You can use it for liquid or powder foundation, bronzer, etc. Blush also goes in that category, although I myself would be nervous to use it as a blush brush. The reason being, the soft bristles expand & would probably apply blush in a larger radius than you may want. There is a Pro Airbrush Blush Brush #54 for $32 that I highly recommend.. It's much smaller.

Honestly, I am going to (very) respectfully disagree with the responders who said this brush can't be used for blush. But, that said, it depends on what you want to use it with.

The reason why I'm disagreeing is that, while the brushes of years past were made for very specific products, makeup formulas have changed quite a bit in recent years. People are using products that have a completely different consistency. Even powder blushes have a different finish to them and the issue of product fallout with them is really starting to become a thing of the past. That means that if you have a very moisture-rich powder formula or a cream blush pot (or a gel blush, even) you can easily use an airbrush finish brush to apply that product.

Now, you'll want to experiment and each product and skin type is different, but in general, if you use a lighter hand and blend in soft circles, you will end up with a very airbrushed finish for nearly any product you apply, be it liquid, powder or creme.

Personally, I have two of these and I use one for my Bobbi Brown cream blush application, but I've also used a clean brush on the Urban Decay Naked bronzer trio with similar success.

I would suggest using this for liquid or powder foundation. Blush brushes are designed to pick up just the right amount of product. You may find this brush to be too dense and too large for blush application. If you're going to buy a brush for a specific purpose, you might as well buy it for the right one!

I use Dawn Dish Soap and Olive Oil. Just mix the two and use it as a cleaner. Use warm water to rinse the cleaner and make sure your brushes are pointed downward as you let them dry because the water can get in the barrel and ease the glue between the parts of your brush and wreck them.

Sephora sells a nice brush cleaner solution, it's cheap and you should use it every day after each application to clean your brush. Smells nice and keeps the brush clean.

Use the sephora brush cleaner spray, then wipe the brush vigorously on tissue. Once a week, use a couple drops of baby shampoo with warm water being careful to not submerge the bristles in water.

I use a daily brush cleaner after every use. About once or twice a week, I clean the brush with a brush shampoo. I have also used baby shampoo. A sephora rep also suggested to use a conditioner (regular hair conditioner) to keep the brush soft. The angle the brush downwards when drying.

Mine had a plastic cap with cellophane wrap around it. After removing the cellophane, the cap has a hinged lid at the top. Open the hinged lid and then slide the cap down in the direction of the handle.

I would say so. This handle is longer and the bristles do feel a little softer with the newer brush. If you have the silver #55, and it's still working for you, no need for an upgrade.

I use the #55 for bronzer and love the application. I believe the product is well-dispersed because of the longer bristle length (in comparison to the #56). Since I'm going for very light bronzer application because I'm fair, the #55 is perfect.

I bought it to use with EL dblwear and it is the best I have found. It is better than flat foundation brushes and will give an airbrushed application, just remember it is a bit larger and adjust amount od product accordingly. I found it took a few applications to get it just right as I sometimes use a tinted moisturizer type product so its great for all types of liquid coverage and is the best in my opinion, esp compared to the EL brush that is often suggested with the foundation.

In my opinion, this brush works very well with most liquid foundations, including Double Wear. However, I do use a damp sponge to sheer out full-coverage foundations over my dry patches.

Depends if you are doing liquid or powder foundation. I think this brush is best for powder foundation. The flat foundation brushes are best for liquid foundation. I tap the foundation upside down, then turn it right side up and tap it a couple times more. When I remove the cap there is a light dusting in the cap. Swirl the brush in the cap and then you brush it on your face in small circular motions. The Sephora consultant showed me, and told me not to be afraid to use pressure when applying it to your skin! Don't just lightly swish it over your skin. Once you use up the dusting in the cap, lightly dab the brush in the powder and swirl the brush in the cap to coat all the bristles evenly. Then apply again on the face. It might take a bit to get used to how much to apply (it differs makeup-to-makeup). I usually start with under eyes and lids, then the cheeks, then the chin, then the forehead & nose. I finish it off by not dipping the brush in foundation again, and just running the brush all over my face to make sure it's smooth and covered. I hope this wasn't too confusing and helped!

I put on moisturizer first then I put on BB cream. I put my concealer on over any red spots I have and then I apply my foundation last. I pump it on to my brush and then apply it to my face. I use to use this brush too! It makes your face look airbrushed.

I washed my brush by putting a bit of dish sop onto a plate with a bit of olive oil . You tske your brush and swirl it into the mixture and then rise it off and repeat if needed. The dish soap washes its brushes and gives it a nice clean scent while the olive oil prevents your brush from falling apart by keeps moisture in the brush. Its worked on all my brushess (:

Mine lasted about six months and the top started to come unglued to the stick. I think it might have been a faulty one because the brush itself is still in good condition.

answer 2
I have not used these, but the 56 appears to be more dense which will give a heavier coverage, but if you buff it in too much it will take off some of the product. I've heard that the 55 is a little fluffy for a foundation brush which allows you to blend it more without removing product, and build coverage if needed.
