How to use the Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush:
Very Full Coverage: Dot your foundation around your face and use the brush in small circular motions to blend out
Standard Full Coverage: Pump foundation directly onto bristles of brush and use in circular motions on face
Medium Coverage: I like to pump a dime sized amount of foundation on my wrist, or the back of my hand and dunk the bristle ends of the brush very lightly in the foundation and blend out on face in larger circular motions
DIOR BACKSTAGE FOUNDATION BRUSH
Light to Medium Coverage: I like to pump foundation out on the back of my hand or wrist and dip the end of the bristles in the foundation and sweep onto my face like a paint brush up and down and side to side. I will stick one layer on for light coverage. If I want more coverage, I will put another layer on top of the first layer.
How to clean foundation brushes:
The best way to clean this brush is to buy a brush cleaning solution to soak it in. My favorite is MAC's Brush Cleanser because it removes extra makeup and residue, disinfects and conditions the brush. I take a paper cup and pour a small amount in the bottom, and put the brush bristles down to soak for a bit to dissolve the foundation (since foundation can stick itself pretty good in the dense fibers), and after an hour or so, I will put a small amount of baby shampoo, regular shampoo, or even my Bath & Body Works Antibacterial Soap in my hand and swirl the bristles around for a little bit to get all nice and soapy. I rinse it by letting the water drain over my hand while I am still swirling. I might repeat if it is really dirty. TIP: There is usually a metal ring on the handle of your brush by the bristles, NEVER get the the top of the ring (where it attaches to the handle) wet!!! That is where your bristles are glued to the brush, and getting it wet will dissolve the glue over time, and the brush will fall apart. I like to shake the brush out to get the water out and lay it on a towel or a flat surface with the bristles hanging over the edge to properly dry. Once dry, you can reshape the bristles by running over your hand a few times.
