ACE YOUR BASE
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.
