I no longer use mineral makeup for various reasons not least of which problems with color matching is one and untold reactions are another. I’m presently happy with my powder foundations from various brands and I don’t intend to stray 🙂
That said, with the Everyday Minerals Flat Top brush mocking me for abandoning mineral foundation, I had to find another use for it. And find it I did!
The Everyday Minerals flat top brush is excellent for applying powder foundation!
All the benefits of the flat top brush comes to play when using powder foundations as with mineral foundation. The packed synthetic bristles are super soft on the skin and easy to wash (although it takes AGES to dry) and it applies powder foundation like a dream.
With a flat top, the Everyday Minerals brush picks up powder easily and you can buff it into the skin too to create a more even finish. In fact, I’ve found that with slight buffing, I take the powder further thereby using less product on my face, yet giving enough coverage.The coverage is also more natural and sheer and less cakey than if I was to use a sponge. It offers slightly better coverage than a fluffy powder brush too.
So, like many happy owners of this little brush marvel, I will stick to using the Everyday Minerals flat top brush to apply my powder foundations. I’m a happy camper!
It does take a while to dry after washing. Unlike my other brushes, this one takes at least 2.5 days to fully dry. Sometimes I cheat and run my hair dryer quickly over it when I’m drying my hair so its semi dry, before air drying, but I don’t do it often for fear of spoiling it.
Pros: Soft bristles, Picks up color easily, Gives a smooth look to the foundation, Affodable
Cons: Takes forever and a day … and a half to dry
