The New Best Foundation Brush

Friends, I have a thing for foundation brushes. In fact, there are about 5 or 6 different ones in my brush rotation right now. They’re not all my favourites – in fact, there are some that I reach for first, and a few that I reach for only if all the other ones are dirty. […]
