Yalmeh Y19 premium quality Foundation brush

I have a bit of a collection of makeup brushes I must admit.  I tend to have them in sets and roll up pouches.  I like seeing the pretty brushes all neat and tidy in their sets and I love to keep them freshly washed and ready for their next use.  I have a few favorite, "go to" brushes that I like to always have.  I like kabuki brushes, eyeshadow brushes, blush and mineral foundation brushes, and lastly foundations brushes.  I normally use my tinted Korean brand BB cream as my foundation (Skin79 BB Pink) and then apply a mineral veil type power over to set it.  When I apply my BB cream, (after I have applied my moisturizer and my primer (Tarte Brightening or Bare Minerals Brightening Primer) I usually apply with a wet Beauty Blender sponge or a foundation brush.  I find both to be equally satisfying in application and finished look.

I was sent a foundation brush from the Yalmeh company.  They are a beauty company that specializes in hair and skincare products and tools.   The foundation brush has a doe foot shaped brush head and a comfortable and classy white wooden handle.  I like the thick brush handle and the length of the brush is perfect for me.  This washes up easily and I have not had any hair shed from the brush.  I wash it with unscented Castile soap and plain water.  I lay it to dry on a paper towel overnight. I do not use it for anything other that liquid foundation or BB cream, unless I decide to use a cream brush, then this has been used for that as well.  For powders I use a kabuku or flat kabuki brush.

To apply foundation (or in my case BB cream) I start around my nose and inner cheek area, then I lightly and gently blend outward in tiny sweeping motions.  I often use this brush and "stipple" my foundation / BB cream on my face.  I light to layer my foundation / coverage a little at a time, so as not to make it cakey.  I like this brush and find it suits me well. 

*This brush was sent to me from the company for an honest review.
