5 Ways To Use Your Oxygenetix Smooth Finish Multi-Use Foundation Brush
The Oxygenetix Smooth Finish Foundation Brush has "Multi-Use" on the box it comes in for a reason. Not only can you achieve a flawless foundation application with this brush, you can also use it for other makeup products in the same setting, or separately.
This eco-friendly foundation brush is composed of natural plant fibers in the handle and vegan bristles. It was crafted to work perfectly with Oxygenetix Foundations. As a multi-purpose tool, here are tips for best practices and more ways you can use Oxygenetix Smooth Finish Brush in your makeup application today.
Applying Liquid Foundation
Let's start with the most common use of the Oxygenetix Smooth Finish foundation brush: applying liquid foundation. Here's how to do it for a seamless finish:
Prep Your Skin: Start with a clean, moisturized face. Applying a primer like the Oxygenetix Hydro-Matrix moisturizer can help your foundation go on smoothly and last longer.
Dispense Your Foundation: Place a small amount of Oxygenetix Foundation on the back of your hand or a palette.
Dab and Swipe: Dip the foundation brush into the product and dab it onto your face, using a gentle tapping motion to get the most coverage. Focus on the center (nose, forehead, chin) first. Then, use gentle strokes to blend the foundation outward toward your hairline and jawline. Blend thoroughly for a natural finish.
Blend, Blend, Blend: The key to flawless foundation is blending. Spend extra time on areas that need more coverage and make sure there are no harsh lines.
Blending Your Contour
The Oxygenetix Smooth Finish foundation brush can double as a contour brush for cream products. Here's how to sculpt your features using contour:
Apply cream contour along the hollows of your cheeks, jawline, and sides of your nose. Use the foundation brush to blend the contour lines for a chiseled look. Use a light tapping and blending motion, staying true to the lines you are trying to shape.
Apply Cream Highlight
You can also use the Smooth Finish brush to lighten areas with some cream highlighter. Apply cream highlighter on the high points of your face, such as the tops of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and your cupid's bow. Blend using the same brush for a luminous effect.
Applying Liquid or Cream Blush
The Smooth Finish Foundation brush can also be used for blush application, especially for liquid or cream blushes:
Dot a small amount of liquid or cream blush on your cheeks. Use the foundation brush to blend it in using gentle, circular motions. The brush's bristles help diffuse the color for a soft, natural flush.
You can build up the blush gradually to achieve your desired level of color intensity.
Costume Makeup Application
In addition to everyday makeup looks, the Smooth Finish brush is a great tool to use for costume makeup and more extensive applications. Since this brush is high quality and can withstand many washes, you can use it over and over again. Colored makeup will wash right out with gentle soap and water, or a bit of oil in some cases for stubborn colors.
From achieving a flawless foundation base to sculpting your features and even applying blush, this brush is more than meets the eye. So, dust off that foundation brush and get creative with your makeup routine!
