Q: I'm not a makeup artist but love using a brush to apply my foundation what kind of foundation brush do you suggest for someone like me?
A: I have tested out a few different foundation bushes during the past year in search of one that not only feels comfortable to use but that actually gets the job done and isn't a pain to clean. The foundation brush I kept going back to believe or not was the one from the Joe Fresh Beauty line.
It costs $12 cdn and is easily available at most Loblaws and Superstores here in Canada. (I believe Joe Fresh is only available in Canada sorry my American friends).
I find the clear short handle not only sleek but super comfy for my small hands, the brush is thick and soft and in my opinion would do a fab job for makeup artist or beauty lovers alike!
You can see here im a fan of most Joe Fresh products and although I haven't tried any other their other brushes the foundation brush is one of my favs :)
Q: Ive been using Mac Foundations for a while now and they just seem so heavy on my face and come off when I touch my face, can you suggest any other foundations that don't feel heavy for me?
A: I'm really not a fan of Mac foundations to be honest. I find they tend to clog pores, sit heavy on your face and come off on the jackets of the men we hug! Also I find they don't photograph as nice as other foundations do. I no longer carry any Mac foundations in my kit or have any for personal use for these vary reasons.
If you have been reading my blog you know I'm a huge fan of Face Atelier's ultra pro foundations. They feel super light on your skin, are buildable and actually stays on your face! They are available online at FaceAtelier.com but if you are looking for something more easily available I would suggest Makeup Forever's Face & Body foundations (available at Sephora) for ladies with pink undertones and Vasanti's Liquid Cover up/foundation (see website for locations) for us ladies with yellow undertones.
