My skin has never gotten along with makeup brushes. Using them to apply powder to my forehead would inevitably leave me with breakouts, and even gently dusting shadow onto my lids (where my eczematous skin tends to be its driest and most sensitive) would cause irritation and flaking. To avoid all of this—especially during the colder months, when my skin is more volatile—I've typically steered clear of makeup brushes, but my hiatus ended when I found Merit's Blending Brush ($30).
This easy-to-use and lightweight brush is made of vegan and pillow-y soft bristles that transfer makeup to your face in just one sweep. Use it to buff, blend, or contour your pressed powders, highlighter, and blush.
How I liked Merit's blending brush
To put it simply, all of the issues I've had with makeup brushes in the past just... don't exist with this one.
It's made with vegan bristles and feels pillowy soft to the stroke so that it doesn't piss off my easy-to-anger skin. What's more, the bristles as packed into a lightweight, minimalist cylinder that's easy to hold and maneuver. The whole brush measures just shy of the length of my hand, making it easy to pop into my purse or bag whenever I need to touch up on the go.
