I was just wondering if it is worth getting a stippling brush? I have a foundation brush already but you use it like you are painting your face..lol. Any thoughts?
ThanksJuly 7, 2012 at 12:14 pm #180166
I think some foundations are better applied with a stippling or buffing brush. My favourite is the Sigma F80.July 7, 2012 at 4:28 pm #180220
Its definitely worth it! I used to just use a foundation brush, but I found the finish to be streaky and not as flawless. Right now Im alternating between the Sonia Kashuk and ELF stippling brush. I still use my foundation brush to place the foundation where I want it, and then follow up with the stippling brush to blend.July 7, 2012 at 6:07 pm #180241
I LOVE my stippling brush. Using that and the Beauty Blender are the only two ways I apply my foundation. They both give amazing airbrushed effects and are definitely worth the purchase. I got the Makeup Geek one when it was in stock and I couldn’t be happier. Even my hubby noticed a difference…and that’s saying a lot!July 8, 2012 at 11:59 am #180264
Honestly I used to apply foundation with my fingers and couldn’t be bothered with any brush, as I mostly thought that brushes sucked up more products and took more time, and with flat brushes, the result can be streaky.
However after having gone to makeup school I have taken the habit of using a brush, but the only kind I like are the bigh fat stippling brushes So yes, if I had to get one only, I’d get a stippling brushJuly 9, 2012 at 8:02 pm #180471
I love using a stippling brush for my foundation. My favorite is from Real techniques. IMHO it’s better than other stippling brushes because it’s a bit stiffer. I also like using the buffing brush and the expert face brush from RT. Plus the price is rightJuly 10, 2012 at 12:57 pm #180544
I am in love with my Stippling brush. I go back and forth between that and my beauty blender. The stippling brush puts a bit of heavier coverage on than the blender. So on days that I know that I will be out all day or in the sun, stippling brush is the way to go.July 11, 2012 at 6:12 am #180651
i use my mug stippling brush and it gives nice coverageJuly 17, 2012 at 4:21 am #181480
hi i am on a very tight budget and would like to know two things
1.are stippling brushes really worth it
2.if the really are where can i find a good quality cheap oneJuly 17, 2012 at 11:04 am #181629
Yes they are definitely worth it. I got my Elf one for 3$, they are super hard to find in stores. If you order it online youll probably end up paying about 10$ total including shipping.July 18, 2012 at 8:39 am #181946
Completely worth it @taylor! I’ve tried many many different brushes and the one that I always come back to is the Makeup Geek Foundation Stippling Brush. It is a bit pricey at $16.99, but it is totally worth your money. MUG has many sales! You may just want to wait for a sale! I may be able to figure out when the next one is! If you have any further questions, don’t be afraid to contact me! firstname.lastname@example.orgJuly 26, 2012 at 12:39 pm #183350
Definately worth it, i have the Mac 188 and the Mac 130 & i dont know what i would do without them, worth the investment!July 26, 2012 at 1:00 pm #183351
What technique is the best to apply foundation using stippling brush? do you dub it or use circular motions?July 26, 2012 at 1:49 pm #183357
@fanta: I use small circular motions to buff the foundation into the skin. But don’t press too hard! The bristles on the brush shouldn’t be bent in half or anything.July 26, 2012 at 4:45 pm #183385
Thanks for asking this question! I was curious as well!
