There are so many different makeup brushes on the market - so what makes the Aevitas foundation brush different to the others?
Finding the right foundation application method for you is easier said than done. Do you use for your fingers, sponge or a brush? If you're keen to try out a new method - or you are a brush applicator advocate - you might want to check out the new offering from Aussie makeup brand, Aevitas.
What is it?
The Tufty brush is specially designed for foundation, in order to give a fully professional finish. The company is keen on creating and developing natural products, so the brush is completely cruelty-free and vegan and the bristles are made from soft, synthetic materials that are densely packed.
Why is it different?
Probably the most notable point of difference is the chubby, thick handle and short, angled bristles that you don't see usually in a foundation brush. So, why have the Aevitas team chosen such a shape? "The slanted shape of the brush helps tackle hard to reach places. The compactly-packed bristles ensure streak-free application and next to no product waste." Something I'm sure we can all agree is awesome!
The thick handle is also great for gripping and blending, which I've certainly found is good for making short brush strokes and getting a good handle on those areas like under the eyes and around the nose, which can be tricky to navigate.
I have to say, I really like how the bristles are tough but not coarse, and I really feel like I can apply my primer and foundation with the Tufty.
How much is it?
Brushes can be quite expensive, but the Tufty foundation brush is only $35. Given that it's quite hard-wearing and made with high-quality materials, I think this represents great value for money.
Is it high maintenance?
Some makeup brushes - if not washed regularly - can be sticky, heavy and waxy as it holds on to all of your residual makeup.
Instead of using a special cleanser, the brush can be easily cleaned with a gentle shampoo. If you do this weekly, and wait for the bristles to completely dry before using it again, you can expect a long and happy life with your Tufty makeup brush.
