In last months Top five brush post I picked five foundation brushes suitable for liquid and cream bases. This month focus is on foundation brushes for powder, tricky to compile having already covered Kabukis but I’ll give it a go…
Bare Faced Beauty – Pump Action Powder Dispensing Brush (yep, you heard me!)
I love a space saving product and this one has to be one of the handiest I’ve seen in a while. Perfect for travelling or when you are out and about this brush will hold all the powder, foundation, blush or Bronzer you will need for the day. Simply click the end and the bristles begin to fill with your chosen product. Genius!

Jane Iredale – The Handi Brush
This goat hair brush is fantastic for applying loose mineral bases, powders and bronzers and the super-soft, hand tied bristles pick up and distribute the powder evenly over the face.
£23.45 from Mineral Beauty
Real Techniques – Powder Brush
Light weight and great value the Real Techniques brushes don’t disappoint when it comes to easy application. The Powder brush has long synthetic bristles, perfect for picking up mineral foundations.
£10.95 from Cocktail Cosmetics
Neve Cosmetics – Flatbuki Brush
A lovely multipurpose synthetic brush from the Italian brand who brought us the super cute Kawaii Kabuki. The long and densly packed bristles are beautifully straight and are great for applying and buffing in both powder and liquid foundations.
£9.95 from CutECOsmetics
Everyday Minerals – Foundation Brush
It looks like a regular foundation brush but in actual fact it is great for applying powder mineral foundations. Perfect for those of you who don’t like a kabuki or blunt ended brush and good value too :)
