused with SPF you can create that classic mineral powder look—a refreshed, youthful, and smooth-looking complexion—with minimal effort and optimal skin protection.
