hi hilary! so i know this isn't a drugstore product, but i was wondering if you've ever used the tarte amazonian clay foundation before. it's pretty thick and full coverage and i was wondering what kind of brush i should use to apply it? thanks, i really love your blog!

Hey there!  Whenever people use my actual name on here I always get excited haha.

This is NOT just a drugstore blog… the slogan for DrugstorePrincess is “Beauty Advice for Every Budget”, so never feel afraid to ask questions about your higher-end products as well!  Tarte’s Amazonian Clay foundations is actually one of my favorites.  I love that it gives really full coverage without looking or feeling too thick on my skin!  

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Foundation - $38

Because this is a thicker foundation, I like to use a brush that’s a bit more dense.  With a full coverage product like this it’s important to really buff it into the skin in order to make it look natural.  Here are a few brushes I like for that task.

ELF Studio Powder Brush - $3

This is a dense, affordable, flat-topped brush that I use for just about everything.


Sephora Professional Airbrush Foundation Brush #56 - $32

This is a great brush.  It’s a cross between a rounded buffing brush and a traditional flat foundation brush.


Sigma Flat Top Kabuki Brush - $21

This is a really high quality dense brush that buffs foundation flawlessly into the skin.


Real Techniques “Buffing Brush” from the Core Collection - $18

$18 for a full set of good quality face brushes is a steal.  The buffing brush from this kit has a cult following and it’s a really nice round brush for applying complexion products.


Hope these recommendations work for you!  :)  Thank you so much for following!
