When one lands in a makeup and cosmetics business, one feels overwhelmed by the choices available in the wholesale market. It is especially true for makeup brushes. The market is literally inundated with a variety of makeup brushes to serve the users’ purposes.
And then there are customization requests by the makeup artists who insist on new designs. These new designs increase the bandwidth of makeup brushes available in the market. So, it is natural for manufacturers, traders, and retailers to face challenges to serve the customers’ ever-changing demands.
This applies to the availability of the number of foundation brushes. There are a lot of makeup brushes that could apply the foundation. We will see in this article what foundation means in makeup. We will also be exploring different foundation makeup brushes. More importantly, we will discuss the mini foundation brush in detail.
What is foundation makeup?
The foundation is like the first layer of makeup. It acts as a base or groundwork for other layers of makeup. Thus, this foundation corrects the tone of the skin and covers the imperfections. This layer gives an airbrushed look and has a certain texture and color. The foundation can be powder, cream, liquid, or gel.
Can it be possible for a single tool to be compatible with all types of foundations? Certainly, not. There are not only multiple tools and brushes but also different methods and strategies for applying foundation to the face. The user is the absolute authority to choose a foundation of her liking and the tools to apply that foundation to her face.
We are not going into much detail related to foundations as any qualified makeup expert would do that for you. So, let us start discussing some brushes that work well for foundation makeup!
Kabuki brush has dense and fluffy bristles. Another recognizable feature of Kabuki brushes is their short wooden handles; however, there are variations too in this regard. It gives full coverage when applying foundation makeup. Kabuki brush is mostly good for powdered foundations. The limitation of the Kabuki brush is that it is not good for liquid foundations.
Kabuki brush has its origins in Japan. Kabuki artists used these brushes to wear heavy makeup. Traditionally, kabuki brushes have had natural bristles. But synthetic fiber kabuki brushes are preferred today. You can learn more about kabuki brush history here.
Foundation powder brush
The foundation powder brush is similar to the Kabuki brush in many aspects. A distinguishing feature between kabuki brushes and powder brushes is that kabuki brushes give fuller coverage. Powder brushes are preferred when the user wants lighter coverage. What to choose, a kabuki brush or powder brush depends on users’ preferences.
Stipple brush is another foundation makeup brush that a user can’t afford to miss. The advantage of stipple brushes is that these brushes are compatible with all types of foundations: liquid, cream, gel, and powder. Stipple brushes have dual layers of bristles. The bristles are dense.
The Oval brush
These tools are the largest of other foundation makeup brushes. The oval foundation makeup brush can sometimes give a perfect airbrushed look. It is because the bristles are dense and fluffy. The oval brush may give you a sponge-like feeling.
Sponges and puffs
There are many other foundation makeup brushes we could enlist for you. But before that, we feel a need to discuss sponges and puffs with you. It is because sponges and cushion puffs are popular for applying foundation. Handling makeup brushes may require a specific skill, whereas using sponges to damp makeup foundations is easy. Another advantage of sponges and puffs is that these are good for all types of foundations: cream, liquid, gel, and powder.
The disadvantage associated with sponges and puffs is that they may waste your foundation in the process. Also, they are less hygienic as compared to makeup brushes. We feel you are surprised by our discussion of sponges and puffs as we must have limited ourselves to makeup brushes. Please don’t be. We also offer an extensive range of sponges and puffs to our wholesale customers.
Mini foundation brush
There are many other makeup brushes that could apply foundation and are worth our discussion. But we want to cut things short as we have to discuss the mini foundation makeup brush in detail.
So, the question is why there are mini makeup brushes in the first place. Mini makeup brushes are compact. Thus, they are easy to carry while traveling. Customers often demand a set of mini makeup brushes for that matter. It is just like a makeup tool kit consisting of essential makeup brushes in a mini format. How many makeup brushes do include in that kit? It is not fixed.
So, if you have any new ideas related to mini makeup brushes, do contact us here. For now, let us focus on our main topic.
Mini foundation brushes are short, occupy lesser space, and are thus easy to carry. A set of mini makeup brushes always include mini foundation brushes because of their importance and usefulness.
The length of a mini foundation brush ranges from 6 cm to 12 cm. Obviously, there are some variations too.
The bristles in a foundation brush are dense and tightly interspersed. The coverage or surface area of a mini foundation brush is less than other foundation brushes.
Of course, the primary function of a mini foundation brush is to apply foundation. And because of its smaller coverage area, it can reach areas that are hard to reach for other foundation brushes.
Makeup experts also use a mini foundation brush for concealer touchups. A mini foundation brush can also be used to apply the highlighter. Thus, the mini foundation brush is a multi-purpose tool and its uses are profound.
Many makeup brushes serve the purpose of applying foundation. But still, customers may demand mini foundation brushes. Mini foundation bruises are portable and can serve multiple purposes. Even a handbag can carry a set of mini makeup brushes. So, if you plan to add mini foundation brushes to your stock, please let us know.
