My favorite foundation brush is the M.A.C 130. It leaves me with the smoothest application in the least amount of work. While the price tag is an unbelievable $42, it does an amazing job. The only downfall to this brush, that I really wasn’t expecting, is that it sheds. The very first time I used it, I had 3-4 bristles scattered across my face. 

If you’re looking for a similar brush, that works just as well with less than a fifth of the price tag, I recommend e.l.f’s small stipple brush. This was the first foundation brush I bought that really buffed in my foundation for a really natural appearance. With a price tag of only $3 you can’t go wrong. Also, in my experience this brush doesn’t shed at all. 

That goes to show, you don’t have to spend a bunch of money for great cosmetics.
