When the ob­jec­tive is a com­plex­ion that boasts a uni­form tone you’re likely to call on makeup that ap­pears in liq­uid form. From light­weight BB cream to vis­cous, full-cover­age foun­da­tion, a brush de­signed to dis­perse moist prod­uct and achieve smooth cover­age over the con­tours of the face kicks off the pros’ must-haves list.

Lando’s go-to fea­tures a round head with fine, densely-packed bris­tles. “It in­stantly and evenly buffs foun­da­tion into the skin, and also al­lows you to achieve the ideal cover­age you need,” he says, “you want to lightly buff prod­uct in small cir­cu­lar mo­tions, start­ing from the cen­tre of the face and then buff­ing out towards the edge.”

Choos­ing a domed or slanted brush shape, rather than a f lat foun­da­tion brush, makes this style of seam­less ap­pli­ca­tion easy for any­one. “Use it in a pat­ting mo­tion ver­sus swip­ing up and down to avoid streaks. And start with a small amount of prod­uct, pay­ing at­ten­tion to the ar­eas that need more cover­age,” says Fal­cao.
