But then Tilbury Team makeup artist Tegan Rice shook my entire beauty world up with a small—but game changing—secret: You just need a big brush, and you're good. "Use a powder brush for foundation so that it appears sheer," she tells me as she applies a Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation ($44) to my face. "The bigger the brush, the more of a blend you get, while more dense means the more full-coverage."
She's right—once she finished applying the foundation to my skin, I looked into a mirror and was shook by how natural my complexion still looked. Like, I could still see my freckles, and it looked like just a whisper of coverage (but also just... so good). It changed me and now I have heart-eyes out for foundation—I'm ready to use it, guys. Some big brush options you could throw into your makeup bag for the trick include Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Complexion Brush ($55), which is what Rice used on me, or the Hourglass Powder Brush No. 1 ($65), or even Fenty Beauty's Powder Puff Setting Brush ($34). The bigger the better.
So you no longer have to worry about a foundation going on like a thick coat of paint—grab a big brush, and blend, baby, blend.
